Jon Stewart Can't Resist Making Fun of the Schwarzenegger Scandal (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted May 18th 2011 5:07AM
'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'If you believe Jon Stewart for a second when he says he's unhappy about the Arnold Schwarzenegger scandal breaking, you are out of your mind. Sure, those were his words on 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central), but he also admitted it's a comedic goldmine.

He said he was glad the news of recent weeks was behind us so the show could get back to its core mission: "Discussing the important issues of the day." But then he cut immediately to a news clip breaking the story that Schwarzenegger admitted to fathering a child with a member of his household staff more than a decade ago.

"Damn you, nearly irresistable comic possibilities," he lamented. "Funny accent. Built-in movie poster fun."

As is tradition on 'The Daily Show,' a parade of fake movie posters followed, parodying Schwarzenegger's movie past. "Some of his movie titles we wouldn't even have to change," Stewart said putting up 'True Lies.'

Stewart may pretend he's not happy about this turn of events, but 'The Daily Show' hasn't had this much great material to riff off of in a long time. And we don't think they'll let it go anytime soon either ... unless another bombshell is waiting in the wings.

I still can't believe Maria was ''that dumb''!! She had to have known, or else did not care. Most time children
are the reason women 'stay'.......but the kids aren't blind either......know more than people realize!
Maria is a beautiful woman, and should have left many years ago.....

I don't know why Maria was surprised? She comes from a family of cheats and I'm glad she moved out of the mansion. She didn't deserve this muscleman (brain is definitely his junk).

Poor choice of topics, Jon. You're like a hand grenade that goes after Ahhhnold, but also gets everyone around him. Which makes you look like a de'classe', self-centered vulture, picking on the remains and heartache of a marriage, and family, lost. Arnold was tragically wrong, and it is news, but not funny. Be cautious that you don't make too big an a$$ of yourself, in your fervor to make an a$$ out of others. One misstep and your fickle, freakoid following will "overnight" themselves to Howard Stern.

This bozo gets paid to write this nonsense ? If he does then he is staeling money. What thoughtful insight into "The Daily Show". Thanks for explaining "The Daily Show" to us all. Wow! Is this guy eligible for a Pulitzer ?

I watched the O'reilly-Jon Stewert interview and while I'm an O'reilly fan I think it was pretty much a tie with both of then making good points and not insulting each other.
