It’s hard, though, and Jon Stewart is the first to admit it. On Thursday night, he compared watching Trump’s campaign to “eating ice cream on a roller coaster made of blowjobs” because it was so much fun. But he knew he had to focus. There were other candidates making headlines and announcing their campaigns, and it was definitely not what the forefathers predicted when they set up our electoral process.
But Stewart couldn’t help it if every other candidate was a lot less interesting. Trump was like a drug to him: no matter how hard he tried, he always came back to Trump—no matter how dirty it made him.
When Stewart finally got the hit of Trump goodness, he was so happy, he sung about it.
“Sometimes you just gotta say ‘what the fuck’ and ride the blowjob-a-coaster,” Stewart said.
With Trump saying he might run as a third-party candidate if the Republican National Committee treats him unfairly, it looks like Stewart will be able to ride this roller coaster right until his retirement. There’s no doubt he wants to see how far this goes.
