>> John: WELCOME TO THE "DAILY

SHOW."

I'M JOHN OLIVER.

I AM STILL IN FOR JON STEWART

WHO IS SCOURGE COMPETING TO BE

AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL.

OH, NO, THEY VOTED HIM OUT!

THEY VOTED HIM-- DON'T LISTEN TO

THEM, JON.

YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL ON THE INSIDE!

AND THERE IS NO SHAME BEING MORE

CATALOG THAN EDITORIAL.

THAT'S A FACT.

MY GUEST TONIGHT THE WRITER,

DIRECTOR, AND STAFFER A VERY

FUNNY NEW MOVIE "IN A WORLD"

LAKE BELL WILL BE HERE.

VERY GOOD, VERY GOOD.

BUT WE BEGIN TONIGHT WITH

BREAKING NEWS.

>> THE BIG CHILL BETWEEN THE

U.S. AND RUSSIA MAY BE HEADING

FOR THE DEEP FREEZE.

PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS OFFICIALLY

CANCELED HIS ONE-ON-ONE MEETING

WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN.

>> John: CANCELED?

WOW, THAT'S A BIG DIPLOMATIC

SLAP IN THE FACE, A DIP MOVE, IF

YOU WILL.

( LAUGHTER )

ALTHOUGH IF THE PRESIDENT REALLY

WANTED TO HURT PUTIN HE WOULD

HAVE SAID HE WAS COMING AND JUST

STOOD HIM UP.

TRUST ME, THAT HURTS A LOT MORE.

OR IF YOU WANTED TO BE MORE

PASSIVE AGGRESSIVE THE PRESIDENT

COULD HAVE SAID LET'S MEET

SOMEWHERE THAT'S NOT TECHNICALLY

IN RUSSIA LIKE, I DON'T KNOW,

MOSCOW AIRPORT.

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

LOOK, WE ALL KNOW-- WE ALL KNOW

WHY THIS MEETING WAS CANCELED,

RIGHT.

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA FORMALLY

CANCELED NEXT MONTH'S MEETING IN

MOSCOW WITH RUSSIA'S PRESIDENT

VLADIMIR PUTIN.

WHY?

>> MISSILE DEFENSE, HUMAN

RIGHTS, THAT CONTROVERSIAL LAW

THERE THAT BANS GAY

RELATIONSHIPS AND A LOT OF

CONCERN ABOUT HOW IT'S GOING TO

IMPACT THE OLYMPICS IN SOCHI.

>> John: OH, THAT'S RIGHT

BECAUSE RUSSIA WILL NOT ALLOW A

HINT OF HOMOSWULLITY IN AN EVENT

WHERE YOU EITHER WIN A

SKIN-TIGHT LEOTARD OR SPARKLY

TUXEDO FOR YOUR ICE BALLET.

COME ON, COME ON, NOW.

IS THERE NOTHING ELSE THAT LED

AMERICA TO THIS.

>> PRESIDENT OBAMA IS CANCELLING

HIS MEETING WITH RUSSIA'S

PRESIDENT PUTIN OVER TENSIONS

BECAUSEst N.S.A. LEAKER

EDWARD SNOWDEN.

>> John: YES, THAT IS CLEARLY

THE ONLY REASON.

IT'S-- IT'S ALWAYS A GOOD IDEA

TO PAD OUT WITH WHAT YOU REALLY

WANT TO SAY WITH SELF-RIGHTEOUS

HUMAN RIGHTS STUFF LIKE,

"KIMBERLY, WE NEED A BREAK.

I DON'T LIKE YOUR STANCE ON

CHINE AND TIBETAN MONKS AND YOUR

BOOBS ARE WEIRDING ME OUT."

IF WE WANT SNOWDEN BACK ALL WE

NEED TO DO IS CONVINCE VLADIMIR

PUTIN THAT SNOWDEN IS GAY.

THAT AWAY WAYHE'LLOB A PLANE

INTO U.S. CUSTODY FASTER THAN A

DEFINITELY NOT HOMOEROTIC TEAM

OF ELASTIC CLAD MEN
