Jon Stewart Says Donald Trump Could Inspire New Jewish Holiday (VIDEO)
U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump might inspire a new Jewish holiday with his recent string of controversial comments, Daily Show host Jon Stewart joked on Monday night.
“I really feel like he’s some sort of Jewish holiday waiting to happen,” Stewart said. “We thought the craziness would only last a day but by a miracle, it burned for eight, ten…”
Stewart also suggested the holiday might be named “Holys***ukkah,” a take on Hanukkah, the Jewish festival of lights.
Stewart mocked the GOP candidate throughout his entire show on Monday night. He said Trump’s claim over the weekend that Sen. John McCain “wasn’t a war hero” raised questions about the business magnate.
“What the f*** is wrong with him?” Stewart asked. “At long last, does the man who accused the vast majority of Mexican immigrants of being drug-addicted rapists have no sense of decency?”
Stewart pointed out that Trump’s McCain comments have even drawn criticism from within his own party, and played clips of rival presidential candidates Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Rick Perry and Jeb Bush all denouncing his remarks.
Stewart said, “You’re at the point where even your fellow Republican presidential candidates – people who are trying very hard to not recognize what a terrible person you are – now have to recognize what a terrible person you are.”
Stewart, who early on in the show referred to Trump’s renowned hairdo as “comedy entrapment,” also ridiculed the candidate’s claim during a recent interview that a “medical deferment” stopped him from enlisting in the military. Trump said he suffered at the time from a bone spur but in a subsequent interview couldn’t remember in which foot.
