Jon Stewart is crying foul on Hillary Clinton. Kind of. 

The former Secretary of State held a press conference yesterday, in which she addressed the (slightly overblown) "scandal" concerning her email usage while employed at the State Department. Clinton offered up her reasoning for keeping only a private email account, but Jon Stewart just isn't buying it. And, he wants his audience to know he thinks the excuse is l-a-m-e.

As a refresher, the politician told reporters, "When I got to work as Secretary of State I opted for convenience to use my personal email account which was allowed by the State Department because I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two."

And, sure, that's totally a valid point—if you're a regular person with no assistants, and not a Secretary of State with a team of people. So, never one to let a potential joke go to waste, Stewart took her to task on last night's show. 

"I mean, that's a super hassle to have two phones," the host said sarcastically. "Doesn't she have, like, a sandwich team? She's surrounded by a team of people at all times—she couldn't be like, 'Hey man, could you hold this other phone for me?'"

"Guess not," he added, with a knowing smirk.

He's got ya there, Hil.
