Last night The Daily Show's Jon Stewart turned his attention to today's mayoral election and Republican candidate Joe Lhota's anticipated loss to Democrat Bill de Blasio. De Blasio enjoyed a 45% lead going into today, and although Lhota tried to portray himself as the "underdog," Stewart thought he looked more like "the kind of dog that sings Sarah McLachlan songs" in the depressing SPCA commercials. It gets even more withering from there:
In the interest of fairness, de Blasio's freakish height (at least compared to the dainty Stewart) was held up for ridicule during a funny bit with John Oliver. We won't spoil the gag, just watch it for yourself and realize how much Lhota looks like Grumpy Cat.
