Comedian Jon Stewart, who is best known as a former host of The Daily Show, is being touted as the next presidential candidate for 2024 by a magazine and that, of course, did not go down well with the majority of social media users.
 
Titled “If Tucker Runs in 2024, Here’s Who the Democrats Need,” the op-ed piece by Politico got on the wrong side of the Internet after they pitched the idea of Jon Stewart running for the post of president in 2024. The tagline of the article read, “Jon Stewart is a better fit than most politicians for what modern politics has become.” Speaking of the 2024 elections, former POTUS Donald Trump, Howard Stern, and rap heavyweight Kanye West had earlier dropped hints about running for the elite post.

Is Jon Stewart running for President in 2024?

The opinion piece published by Politico tried to convince why Jon Stewart should run for the post of president in 2024. “To get the “seriousness” question out of the way right off the top: Stewart’s definition of being an entertainer has him wrestling with the kind of big, serious topics that actual politicians specialize in avoiding. He spends his time recording an AppleTV show and podcast interview show on policy issues such as abortion, climate change, gun control, misinformation, modern monetary theory, and other wonky-current topics, with the occasional Judd Apatow and Mark Cuban appearance thrown in for gloss.”
 
The op-ed further stated, “So he’s clearly engaged enough for the job. But the bigger reason is that he’s a better fit than most politicians for what modern politics has become.” However, shooting down the idea, Jon took to Twitter and summed up his feelings saying, “Ummm…No thank you.”  The Jon Stewart theory was initially sparked by rumors that Fox News host Tucker Carlson might run. He had then squashed the rumors saying he had no interest in running for president.

 The next one tweeted, “I'd max out donations and volunteer 8hrs/7days/however many weeks for that campaign! Sanity and integrity is EXACTLY what's missing in the current political environment.” Whereas, one added, “Can we please stop doing the thing where we’re like “oh, a politically savvy celebrity, THEY SHOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT.” I like Jon Stewart, but he’s never held elected office & that *should* matter when we’re deciding who gets to lead the country.” And, another concluded, “Imagine how funny the press briefings would be with Jon Stewart as president.”
