“The Daily Show” host Jon Stewart on Tuesday appeared on Larry Wilmore’s “The Nightly Show, ” and said he went to Washington to “hang out, eat nachos, ” with President Obama.

The next day, Stewart he opened the show with his reportedly “secret” White House meetings with President Obama.

“It was openly listed, and I went through the normal White House entrance like everybody else, and I told my mom. Something is not a secret just because you don’t know about it, “Stewart said of the meetings.

Stewart continued, “The president asked me to come to Washington, and I did because if the president tells you and you don’t, then who the f*** knows what would happen. And by the way, to all future presidents, if you ask me to come to Washington, I will do that because I have no idea how to react to that other than ‘what time?’ ”

He added he’s been “summoned” to the offices of many powerful people, including Fox News boss Roger Ailes.
“I was summoned by Roger Ailes to his office, just like my meeting with the president, ” Stewart said. “Except where the president had his people reach out to me by phone, for this meeting a raven woke me up at midnight.”

Stewart then showed a video clip “The Seventh Seal, ” from the 1957, which included the manifestation of death saying, “I am Roger Ailes.”

Stewart said “In my entire tenure here of being yelled at by some very influential and powerful individuals … only with one of those people has a phone call ever ended with quote ‘this conversation never happened. And it wasn’t the f***ing president.”
