Jon Stewart on Mike Huckabee's Holocaust comments: Rendered speechless on Daily Show

Posted on

Comedy Central

Jon Stewart usually spends each episode of The Daily Show trying to fit in as much as he can say about the day’s given topic, but when it came to a recent comment from presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, he took a wordless approach.

“[President Obama is] so naïve, he would basically trust the Iranians and he would take the Israelis and basically march them to the door of the oven,” Huckabee said in a radio interview following the announcement of Obama’s deal with the Iranians.

Stewart responded to Huckabee’s controversial statements without uttering a single word. Instead, he acted out his response, recreating the movement of his cartoonishly beating heart and letting out a few frustrated cries, but never once using an actual word.

Watch Stewart’s silent movie-esque performance below.
