Jon Stewart on Mitt and Newt's 'Pander Express'

By |

In advance of Florida's primary Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich tried to win over the state's Hispanic voters with his so-called "pigeon Spanish." But he was doing it all wrong, said Jon Stewart on last night's Daily Show. "To really crack the Sunshine State," he told viewers, "you gotta go for the oldsters, and Mitt Romney is on them like white on… Mitt Romney." The former Massachusetts governor made a campaign stop at The Villages, a retirement community that, according to Stewart, even Floridians call "that place with all the old people." He sang "America the Beautiful" to try to woo the elderly voters, but "it was then that everyone in the crowd pressed their Life Alert buttons and fake a stroke." Watch Stewart derail Mitt's "pander express" below.
