No wonder Jon Stewart left The Daily Show. Who needs to make comedy about American politics when the stories themselves are such goddamn jokes?

Your week in the WTF politics:

Donald Trump made insulting other reality TV star’s hotness a part of his campaign. Because…immigrants? (Pajiba)

In other insane Trump news, his people claim that 1/5 of the population of Mobile, Alabama is expected to turn out to his next campaign stop, necessitating a move to a bigger venue. Unknown is how many are coming for “shits and giggles.” (CNN)

“Traditional family values” lobbyist Josh Duggar is having a tough week. (Pajiba)

Taking a break from standing up for oppressed menfolk, Fox News spoke out about how hard it is to be white nowadays. (HuffPo)

The Dottie’s Sister of the Republican race, Jeb Bush, is under fire for describing the children born in the U.S. to foreign-born parents as “anchor babies.” (NBC)

Social media maven/Presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton fired back with a Twitter double-tap.
