Jon Stewart's Not Sure Donald Trump Is a True New Yorker After Pizza Debacle (VIDEO)

'The Daily Show with Jon Stewart'Jon Stewart may not be Italian, but he brought out the Italian New Yorker inside him to defend his beloved city on 'The Daily Show' (Weeknights, 11PM ET on Comedy Central). The offense was virtually everything to do with Donald Trump's lunch with Sarah Palin.

The former Governor of Alaska brought her bus tour to New York City, where Trump decided to treat her and her family to an authentic New York pizza lunch. Only, according to Stewart, he blew it in every sense of the word, from the pizza joint he chose, to the way he ate his pizza.

"It's New York City," he joked. "I hate to use this term this close to Ground Zero, but we're a bit of a Pizza Mecca."

Stewart lost it completely when he saw Trump not only stacking his pizza on his plate but eating it with a fork. See, there are rules on how you eat an authentic New York pizza. Rules so sacred that Stewart brought out a big slice just so he could show us.

"Based on how you eat pizza, Donald," Stewart decided. "I want to see your longform birth certificate. I don't think you were really born in New York."

What the heck kind of pizza folds? That thing looked like a pita with red sauce spread on it.
