Jon Stewart Nips Mayoral Speculation in the Bud


Apparently Jon Stewart, one of the many celebrity guest stars in the New York Times Magazine’s profile of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin, hasn’t read his longtime friend’s “post-scandal playbook.” While talking with Ken Burns about his Central Park Five documentary, Stewart wondered why the city won’t just settle with the five men wrongly convicted of rape to show how far it’s come in the past 25 years. Burns exclaimed, “Jon Stewart for president!,” but as Stewart explains in the video below, we won’t see him toss his hat in the ring, or a crotch shot up on Twitter.
