Jon Stewart: ‘Donald Trump Is the Candidate Version of Hot Dog Crust Pizza’

Jon Stewart has been attempting to avoid the topic of Donald Trump, but he couldn’t resist slinging this one-liner

Would you compare Donald Trump to a pizza?

Jon Stewart tried for a long time to avoid the subject of Donald Trump’s presidential candidacy, but, as he said on The Daily Show this week, “You know what? I'm tired of fighting it. It's the summer. Why can't we just have a little fun? We'll get back to school in the fall, hit the books, get serious about our future, but until then what's the harm in a little summer fling?"

He said that covering Trump is “so much fun,” and compared the Republican (or possibly Independent) candidate to Pizza Hut’s hot dog crust pizza.

"Donald Trump is the candidate version of the hot dog crust pizza," Stewart said, in reference to the infamous menu item. "You don't want it, you never ordered it, you can't believe someone came up with it, but now it's all you want to eat."


Trump recently made waves in the culinary community after chefs Geoffrey Zakarian and José Andrés dropped out of their agreements with the upcoming Washington, D.C., Trump Hotel in the wake of his disparaging comments about immigrants.
