The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took another look at the sad state of affairs that is the 2016 GOP clown car and its 17 occupants, starting with Ted Cruz's pathetic attempt at pandering to the youth vote with his extremely creepy Simpsons' imitations and some of the items you might find for sale from their campaigns and supporters on line.

STEWART: They're selling Lindsey Graham Crackers and also Scott Walkers, and of course, Dr. Ben Carson-Ogenics. That's... how will Hillary Clinton answer? [...]

Stewart moved onto the recent Chris Christie announcement that he's throwing his hat into the ring as well: Jon Stewart mocks Chris Christie: You’re not even beating Trump in the GOP’s ‘egomaniac primary’:

Jon Stewart ridiculed Chris Christie’s presidential ambitions on Wednesday’s Daily Show, saying that the New Jersey governor had not only done the unthinkable within his party, but lost his place as the GOP’s resident self-proclaimed “truth-teller.”

“How far must Christie have fallen to be a two-term governor unfavorably compared to a perfume-selling escalateur like Donald Trump?” Stewart asked.

Stewart also couldn’t help but laugh when he recalled Christie telling Fox News that 65 percent of New Jerseyans really told pollsters that the governor would make a lousy president because they wanted him to stay.

“That is the saddest thing I have ever heard,” he said, before offering Christie some straight talk of his own.

“It’s not that New Jersians love you too much to let you go,” Stewart explained. “It’s that you’ve already second second in the Loud Northeastern Egomaniac primary.”
