WATCH: Jon Stewart Still Can't Get Enough Trump Stupidity -- "Am I Dreaming"?
Jon Stewart made a worthy effort to discuss the crucial Trans-Pacific Partnership Wednesday night, but remained so distracted by The Donald's entry into the race, he kept losing his place. Stewart has made it clear on several occasions that Donald Trump's entrance into the GOP field was the comedic equivalent of throwing chum into a pool of sharks. The absurd bloviating, the cartoon rhetoric, the lack of impulse control: Trump's surprise announcement was enough to make Stewart reconsider retirement.
In an effort to parse the ostensibly complex trade deals in question – the TAA, TPP, and TFA – Stewart spliced random Trump quotes into his breakdown, leading to a pretty hilarious contrast between frivolous and serious, complex and simpleton. And who can blame him? The TPP, while terribly important, doesn't have a fake tan and a never-ending string of catch phrases.
