Jon Huntsman Punked By Jon Stewart on Twitter

by at . Comments

Jon Stewart and The Daily Show staff pulled a fast one on GOP Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman over Twitter. What did the comedian do to his namesake?

Well, the Republican, who is active on social media, held a "Twitter Town Hall meeting" on Tuesday, asking followers to send him questions via hashtag #Q4Jon.

Stewart, obviously, thought up a fun prank and asked his Twitter followers to "tweet actor Jon Hamm your questions by 4:15 Eastern! Hashtag #Q4Jon.”

You can imagine the results. One question thus read, “Jon, in ten years do you see yourself following George Clooney’s or Tom Selleck’s career path?”

Jon Huntsman, to his credit, Tweeted: "Definitely Clooney's career path. But I think that Q was for Jon Hamm. Funny prank @TheDailyShow! #Q4Jon"

The funniest question that the presidential hopeful answered was one that involved variations of his first name. One user asked the former Utah Governor:

"@JonHuntsman Do you feel those who spell John w/ H are wasteful liberals using consonants wantonly & w/o discretion? #Q4Jon"

Jon Huntsman's response? A simple, hilarious "Yes!" Sadly, no one asked if he is the title character in Snow White and the Huntsman.

Anybody else think all U.S. presidential candidates should be constitutionally required to field questions on Twitter at least once a month from now on?
