tv   The Daily Show With Jon Stewart  Comedy Central  March 24, 2014 11:00pm-11:32pm PDT

11:00 pm
- or will there be? [menacing music] ♪ >> from comedy central's world news headquarters in new york, this is "the daily show" with jon stewart. ["daily show" theme song playing] [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome to "the daily show". my name is jon stewart. [cheers and applause] that's a fact. thank you for joining us. our guest tonight oh, she puts the huff in huffpo. awr -- arianna huffington. tonight the malaysian flight
11:01 pm
seems to have shown the worst. >> a jumbo jet carrying 239 people. we're doing everything we can to get as many detail as possible from the sources around the world. >> jon: the accurate and humble assessment from cnn until they realized oh, (bleep) we have 23 hours and 59 minutes left to fill. [ laughter ] (bleep) it let's go nuts. and they did. with everybody -- everything in their bag of tricks. giant floor maps. big flake airplanes. little fake airplanes. holographic airplanes. no airplane detail left unspoken. >> a plane like this is around 61, 62 meters end to tend. 61-62 side to side. >> jon: you are telling them what a plane looks like? [laughter] did you forget who watches cnn?
11:02 pm
you could tell 90% of your viewers look out the airport window at the plane they are about to get on. [ laughter ] but, of course -- [ applause ] there's a saying cnn is popular at airports. [laughter] man does not live by hologram alone. give me a -- >> people are asking about black holes and on and on and on and conspiracy they're rows. he says what else do you think about? deji says it's like the movie lost. i know it's preposterous but is it preposterous, do you think, mary? [laughter] >> jon: don't answer, mary it's a trap. [ laughter ] some sort of weird bermuda
11:03 pm
triangle where questions are answered before they are asked. [laughter] >> a small black hole would suck in our entire universe. we know he it's not that. the bermuda triangle is often weather and lost is a tv show. [ laughter ] >> jon: well -- [cheers and applause] -- i know it's a tv show but is it, mary? [laughter] look at me, mary. mary, look at me! [laughter] is it? [laughter] you have to drive all the way down to the studio, mary, level with me, mary. [ laughter ] wow, did that lower the bar, cnn. but i think you can go lower. >> investigators sometimes use psychics. why hasn't anyone considered the services of a credible psychic
11:04 pm
specializing in missing persons? it sounds incredible but they have been used before. >> jon: yeah, while we're at it why not use that octopus that always predicts the world cup? why not strap wings to wolf blitzer and let him lose because in order to catch a plane you must become a plane. [laughter] cnn's missing airline obsession not only doubled their primetime ratings it itself became news because the only thing less likely than an airplane falling out of the sky is cnn's ratings doubling. >> cnn anchor brought up the theory something supernatural could be at play. >> the network is in dire ratings trouble. they get a pulse. okay. so the executives order you guys have to do this wall to wall. >> jon: you have to be careful
11:05 pm
o'reilly or fox's coverage of cnn's over coverage will be covered. >> what do you think of bill o'reilly speaking wait he he did? >> i think he is nervous because he lost in the demo last week three nights in a row. >> jon: we know most of o'reilly's younger viewers are coming into the room to make sure their grandparents are still breathing. [ laughter ] i don't -- [laughter] [cheers and applause] i think it doesn't count once they put their hand on the chest, does that count? yeah, it's okay, we can go. [ laughter ] still, if cnn is hitting ratings gold with this, fox news will not be outspeculated. >> the most likely view in my view is the payne stewart narrow, something happened with the oxygen on board, everybody died.
11:06 pm
>> jon: that sounds likely but explain what would happen then with the transponders and, if you please, act it out with as little respect for the victim as possible. >> who shut the transponders? >> that could have been some of -- i'm choking. i'm choking. let's try go back. >> jon: all right. either he is car lusly play acting the real death of a real person and his tongue has gown rogue and tried to take him out before his tongue is forced to say something stranger. cnn is missing a larger story here. >> both pilots were muslims. it seemed to take a long time for them to begin to look in the backgrounds and whether they had a political radicalizations in the background. there's a good chance a substantial population of cabin are muslims as well. you have to go through and find the out who has political ties,
11:07 pm
extremist ties. >> i believe it's a 65% to 75% chance i'm correct did it not crash and it's going to be used in a future radical islamist terrorist movement. >> jon: yes, doesn't it seem suspicious to anybody that a plane originating in a muslim country would have so many muslim passenger and pilots? it's a little too convenient to hear the airlines say it there are muslims and muslim pie will thes flying every day without incident. well, i don't buy it. [ laughter ] you know what fox and cnn it's ged way to heated and weird. i'm going have to call mom. >> sometimes in the world of cable news there's a mismatch between the demand for new information about a story and the supply of new information that exists. our job is not to fill the air by telling bedtime stories. >> the we won't try to turn the lack of news in this very sad
11:08 pm
story into something that sounds like news but isn't. >> jon: you know sherman and mr. peabody are right. [laughter] [cheers and applause] an eloquent call to accountability. well, maybe they should have cced that to everybody in the building. >> it was clearly manipulated whether it be by the pilot or someone who commandeered the pilot. a runway cost been built or landed in a desert somewhere. >> i think it's a well funded hijack operation and it's sitting somewhere in the jungle. >> jon: interesting. so we're looking for people rich and evil enough top fund a high tech jungle plane hijackerring but too dumb to realize they could just buy their own (bleep) plane. but that doesn't mean --
11:09 pm
[laughter] they are against crowd sourcing this. >> get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think: tonight's question do you think this plane will ever be found? text a for yes and b for no. >> jon: because i'm lonely. and don't worry about it if you are wrong because there are no consequences for that at all ever. [ laughter ] we'll be right back.

[cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back to the show. before the break president barack obama was about to get good news. congress was going to allow him to appoint a preferred candidate to a high profile position. >> president obama set to make the pick for surgeon general. he intends to nominate vivek murthy for the job. >> jon: hold on there indian americans, you can have your ivy league doctor or your tech genius you cannot have both. [laughter] he seems evidently qualified. seems like smooth sailing for
11:13 pm
got ship murthy. >> the second concern i have along the same shrine about your comments about guns. >> jon: iceberg! someone said the word gun which means it's time for the new segment: america stands its ground. what were dr. murthy's comments about guns. >> in your tweets of october 16, 2012 tired of politicians squared of nra, throws some of the words. i would hope you would know that americans have a first amendment right to advocate the second amendment. >> jon: yes, americans have a first amendment right to advocate the second amendment and apparently you don't have a first amendment right to have a different opinion from that. everyone knows the first amendment only applies to saying positive things about the second amendment. that's all. it says you can have a gun unless you don't have anything positive to say. shut it down. in addition to that tweet murthy supports majority popular ideas like background checks and
11:14 pm
assault weapon bans in other words, stop him? >> rand paul and the nra have whipped up quite a frenzy. >> the surgeon general ought to be concerned about the heart disease, smoking, cancer. >> being against obesity, things that are bad for your health. [laughter] >> jon: you know, bullets -- [laughter] -- are not generally considered superfoods. [ laughter ] they are, as we have learned low in omega 3 fatty acids and relatively high in lead. but even if murthy was anti-gun he is just the surgeon general. he is the nation's official skol. all he would do is put a warning label on bullets. the republicans, the senate rule says you can't filibuster nominees anymore.

he needs a sim majority and he has more than enough democrats to do thank opposition from the nra has grown so intense it has placed democrats from conservative states several of whom up for reelection in a difficult spot. as many as ten dems are considering a vote against him. >> jon: i guess that will teach dr. murthy to make wild accusations about politicians being scared of nra. is nobody in america able to take a common sense approach to drugs -- guns? >> a fifth grader in ohio is suspended for three days after pointing his finger like a gun. the principal said students were warned about pretend gun play multiple times this year. [ laughter ] >> jon: i said common sense. come on, that's obviously a self defense finger gun. [ laughter ] not like he has one of them high capacity magazine finger guns. it's a regular old finger gun.
11:16 pm
why -- it's not an assault finger gun. [cheers and applause] [laughter] either i'm hungry or those look a lot like stacked doughnuts. real weapons are okay, great. completely imagery weapons weape intolerable. what about something in between there. >> a big toy manufacturer making weapons for girls. >> jon: toy weapons for girls. must have taken a long time to figure out how to take a boys weapon and adopt it for a girl. i see. okay, that makes more sense. tell me about the gentler more feminine weapons. this is grace's favorite toy the nerf rebelle heart breaker a sparkly and pink bow and arrow. some say teaching girls war games could be sending the wrong
