Jon Stewart Goes On Rampage About Palin and Trump's Pizza Flubs

Jon Stewart went off like a bottle rocket on Donald Trump and Sarah Palin's decision to dine together at a Times Square pizza joint the other day.

Nop, he didn't touch on politics, though I'm sure he wanted to. What really got him going was...the pizza!

You see, New York City prides itself on having some of the best pizza in the world (and Stewart gives a shout out to some of the best in the video - so take notes if you're planning a trip to the Big Apple). Donald Trump grew up in New York so he should at least know a few (at least a few expensive ones). And generally you want to impress an out-of-town guest (when my friends come in I like to take them to places better than, say, Taco Bell for a meal).

But The Donald took Sarah Palin for (gosh-darn) pizza at Famous Famiglia, a 30-location chain owned by Albanians. This restaurant (if you can call it that) generally serves pizza to tourists or drunks.

Watch Stewart cry with anger and shame as The Donald eats pizza with a fork (??!!!!???) and "stacks" his slice, then schools Trump on the proper way to eat a slice.
