Jon Stewart: 'Trump Is Supposed to Buy Candidates, Not Become One' (VIDEO)

Jon Stewart, still feeding his Donald Trump addiction, took notice of a strange plot twist in the Trump soap opera: billionaire funders were leaving Camp Donald in favor of the "safer" candidates like Bush and Rubio.

The irony for Stewart was too great to go unnoticed: After four years of the GOP trying to rebrand itself as anything but the party of rich, racist white men, along comes the king of rich, racist white men, Donald Trump.

"The living embodiment of everything the Republicans were trying to exorcise from their party, just escalated down on their parade", the Daily Show host smugly said before playing a series of clips of Trump being a wealthy, racist buffoon. 

"This Trump guy", Stewart said impersonating an outraged establishment Republican, "is a rich, crazy, egotistical monster. People like him are supposed to buy the candidates -- not be them!" 

The latest polls show Trump has a seven point lead nationally over his closest competitor, Jeb Bush.
