Jon Stewart explains Why he doesn’t care if Trump goes to jail

Jon Stewart has explained Why he said he doesn’t care whether or not Donald Trump goes to jail over the Stormy Daniels hush money saga.

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria interviewed the former Daily Show host Sunday and started by asking Stewart what he thinks about the discourse surrounding Trump’s possible indictment. Zakaria noted “there are other people who say this is going to turn him into a martyr.”

“What’s happened to our country? It’s as though you can’t even commit financial fraud anymore. You can’t inflate the value of your properties when you need a loan and then deflate it with taxes. I mean, the next thing you know, they’re going to send you to jail instead of your lawyer, and your accountant, and your campaign manager, and everyone else around you. The idea that someone may face accountability who’s that rich and powerful is outrageous, and this country shouldn’t stand for it.”

Stewart got serious, arguing that even if the indictment fuels support for Trump, “we either have the rule of law, or we have no rule of law.”
