Germany cools on President Obama following the NSA intelligence gathering controversy. (4:12)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> John: WELCOME TO "THE DAILY

SHOW"!

I AM JOHN OLIVER STILL HERE FOR

JON STEWART WHO, AT THIS HOUR,

REMAINS TRAPPED IN A CHILEAN

MINE WITH 18 OTHER TALK SHOW

HOSTS.

(LAUGHTER)

MY GUEST TONIGHT: THE FILMMAKER

OF A NEW DOCUMENTARY "GIDEON'S

ARMY" DAWN PORTER IS HERE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

FANTASTIC, FANTASTIC

DOCUMENTARY.

BUT LET'S START TONIGHT WITH OUR

PRESIDENT, BARACK HANK OBAMA.

(LAUGHTER)

HE HAS BEEN HAVING A BIT OF A

ROUGH TIME DOMESTICALLY: FAILED

PUSH FOR GUN CONTROL, NATIONAL

SECURITY LEAKS, HIS INCREASINGLY

PATHETIC JUMP SHOT.

(LAUGHTER)

OR, AS IT'S KNOWN IN THE WHITE

HOUSE NOW, AIR BALL ONE.

(LAUGHTER)

NOW, NONE OF THIS IS MAKING HIM

PARTICULARLY POPULAR AT HOME AND

LOOK AT HIM.

LOOK HOW SAD WE'VE MADE HIM.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

LOOK HOW SAD HE'S PARTIALLY MADE

HIMSELF.

HE'S LOST THAT "BEING LOVED"

FEELING ANDING LIKE A FIGURE

FROM GREEK MYTHOLOGY, HE MUST

TRAVEL TO FIND THAT WHICH HE HAS

LOST IN A PLACE FAR FROM HOME.

THE JOURNEY BEGINS.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> John: YES.

YES.

HE MUST FIND IT.

YES, HE IS CURRENTLY IN THE

MIDST OF THE FIRST OF TWO SUMMER

TRIPS ABROAD.

TODAY WITH HIS BIG SPEECH IN

WHAT I CALL "THE HAPPIEST PLACE

ON EARTH," GERMANY.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

HEY, HEY, HAVE YOU BEEN THERE?

HAVE YOU BEEN THERE?

I MEAN, YOU'RE RIGHT, BUT HAVE

YOU BEEN THERE?

GERMANY'S ACTUALLY ALWAYS BEEN

GOOD TO PRESIDENT OBAMA.

BACK IN 2008 BEFORE HE WAS EVEN

PRESIDENT 200,000 GERMANS TURNED

UP TO HEAR HIM SPEAK.

A MEASUREMENT KNOWN IN GERMANY

AS HALF A HASSELHOFF CONCERT.

(LAUGHTER)

OR IN GERMAN HEFTY HASSLE HALF

CONCERT!

IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL LANGUAGE.

SO TO GET HIS MOJO BACK THE

PRESIDENT IS BACK IN BERLIN FOR

A BRANDENBURG PICK ME UP.

NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE SEX

ACT OF THE SAME NAME.

(LAUGHTER)

IS HE STILL A ROCK STAR OVER

THERE?

>> HE'S NOT THE ROCK STAR HE WAS

WHEN HE WAS RUNNING FOR THE

PRESIDENCY AND HAD 200,000

PEOPLE OUT THERE SWOONING OVER

HIM.

WE'RE EXPECTING WELL BELOW

10,000 TO SEE HIM TODAY.

>> John: WOW!

LOSING 95% OF YOUR AUDIENCE IN

JUST FIVE YEARS.

THAT'S BASICALLY MAKING OBAMA

THE NBC OF PRESIDENTS.

(LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE)

THAT'S RIGHT.

SO THE TRIP TO GERMANY WAS A

SLIGHT DISAPPOINTMENT OR, AS

THEY SAY IT IN GERMNY (SPEAKING

GERMAN)

LIKE BUTNER THE MOUTH, LIKE YOUR

TONGUE IS PLYING THE VIOLIN.

WHAT IS WITH THE TINY TURNOUT.

>> THE GERMAN PEOPLE ARE REALLY

UPSET ABOUT THE N.S.A.

CONTROVERSY BECAUSE THEY HAVE A

HISTORY WITH THE SECRET POLICE,

THE STASI.

>> John: I GUESS THAT MAKES

SENSE!

THE PRESIDENT'S WHOLE N.S.A.

EXCUSE OF "WE ONLY SPY ON

FOREIGNERS" DOESN'T PLAY SO WELL

WITH -- UM, WHAT'S THE WORD?

OH, FOREIGNERS.

(LAUGHTER)

AND THIS SPYING THING IS REALLY

HAUNTING HIM.

AND NOT JUST IN GERMANY.

EARLIER THIS WEEK HE WAS IN

IRELAND FOR THE G-8 SUMMIT, AN

IMPORTANT CHANCE TO BUILD TRUST

BETWEEN NATIONS.

BUT BEFORE THE HAND SHAKE

CEREMONY WAS EVEN OVER --

>> THE BRITISH NEWSPAPER THE

"GUARDIAN" HAS DROPPED YET

ANOTHER SECURITY BOMBSHELL.

THE LATEST REPORT FROM THE

"GUARDIAN" FINGERS BOTH THE U.S.

AND THE U.K. FOR SPYING ON

FOREIGN LEADERS.

>> AT THE G-20 SUMMIT IN 2009

THE BRITS EVEN SET UP FAKE

INTERNET CAFES TO STEAL E-MAIL

INFORMATION FROM DELEGATES.

>> John: OKAY, THE BIGGEST

SHOCKER THERE: WHO WAS STILL

USING INTERNET CAFES IN 2009?

(LAUGHTER)

YOU KNOW, THERE'S AN OLD SAYING

IN THE SPY GAME: NEVER TRANSMIT

CLASSIFIED DATA NEXT TO A

HOMELESS MAN
