The Irish MEP was featured on episode 'Searching for Allies,' which was released late last week.
Irish MEPs Mick Wallace, Clare Daly and Sean Kelly recently appeared on The Problem with Jon Stewart, an Apple TV original hosted by the show's namesake.
The show sees Stewart– famed for his years hosting satirical news programme The Daily Show– unpack America's most potent issues and hunt for solutions.
The Irish politicians are featured on the episode 'Searching for Allies' which explores the possibility of a "third world war."
The trio feature amongst a myriad of global politicians, including the likes of US Secretary of State Antony Blinkin, Germany's minister for foreign affairs Annalena Baerbock and President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola.
"America was built on genocide... slavery," says Wallace to Stewart in the trailer, to which Stewart rebuffs: "We don't teach that anymore."
The two were spotted together earlier this month at the European Parliament in Brussels, alongside Clare Daly.
Wallace and Daly have made headlines in recent months, owing to their stances on the Russia-Ukraine War. The two believe that the EU should not provide military support to the invaded nation, and were among just 13 who opposed a European Parliament motion to condemn Russia following the invasion.
“Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael have been promoting this war, and are loving this war," said Wallace in late 2022. "They’re supporting a US-NATO proxy war.”
The MEP's positions on Ukraine have caused much political pushback in recent months, with Fine Gael TD Neale Richmond telling the Independent.ie the two were “disgracing themselves."
