David Letterman put it well when he came out of retirement to make fun of one of the latest GOP presidential candidates last week: Donald Trump makes it so the Republican mascot is the same as Democrats' -- an ass. Rachel Maddow couldn't seem to agree more. During her show on Monday, Maddow devoted a significant chunk of time to poking fun at the business mogul-turned-openly racist presidential candidate, explaining the few solid benefits to Trump's hat being in the ring. Mostly, they have to do with Trump's ability to inadvertently give people a good laugh. "David Letterman [is] still retired, apparently, but working again despite himself," Maddow said, "because Donald Trump is, in that one very specific way, very good for our country: He is good for the well-being and mental health of political satirists!" Watch Maddow's review of Trump's unintentionally hilarious weekend below:
