Now, now, there have beena lot of narratives...
there have been a lotof narratives coming out
of this week's DNC.And, uh, for help figuring out
the real story, we're joined now
by Senior PoliticalCorrespondents Jordan Klepper,
Hasan Minhaj, and Adam Lowitt,everybody!
(cheering and applause)
Thank you so much, gentlemen,for being here.
Uh, Jordan,you've been watching all week.
What's the best way to sum upthe Clinton campaign?
Trevor, let me put this in a way
Philadelphianscan identify with.
Hillary Clinton proved this week
that she isjust like Rocky Balboa.
Do you have, uh, Rocky in Africa?
Of course we have Rocky in Africa, Jordan.
We've had itfor, like, three years.
So, think about it.
Hillary and Rocky are both leftyscrappers who get no respect.
They both have an old guywho used to criticize them
but is now rightin their corner.
And now Hillary is goingto train hard, earn our support,
and prove she's the onewho can go the distance.
-(humming Rocky theme)-Jor-Jordan. Jordan.
Jordan. Jordan. Jordan.
You realize Rocky loses.
I never get pastthe training montage.
I just get so jazzed, I jump up,
do, like, 20 jumping jacks,and pass out.
All right. You know what,that was very unhelpful.
Uh, let's go to Hasan Minhajright now, everybody.
Uh, Hasan,what is your take on Hillary?
Trevor,I got to disagree with Jordan.
Hillary Clinton is not Rocky.
She's Rocky II. She got beatby the black guy last time,
and now she is ready forher second shot at the title.
Despite setbacks and the smearcampaign being run against her,
this time,she will beat the odds and win.
(humming Rocky theme)
Guys, guys, guys,guys, guys, stop!
Guys, stop! Stop!
Come on.Have some control.
Let's go to Adam Lowitt now.
Uh, Adam,thank you for joining us.
Hopefully, you can add somesubstance to this conversation.
Yeah, with pleasure.
Look, I'm sorry,this pandering is ridiculous.
Come on, crowbarring Hillary
into some dumb,old boxing movie narrative
just 'causewe're in Philadelphia?
You know what, Adam, I'm gladthat you see it this way.
So, how would you sum upHillary's campaign?
It's Rocky III.
Hillary is richand overconfident,
and she's gonna lose in an upsetto an angry bully
with weird hairwho everyone calls Mr. T.
I got it, it's Rocky IV.
Yeah, Rocky IV!
Donald Trump is a monsterbacked by Russia,
and he's embarrassing Americain front of the entire world!
-So, now... -Rocky IV!
-And now...-It's Rocky IV.
Perfect, and now Hillary Clintonis gonna pull America back
from the brink by trainingin those harsh conditions.
O-Okay, guys, you're not...
Yeah, yeah, pullingoff a huge victory
in front of the whole world!
(scat singing"Theme from Rocky")
(audience clapping rhythmically)
Jordan Klepper, Hasan Minhaj,Adam Lowitt, everyone!
Thank you, Philadelphia!
