CNN anchor calls Obama Special Olympics gaffe "stupidest thing he's ever said"

CNN's "The Situation Room" anchor Jack Cafferty was on "The Daily Show" March 30 to talk about his new book, Now or Never: Getting Down to the Business of Saving Our American Dream, and in speaking about his admiration for President Obama, he also slipped in criticism of the President's Special Olympics gaffe on the Tonight Show.

Here's what was said:

Jack Cafferty: I like Obama. I think he's a bright guy. He's the former editor of the Harvard Law Review, former Senator, President of the United States, and he goes on The Tonight show and says arguably the stupidest thing he's ever said in his entire adult life.

Jon Stewart: The Special Olympics thing?

Cafferty: Yea

Stewart: It was crazy.

Cafferty: What makes people do that on talk shows?
