Stewart targeted not only O’Leary but also the rest of the investment community.

In a clip shared on “The Daily Show” YouTube channel, Stewart said investors think they can break whatever rules they want and that “the only immoral practice in the capitalist system is to use that money for people who may need it.” Trump seems to have the same idea, but the law does not want him to get away with it this time. The legal cases he is involved in have shaken his finances, and the former president has been finding ways to keep up, even going as far as selling MAGA-customized bibles to Republicans and any who will buy it.
