With five weeks left on his farewell tour, Jon Stewart hosted former President Bill Clinton on The Daily Show Wednesday evening to discuss the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership), but not before confronting Clinton with his favorite subject: Donald Trump.
Seemingly to the surprise of even Clinton himself, the former President mentioned that the newly announced presidential candidate has been unusually amicable over the years with the Clinton family.
“It was vintage Trump,” Clinton said of the GOP candidate’s campaign announcement. “He has been, believe it or not, uncommonly nice to Hillary and me. He thought Hillary was a good senator for New York after 9/11, and he was actually one of the many Republicans that supported our foundation before they got the memo.”
“Don’t you think he’s less a Republican, and more of a Trump-ocrat?” cracked Stewart. “I don’t think he cares as long as he can put his name on the White House. I don’t think he cares. Give it a nice gold paving, you know, class it up.”
Clinton would go on to ridicule Trump for his comments about Mexico and Mexican-Americans, before eventually discussing NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement) — a major part of the former President’s economic legacy.
