Jon Stewart: Trump Is An Internet Troll Running For President


Comedian Jon Stewart returned to standup on Tuesday night, and wasted no time going after one of his favorite targets: Donald Trump.

“When I was doing the program, we liked to construct gags about him because hes hilarious and easily mockable, ” Stewart said, according to Entertainment Weekly. “We would taunt 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 Stewarts real name is Leibowitz. Hes a Jew. Why does he run away from his heritage? ‘ You know, because thats what I think most chairwomen would do. I recollect Lincoln used to drunk tweet: Hey, emancipate this, you fuck! ‘”

Stewart, who has had a long-running conflict with Trump, refers to tweets such as these:

Stewart expressed some skepticism that Trump is of great competitor for the presidency.

Are we really doing this Donald Trump thing? We’re actually doing that as a country? ” Stewart said, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “He’s fucked. I like to set 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, he broke out his famous Trump impression.

“Where did I set that build? Oh there it is, Trump. Boom. Where’s my fucking helicopter? Boom, Trump, ” Stewart said. “Where’s my wife? Boom, Trump, nice.”

If Trump is aware of Stewart’s gags, he has yet to fire back on Twitter.

Stewart had words for people who say they like Trump because of his unfiltered views.

“People are like, ‘I like Trump; he says what he thinks, ‘” Stewart said, per The Hollywood Reporter. “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, merely be correct, correct.”

While it seems Trump got hit with the sharpest of comedic barb, Stewart also told gags about Ben Carson, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden and even himself before wrapping it up with some exasperation over politics.

“Im done with this shit, ” he said, according to EW. “Done, done, done.”
