Jon Stewart: 'If You're In A Net, Something Has Gone Terribly... Wrong'

Mitt Romney may want to see if there's anything his new Secret Service team can do to protect him from Jon Stewart's comedic barbs.

On The Daily Show Wednesday, after playing the infamous CNN clip in which Romney spoke of not being concerned about the very poor because they have a safety net, or the very rich, Stewart reacted thusly:

"Right. But it's still a $%@! net. And here's the thing about being in a net. Being in a net is bad whether you're a butterfly or a fish or a trapeze artist or a poor person. If you're in a net, something has gone terribly, terribly wrong."
