Weeks away from the start of the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, comedian Jon Stewart is slapping back at a recent interview in which President Vladimir Putin reduces homosexuality to pedophilia.

After saying Russia isn't anti-gay and homosexuals aren't being rounded up, Putin tells gay people they can "feel relaxed and relieved, but please leave the children in peace."

Leave the children in peace.

That line sends Stewart on a trip down memory lane that's worth watching.

You'll be asking the same question Stewart poses to Putin afterward: "Is that the creepy behavior you're talking about?"
