At the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, NC, the Best F#@king News Team Ever tests the limits of the Democratic Party's big-tent inclusiveness. (3:40)

WELCOME BACK TO THE SHOW.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

IF I MAY, TOLERANCE, IT'S ONE OF THE BASIC TENANTS OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

BUT IS THERE TRULY ROOM FOR EVERYONE UNDER THE D.N.C.'S BIG TENT?

THE BEST (BLEEP)ING NEWS TEAM HAS MORE.

>> THERE'S ONE KEY MESSAGE AT THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL CONVENTION THAT'S NOT IN DISPUTE.

>> WE ARE THE BIG TENT PARTY.

WE REPRESENT EVERYONE.

>> WE'RE DEFINITELY THE ARMS WIDE OPEN PARTY.

>> WE'RE THE PARTY OF INCLUSION.

>> WE HAVE JUST ABOUT EVERYBODY YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE IN THE PARTY.

>> YES, THEY WERE OPEN TO EVERYBODY.

>> BASICALLY LATINOS, HISPANICS,

BLACK, THE L.G.B.T. COMMUNITY,

WOMEN.

>> EVERYONE'S WELCOME.

>> EVERYONE'S WELCOME.

>> EXCEPT...

>> EXCEPT UNLESS YOU OWN A CORPORATION OR IF YOU'RE A HUNTER, A GUN OWNER, WHITE MALES.

>> REALLY, YOU WANT TO LOSE ALL THE WHITE MALES?

>> THEY'RE A BUNCH OF GUN TOTING HILLBILLY TEA PARTIERS.

THAT'S ALL I HAVE TO SAY.

BANG, BANG, BANG.

>> BUNCH OF JERKOFFS, RIGHT?

>> DEFINITELY.

>> HOW OPEN ARE YOU?

>> WELL, OPEN ENOUGH TO INCLUDE EVERYBODY.

>> OH, REALLY.

WHO WOULDN'T YOU INCLUDE?

>> THOSE BEER TOTING FAKEERS DOWN IN FLORIDA.

THE TAMPA CONVENTION GUYS.

>> YOU KNOW THE TYPES.

>> POT BELLIES.

>> CHURCHGOING.

>> SMALL MINDED.

>> ANTISCIENCE.

>> YOSEMITE SAM HILLBILLIES.

>> WHACK JOBS, EVANGELICALS, GUN NUTS.

>> THEY DON'T WANT TO HEAR A MESSAGE OF DIFFERENCE AND HOPE.

>> WHAT CAN YOU AND I TEACH THESE WHACK JOBS ABOUT INCLUSION?

YOU GO FIRST.

>> YOU CAN'T TEACH THEM ANYTHING.

>> DON'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT SCIENCE.

VERY QUESTIONABLE ON ANY KIND OF THOUGHT THAT INVOLVES MORE THAN TWO OR THREE SENTENCES.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WE ARE THE BIG TENT PARTY AND WE WILL LET MOST ANYBODY IN UNLESS, OF COURSE THEY'RE

CARRYING GUNS.

>> RIGHT, WHO NEEDS THAT 146 MILLION PEOPLE IN YOUR PARTY?

>> THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY, WE DON'T STEREOTYPE OR GENERALIZE.

>> THE TEA BAGGERS GENERALIZE.

>> THIS HAS BEEN HISTORICALLY THE PARTY OF TOLERANCE.

>> THE TEA BAGGERS ARE THE LEAST TOLERANT GROUP I HAVE EVER SEEN.

CAN.

>> ARE YOU SAYING THEY'RE MORE DISCIPLINED.

>> EVIL.

EVEN BEFORE IT WAS APPROPRIATE,

ACTUALLY.

>> THESE CHRISTIAN EVANGELICALS DON'T GET IT BECAUSE I DON'T

BELIEVE THEY EVER ACTUALLY READ THE BIBLE.

>> I HAVE A FEELING THEY HAVE READ IT.

>> WELL, POSSIBLY BUT DIDN'T...

>> NO, MORE THAN POSSIBLY.

>> THIS IS SO INCLUSIVE.

YOU KNOW, WE EVEN INVITE THE REDNECK FREAKS IN.

(LAUGHTER)

>> WE DON'T JUDGE.

>> WHAT DON'T THEY GET ABOUT TOLERANCE?

>> I WOULD NEVER CALL A REDNECK A NAME.

(LAUGHTER)

>> I DON'T KNOW.

I'M THINKING LIKE A COUPLE OF TEETH, YOU KNOW?

HAIR OUT OF PLACE.

MAYBE A NICE GUT.

>> LOOK WHOO!

>> YEAH.

>> HEY, WE'RE GONNA GO DOWN TO TAMPA AND WE'RE GONNA THROUGH A

BIG PARTY AND I'M GONNA PUT ON MY CLEAN T-SHIRT AND BRUSH MY TOOTH!

LET'S GO!

POW, POW!

DO IT!

>> POW, POW!

>> THE WORLD WOULD BE VERY BEAUTIFUL IF WE COULD JUST ACCEPT EVERYBODY'S DIFFERENCES.

>> EXACTLY.

ACCEPT EVERYONE'S DIFFERENCES.

>> UH-HUH.

>> EVERYONE'S DIFFERENCES.

>> YES.

>> WE NEED TO ACCEPT EVERYONE.

>> YOU MEAN I SHOULD ACCEPT THEM?

IS THAT WHAT YOU'RE SAYING?

(LAUGHTER)

>> Jon: THANK YOU, SAM
