Jon Stewart has been given a “gift from Heaven.”

Stewart fairly chortled with glee on Tuesday night’s “The Daily Show” over Donald Trump’s announcement that he is entering the presidential race. Stewart called Trump’s announcement “over half an hour of the most beautifully ridiculous jibber-jabber ever to pour forth from the mouth of a batshit billionaire.”

“America’s id is running for president,” he said. “Trump is the part of your brain that’s like at 3 a.m. says, ‘Let’s go take a dump in a mailbox!’”

Plus, in the clip below, watch Hillary Clinton recite the lyrics to The Beatles’ “Yesterday.” And find out what the Bush family and “Game of Thrones” have in common.
