Please note that like most live stand up, this clip has some eff bombs and other swearing. Headphones at work.

Jon Stewart entertained at the "Stand Up for Heroes” charity event by telling the tale of when Donald Trump tweeted about him. Trump "reminded" Twitter that Jon's real last name is Liebowitz, and Jon should be "proud of his heritage."

"Oh, I think this guy's trying to let people know, I'm a Jew. Doesn't my face do that?"

Trump's campaign reflects the current Republican Party / Alt-Right anti-Semitism that has risen to the surface hot and fast as Trump embraced Breitbart's Steve Bannon as his campaign chair.

Don't forget that every time the Benghazi committee and/or Trump say "Sidney Blumenthal" they are blowing not a dog whistle, but an air horn.

Stewart also joked about Trump's charge that the election is "rigged" if he doesn't win.

“Dude, you live in a tower with your name on it in gold. How well would you be doing if the man wasn’t keeping you down?”
