Tuesday night, former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart returned to standup, and a large portion of his act was devoted to mocking and ridiculing Donald Trump, who, as we all know, is incredibly easy to make fun of.
Stewart started by saying:
“It’s like an Internet comment troll ran for president.”
Then Stewart ran with that premise, and continued:
“When I was doing the program, we liked to make jokes about him because he’s hilarious and easily mockable. We would mock him with things such as, ‘He looks like a bewigged boiled ham,’ or something like that. So he would tweet in the middle of the night, ‘Jon Stewart’s real name is Leibowitz. He’s a Jew. Why does he run away from his heritage?’ You know, because that’s what I think most presidents would do. I remember Lincoln used to drunk tweet: ‘Hey, emancipate this, you fuck!’”
Yes, Trump was known to tweet out things such as this about Stewart:
All the haters and losers must admit that, unlike others, I never attacked dopey Jon Stewart for his phony last name. Would never do that!

Stewart said he still has trouble believing that anyone is taking the Donald seriously as a Presidential candidate:
“Are we really doing this Donald Trump thing? We’re really doing that as a country? He’s fucked. I like to put my name in giant letters on everything I own as much as the next guy, but the only other people that do that are like 8-year-olds going to camp.”
Then Stewart broke into his Trump impression:
“Where did I put that building? Oh there it is, Trump. Boom. Where’s my fucking helicopter? Boom, Trump. Where’s my wife? Boom, Trump, nice.”
The always brilliant Stewart also said he doesn’t care for those who say they admire Trump for speaking his mind:
“People are like, ‘I like Trump; he says what he thinks.’ What he thinks is stupid. That’s like if your friend is like, ‘I would like to fuck your mom.’ Why would you say that? … I don’t give a shit if you’re politically correct, just be correct, correct.”
It’s great to have you back, Jon. We’ve missed you.
