we were talking aboutSenator Elizabeth Warren,
and she had been silenced byMajority Leader Mitch McConnell
for violating Senate Rule 19:impugning the character
of a fellow senator.
Americans lost their minds.
They were like, "Have youever seen anything so crazy
on the floor of the senate?!"
To which South Africa said,"Hold my beer."
That... that was todayin the South African parliament,
where our president had to givehis State of the Union address.
And it's safe to saythat the union is very strong.
Uh, so the guys in red--that's the opposition party--
they were basically pullinga Senator Warren
and trying to disruptthe proceedings Africa style.
The security guards came in,
those guys wearingthe white shirts,
they came in to stop them,a fight broke out.
And I was thinking,you guys should send
Senator Mitch McConnellto South Africa's parliament.
That's what you should do.Yeah, see how he copes
in that world,interrupting people.
In the middle of his speechhe'd be like,
"Uh, another thing,with Rule 19..."
-it's just, like, bop!-(laughter)
