NEW YORK (AP) - New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio made his second - and likely final - appearance with Jon Stewart at the helm of The Daily Show.

Stewart is leaving the show in August. Comedian Trevor Noah takes over in September.

On Tuesday, de Blasio and Stewart traded barbs over income inequality and height inequality. The Democratic progressive governor is 6-feet-5 inches tall.

De Blasio was previously on the show last February.

Stewart spent much of that appearance teasing the mayor for eating pizza with a knife and fork instead of the traditional New York method of folding a slice with his hands.

De Blasio has made other cable talk show appearances but has yet to appear onscreen at another New York institution, Saturday Night Live.
