Jon Stewart Begs Donald Trump to Get Back in the Race, for the Sake of Comedy

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart mentioned that Mitt Romney had finally clenched the GOP nomination ("28 years, $2 trillion, and three unsolved murders later"). Five more months of Romney v.

So Stewart got a gift from the Comedy Gods: Donald Trump's return to the news cycle, with more birtherism nonsense, no less. "I love you so much," Stewart tells Trump. "Donald, you have to get back into the race for president. I'm not just saying this because it would help me -- though oh my god."
