Jon Stewart suggests the presidential race is narrowing to Biden and Trump exchanging insults about each other’s mental capacity in ‘Soup vs Brain’ feud

In a scathing critique of the current state of the 2024 presidential race, Jon Stewart took aim at both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump for their advanced ages. The renowned comedian likened the election to a mud-slinging contest, with each candidate accusing the other of lacking cognitive abilities where there should be sound judgment.

During his segment on “The Daily Show,” Stewart humorously highlighted instances where Biden and Trump appeared to stumble due to their age. He referenced a video of Biden seemingly wandering off at the G7 summit, as well as Trump’s boast about acing a cognitive test while getting the doctor’s name wrong.

Stewart’s commentary on the candidates’ ages sparked controversy earlier in the year, with critics arguing that he unfairly equated Biden with Trump, a four-times indicted and now-convicted felon. Despite the backlash, Stewart doubled down on his concerns about the implications of having elderly candidates in such a high-stakes election.

As the showdown between Trump and Biden looms closer, with a scheduled debate on June 27 at CNN’s Atlanta studio, the spotlight on their cognitive abilities will only intensify. It remains to be seen how the candidates will navigate this crucial event, but one thing is certain – Jon Stewart isn’t afraid to speak his mind about the state of American politics.
