Jon Stewart Thanks Donald Trump for His Presidential Bid on The Daily Show

Donald Trump Daily Show

It was the question on every Daily Show fan’s mind when Donald Trump announced his bid for President of the United States on Tuesday: What will Jon Stewart say? (The man does, after all, lovingly refer to Trump as “F–kFace Von ClownStick”.)

And to say that Stewart didn’t let his fans down would be an understatement.

“Like many of you, I heard some interesting, let’s call it, ‘news’ today about a certain, let’s say, ‘gift from heaven’ entering the presidential race,” he began during Tuesday’s episode. “Because, apparently, Huckabee-Santorum wasn’t farfetched enough. I’m here to tell you, the world right now is [mimics exploding head]. Whites are black, Trump’s running for president. … Does gravity still work?”

“I’m just really happy right now,” Stewart continued, after showing a clip of Trump descending to the podium on an escalator. “What an entrance! … And what followed was over a half hour of the most beautifully ridiculous jibber jabber ever to pour forth from the mouth of a bats–t billionaire.”

In the end, though, Stewart had nothing but gratitude for the (former?) Celebrity Apprentice host, saying, “Thank you, Donald Trump, for making my last six weeks my best six weeks.”

  1. Whether Trump wins or Clinton wins, Saturday Night Live will need Darrell Hammond next season.

      I’m assuming we’ll see much more of Hammond next season as both Bill Clinton and Trump (assuming he stays in the race that long).

    I just dont understand how anyone in their right mind, Republican, Democrat, Independent… Could knowingly vote for him

    Hope Trump should give Jon Stewart a nice farewell gift before the funnyman exits The Daily Show on August 6th.

    Jon having fun with this loon’s presidential run is about the only bright side to that news :p. God, I’m going to miss Jon when he leaves…
    As for Jon’s mention of a Huckabee/Santorum ticket-that would be the stuff of my nightmares, right there.

    His arrogance reminds of Benito Mussolini, right down to the facial expressions.
