Jon Stewart suggests Bill O'Reilly could be next Pope - VIDEO

Jon Stewart and Bill O'Reilly

Jon Stewart has been thinking about the papal conclave and he's had an inspired idea. If any conservative male Catholic can be pope, why not elect Bill O'Reilly?

Firstly, O'Reilly's already certain he's right about everything, Stewart reasoned, so wouldn't that push him ahead of the pack?

Secondly, if the Catholic church really wants to reach out to women, how about electing a female pope - or cardinal - or bishop - or, oh well forget that. Back to O'Reilly.

According to the Huffington Post, with his preferred candidate named, Stewart then concentrated on how the pope actually gets elected, bringing in Senior Vatican Correspondents Aasif Mandvi and Samantha Bee to explain the process.
