Jon Stewart makes fun of East Haven mayor

Remember that time the mayor of East Haven said he would support Latinos by eating tacos? Jon Stewart remembers, too.

On last night’s episode of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart discussed how Rick Santorum said Mitt Romney was “the worst Republican in the country to put up against Barack Obama.” Stewart one-upped Santorum, showing the now-infamous clip of East Haven Mayor Joseph Maturo telling a reporter “I might have tacos when I go home” when asked about how he could support the Latino community.

According to Stewart, Romney is at least a step up from “taco mayor.” Watch the clip here — Stewart makes the Maturo joke at the 3:40 mark.
