Jon Stewart came out of retirement to try and make sense of Donald Trump's Republican candidacy

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart doing a comedy skit together is like Christmas in July: it’s almost too perfect to be true.

And yet it’s real, as Colbert dragged the former Daily Show host from a tranquil retirement to try and make sense of Donald Trump's successful Republican presidential candidacy.

The pair proceed to shine a harsh spotlight on a range of Trump's faux pas'.

And it's a work of art.

Stewart: "The guy who did the McDonald’s commercial with Grimace?"

Colbert: "Yes"

Jon Stewart: "The guy from The Apprentice?"

Colbert: "Yep"

Stewart: "The guy who filed bankruptcy in 1991?"

Colbert: "And '92."

Stewart: "And 2004."

Colbert: "And 2009."

Stewart: "Mike Tyson’s business adviser? That guy?"

Colbert: "Indeed, the same guy."

Stewart: "The guy who wrote, and I quote, 'Oftentimes when I was sleeping with one of the top women in the world, I would say to myself, 'can you believe what I am getting''?"

Colbert: "Yes, the same guy who said, 'I have black guys counting my money, I hate it. The only guys I want counting my money are short guys who wear yarmulkes all day.'"
