Jon Stewart is clearly tired of covering the endless 2012 campaign antics. On Wednesday, while covering Donald Trump’s latest escapade and Sarah Palin decrying President Obama’s “shuck and jive” on Libya, the “Daily Show’ host got his footage confused.
“I’m sorry, that wasn’t Donald Trump essentially trying to publicly extort the President of the United States. That was a gorilla eating its own shit,” Stewart said.
And looking at Palin’s statement, Stewart showed an equally crude tape of a hippopotamus.
“I don’t know how I ended up confusing these images.”
