Oh, welcome back.Thank you very much.
Now, if you listento conservatives
it seems likeall that stands between us
and handing ISISits own ass is...
um, is, like,three little words.
No, no, no, no, no.
It wasn't that.Although that was awesome.
Uh, it was this.
Radical Islamic terrorism!
There we go.
See, the right contendsthat since Obama
won't say"radical Islamic terrorism"
he's somehow soft on terror.
To them, Obama is the closed-offone in the relationship
who won't say the wordsthey need to hear,
'cause... I don't even knowwhat we are right now, Obama.
Mm-hmm. POTUS, what do youhave to say for yourself?
Not once hasan adviser of mine said,
"Man, if we reallyuse that phrase
we're gonna turn this wholething around." Not once.
There's no magicto the phrase "radical Islam".
But anything could be magical,Obama, if you...
Thank you very much.Thank you.
All right. But then...
That had nothingto do with anything.
But this is a big debate.
Why won't Obama usethis specific language?
And here with moreon this word war on terror
is our resident egghead andlanguage expert, Felonious Monk.
All right. Now...
Felonious,you're a master of words.
How important is itfor the president
to use the words"radical Islamic terrorism"?
Brother Larry,does the winsomeness
of a lark's area changethe splendor its avian plumage?
Is it not the same with thesematters of human strife?
Does it matter orally,
or are all things the same,
no matter the tenor?
In other words, Brother Larry,what can the ears say?
For they have no mouthwith which to opine.
Oh, oh, okay, so you're saying
his wordsaren't important, right?
I mean, Obama's still fightingthe war on terror, right?
Well, you are bothwholly unerring
and hopelessly astray.
The lexicon matters little when,in a situation such as this,
desideratum is key.
Of course, right.Desideratum?
Right, right, I get it-- intent.
I just wanted to clear that upfor the audience.
(scoffs)Desideratum, you guys.
How have... you not heard that?Come on.
-Listen, words are important,Brother Larry, yes. -Yes.
Though they are but windowsinto the domicile,
and that homeis built upon an idea,
And-and for that-that fetalpostulation to withstand
sustained incursionfrom nature's savagery,
that concept... that foundation
must be unyielding.
I just said that to someoneat the barbershop the other day.
Well, nonetheless, PresidentObama, in his attempt
to remain respectfully roostedabove the maelstrom of bile
belched forth by the likesof that hirsute titan
of the Teutonic tradition,
one Donald Jiberius Trump...
elects to utilize decorum,to not regress
into the fetid fever swampsof ad hoc animus
against Islam,which ISIS then leverages
to attract fresh janissariesand flunkies.
Oh. Oh, okay.So, you're saying
Obama's trying to bean adult about this
so that he doesn'tvilify Muslims?
Verily, sir, verily.
Really? That's right?
-(cheering, applause)-I got it right. Yeah!
Ha, ha! Um, all right, now--
despite, uh, getting Osama
and the advancesmade against ISIS,
Obama's criticsstill think he's weak on terror.
I mean, two out of fiveRepublicans
think Obama is a Muslim.So, is it hopeless?
Oh, of course not.But Obama's perspicacity
may be ipso factoa mendacious canard,
for the verbiage we useto describe something
can change our opinions of it.
Yeah...Can you give me an example?
Well, as you saidto the chief executive
of these United States, the mostpotently powerful potentate
in perhapsthe known macro cosmos,
Larry, one can bea familiar or compatriot,
or one can be most emphatically
and explicitly my brethrenof sub-Saharan succession.
(cheering and applause)
what did you just call me?
Oh, I saidyou're my (bleep), yo.
I... That's what I thought.Okay.
That part I understood.
Felonious Munk, everybody!We'll be right back!
-See, I got that...-(cheering and applause)
