Jon Stewart Calls Newt Gingrich a 'Square'

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Comedian Jon Stewart poked fun at Newt Gingrich Thursday night, calling the Republican presidential candidate a “square.”

“I say this with all due respect Newt, and I hate to break this to you but this whole Twitter, YouTube thing is not going to work for you because you’re not cool.  You’re uncool,” Stewart said on Thursday night’s The Daily Show. “Let me put this in lingo that you might understand.  You’re what might be known to your generation as a square.”

Stewart mocked Gingrich’s campaign rollout on Twitter.

“Gingrich announcing on Twitter and YouTube instead of on television or in a newspaper, it’s as though Newt has abandoned old media while it was sick or possibly dying to take up a newer, younger…media.”

But the ridicule didn’t end there.  Stewart went after his official announcement video as well.

“Who thought it was a good idea to do your state of the art campaign computer launch in a Sears photo studio booth with a Casio accompaniment?” Stewart said.  “That’s not music to launch a hip presidential campaign.”
