Jon Stewart Says Anthony Weiner 'Never Should Have Run For Mayor' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart may have missed the Carlos Danger saga over the summer, but he had a chance to dig into his old friend Anthony Weiner on Thursday in a segment covering New York's impending mayoral election.

With Weiner deftly executing one bad PR move after another, there's no end to embarrassing footage of him out there. But, Stewart wondered, "What if everything Anthony Weiner's done makes sense if you look at it in a larger context?" After all, that argument in the kosher bakery happened because the guy insulted Weiner's wife. Who could really blame him?

Unfortunately, none of the other gaffes — or dick pics — really hold up under scrutiny. Ultimately, Stewart had to admit that Anthony Weiner's "just a guy with self-control issues who never should have run for mayor."

Ouch. Watch the clip, which includes Jessica Williams, Aasif Mandvi and Al Madrigal, above.
