Watch Jon Stewart Crush Dick Cheney In Epic Takedown Over Iran

Plenty of viewers will be sad to see Jon Stewart leave "The Daily Show" later this year. It's a safe bet that former Vice President Dick Cheney won't be one of them.

Last week, Cheney made headlines when he attacked President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran, saying "I can't think of a more terrible burden to leave the next president than what Obama is creating here."

On Thursday night's "Daily Show," Stewart fired back.

"Really? You can't think of an administration that left a more terrible burden?" Stewart said as a picture of Cheney and former President George W. Bush appeared next to him and grew as he spoke. "Think hard... no wait. If I can ask you, think harder. Maybe you need a visual aid. Can you think of an administration that left... ?"

Stewart was just getting warmed up. He used Cheney's own logic to show that there was a presidency that helped strengthen Iran more than any other -- and it was the one Cheney served in.

During the takedown, Stewart donned a classic deerstalker cap, eventually swapping it for a gumshoe's fedora, and used two pipes and a lollypop to make his points to a "Dick Cheney" represented by a balloon with a frowny face.
