WATCH: Jon Stewart Skewers Jeb Bush for Saying He'd Lead Just Like His Idiot Brother

Jon Stewart took aim at the easy pickings of Republican presidential candidates on Tuesday night. There's Mike Huckabee with his absurd defense of peddling a fake "diabetes reversal kit," Ben Carson's saying the Obama adminstration is like Nazi Germany, and that really nutso interview of Ted Cruz by the Bloomberg reporter who asked the Texas Senator to speak "en Espanol," and what his favorites Cuban food was. Ted Cruz actually looked relatively sympathetic in comparison.


And then there's presumed front-runner, Jeb Bush, who told Fox News that he considers big brother "W" a "trusted foreign policy advisor." Still worse, when asked if knowing what we now know would he still invade Iraq, Jeb Bush said yes. You heard right. He said yes, leaving his advisors to scramble the next day and say that he failed to either hear or understand the question. 

Hoo boy.

Stewart tried to put that blunder in perspective for viewers. Would Jeb Bush also take a ride on the Titanic knowing what we know now?

“Long-term, mentioning his brother’s name is like wearing an ‘I F*ck Dogs’ T-shirt during your campaign,” Stewart said. “You might be appealing to a small fringe of dead-enders, but most people don’t want another dog-fucker for president.”
