“We’ve been talking a lot about a certain Republican presidential candidate whose campaign has captured America’s inability to turn away from spectacular man-made disasters,” Stewart said at the opening of the show. “But much like excessive masturbation, eventually you feel a deep sense of shame.

“My point is this: Our incessant Trump-gazing has caused us to miss important non-Trump news,” he concluded, before turning the conversation to the Iran-nuclear deal.
