Donald Trump released a video Wednesday that accuses Jon Stewart of making a "very, very racist rant" about Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Stewart commented on his Monday show about reports that, at that time, two women had accused Cain of inappropriate sexual advances. The "Daily Show" host zeroed in on Cain’s response to questions about whether he had paid anyone to resolve harassment claims, the story says. Cain had responded, "Outside of the Restaurant Association, absolutely not."
Stewart mocked this response, saying it was similar to responding to whether one had ever kidnapped a child and adding in a fake Italian accent, "Well, other than the Lindbergh boy, no."
Trump alleged that Stewart’s comment was made in an accent to make fun of Cain. “How come Jon Stewart gets away with a very, very racist rant about Herman Cain?” Trump says in his video.
“It’s not what he said, but the way he said it. The tone of his voice," Trump continues. "Other people get taken off the air, and when he says it, people smile and they sort of say, ‘Wow, I can’t believe he gets away with that.’"
Here’s the Trump video, along with Stewart’s original segment:
