Jon Stewart is holding nothing back when it comes to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, and the rough-and-tumble race to the White House.

On Monday, the former Daily Show host spoke with David Axelrod at the University of Chicago Institute of Politics for his podcast, The Axe Files. He quickly started in on Trump, asking: "I'm not a constitutional scholar, so I can't necessarily say, but are you eligible to run if you are a man-baby, or a baby-man? He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands." That was Stewart being nice; he went on to call Trump an "unrepentant, narcissistic asshole," and made fun of his "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan. "When was America great?" Stewart asked. "What is this time that he speaks of? '81 to '82? Like, what are we talking about? And who took your country away from you?"
