One might think that the Daily Show host Jon Stewart enjoys discussing politics. And while it's true he very well may, his opinion of the ones he's reporting on is rather dour (but true). Over the weekend, the comedian sat down with CBS' Sunday Morning correspondent Mo Rocca – who was a once-upon-a-time correspondent at the Daily Show – and told him that he believes politicians are "salespeople" –– citing a number of interviews he's conducted in the past. In fact, when it comes to those interviews, he "despises" doing them.
The time of Stewart's interview came at the perfect time, considering the upcoming Nov. 14 release of his directorial debut film Rosewater along with culmination of the 2014 Midterm Elections. The former, however, garnered much of the interview time... after he and Rocca were done joking around about the hilarity of the CBS Sunday Morning logo, that is.
"Is there really a sun decal on your notes? Is that what that is?" joked Stewart. "The logo is the sun. I knew that, because I watch."
The two discussed a number of topics over the course of the 10 minute interview – from Stewart's busy schedule to Rosewater and even his thoughts on a number of interviews he's had over the years. Among them all, one of the most interesting items was a fact surrounding the 51-year-old's new film. Specifically, an interrogation scene in which Maziar Bahari – portrayed by Gael Garcia Bernal – was being questioned about a spot he did on a US comedy show. Yep, you guessed it –– The Daily Show.

So, do we all agree with Stewarts comments regarding politicians? "Imagine having to interview salespeople. They're salespeople!" he said. "They live in a world of denial and conjuring."
Despite his words, it's pretty safe to say that those salespeople will continue to head on over to the Comedy Central vehicle... when they need something, of course.
Rosewater opens this coming Nov. 14. Check out the trailer below:© 2019 Mstars News, All rights reserved. Do not reproduce without permission.
