"If you thought the Republican presidential dance card was full before, the hits just keep on coming," Jon Stewart said on Thursday night's Daily Show, before skewering the presidential candidacies of George Pataki, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, and Lindsey Graham, whom he blasted for jingoism, borderline racism, and more.

It's all great fodder for Stewart. But even that's not enough to entice him to stay.

"Guys, guys, guys, guys," Stewart said. "I appreciate the effort. My mind's made up. I'm leaving the show. I'm not staying."

Even Donald Trump — whom Stewart dubs "F---face von Clownstick," is apparently not enough to change the comedian's mind. Watch the video below. Ben Frumin
