COUNTRIES FORMERLY RUN BY DICTATORSHIPS, U.S. MOSTLY SUPPORTED, HEY, JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY.

HOW ARE THINGS GOING TODAY IN, I DON'T KNOW, EGYPT

>> Jon: OKAY.

I'LL PUT YOU DOWN FOR A WORK IN PROGRESS.

WOW.

I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU, IT SOUNDS LIKE THIS NEW EGYPTIAN PRESIDENT MOHAMMED MORSI HAS GOT HIS HANDS FULL.

CAN'T WAIT TO SEE HOW HE TACKLES THESE COMPLEX AND URGENT ISSUE

>> THE PROSECUTORS HAVE ORDERED THE ARREST OF POPULAR TELEVISION PRODUCER BASSEM YOUSEF

>> Jon: WHO IS THAT GUY?

HAS HE BEEN SABOTAGING INFRASTRUCTURE OR HARASSING EGYPTIAN WOMEN ON THE STREET OR

UNEMPLOYING EGYPTIAN.

WHAT DOES HE DO

>> HE USES A TV SHOW KNOWN FOR POKING FUN AT THE PRESIDENT.

BASSEM HOSTS A TV SHOW KNOWN FOR POKING FUN AT THE PRESIDENT.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

>> Jon: WAIT A MINUTE.

BASSEM YOUSEF?

THE COMEDIAN?

WHO HOSTS THE INCREDIBLY POPULAR WEEKLY POLITICAL SATIRE SHOW?

NOW I KNOW BASSEM PRETTY WELL.

YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT I WAS SHOCKED THAT THIS WHOLE TIME I HAVE BEEN CONSORTING WITH A CRIMINAL.

WHAT DID HE DO?

I'M READY, I'M READY

>> THE COUNTRY'S TOP PROSECUTOR ISSUED AN ARREST WARRANT CHARGING THE COMEDIAN WITH

INSULTING BOTH THE PRESIDENT AND ISLAM.

>> Jon: THAT'S ILLEGAL?

SERIOUSLY, THAT'S ILLEGAL IN EGYPT BECAUSE IF INSULTING THE PRESIDENT AND ISLAM WERE A

I'M JUST CURIOUS, WHAT WOULD SOMETHING LIKE INSULTING RELIGION SOUND LIKE ANYWAY?

>> Jon: THAT'S INSULTING ALL RIGHT.

WOW.

I'M SURE THAT WHEN PRESIDENT MORSI HEARS ABOUT THAT, HE IS GOING TO BE SO... I'M SORRY.

THAT IS PRESIDENT MORSI?

NO.

I MEAN IT'S THE ONLY WAY TO ENSURE THAT YOUR KID GETS ALL THE ANTI-SEMETIC NUTRIENTS THAT

HE NEEDS.

I GUESS IN A PINCH YOU COULD ABOUT GERBER'S ELDERS OF ZION FORMULA BUT IT'S A LESSER PRODUCT.

YOU KNOW WHAT?

THAT WAS PROBABLY A ONE-TIME THING FOR MORSI.
