Comedian Jon Stewart has hit back after Fox News host Tucker Carlson mocked his height and called him “crazy”.
Mr Carlson targets the former daily show In his show on Thursday night, the host said he looked like a “mental patient.”
“He’s screaming and disoriented and too young. Really small, too small to this day. Was he always that small? What happened? Where has he been in the last seven years? Let us know if you know.” We want answers,” he added sarcastically.
“Friend. Tonite I’m sad. @TuckerCarlson considers me too short to this day… and yet somehow, miraculously, I live so tall I don’t know what [Hungarian Prime Minister] A** tastes like Victor Orban!” Mr. Stewart tweeted later on Thursday. “Is this goulash tuki? Looks like it’ll be goulash.”
Mr Carlson praised Mr Orban last year, saying he is the only “elected leader who publicly identifies as a Western-style conservative”.
Speaking at the CPAC in Texas on Thursday, Mr. Orban said, “We have seen what kind of future the globalist, ruling class has to offer. But we have a different future in mind.”
“Globalists can go to all hell, I’ve come to Texas,” he said.
The speech comes amid controversy for the Hungarian far-right leader after a speech in Romania last month in which he said “these countries are no longer nations – they are nothing more than a group of people”.
According to a translation from the Associated Press, “We are ready to mingle with each other, but we do not want to be mixed-race people.” “Migration has divided Europe in two – or I might say it has divided the West in two.”

He added that the speech “was worthy of a pure Nazi text”. [Propaganda Minister Joseph] Goebbels”. She later appeared in take care on his comments.
Mr Stewart has spent several days in Washington DC over the past week prompting lawmakers to pass the PACT Act, a health care bill for elderly people exposed to toxic burn pits.
On Monday, he was filmed yelling at far-right conspiracy theorist Jack Posobiec, whom Mr Stewart said was a “f***ing troll” and that he was not acting “in good faith”.
Mr Carlson shared the video on his show, saying Mr Stewart “looks like a guy who lives in the men’s room in your public library, eating imaginary insects out of the air”.
“What’s really the most interesting part [the video] Not a policy debate, but Jon Stewart himself. He is completely unrecognizable. He looks crazy,” said the Fox News host.
