Jon Stewart went straight to the burning question Tuesday night when Hillary Clinton stopped by “The Daily Show.”
“I think I speak for everyone when I say no one cares, they just want to know if you’re running for president,” Stewart told Clinton, who appeared on the show to promote her memoir “Hard Choices.”
“You know, I was going to make an announcement, but you kind of spoiled it for me,” Clinton joked.
So to help the former secretary of state find her next calling, Stewart asked Clinton to go through an aptitude test. Clinton joked that she preferred a home office with “fewer corners” — Stewart was trying to get her to allude to the Oval Office — and she said she’s learned to put up with incessant criticism.
“So it sounds like to me, if I may, you’ve declared for president,” Stewart said.
The potential Clinton 2016 campaign was cemented for Stewart when he asked about her widely criticized “dead broke” comment. Clinton said the remark was “inartful,” then shifted to talking about how hard it is for young people today to be upwardly mobile.
“That says to me you’re running for president, how easily you pivoted from that to talking about income inequality in America,” Stewart teased.
