Jon Stewart has mocked Pat Robertson's call for GOP candidates to tone down their rhetoric.

During his Tuesday opening monologue of Comedy Central's The Daily Show, Stewart played various clips from GOP presidential candidates, including Mitt Romney, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, Herman Cain, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry, then whispered, “They're all saying crazy things.”

Coming to his aide was Pat Robertson, who said on his 700 Club: “Those people in the Republican primary have got to lay off this stuff.”

A bewildered Stewart rhetorically asked, “Is that Pat 'gay people cause hurricanes' Robertson expressing concern for how extreme the Republican Party has gotten?”

“Pat 'Liberals are akin to Nazis' Robertson believes that the Republicans are staking out a position that may be unappealingly extreme?”

Stewart explained that Robertson wasn't disagreeing with the GOP candidates, he simply wanted them to hush up.

“Keep that our little secret,” Stewart argued for Robertson. “If you tell people what we honestly believe, an electoral majority of those people will freak the fuck out.”
