Jon Stewart gleefully struck back Monday night at the former CNN host who was fired after calling him a bigot.
In his opening spot on "The Daily Show," Stewart told his Comedy Central audience that, after taping last Thursday's edition, he had heard Rick Sanchez interviewed on a radio program.
"I think Jon Stewart's a bigot," Sanchez was heard declaring in the taped replay.
"Omigod!" Stewart glowed from his anchor desk. "Rick Sanchez knows my name!"
