Donald Trump Accuses Jon Stewart of "Racist Rant" Against Herman Cain

by at . Comments

Jon Stewart is facing Donald Trump's wrath (been too long since we heard from him on political matters) after making what the latter calls a "racist rant" about Herman Cain.

Specifically, Trump took issue with the comedian's commentary on the GOP presidential candidate's confusing denial of sexual harassment charges during the 1990s.

Stewart likened Cain's answer to being asked "Have you ever kidnapped a baby?" only to respond, "No. Well, other than the Lindbergh baby." Funny? Not to Trump ...

Trump was upset about Stewart's imitation of Herman Cain, saying, "It's not what he said, but the way he said. The tone of his voice, the inflection. Unbelievable."

He called out officials saying they're letting Stewart "get away" with it.

"Other people get taken off the air, and when he [Stewart] says it, people smile and sort of say, 'Wow, I can't believe he gets away with that,'" Trump explained.

Trump said others are lambasted for non-political correctness, but never Stewart, even if he does "a horrible, horrible thing to the African-American community."

Whether or not this constitutes "horrible" is a matter of opinion, clearly. But maybe Don should look back at a certain pot-stirring crusade he waged not long ago.

On the flip side, Stewart does go after certain people harder than others, and with a very different style. If that's the Donald's point, it's not totally off base.

Jon's primary target seems to be media coverage of Cain, not the Republican candidate himself, though. Is Trump overreacting or was Stewart just offensive?

Since when did Donald Trump get the right to speak for black people? Hell, I don't know any white people who would let him speak for them. The Herman Cain piece admittedly wasn't as funny as the Rick Perry bit but it surely wasn't racist. This is shaping up to be a lesser of evils voting year.

The Donald was wrong on this one. If he thinks this is bad he should have seen the Jon Stewart "I am Herman Cain and I hate to read" segmemt.

I couldn't agree with Trump more if I tried but things are not looking good for GOP because everytime they open their mouths they put their foot in it but I know one thing I am NOT voting for Obama or maybe his name is Barry Soetoro or maybe his name is Harrison J Bounel who knows and I care.

Mr. Goodhair must be propping up Mr. Cain's profile in order to have him as a contestant on the next version of semi-celebrity apprentice. This idiot (Trump) only seems to crawl out from under a rock whenever he wants to self-promote. The said part is that the press always allows him to get away with it.
