[ CHEERING ]>> WELCOME TO THE DAILY SHOW.

I'M JON STEWART.

NICE.

TONIGHT WE GOT OUR SELVES AHUMDINGER ON THE PROGRAM.

A SENATOR FROM THEGREAT STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS,

ELIZABETH WARREN, IS GOINGTO BE JOINING US.

BUT WE BEGIN TONIGHT RIGHTAWAY WITH BREAKING NEWS FROM

THE INSIDE OF ANOTHERHUMAN BEING.

>> MARK AND I VERY EXCITED THATWE HAVE OUR FIRST CHILD ARRIVING

LATER THIS YEAR.

>> OH MY GOD, THEY'VEGOT A CHILD ARRIVING,

HOW DID THEY PULL THAT OFF?REALLY, THAT'S HOW IT HAPPENS?

I MEAN, IF THAT'S HOW ITHAPPENS,

I SHOULD HAVE SIX KIDS! OHREALLY, NOT EVERY TIME?

OH, OKAY.

[ Laughter ]>> HERE'S THE ODD THING

ABOUT THE ANNOUNCEMENT:DARRELL ISSA HAS ALREADY

SUBPOENAED THE BABY TO TESTIFYABOUT BENGHAZI.

TELL US WHAT YOU KNOW, BABY.

[ Laughter ]>> BUT CONGRATULATIONS TO THE

CLINTON FAMILY.

NEWS MEDIA?

SET THE 2016 PRESIDENTIALSPECULATRON TO BABY.

>> EVERYBODY IS WONDERING WHATIMPACT IT MIGHT HAVE ON HILARY

CLINTON'S DECISION TO RUN FORPRESIDENT IN 2016

DOES THE FACT THAT SHE'S GOINGTO BECOME A GRANDMOTHER ON TOP

OF OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FACTORIN?

>> COULD IT PUT A BUMP INHILLARY'S 2016 PLANS?

AND IS IT SEXIST TO ASK?

>> NO SILLY BILLY, OF COURSEIT'S NOT SEXIST.

EVEN THOUGH IT IS A QUESTIONTHAT HAS NEVER EVER BEEN POSED

TO A MALE CANDIDATE EVER.

FOR GOD SAKES, MITT ROMNEY HASLIKE A LITTER OF GRANDCHILDREN.

MITT ROMNEY HAS FOR GOD SAKES,IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN, MITT ROMNEY

HAS LIKE A GRANDCHILD PETTINGZOO!

[ Laughter ]>> THE GUY ADDED THREE

GRANDCHILDREN WHILE HE WASCAMPAIGNING!

HE IS THE ONLY CANDIDATE INHISTORY WHOSE ELECTORAL COLLEGE

TOTAL IS LESS THAN THENUMBER OF CHAIRS HE HAS TO

PUT OUT AT THANKSGIVING. MYPOINT IS HE GOT CRUSHED IN THE

ELECTION BY SOMEONE WITH NOGRANDCHILDREN. YET SOMEHOW

THE GRANDCHILDREN FACTOR NEVERCAME UP IN THE RACE BETWEEN

OBAMA AND ROMNEY. FOR GOD'SSAKE, WHEN WILLIAM HOWARD TAFT

WAS RUNNING IN 1908,HE WAS ACTUALLY PREGNANT.

HE WAS PREGNANT. NO ONE SAIDANYTHING.

IT'S AS THOUGH MEN AND WOMEN ARETREATED DIFFERENTLY.

LIKE THEY'RE FROM TWO DIFFERENTPLANETS. LET'S CALL ONE OF THOSE

PLANETS MARS, AND THEOTHER PLANET, LET'S CALL IT UH,

BLIGORP 7. FOR INSTANCE,SENATOR DIANNE FEINSTEIN,

22 YEAR SENATE VETERAN FROM THEGREAT STATE OF BLIGORP 7.

FEINSTEIN CHAIRS THESENATE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE

WHICH RECENTLY COMPLETED A NEWREPORT ABOUT THE CIA'S BUSH

ERA'S TORTURE PROGRAM. THECOMMITTEE WOULD LIKE TO RELEASE

THEIR FINDINGS THAT THE CIA'SPROGRAMS WERE FAR MORE

BRUTAL AND WIDESPREAD THAN HADBEEN REPORTED THAT THE CIA HAD

BRUTAL AND WIDESPREAD THAN HADBEEN REPORTED THAT THE CIA HAD

OVERSTATED TORTURE'SEFFECTIVENESS.

OR TO PUT THAT ANOTHER WAY.

>> FORMER CIA DIRECTOR MICHAELHAYDEN CHARACTERIZED

SENATOR DIANE FEINSTEIN'SMOTIVATION FOR RELEASING

THE REPORT AS EMOTIONAL.

>>THAT MOTIVATION FOR THEREPORT, CHRIS, MAY SHOW DEEP

EMOTIONAL FEELING ON THE PARTOF THE SENATOR BUT I DON'T THINK

IT LEADS YOU TO AN OBJECTIVEREPORT.

>> Jon: SENATOR JUST NEEDS HERBEAUTY SLEEP.

THAT'S ALL SHE NEEDS.

[ Laughter ]>> SO THE WAY THE FORMER HEAD OF

THE CIA IS DEFENDING THATAGENCY'S USE OF TORTURE IS TO

ARGUE THAT THE INFORMATION INTHE SENATOR'S REPORT IT

UNRELIABLE BECAUSE IT WASIMPARTED UNDER EMOTIONAL

DISTRESS.

WELL -- I TELL YOU, THAT GUY ISGOING TO BE SAD TOMORROW TO SEE

THAT ZINGER IN HIS INBOX.

YOU KNOW, IT IS A THEME WE SEEAGAIN AND AGAIN.

YOU KNOW?

WHEN ALLIES OF CHRIS CHRISTIERELEASED A REPORT EXONERATING

CHRISTIE IN THE BRIDGEGATESCANDAL,

HIS FORMER AIDE BRIDGET ANNEKELLY PROVOKED SIMILAR CONCERNS.

>> SHE SEEMED EMOTIONAL. SHE WASHABITUALLY CONCERNED ABOUT HOW

SHE WAS PERCEIVED BY THEGOVERNOR. A BOYFRIEND HAD ENDED

A RELATIONSHIP. THAT'S INREFERENCE TO ONE OF THE

CHRISTIE OFFICIALS SHE WASWITH, THE REPORT COMMISSIONED BY

MR. CHRISTIE AND RELEASEDTHURSDAY DOUBLES DOWN ON A

STRATEGY OF PORTRAYING MS.KELLY AS DUPLICITOUS, WEEPING

FREQUENTLY AND DEPENDENT ON MENFOR APPROVAL AND STABILITY.

>> NO?

BUT THE REPORT ALSO CONCLUDEDTHAT KELLY, QUOTE, WOULD LOOK

MUCH PRETTIER IF SHE SMILED. ANDCONCLUDED THAT THE COMMISSION

HATED TO SEE HER RESIGN BUTLOVED TO WATCH HER GO.
