‘The Daily Show’ on the Obama-Romney lunch (VIDEO)

President Obama and former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney had lunch at the White House on Thursday, marking their first face-to-face meeting since the election. 

Why did the lunch have to take place at the White House? wondered Comedy Central's Jon Stewart on his Thursday night program. 

"Obama couldn't have met the guy at a restaurant? Had to make him come to the White House," Stewart said. "That's some cold brew. 'Hey, Romney, what's up man? Hey, isn't it funny? You almost lived here.'"

The Post's Philip Bump says ...
Since he proclaimed that he'd win New Hampshire last summer, Bernie Sanders has seen a swing of about 50 points in his direction. Impressive. But not as impressive as the guy on the other side of the political aisle. Donald Trump has led the Republican field in New Hampshire for almost 200 days, and has held a lead in 51 straight live-caller polls -- every poll stretching back to last July.
