Stewart opened Tuesday night's Daily Show with an update on where the 2016 Presidential election stands, or as he calls it, "Democalypse 2016: Becoming a Fire Hazard." He joked that while Rick Santorum, George Pataki and Lindsey Graham weren't interesting enough as candidates to keep him at the desk, the idea of a Trump run is hard to resist.
"Guys, guys, guys...I appreciate the effort. My mind's made up," he said. "I'm leaving the show. I'm not staying."
Cue a clip from a news report that Donald Trump says he's considering a run for the Republican nomination.
Stunned, Stewart had a hard time containing his excitement, reminding himself he's made up his mind before suggesting a new way to stay in the conversation after leaving The Daily Show.
"Maybe I'll get a Twitter account," he suggested.
Check out Stewart considering "how much fun could you really have" covering the election, as he pokes fun at Santorum's "prop-filled" speech, Graham's knowledge of how "the Iranians are lying" because of working his family's pool room as a kid, and of course, Trump's "foolproof" plan to defeat ISIS.
