Donald Trump, Jon Stewart (Comedy Central)

Jon Stewart savors Donald Trump's epic self-destruction: Getting mad at him is like getting mad at a monkey for "throwing poop"

Before jetting off for a two-week "Daily Show" vacay, Jon Stewart decided to pay tribute to the one guy who has been there for him through thick and thin: Donald Trump. The Trumpinator. Fuckface Von Clownstick. You get the gist.

In recent weeks, the GOP presidential hopeful has provided Stewart with a lifetime supply of comedy material. Somehow, "The Daily Show" host managed to whittle the list down to fit in a 10-minute segment.

Focusing in on the most recent fallout over Trump's disparaging "rapist" comment —  including a slew of companies pulling out on contracts with the business magnate —  Stewart expressed shock that they were willing to work with him to begin with.

"I am shocked! I am shocked that so many people were okay with doing business with Donald Trump up until this point," he said.

Something Stewart was not shocked about: That Trump has failed to use his post-bid television interviews to walk back on his "rapist comments." ("Walking back is for losers," Stewart explained -- Trump wants you to know he is not one.)

"It is hard to get mad at Donald Trump for saying stupid things, in the same way that it's hard to get mad at a monkey when he throws poop at you in the zoo," Stewart continued.
