Jon Stewart calls Trump a 'man baby,' questions his eligibility

During an interview with David Axelrod, Jon Stewart said Donald Trump "has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands."

Jon Stewart has a question about Donald Trump's qualifications to be president.

In an interview with longtime Democratic strategist David Axelrod, the former "Daily Show" host asked, "Are you be eligible to run if you are a man baby?"

"I don't know, and again I'm not here to be politically incorrect, if they're referred to as man baby Americans, but he is a man baby. He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands," Stewart added during a live taping of the podcast series "The Axe Files."

Stewart's comment refers to a long-running joke that Trump has small hands. Most recently, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio used the Trump joke to suggest the size of the real estate mogul's manhood. Trump responded during a debate in March that “he referred to my hands, if they are small, something else must be small. I guarantee you there is no problem. I guarantee,” he said. 

Trump has also previously jabbed Stewart on Twitter. "We made fun of him, and I think we referred to him as a boiled ham in a wig or something, who knows, and so he tweeted at me. Because as you know, great leaders tweet late at night," Stewart said. 

Specifically, Trump took aim at Stewart on Twitter in 2013 for not acknowledging his full name. “I promise you that I’m much smarter than Jonathan Leibowitz -- I mean Jon Stewart @TheDailyShow. Who, by the way, is totally overrated,” Trump tweeted.

Stewart also commented about theDemocratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton, saying she was "a very bright woman without the courage of her convictions."

Nonetheless, Stewart said he still prefers Clinton over Trump and frankly, he would "vote for Mr. T over Donald Trump."
