tv The Daily Show With Jon Stewart Comedy Central October 29, 2014 6:27pm-6:59pm PDT
>> jon: welcome to the daily show i'm jon stewart. day two austin, texas. [cheers and applause] we're having a ball. having a ball. i am, i am, i will say this. i am full. i am full. i may actually sleep tonight in a flower tortilla. i may go in it and roll up. i think that's what they ask you at night. would you like to sleep in a flour tortilla or acorn tore tee ya. we're excited. austin texas. our guest represents texas' 20th district jaquin castro. before we get to that.
what about the president. nobody likes him. everyone hates him. accord to get white house press secretary there are reports that the president thinks he should -- even democrats running frantically from barack obama like he was a bad guy in a chain saw massacre movie you have here every couple of years. it's the subject of tonight' tos discussion. how toxic is the president? innocuous question turning no i got you. >> did you vote for president obama 2008, 2012? >> this election isn't about the president. it's about -- >> i know. >> it's about making sure -- >> i was a delegate for hillary
clinton. >> you're not going to answer. >> again, the president is not on the ballot. >> jon: it looked like a deposition from a murder trial. president who? i love how the reporter was like, was he on the ballot. how about this. marry or vote for brad pitt, george clooney, barack obama. go. alright. clearly this is one way to avoid destroying your campaign by associating it with the leader of your party. where as arkansas democratic mark prior went another way. >> do i think the president has done a good job handling the ebola situation? >> i would say -- it's hard to
know because. [ applause ] >> jon: you are acting like she found your porn. is this your penthouse magazine? uhhh -- noooo. i would say -- >> are you a sleep yet? [laughing] >> jon: even those who admit they did vote for the president can't summon the courage to stand behind the decision. >> mark telling the washington examiner i did vote for president obama. that's irrelevant. the president is not relevant. he's gone in two years. >> jon: two years. he only had a four year term!
two years is half the term. the rest of the super bowl isn't relevant. it will be done in two quarters. how irrelevant is the president? irrelevant enough that even his own press secretary won't mention him during a spirited defense of the president's relevance. >> senator is entitled to his opinion. i think the vast majority of americans would agree who ever the sitting president of the united states happens to be is relevant in a lot of important ways. >> jon: whether that sitting president happens to be abraham lincoln or as is the case now president current occupant. now the enviroment, the enviroment for democrats the environment for democrats is so bad now that in kentucky their
senate candidate alison grimes is losing to a guy who has to recruit enthusiastic supportsers the same way you recruit people to a time share presentation. >> our expensed paid. >> an e-mail from mcconnell's staff ask volunteers to join him on a bus trip this week and contribute to a en house kwraft i can atmosphere. the transportation is free and meals, hotels are taken care of for two nights. >> hands off the minibar. [laughing] >> there is not enough. this guy has been in the senate for 30 years. he's going to be the most powerful republican in the
senate. he's got to buy friends and manipulate. >> people try to tell me how to do my commercials. mitch, how about using a talking baby. that's been done before. maybe this isn't a bad idea. i'm mitch mcconnell and i approve this message. [laughing] >> it turns -- it turns even through linen pants. blood hounds. >> jon: pretty good on the testicles. pretty good indeed. like a sand paper box for your ball zach. it's pretty, pretty --
>> but nothing better illustrates the hole democrats are in better than new hampshire sep ate race between brown and shaheen. this has been unbelievable. if there isn't a brown shaheen in urban dictionary there is now. >> the race is extremely tight. den krat i can senator leads the republican brown by two points. statistical tie after the margin of errors. [beep] >> jon: gene r. jean shaheen is incumbent. popular in new hampshire. popular new hampshire former governor. her name is way funner to say than brown. she is so new hampshire even a snow shoe wearing granite in fall foliage is like, we get it you're from new hampshire. she statistically is tied with this guy. >> scott brown was asked about
being a carpet bagger and crossing the border. his comment has drawn a lot of attention. he said do i have the best credentials. probably not. because you know, whatever. i have long and strong ties to the state. >> jon: probably not. what? what the what? probably not because you know whatever. [laughing] are you running for senate or answering whether highy is getting back with liam. seems cavalier for someone involved in the nation's security. >> the deep concerns there are members of isis coming through the border now many. >> i want to secure the boarder and keep out the people who do us harm. >> jon: i know how dangerous new hampshire border's are. i'm not from here and i'm almost
your senator. scott brown has been a senator. how was scott brown's border vigilance when he was a senator? the washington post reports today that brown missed all six hearings onboarder security when he was a senator from massachusets. shaheen is tied with this guy. that guy. that's where the democrats are at. neck and neck with a republican who admits he's not the best candidate running for a senate in a state he's not from, on a issue he ignored when he was a senator from the a different state. my recommendation is grab peanut but ther and some blood hounds. not going to get you any votes but sure will feel
