• Jon Stewart Slobbers Over Obama One Last Time Before Exiting ‘The Daily Show’

    Jon Stewart warned President Obama, during the president’s final visit to The Daily Show on Tuesday, that he needs to act quickly if he’s going to “take away Americans’ guns and declare martial law.”

    Stewart pointed out that Obama has “about a year” left in office.

    “You don’t have that much time to take away Americans’ guns [and] declare martial law. If you’re going to do that, you better get started,” Steward advised Obama. “There’s an ebb and flow to every administration, to every president. It appears that you’re feeling it right now.” “

    Obama said “a lot of the work that [his administration] did early starts bearing fruit later” like Obamacare and the Iran deal.

    “The way I’m feeling right now is. I’ve got 18 months and there are a bunch of other things we want to get done.” He then listed climate change as one of those things.

    Stewart asked Obama to explain the Iran deal.

    “They’re an adversary. They’re anti-American, anti-Israel, they sponsor terrorist organizations like Hezbollah,” Obama said. “You don’t make peace with your friends.”

    “When you hear critics talk about, ‘Well it’s a bad deal and we could have gotten a better deal,’ you ask them, ‘Well, what represents a better deal? What is it you think could happen?’ Typically they’re vague and they fall back on, ‘Well, if you’d beat your chest a little bit more or if you’d brought Dick Cheney to the negotiations,” he continued.

    “I guarantee you, if people feel strongly about making sure Iran doesn’t get a nuclear weapon, without going to war—and that is expressed to Congress—eventually the political system responds, despite the money, despite the lobbyists,” Obama added.

    “After seven years [in office], is that the advice that you then bequeath to future President Trump?” Stewart joked.

    “Well I’m sure the Republicans are enjoying Mr. Trump’s dominance,” Obama chuckled.

    “Anything that makes them look less crazy,” Stewart grumbled.
