Infused with life and emotion, Congresswoman Marcia Fudge shares her theory about U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, and Jessica Williams explains call and response. (4:17)

CAMPAIGN LOSS?

IT'S UNIMAGINABLE.

(LAUGHTER) SO WHY IS JOHN McCAIN DOING THIS?

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) WELL, THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS REPRESENTATIVE MARCIA

FUDGE-- THAT'S RIGHT, YOU HEARD ME-- (LAUGHTER) MARCIA.

(LAUGHTER) ACTUALLY, CONGRESSWOMAN FUDGE IS ONE OF OUR NATION'S MOST HARDWORKING AND I CAN ONLY

ASSUME DELICIOUS CONGRESS PEOPLE.

(LAUGHTER) SHE HAD A THEORY ABOUT AMBASSADOR RICE.

>> ANY TIME SOMETHING GOES WRONG THEY PICK ON WOMEN AND MINORITIES.

>> COME ON NOW!

>> I HAVE A REAL ISSUE WITH THAT.

SUSAN RICE'S COMMENTS DIDN'T SEND US TO IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN.

>> UH-HUH!

>> WELL --

>> SOMEBODY ELSE'S DID.

I'M PROBABLY NOT THE MOST EDUCATED PERSON IN THIS HOUSE.

>> YOU'RE AN ATTORNEY.

>> BUT I'M CLOSE.

JUST GO ON AND HATE ON.

BUT LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND HATE YOURSELF, NOT THE PEOPLE WHO DO THIS WORK.

THANK YOU.

UH-HUH!

>> Jon:OOOH!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) FIRST OF ALL, WHY ISN'T EVERY PRESS CONFERENCE LIKE THAT?

(LAUGHTER) A PRESS CONFERENCE INFUSED WITH LIFE AND EMOTION.

SHE JUST TURNED THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES INTO TYLER PERRY'S "HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES."

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) THE ONLY PROBLEM IS -- THE ONLY PROBLEM IS I THINK THEY MIGHT BE WRONG.

>> UH-HUH.

>> YOU KNOW IT.

>> THAT'S RIGHT, THAT'S RIGHT.

UH-HUH.

>> Jon: WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, I HUMBLY DISAGREE THE CAUCUS.

>> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, HE HUMBLY DISAGREES WITH THE CAUCUS, UH-HUH.

>> Jon: THAT'S NOT -- JOHN, THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'RE DOING.

YOU JUST REPEATED WHAT I SAID.

>> I'M JUST REPEATING WHAT HE SAYS, UH-HUH.

I DO IT.

I DO IT.

>> JON, CAN I HELP HERE?

>> Jon: JESSICA, COULD YOU PLEASE?

>> I COME FROM BLACK CHURCHES.

IT'S NOT ABOUT REPEATING SOMETHING, IT'S ABOUT FEELING SOMETHING.

>> YOU'VE GOT TO FEEL IT!

>> YOU CAN'T FORCE IT!

>> IT'S A CALL AND RESPONSE.

YOU'VE GOT TO MAKE IT SEEM LIKE YOU'RE PAYING ATTENTION WHEN REALLY YOU'RE NOT.

>> Jon: THAT'S RIGHT.

>> HEY, I DO NOT HEAR A WORD YOU SAID!

>> Jon: .

>> WHOA!

YOU DON'T THINK I'LL GET THIS?

BELIEVE ME, HAVE YOU GUYS EVER SEEN THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT IN BRITAIN?

THAT PLACE IS THE WHITEST BLACK CHURCH YOU'VE EVER SEEN.

(APPLAUSE)

>> FOLLOWING IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MARGARET THATCHER.

>> HERE!

>> YES!

>> HERE, HERE!

>> THERE YOU GO.

>> OKAY, NOW, ALL RIGHT.

>> Jon: I LOVE IT.

NOW, LISTEN, I'M NOT SAYING THE NOVA SCOTIA OVER AMBASSADOR RICE DOESN'T HAVE RACE AS AN INGREDIENT.

>> COME ON NOW, COME ON.

>> RIGHT.

>> Jon: BUT ONLY IN THE SAME WAY THAT RACE AND SEXISM PLAY A SUBTLY CORROSIVE PART IN NEARLY

ALL OF OUR DISCOURSE.

>> PREACH!

>> TELL THE TRUTH.

>> UH-HUH.

>> Jon: THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS, INCLUDING THE BEAUTIFULLY NAMED REPRESENTATIVE

FUDGE --

>> OH, YEAH, FUDGE.

FUDGE.

>> COME ON, KEEP IT COMING!

>> WHAT YOU GOT NOW?

(LAUGHTER)

>> SO MUCH FUDGE!

(LAUGHTER)

>> FORGET ABOUT IT!

>> FUDGE IT OUT.

>> Jon: THEY GET EXCITED ABOUT FUDGE.

>> UH-HUH.

>> Jon: BUT, SEE, THEY'RE JUST -- THE CONGRESSIONAL BLACK CAUCUS IS JUST TRYING TO PUT

McCAIN AND GRAHAM'S INCOHERENT ATTACK ON RICE IN A COHERENT FRAME.

THIS ISN'T RACISM OR SEXISM.

>> NO, IT AIN'T!

>> Jon: IT'S INDISKRIM THAT THE BILE.

MEANING IT DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE.

>> NO, IT DON'T.

>> Jon: NOW, I'M PROBABLY NOT THE MOST EDUCATED PERSON ON COMEDY CENTRAL.

>> NO, BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE COLBERT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE).

>> Jon: .

>> YOU KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!

YOU KNOW THAT'S RIGHT!

>> Jon: I'M PROBABLY THE SECOND.

>> THAT'S THE SOUTH PARK GUYS.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: PROBABLY THE THIRD, I THINK I'M THE THIRD.

>> NO, THERE'S TWO OF THEM!

>> Jon: I'M THE FORTH.

>> DON'T FORGET MY BOY TOSH.

>> I'M THE FIFTH!

>> TOSH IS HELL LA SMART, Y'ALL.

>> Jon: MOTHER (BLEEP).

I'M STARTING TO THINK THIS IS NOT A GOOD IDEA AFTER ALL.

>> THAT SPUN OUT OF CONTROL REAL QUICK, DIDN'T IT?

>> WITH THE QUICKNESS!

>> Jon: HOW DO YOU STOP HYPE CREWS, BY ANY CHANCE?

>> YOU DON'T, THIS TRAIN IS GONE.

TOOT TOOT CHUGA-CHUGA.

>> CAN'T STOP IT.

>> COME ON!

>> I'LL KEEP IT ROLLING.

>> Jon: WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>> COME ON NOW!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
