Jon Stewart returned from a short “Daily Show” hiatus with a new gift from the comedy gods — Donald Trump’s most recent scandal, this one involving John McCain not being a war hero.

Stewart makes fun of Trump, of course, and thanks him for providing such great material — “Donald Trump, the patron saint of topical comedians who are just running out the clock.”

But his main point is why is anyone surprised by Trump anymore? In a short montage of fellow Republican candidates disavowing Trump and his remarks, Stewart says, “Yes, does the man who accused the vast majority of Mexican immigrants of being drug-addicted rapists have no sense of decency?”

He ends by comparing Trump to another former candidate, though she was running for vice president — Sarah Palin.

“Here’s the thing I don’t get — why is anyone acting surprised about Trump? The only reason you liked this guy in the first place is because of the terrible things he was willing to say about Obama,” says Stewart. “But Trump has no control over the projectile vomit of d***ishness that come out of his mouth every time he opens it. It was inevitable that some of his word puke was gonna get on you.”

“Once you cast a spell and bring an Internet comment to life, it no longer belongs to you. Only this time the chat-room troll emoji you’ve conjured has $10 billion of its own money. You thought Wasilla Wordsalad was hard to shake? Wait’ll you get Trump Dump on you.”

“The Daily Show” did a follow-up segment about how Trump, much to the delight of hedge fund managers and frat boys everywhere, is the “first openly a**hole president.”

“I’m here, I’m an a**hole, get used to it, you Mexican rapist losers,” says Jordan Klepper as Trump.
