WATCH: Jon Stewart Matches Up Dick Cheney And John McCain In A Hilarious 'Old Man Fight'

Jon Stewart matched up Vice President Dick Cheney and Sen. John McCain in a “classic old man fight” on a segment of The Daily Show Tuesday, a few days after the two traded shots on vice presidential picks and torture.

In an interview with ABC over the weekend, Cheney said McCain’s pick of Sarah Palin as his running mate in 2008 was a “mistake.”

“I don’t think she passed that test … of being ready to take over,” Cheney said.

Stewart responded, “Did you just call out John McCain? You just woke up a cranky old man.”

McCain threw out the “torture” punch in an interview responding to Cheney, saying that he and the former vice president “disagreed on whether we should torture people.”

“McCain not only played the torture card,” Stewart said. “He licked the back of that card and stuck it on Cheney’s forehead so you could see him playing it.”
