Jon Stewart’s Sexual Bush-Merkel Joke Not So Outlandish Anymore…
On last night’s “Daily Show,” Jon Stewart joked that we were lucky Bush’s “open mike” didn’t pick him up “pointing out some Merkel camel toe,” a lewd sexual reference to German Chancellor Angela Merkel. However, in light of Bush’s just publicized unsolicited massage of Merkel, Stewart is looking prophetic all of a sudden.
