Stewart Mocks Rand Paul’s Long, Slow Buildup to 2016 Announcement

Jon Stewart ribbed Rand Paul a bit over his presidential announcement today. Specifically, how long it took him to actually announce it.

Stewart did credit Paul for being a “non-doctrinaire Republican” and indirectly acknowledged past positive remarks he’s made about the Republican senator. But he got bored quickly with how long it took Paul to announce this morning, with speaker after speaker after speaker after… you get the point.

As for Paul’s announcement itself, Stewart didn’t have much to say, aside from picking out one particularly enthusiastic Paul supporter from the crowd looking a little Hulk-ish.
