Jon Stewart pranks Jon Huntsman

Huntsman, who also joked in response to another question that only “wasteful liberals” use an H in spelling his name, took the humor in stride.

 “Funny prank @TheDailyShow!” he tweeted.

He also answered one question likely directed at rival “Jon,” the actor best known for AMC’s “Mad Men.”

Asked whether he sees himself following actors George Clooney's or Tom Selleck's career path, Huntsman replied, “I definitely want Clooney's career path. But I think that Q was for Jon Hamm.”
