Watch: Jon Stewart Rips Apart Donald Trump and His Ideology

God, this man has been missed.

We have been caring and worrying and mourning about the wrong 'Jon' for a while now. Sure, Jon Snow is great, but he's not even close to the other Jon in terms of importance, charisma and pure entertainment.

We miss Jon Stewart. At least in 'The Daily Show'. For more than 15 years, Stewart has bashed politicians and the media alike and called them out on each and every bit of hypocrisy they have showed. After his departure from the show, Trevor Noah has taken up the mantle and he is doing a great job, but we do miss Jon Stewart. We miss his open, unabashed, dry criticism, we miss his charm, and we miss his cannonball comments.

Recently, at a live-taping of 'The Axe Files' hosted by David Axelrod, we got to see Jon Stewart on the other end of the table. In over one hour, Stewart talks about American politics and the state of the media and of course the upcoming presidential elections.

Talking about Donald Trump, Stewart recalls past altercations with the Republican candidate. He questions Trumps's eligibility in the elections, not in the way Ted Cruz has been subjected to to, but on a more fundamental level: Can a man-child contest the elections?

Watch Stewart take him, and other politicians in an absolutely delightful interview and miss the glory days of 'The Daily Show'.
