"If anyone knows why the Jews left it, it's 'Mother Time.' Seriously, Helen, what the f--k? You were like 20 when it happened."
The whole ordeal left Stewart feeling down, flabbergasted that an adorable elderly woman could have such a "gap between cuteness of face and content of rhetoric." Not to worry. It's nothing South Carolina can't fix, as Stewart cheered himself up by ripping into his favorite state.
