Jon Stewart on Obama’s Fallon Slow Jam: ‘You Don’t Have to Do This S— Anymore’

"Mr. President, you're the president."

Jon Stewart wasn't completely impressed by President Obama's visit to "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon."

The president's "Slow Jam the News" segment Tuesday reminded Stewart — and many others — of Bill Clinton's sax-accompanied "Arsenio Hall Show" appearance in 1992. But the difference is that Clinton was a candidate trying to connect with voters in a fresh way, and Obama is a sitting commander-in-chief.

"Mr. President, you're the president," Stewart said on "The Daily Show" Wednesday. "You don't have to do this shit anymore."

It may have been a tiny bit of sour grapes that Fallon landed Obama as a guest: Stewart also noted that, critique aside, he'd love to have Obama back on "The Daily Show."
