OLDER THEN A SIMILAR SITUATION.

MAGNIFICENT SINGER AND HUMAN

BEING MAVIS STAPLES IS HERE!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

MWAH!

BUT WE BEGIN TONIGHT WITH THE

THE EVER-GROWING LIST OF

SCANDALS THAT HAS BEFALLEN THIS

GREAT NATION.

THERE WAS THE I.R.S. TARGETING

CONSERVATIVE GROUPS, THE D.O.J.

SPYING ON JOURNALISTS, THE

N.S.A. CREEPING ON EVERYONE, AND

I ARE CENTLY G-O-D'S DECISION TO

RUIN THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS.

LET'S ALL AGREE.

LET'S JUST ALL AGREE, WE ARE AT

PRECIPICE OF SCANDAL OVERLOAD

RIGHT NOW SO LET'S PLEASE JUST

TALK ABOUT SOMETHING ELSE.

>> AT THE RISK OF GIVING YOU

SCANDAL OVERLOAD, TONIGHT WE

HAVE A NEW ONE.

>> John: NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!

YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND!

YOU'RE PUTTING ME IN A DIFFICULT

POSITION HERE!

HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO EXPLAIN

THIS TO JON STEWART?

"HEY, BOSS, YEAH, THE SHOW'S

GOING OKAY.

ON THE OTHER HAND, I THINK THE

COUNTRY MIGHT BE COMPLETELY

FALLING APART."

(LAUGHTER)

AND, BY THE WAY, GOOD LUCK

TRACING A FINGER PHONE, N.S.A.!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

SO WHAT IS THIS NEW SCANDAL?

>> SOME OF THE STATE

DEPARTMENT'S OWN AGENTS ARE

CHARGING THAT INVESTIGATIONS

WERE MANIPULATED TO PROTECT

CAREERS OR TO AVOID SCANDAL.

AT LEAST ONE IS CHARGING WHEN

THEY INVESTIGATED A SERIES OF

COVERUPS IT WAS COVERED UP.

(LAUGHTER)

>> John: WOW.

SO A COVERUP OF A COVERUP OF A

SCANDAL!

IT'S LIKE A TURDUCKEN OF LIES.

(LAUGHTER)

THINK NEW SCANDAL SOUNDS

GRIEGING BUT IF THIS WAS ALREADY

TRIPLE COVERED UP, AGAIN, HOW

DID WE FIND OUT ABOUT IT?

>> HE WAS AN INVESTIGATOR FOR

THE STATE DEPARTMENT'S INTERNAL

WATCHDOG AGENCY AND IS NOW A

WHISTLE-BLOWER.

>> YOU ARE KIDDING ME.

ANOTHER WHISTLE-BLOWER.

IT'S THE SECOND ONE IN A WEEK.

IF YOU'RE A WHISTLE, THIS IS THE

WEEK THAT YOU ARE GETTING BLOWN!

(LAUGHTER)

I'M NOT SURE THAT QUITE CAME OUT

RIGHT.

IN FACT, I'M GOING TO GO OUT ON

A LIMB AND JUST CALL IT FOR ALL

OF US.

WE ARE IN THE SUMMER OF THE

WHISTLE-BLOWER.

(LAUGHTER)

SO WHAT IS THIS STATE DEPARTMENT

WHISTLE-BLOWER BLOWING THE

WHISTLE ON-- HE ASKS KNOWING

THAT IT WOULD INVOLVE

PROSTITUTES.

>> ACCUSATIONS OF PROSTITUTES,

DRUG DEALS AND SEXUAL ABUSE NEAR

U.S. EMBASSIES.

A U.S. AMBASSADOR SOLICITED

SEXUAL FAVORS FROM PROSTITUTES.

A MEMBER OF HILLARY CLINTON'S

SECURITY ENGAGED PROSTITUTES

WHILE ON OFFICIAL TRIMS IN

COLOMBIA AND RUSSIA.

>> CLINTON'S SECURITY DETAIL HAD

A "PROSTITUTION PROBLEM" THAT

WAS "ENDEMIC."

>> John: ENDEMIC?

HEY, IT'S NOT MY FAULT, BABY, MY

NEED TO PAY FOR SEX WAS ENDEMIC!

IT WAS JUST PART OF THE CULTURE

AT WORK!

LIKE HOW YOU AND THE GIRLS AT

THE OFFICE ALL DID THAT CLEANS

TOGETHER.

(LAUGHTER)

THINK OF PROSTITUTE AS OUR

GINGER APPLE KALE JUICE.

(LAUGHTER)

NOW AT THIS POINT THE STATE

DEPARTMENT SCANDAL IS JUST

ALLEGATIONS SO AS WHISTLES GO

IT'S THE KIND OF WHIS THAT WILL

AN ASTHMATIC KITTEN MAKES WHEN

IT TRIES TO BREATHE.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

RELAX!

THIS FICTITIOUS CAT IS GOING TO

LIVE A LONG AND HAPPY LIFE.

(LAUGHTER)

OH, YOU KNOW WHAT?

I'M BEING TOLD IT DIED.

(AUDIENCE REACTS)

IT WAS HIT BY A MAKE BELIEVE

CAR.
