Schiff, a frequent guest on CNBC and Fox News who predicted the current financial crisis several years ago, made a visit to Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart to hawk his book, “Crash Proof: How to Profit From the Coming Economic Collapse” But the interview quickly veered into politics, with Schiff launching into a critique of both the Bush and Obama administration’s economic policies.

“Are you running for office?” Stewart finally asked.
