Yes and I'm an Independent
He's a complete sell out to the left and fairly blatant about it. You want another Marxist in office, a dishonest one, then go ahead and vote for him. I wouldn't vote for him as dog catcher.

Republicans are the best argument for Marxism there is.

Just look at those fools!

No. Being funny and likable doesn't necessarily make for a good leader, or a wise one. He has no political experience. He's a comedian. I like Jon Stewart but there's no way to tell how he'd fare in a pressure situation away from his set, and I'm not sure how comfortable I'd be with him heads up in negotiations with say, Vladimir Putin for example. I have a hunch the former KGB colonel wouldn't find him very intimidating or amusing. I don't think most world leaders would.

Vote for him for what? We have a comedian in the White House now. Once is enough.

Would I vote for him in an election? Probably. Would I support him in the primaries? Probably not.

For what? State Congress? No, I would not vote for him.

Trump and Jon Stewart aren't in the same category. Or in the same mental age group, for that matter. We know Trump can't pull himself together when facing criticism or disagreement. Jon Stewart, on the other hand, has proven time and time again that he can do just that without mindlessly insulting others.

That doesn't mean either should be president of the US, but Stewart is far and away more presidential and more respectable than anything we've seen of Trump.

What has John Stewart actually accomplished where you see he's done anything except talk.
