Jon Stewart Mocks Obama's Puerto Rican P.R. Trip (VIDEO)

On Wednesday night's "Daily Show," Jon Stewart took aim at President Obama's recent trip to Puerto Rico. While Obama was technically fulfilling a campaign promise, Stewart saw his trip to the P.R. as more of a P.R. stunt.

The President's trip is actually the first official visit made by a U.S. President since John F. Kennedy, but the historic occasion was marred in Stewart's eyes due to the fact that it was less than a five-hour stay.

"This isn't really a Presidential visit, but more of a layover on his way to St. Bart's," Stewart said.

Stewart also had fun with Obama's inability to hold an accented pronunciation of "Puerto" during his speech, but that wasn't even the funniest part. The whole speech felt forced, with Obama rattling off the names of every famous Puerto Rican he could think of and glancing at his notes three times to pronounce "Arroz con gandules."

All kidding aside, Stewart wondered why exactly the President would fly seven hours to spend four hours in the P.R.? Could it be that the 11 states with the hightest Puerto Rican population contain the electoral votes Obama needs to be re-elected?
