The new host of the 'Daily Show' sat down with the show's 'Senior Jewish Correspondent' Adam Lowitt to discuss the one minority Republicans 'actually seem to like.'

Lowitt ripped into the speeches by various Republican contenders for president at the recent Republican Jewish Coalition Forum. Lowitt skewered the likes of Governor John Kasich for saying his mother always told him as a 'child to make Jewish friends' and Governor Jim Gilmore who said he 'crammed for this event by watching Schindler's List.'

All of this was, of course, just a precursor to the discussion of Donald Trump's now infamous speech in which he invoked a number of Jewish stereotypes to characterize the crowd he was speaking to.

Trump also said that 'Obama was the worst thing to ever happen to Israel,' to which Lowitt joked:

"The worst! Yes, I cannot think of a single worse thing that has ever happened to Israel. It's just been 65 years of tranquility over there. Trump is a blessing.

Let me put it this way: The man's campaign was only supposed to last one month and by some miracle, it's lasted eight."
