COMEDY CENTRAL

WELCOME TO THE DAILY SHOW!

MY NAME IS JOHN OLIVER, I'M

IN FOR JON STEWART WHO IS

SPENDING THE SUMMER

UNDERCOVER POSING AS A

HIGH-SCHOOL STUDENT POSING

TO BUST A DRUG RINK [BLEEP]

I THINK I JUST OUTED HIM.

NOW THEY'LL REALIZE HE IS

NOT A REAL TEENAGE GIRL.

GET OUT OF THERE REBECCA,

RUN AS FAST AS YOUR HAIRY

LEGS CAN CARRY YOU!

OUR GUEST TONIGHT IS HERE TO

TALK ABOUT THE FINAL BOOK BY

THE LATE, GREAT, DAVID

RACKOFF, SARAH VOWELL IS

GOING TO BE WITH US THIS

EVENING.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> WE BEGIN TONIGHT IN EGYPT,

BEST KNOWN FOR ITS

SPECTACULAR SUPPORTING ROLE

IN BRENDAN FRASIER'S THE

MUMMY AND THE MUMMY RETURNS.

HOW DID EGYPT NOT GET

NOMINATED FOR THAT MOVIE.

NOW IF YOU RECALL IN 2011

EGYPT HAD A BONA FIDE

PEACEFUL AND POPULAR

REVOLUTION ENDING THE RULE

OF LONG TIME DICTATOR HOSNI

MUBARAK AND USHERING IN

EGYPT'S FIRST FREE ELECTION

IN 5,000 YEARS.

WHEN OF COURSE A BIRD WITH

EYES WITH LINES UNDER IT WON

A COMFORTABLE EIGHT POINTS.

THEN IN 2012 MOM-- MO MAM ED

MORSI WAS ELECTED PRESIDENT

AND EGYPTIAN COULD COULD

ENJOY THE SWEET FRUITS OF

DEMOCRACY.

JUST ONE PROBLEM O EGYPT

DOES I HAVE WARM CLIMATE AND

YOU KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN TO

FRUIT.

>> JUST HOURS AGO THE

COUNTRY'S EXPERIMENT WITH

DEMOCRACY APPEARED TO GO UP

IN FLAMES.

THE MILITARY REMOVED

MOHAMMED MORSIST-- MORSI,

SUSPENDED THE CONSTITUTION

AND INSTALLED THE COUNTRY'S

TOP JUDGE AS INTERIM

PRESIDENT.

>> THAT'S RIGHT, INTERIM

PRESIDENT, OR AS IT

INCREASINGLY IS BEING KNOWN,

THE ONLY KIND OF PRESIDENT

EGYPT HAS.

WELL, WE'VE GOT AN

OLD-FASHIONED MILITARY

COUPON OUR HANDS.

THE ARMY SUB VERSING THE

DEMOCRATIC WILL OF THE

PEOPLE, THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE

MUST BE DEVASTATED.

>> ARMY HELICOPTERS FLYING

EGYPTIAN FLAGS CIRCLED

OVERHEAD.

PROMPTING ROARS OF APPROVAL

FROM THE PROTESTORS IN

TAHRIR SQUARE.

>> A HEART DRAWN IN THE SKY,

MESSAGE FROM EGYPT'S

MILITARY, THEIR SUPPORTERS

ON THE SQUARE BELOW.

>> OH, EGYPTIAN AIR FORCE,

ARE YOU TRYING TO SEDUCE THE

ENTIRE POPULATION OF CAIRO?

BECAUSE FIRST THEY DID A SKY

WRITTEN VALENTINE.

THEN SOME SKY WRITTEN

FLOWERS AND THEN SOME SKY

WRITTEN HOOKUP PLANS FOR

LATER.

BUT MORSI WAS BARELY IN

POWER FOR-- GROW UP, GROW

UP.

MORSI WAS IN POWER BARELY

FOR A YEAR.

WHAT COULD HE POSSIBLY HAVE

DONE TO MAKE EVERYONE SO

GLAD TO SEE HIM GO.

>> MORSI WAS GOING AROUND

PUTTING POLITICAL OPPONENTS

IN JAIL, HARASSING THEM,

PHYSICALLY INTIMIDATING

THEM.

>> IMPOSING HIS WILL AND

SIDELINING LIBERALS AND

MODERATE VOICES.

>> THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD

HAVE CURVED RELIGIOUS FRO

DOM.

>> THE ECONOMY IS ON THE

BRINK OF COLLAPSE,

UNEMPLOYMENT IS TERRIBLE.

TOVER TURE IS NOW MORE UNDER

MORSI THAN MUBARAK.

>> WOW THAT IS AN IMPRESSIVE

AMOUNT OF STUFF IN JUST 12

MONTHS.

HE REALLY LIVED UP TO HIS

CAMPAIGN SLOGAN MORSI 2012,

SO WITH MORSI GONE

EVERYONE'S HAPPY EXCEPT,

HERE'S THE THING, THEY ARE

NOT.

YOU MIGHT REMEMBER FROM A

LITTLE EARLIER MORSI WAS

DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED WHICH

MEANS A LOT OF THE 13

MILLION PEOPLE WITHOUT VOTED

FOR HIM ARE PRETTY PISSED

OFF.

THEY ARE PISSED OFF FIRST AT

THE ARMY AND SECONDLY

THEY'RE MAD WITH-- GUESS

WHO?

>> PROTESTORS LIKE ALLAH

REGULAR ABBY SAYS THE U.S.

TALKS ABOUT-- BUT DID

NOTHING TO PROTECT EGYPT

DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED

PRESIDENT.

>> MR. MORSI WILL BE BACK.

WILL BE BACK.

YES, WE CAN.

I WANT TO SAY TO OBAMA, YES,

WE CAN.

>> HEY, HEY, HEY!

THAT IS OUR UPLIFTING SLOGAN

TO BE IRONICALLY APPROPRIATED

AND SAR CASTICALLY THROWN

BACK INTO OUR PRESIDENT'S

FACE.

GET YOUR OWN!

BUT OKAY, OKAY.

SO MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD IS

ANGRY WITH AMERICA.

SPOILER ALERT.

THAT'S FINE.

BECAUSE AT LEAST THIS WEEK

WE HAVE MORSI'S OPPONENTS ON

OUR SIDE.

>> THEY HAVE THEIR OWN

COMPLAINTS WITH THE U.S.

AS THIS POSTER MAKES CLEAR,

THEY BELIEVE AMERICA WAS TOO

CLOSE TO MOHAMMED MORSI AS

HIS CONSERVATIVE ISLAMIC

PARTY.

>> HOLY [BLEEP].

>> SO EVEN NATIONS THOUGHT

OF ACTUAL
