Jon Stewart appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show last night, and the two sparred over the Tea Party, Fox News and President Obama.

On Obama, O’Reilly argued that the President has “separated himself from the folks,” which Stewart found endlessly hilarious. “That sounds like a meaningless thing to say,” Stewart said, but added: “I agree with the sentiment that he ran as a visionary and he has led as a functionary.”

Stewart also told O’Reilly that “the Tea Party scares you as much as it scares anybody.”

“Look what they did to Rove,” he said. “Oh that poor boy. The spanking that he received.”Stewart continued that when it comes to Fox News, O’Reilly has “been overtaken by a more extreme version of you.” On Fox News, Stewart chided O’Reilly, “you’re left-wing.”

“I think deep down inside,” Stewart said, “you can’t believe what you’ve unleashed.”
