"America's id is running for President." - Jon Stewart
For the sake of argument, let's pretend that you didn't immediately and instinctively start laughing yesterday when you found out that Donald Trump is running for president (or at least pretending to, like he does every four years). Let's just say that you think of him as a successful business person with a reasonable chance of making good on his promise to apply his unique skills to the handling of our nation.
Were that the case, then the above video from last night's Daily Show—in which Jon Stewart, Jordan Klepper and Hasan Minhaj all experience the most intense simultaneous and continuous orgasms ever witnessed on basic cable at the very thought of a 17-month Trump presidential campaign—might confuse you a tad.
And then, if you saw this Internet exclusive from Stephen Colbert and the team of his upcoming late night show, you might get even more confused.
"I don't get it," this hypothetical version of you might be saying. "Why is this funny? He's simply acting like a normal person who could very well be leading the most powerful nation in history in just a few months' time. I find nothing laughable in his general demeanor."
If that were the case (which I'm sure it is not), that would be very sad for you, because that would mean you were missing out on one of the most phenomenal jokes in political history. And by "one of the most phenomenal jokes in political history," I mean Donald Trump. But you knew that, right?
