Jon Stewart celebrates Donald Trump post-presidential bid media tour by slamming candidate

Posted on

Donald Trump could have cost The Daily Show fans a few weeks worth of time with Jon Stewart. Thankfully for everyone, Trump wasn’t playing around with his presidential announcement… and Stewart was at rehearsal for his own show, so there’s no need to fear.

Stewart and his crew celebrated Trump’s official filing to run for the U.S. presidency on Tuesday. The Daily Show host rang in the good news by taking a look at Trump’s media appearances following his announcement. Unsurprisingly, Stewart has a few a lot of problems with what Trump said in his interviews.

Whether it’s the Commander-in-Trump’s plans for stopping ISIS or his hairsplitting description of why his campaign slogan is different from Ronald Regan’s, Stewart finds no shortage of material to pull from Trump’s tour. But no matter what Trump says, Stewart isn’t worried about it becoming more than fodder for his show.

“He’s got no chance,” Stewart said. “In fact, he’s great for the Republicans, because the more he talks, the more he appears on television, the more he makes the other Republicans’ crazy seem kind of reasonable by comparison.”

He feels that way, at least, until polling numbers come out from New Hampshire.
