Jon Stewart has analysed Donald Trump’s media appearances of late to explain why Republicans have nothing to fear from his decision to stand for the 2016 presidential election.

In yet another eloquent summary, he described Trump as “the only presidential candidate maybe in history who looks like the back of a Shar-Pei brought to life by an enchanted wig”.

Trump is unlikely to be upset by this comparison considering he recently dismissed Stewart as “the most overrated joke on television” and “a wiseguy with no talent”.

The business magnate announced his decision to run for the Republican nomination on 16 June, but did not file his official paperwork until 23 Tuesday - news that filled Stewart with joy.

“That was close! I very nearly almost closed the show and walked away for good. All systems are go, we’ve got Trump,” Stewart declared.

“Honestly, let Trump run. What’s the harm of riding this crazy train as long as it can take us?

“He’s got no chance. In fact, he’s great for the Republicans, because the more he talks, the more he appears on television, the more he makes the other Republicans’ crazy seem kind of reasonable by comparison.”
