Completing the home-and-home with fellow cable news host Bill O’Reilly, “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart summed up why the Democrats lost in the midterm elections, and offered a surprising opinion about President Barack Obama with two years left in the White House.

Stewart was appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor” in support of his new movie “Rosewater,” his directorial debut.

“[Democrats] curled up in a little ball and tried to make sure nobody hit them too hard. I have no idea what they even ran on,” said the Comedy Central host.

“Here’s what they ran on: ‘We don’t like Obama either. I don’t know who voted for him, we’ve got nothing to do with them.’ They’re frightened,” added Stewart.

Stewart also opined that Obama is not the leader of the Democratic Party anymore following the losses incurred by the party last week.

“I don’t believe he is the leader of the Democratic Party,” said Stewart, adding that Obama “has a bit of disdain for the Democrats. I believe they have a disdain for him.”
