WATCH: Jon Stewart Is Back - and Still Can't Get Enough of Trump's Stupidity

After two weeks hiatus, Jon Stewart returned to The Daily Show Monday night in full form, delivering a brilliant evisceration of the GOP candidates' Trump hypocrisy. After weeks of accusing Mexicans of being rapists, insulting women, and after years of race-baiting Obama with birther dog-whistling, Trump somehow managed, finally, to cross the line with the Republican establishment after questioning Jon McCain's "heroic" bona fides

“The only reason you liked this guy in the first place", ” Stewart said, "is because of the terrible things he was willing to say about Obama. But Trump has no control over the projectile vomit of dickishness that comes out of his mouth every time he opens it. It was inevitable some of his word puke was gonna get on you.” 

The Daily Show host would go on, pointing out Trump's five Vietnam-era deferments and playing a clip of the Donald claiming one of his deferment was due to a mysterious bone spur. "I get that," Stewart said. "As a man who suffers from medical conditions which aren't real."

And right on cue, the GOP candidates let loose their outrage, falling over each other to condemn Trump after months of silence on the far more outrageous things he said. The Donald's parody candidacy, once again, proves to be the least likely vehicle for exposing the utter corruption of the modern Republican party.
