Jon Stewart On Romney Serenading Elderly: Everyone Hit Their Life Alert Buttons At Once
On Tuesday’s Daily Show, Jon Stewart took notice of Mitt Romney‘s enthusiastic outreach to elderly voters while campaigning at The Villages, the largest gated retirement community in the country.
“Mitt Romney is all over them like white on Mitt Romney,” Stewart cracked.
The late-night comedian pondered how the Republican frontrunner would get their attention.
Stewart then played footage of Romney serenading the elderly residents in patriotic song.
“My mom and dad put us in their car and took us around to the national parks,” Romney told the retirees. “They wanted us to see the beauty of the land. Came here and saw Cypress Gardens and the oceans. Went west and saw the canyon and canyons actually, rivers and mountains and fell in love with the land in America. There’s a song that captures that for me. O, beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain, for purple mountains majesty across the fruited plain. Can you sing that song? I love that song. You know that song?”
“It was then — that everyone in the crowd at The Villages pressed their life alert button at the same time,” Stewart joked. “And faked a stroke, ‘he’s singing and I can’t get out!'”
