Jon questions the photo of an anonymous man's bulging underwear sent from Anthony Weiner's Twitter account (6:52)

>> Jon: WELCOME BACK TO THE

PROGRAM.

DID I HAVE A NICE VACATION?

YOU KNOW, THIS TIME I WAS REALLY

EXCITED TO COME BACK TO WORK

BECAUSE WE HAD A DOOZY TEED UP

HERE.

A LITTLE STORY ABOUT A

CONGRESSMAN, TWITTER ACCOUNT AND

A PHOTO OF WHAT MAY OR MAY NOT

HAVE BEEN HIS (bleep).

>> HE CAME FROM CONGRESSMAN

ANTHONY WEINER'S TWITTER ACCOUNT

OVER THE WEEKEND.

A PHOTO OF AN ANONYMOUS MAN'S

BULGING UNDERWEAR.

THE PICTURE IMMEDIATELY DELETED

FROM HIS ACCOUNT WAS SENT TO

THIS 21-YEAR-OLD COLLEGE

STUDENT.

>> Jon: YOU KNOW.

THAT'S THE PICTURE RIGHT THERE.

I HAVE TO TELL YOU, THIS TWITTER

IS SOMETHING ELSE.

YOU KNOW IN THE OLD DAYS A

CONGRESSMAN HAD TO CHISEL IMAGES

OF HIS PENIS ON LIMESTONE.

AND THEN HAVE A RUNNER TAKE THE

PICTURE TO WHICHEVER DAMSEL THEY

WANTED TO HOAR FIVE.

HERE IS MY DILEMMA.

ONE, WE NEWS BASED COMEDY STORY

LOOKING AT A STORY ABOUT A SNAP

SHOT THAT APPEARS TO BE AN AMPLE

HELPING OF PENIS --

[LAUGHTER]

-- ALLEGEDLY POSTED BY A

CONGRESSMAN WHOSE SAME IN A

SYNONYM FOR PENIS.

FOR A PROGRAM LIKE THIS THE

PHRASE SWEET SPOT BRINGS TO

MIND.

[LAUGHTER]

IF WE WERE TO HAVE A WHEELHOUSE,

THIS WHEELHOUSE WOULD BE WHERE

THIS STORY WOULD RECEIVE ITS

MAIL.

[LAUGHTER]

GET ITS CALL.

THIS WOULD BE THIS STORYIES

BUILDING ADDRESS.

THAT WOULD BE LET'S DO THIS

STORY CATEGORY.

THE CONS OF THIS STORY IS THIS

IS MY FRIEND ANTHONY.

NOT THIS BUT THIS.

THIS GUY IS A FRIEND OF MINE AND

CONTRARY TO THE "NEW YORK TIMES"

REPORTING WE WERE NEVER

ROOMMATES BUT 25 YEARS AGO HE

AND SOME FRIEND OF MINE FROM

COLLEGE HAD A HOUSE AT DEWEY

BEACH THINK JERSEY SHORES MEETS

YENTL.

WHEN I WASN'T BAR TENDING OR

CLEARING PLATES OFF I WOULD HEAD

DOWN FOR FREE LOADERS WEEKEND.

JONNY DOESN'T CHIP IN THEY WOULD

CALL ME AFFECTIONATELY OR SO I

CONVINCED MYSELF.

AS A COMEDIAN THIS IS SAY SLAM

DUNK.

WEINER NAME, WEINER PICTURE.

WHERE'S MY CHECK.

I WOULD -- AS A FRIEND OF HIS, I

HAVE MY DOUBTS ABOUT THE

VERACITY.

MY THOUGHTS STEM FROM THIS.

NO WAY NEW YORK CITY (bleep)

WAY.

SERIOUSLY.

NO WAY!

NO WAY!

IN REAL LIFE MY MEMORY IS THIS

CAT HAD A LOT MORE ANTHONY AND A

LOT LESS WEINER.

THIS IS NOT WHAT I REMEMBER.

[LAUGHTER]

TO BE FAIR, MUCH OF OUR TIME

TOGETHER WAS SPENT SWIMMING IN

THE FRIGID WATERS OF THE

ATLANTIC OCEAN WHICH AS MANY OF

YOU HAS A NOTORIOUS SMALLENNING

EFFECT REFERRED TO AS THE

PHENOMENON AS EL PINO.

GO OWE TO THE PACIFIC IT'S A

BOTTLENOSE.

IN THE ATLANTA YOU GET A DOLPHIN

WHO IS LIKE, I DON'T KNOW WHAT

HAPPENED.

I SWEAR TO GO THIS HAS NEVER

HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE.

[LAUGHTER]

DOLPHINS ARE ALSO OLD JEWS.

[LAUGHTER]

YOU KNOW, I'LL BE HONEST WITH

YOU THE ONLY THING THAT ANTHONY

AND THIS GENTLEMAN HERE APPEAR

TO HAVE IN COMMON IS THAT THEY

BOTH LEAN HARD TO THE EXTREME

LEFT.

BOOM!

BOOM!

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

CUT ME, MICK.

[LAUGHTER]

I DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THIS

IS.

I I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S GOING

ON.

I HOPE IT'S NOT FOR REAL.

HE INSISTS HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT

WAS HACKED.

I NEED A TRUSTED NAME IN NEWS,

MAYBE THE MOST TRUSTED NAME IN

NEWS TO BRING SOME INSIGHTFUL

REPORTAGE FOR THIS.

>> THIS BECOME THE SUBJECT OF A

SERIOUS WAR BETWEEN LIBERAL

BLOGS SUGGESTING IT'S A

CONSPIRACY AND OTHERS

QUESTIONING THE HKING CLAIM.

>> THEY COULD CALL THE CAPITOL

POLICE OR THE F.B.I. AND SAY

COME ON IN AND LAUNCH AN

INVESTIGATION BECAUSE I WAS

HACKED.

WHY HASN'T HE DONE THAT?

>> WE DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER TO

THAT.

I ASKED CONGRESSMAN WEINER'S

PRESS SECRETARY ABOUT IT TODAY.

I DIDN'T GET A RESPONSE.

>> Jon: I GUESS THAT'S THE END

OF IT.

THE LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE

BLOGS HAVING AN ALL-OUT WAR THEY

ARE PROBABLY NOT DOING ANYTHING

ABOUT THE STORY EXCEPT SHOWING

THAT THE TAGS FROM THE PHOTO

DON'T MUCH THE CAMERA HE USES.

IT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF

MANIPULATION BUT IT'S ODD THAT

THE ONLY PERSON WHO SAW THE

TWEET HAS A HISTORY OF SENDING

HARASSING MESSAGES TO THE WOMAN

WHO RECEIVED THE TWEET.

THAT SOUNDS A LOT LIKE REPORTING

SLOWDOWN WOOD WOODWARD AND

BLOGSTEIN.

LET THE BIG GUYS HANDLE WITH

WITH THEIR TRADEMARK I GUESS

WE'LL NEVER KNOW.

THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LET A GUY

COME ON SAYING HE IS A SEXUAL

PREDATOR PARTICULARLY IF THE

ACCUSER IS ONE WHO HAS SWORN TO

DESTROY THE LEFT.

>> GIRLS QUITE YOUNG, YOUNGER

THAN THE GIRL IN QUESTION HERE

TALK ABOUT REP WEINER.

>> WE'LL PUT THOSE QUESTIONS TO

THE REPRESENTATIVE, HE IS NOT ON

THE SHOW NOW TO ASK HIM ABOUT

THANK YOU CAN FIND OUT ABOUT

THEM.

YOU DON'T NEED TO WAIT FOR

SOMEONE TO CALL YOU BACK.

YOU CAN DO LIKE AN -- WHAT DO

YOU CALL IT -- INVESTIGATION

USING SOME TYPE OF -- I DON'T

KNOW -- JOURNALISM.

YOU CAN DO THE INVESTIGATIONS

BEFORE HE COMES ON THE TV.

AND -- I'M SORRY THAT'S NOT ME

TALKING THAT'S MY ANGER AT THIS.

SERIOUSLY.

I MEAN -- (bleep) IT'S NOT

THAT BIG!

[LAUGHTER]

IT CAN'T BE.

[LAUGHTER]
