Jon Stewart Mocks Herman Cain's Sexual Harassment Scandal (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Given all the parodies of pornography that involve a pizza delivery guy, it's only natural that Jon Stewart would get some material out of presidential hopeful and former pizza empresario Herman Cain's sexual harassment allegations in the news this week.

After demonstrating just how sexually suggestive the pizza world can really be, Stewart got to what he considers Cain's biggest challenge in the campaign so far: explaining away allegations that he acted inappropriately with female employees during his tenure as the head of the National Restaurant Association in the 1990s. Stewart began to criticize the news media's handling of the story, but then decided to get right to Cain's somewhat confusing apology on Fox News.

What stuck out the most to Stewart, aside from Cain's repetitive denial, was his response to a question about whether or not he'd made monetary settlements due to harassment allegations before. He said, "Other than the restaurant association, no," as if the incident in question didn't count.

"You can't just go, 'Well, other than that, no!'" Stewart said in disbelief.

Watch the full clip above (or click here to watch on The Daily Show website) to see Stewart show how even if Cain is telling the truth about the allegations, everything he says on the campaign trail is now tainted. And, by the looks of things, Rick Perry's not doing much to gain on him in the meantime.
