VIDEO: Jon Stewart Sets His Sights on Mitt Romney and Chris Christie

Jon Stewart opened last night’s show with the briefest of nods to Obama’s “very predictable” State of the Union address. “Obama took the stage and did his usual, ‘America bad; America’s enemies [are] right. He burnt a flag; Biden mooned; he dropped the mic. That was it.”

Of more interest to Stewart was what’s coming up next. The 2016 presidential election is a mere year and nine months away, so this is a natural time for the media to start obsessing over it. Stewart played along, cycling through the current GOP frontrunners and explaining why none of them have any right to run the United States. Watch him make fun of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham, and “our once and future non-president,” Mitt Romney.
