Watch ‘Daily Show’ Proclaim Trump’s Greatest Tweet

Program’s first “Third Month Mania” tournament comes to thrilling conclusion

The Daily Show‘s first ever “Third Month Mania” competition ended Monday with correspondents Hasan Minhaj and Roy Wood Jr. unveiling the winner of the hotly-contested “Greatest Donald Trump Tweet” bracket.

Before announcing the winner, Minhaj and Wood Jr. recounted a few tournament highlights, from Trump’s incredulous 2013 musing that Steve Jobs’ wife was dating someone new after the tech mogul’s death and a 2014 claim that ABC’s Black-ish was racist, and that people would be furious if there was a show called “White-ish.”

“By the way, they don’t need to call shows White-ish,” Minhaj explained. “They have other names, like Frasier.

But the big winner, the greatest Trump tweet of all time was a short note sent on June 4th, 2014 in the early hours of the morning: “Are you allowed to impeach a president for gross incompetence?”

Wood Jr. and Minhaj then excitedly revealed that The Daily Show was awarding the winning tweet $1 million. Though, technically, as the two explained to host Trevor Noah, the money would be held in a trust for the tweet that the two correspondents would manage. “Trevor we gotta go, man,” Wood Jr. said. “Our foundation is having a board meeting in the Cayman Islands.”
