Over pizza and Big Gulps, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio chatted with Jon Stewart on “The Daily Show” last night. In addition to discussing the Che Guevara posters hanging in Mayor de Blasio’s office and brainstorming how to bring down the city’s affluent Upper East Side, Stewart brought up the hot-button issue now known as “Forkgate.”

“Bloomberg, as you know, used to have his food chewed and put back into his mouth, like a baby bird — but this is unacceptable,” Stewart said of the Mayor caught on camera using utensils to eat pizza. Stewart then whipped out a sausage-and-mushroom pie and encouraged him to forklessly eat a slice.
