Jon Stewart Explains His “Secret” White House Meetings with Obama on ‘The Daily Show’

Earlier this week, Fox News pounced on the news that Jon Stewart and President Obama had “secret” meetings in the White House, so for last night’s Daily Show he decided to address the the news head-on. “Let me say this: I have been summoned by a surprisingly wide variety of individuals over the years — from tech giants to financial captains to to Billy Joel,” Stewart said, “and the general thrust of all of those meetings or phone conversations are the same. Basically it’s this: ‘Jon, why are you such an asshole?'” Stewart also revealed that there was actually one “secret” meeting he went to, but it was with someone Fox News might be less excited to pick apart on TV.
