Stewart to Obama: ‘If you’re gonna declare martial law and put people in FEMA camps, do it quick’

This Tuesday on The Daily Show, President Obama made what will be his last appearance before he leaves office, and host Jon Stewart devoted the entirety of the show to him.

“You don’t have that much time to take away Americans’ guns, declare martial law, and put hardworking Americans in FEMA camps,” Stewart started out. “If you’re going to do that, you’d better get started.”

After the two discussed world affairs and how the media has treated his presidency, Obama brought up the subject of money in politics, saying that “there is a common purpose at the neighborhood level” in the U.S. which is rendered powerless by the polarization and lobbying.

“The only way to prevent that is by people getting involved,” Obama said. “It doesn’t take that much.”

“After seven years, is that the advice that you then bequeath to future President Trump?” Stewart sarcastically asked.

“I am sure the Republicans are enjoying Mr. Trump’s current dominance in their primary,” Obama quipped.

“Anything that makes them look less crazy,” Stewart quipped back.
