Jon Stewart Explodes at the Republicans Defending Donald Trump’s Racist Comments (Video)

donald-trump-jon-stewart-2As we head into what might be the most entertaining presidential race of any of our lifetimes, I still can’t believe Jon Stewart is leaving. The 2016 election is made for someone like Stewart. While I have high hopes for Trevor Noah, I just can’t see anyone replacing everything that Jon Stewart brings as a political commentator and comedian.


Take last night for example. Stewart pretty much lost it when it came to Republicans defending Donald Trump’s extremely offensive and racist remarks about Mexican immigrants.

After a fairly hilarious mocking of Trump that involved comparing him to a monkey that throws poop at the zoo, Stewart set his sights on those who’ve defended his comments, especially where he claimed the majority of Mexican immigrants coming to the U.S. were probably “rapists.”

“It is hard to get mad at Donald Trump for saying stupid things, in the same way you don’t get mad at a monkey when he throws poop at you at the zoo,” Stewart said. “It’s a monkey. It’s what they do. In some ways, it’s on you for watching. What does get me angry is the ridiculous, disingenuous defending of the poop-throwing monkey.”

He then showed clips of Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Fox News’ Steve Doocy, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) all downplaying, denying or defending Trump’s pathetic remarks.

“That is such buzzword-nothing bullsh*t,” Stewart said of Cruz trying to claim this outrage over Trump’s comments is about the “PC” media not wanting to admit there’s a problem with immigration. “Who doesn’t want to admit what?”

Stewart then played Trump’s comments in slow motion, at one point using a bouncing ball you might see on a child’s sing-along video to emphasize what the GOP presidential candidate was saying, since so many other Republicans seem to be trying to claim that’s not what he actually said.

“Stop pretending,” Stewart said. “Trump said Mexico is purposely sending us drugs, killers and rapists. And within that group there may be, he’s not sure, some people who are good. That’s the part he’s not sure about. He’s only sure about the overwhelming number of killers, rapists and drug addicts Mexico has sent us. That is what he f*cking said.”

He also made sure to point out that a study Trump quoted to back up his asinine claims was actually referring to how 80 percent of the women who risk the trip to the United States are raped – which is completely different that the nonsense Trump is saying.


Though Stewart tried to look on the bright side to all of this, saying that there’s no way someone like Trump, who’s clearly a babbling buffoon, is ever going to be taken seriously – only to have his hopes crushed when he showed several polls where “The Donald” had jumped into second place among Republican presidential candidates.

“F*ck me,” Stewart said as he went to commercial.

That pretty much sums up the shocking reality that Donald Trump has skyrocketed to become a leading candidate for the GOP nomination.

    I wonder why Ted Cruz didn’t mention the Mariel Boatlift, “the Marielitos”. Where did they come from? Oh, they came from Cuba, Ted’s Country. History tells us that Castro allowed those with mental illness and criminal records to emigrate from Cuba and immigrate to the USA. History also tells us that this exodus peaked during the Reagan Administration. Castro called these humans “gusanos” in English it means worms. Teddy, Teddy, you’re no better than your former Cuban Commander. Fidel Castro.

  • Thunder Panus

    Trump would make an excellent president.He would probably actually build a wall at the border and halt the illegal invasion we are experiencing now.

    • Kirk welch

      Yes, I’m sure he would. Instead of spending the 3 trillion needed to fix our infrastructure he’d build a wall and employ the illegals to do it. Phfttt. Any one that takes this buffoon seriously should have their right to vote terminated.

    • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      You obviously don’t understand how GOP campaigns work. They talk about doing some random thing, obsess about how the government is broken, then IF they get elected they do none of the things they promise and totally break the government so nothing works at all so they can privatize everything to give no bid contracts to their friends at 10 times the cost of what it would normally cost. If the Donald were elected, you can be that fence (if it were ever built) would cost 20 times of what it should and it would all go to one of his businesses that he just happened to step down from.

      Make no mistake, Trump is in this only for his masturbation and the slight possibility that he can steal your tax dollars to give to his friends and family and a very large scale.

      • Excidium

        YES! Exactly!

      • PRIME79

        x1000!!!

    • FD Brian

      and that would keep people out because all the mexicans who can build a ladder are already here?

    • denver41

      youre a very stupid person…if you have children..just know you have helped make it a worse place.

  • Robert Brastrom

    The fact that Trump is second in the polls just proves what I’ve always believed that most republicans are racist . All though I’m sure I assume that some are good people.

    • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      hahaha….well played

    • roccolore

      Democrats are the racists who defend George Takei.

      • denver41

        moron

      • roccolore

        You Democrats are the morons who would be demanding “hate crime charges” if someone criticized Al Sharpton in a similar manner.

      • denver41

        Yeah…wish i could be as smart as you….vote for people who fk you over…..

      • roccolore

        If you Democrats are so smart, tell us how Mexico treats THEIR illegals.

      • denver41

        You do know Tyson Chicken employs and Houses illegals right? so youre gonna boycott them arent you?

      • denver41

        Does it matter? have you ever been effected by illegal immigration…sides your family most likely coming over here….it strikes me funny…a nation of people who didnt even have papers to step off a boat complain about others….

      • roccolore

        Actually, it does. Mexico and their apologists play the race card every time someone talks about a border fence or immigration laws. Yet Mexico’s are far stricter.

      • denver41

        so you have a hankering to go to Mexico and work…do ya?

  • Eg Kbbs

    My “favorite” part of the reaction is all the Trump defenders who say that Trump said he was only talking about the illegals and not the green cards.

    Transcript of Trump’s speech is readily available online. One place: http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/06/16/donald-trump-transcript-our-country-needs-a-truly-great-leader/

    And even if there weren’t people sneaking in because they are looking to find ways to support their family (which BTW, isn’t that looking to America as the American Dream?), Trump spent such a large part of his speech trash talking the Mexicans. Do we want a POTUS who alienates other countries by unnecessarily bullying tactics ? Shouldn’t the POTUS be able to give a clear speech (add in that as the campaign announcement this was setting the tone for his political race; add that the audience consisted largely by people paid to be there) ? Even if he couldn’t give a clear speech, couldn’t his speech writers come up with something better than I’m Trump. I’m Rich. I’ll tell the rest of the World what to do and they’ll like it or lump it.

  • roccolore

    The same Democrats attacking Donald Trump had no problem with George Takei calling blacks clowns and buffoons.

    • PRIME79

      That never happened. Lol! You righties are so desperate.

      • roccolore

        You liberals are the proven hypocrites who defend George Takei calling blacks “buffoons” and “clowns.”

      • PRIME79

        Hypocrite doesnt mean what you think it means. Wanna see a hypocrite? Look up Bristol-abstanence only-Palin and her 2 pregnancies. Critical thinking just doesn’t exist on the right does it? George Takei called 1 black person a buffoon and a clown you idiot. He said nothing about black people as a whole. Unlike Trump who called all/the majority of Latinos rapists. Lol!! I find your desperation and ignorance to be quite amusing.

      • roccolore

        You are the idiot who would have blacklisted Takei if he mocked Al Sharpton. And you’re the idiot who has the nerve to attack Americans yet defend Mexico. Have you read the Mexican immigration laws?

      • PRIME79

        Lmao!!! You’re adorable.

      • EllisIslandProgeny

        How’s the march to that elusive 270 electoral votes coming along?

      • roccolore

        You Democrats are the hypocrites who lecture on diversity, yet live in all-white neighborhoods. Why? Because you don’t want gangbangers and drugrunners in YOUR neighborhoods as well. You Democrats are ignorant ones who defend La Raza, Voz de Aztlan and other brown supremacists who hate America and whose motto is “All for The Race, nothing outside The Race.”

      • PRIME79

        A) Im black and I live in an extremely diverse area. Plenty of white, black, and brown people. No drug runners(lol! Seriously?) or gangbangers(ha! ha! Dude reality isnt an action movie, relax.)

        B) *points at you and laughs*

      • denver41

        youre a buffoon and a clown. hows that?

      • roccolore

        You Democrats are the clowns who defend racists like George Takei

      • denver41

        Show me where i defended him…if you cant…be quiet.

      • roccolore

        Well, you call anyone who called out Takei’s racism a clown, buffoon, or moron.

      • denver41

        to ANYONE who Defended Takei…Youre a CLOWN BAFFOON and or Moron.

    • Creeayshun Sighuntist

      How is your feces slinging going today? BTW, why in the world would anyone equate Donald Trump, who is running for president, with something an actor didn’t say? Are you ok? Should we call for help for you?

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        Is George Takei running for President?

      • roccolore

        You Democrats are the racists who support La Raza, Voz de Aztlan, and other brown supremacist groups whose motto is “All for The Race. Nothing Outside The Race.” Racist Democrats attacked Arizona’s immigration laws, yet have no problem with those of Mexico.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        seriously ma’am, up the meds. You’ve gone off the reservation. I’m still trying to figure out how you compare a presidential candidate to an actor, but hey I see that you will never come around to figuring that out yourself so I will leave you to your psychosis. Good luck.

      • Creeayshun Sighuntist

        I will DEFINITLEY look it up WHEN he runs for President.

  • denver41

    a Moron playing to Morons…..

  • Larry Jones

    When I think of Donald Trump, I think about the movie, “The Ugly American.” If he should ever be elected president ( don’t laugh, the 2000 election shows anything can happen) the rest of the world will have their thinking confirmed. They will truly know with the election of Donald Trump, America has lost it’s collective mind.
