If The Daily Show is the Harlem Globetrotters, CNN would be the Washington Generals (Fox News is the team of evil corporate robots the Globetrotters played when they were on Gilligan's Island). So, be sure to whistle "Sweet Georgia Brown" as you watch this clip from last night's TDS:
I know what you're thinking: It's a good thing Ashleigh Banfield doesn't have a TV, because it would be awkward if she saw this. Well, whoops, it turns out she actually does own a TV and reacted to the segment on CNN this morning. From Mediaite:
"I was really in a rough way last night after my hero, Jon Stewart — my absolute hero, I never miss an episode of the Daily Show, I was a guest on his show, and he was so nice to me when I was there, and then what does he do?"
"Everyone is fair game on his show," [Zoraida] Sambolin said, "you know this."
"I need thicker skin," Banfield concluded, before shrugging it off and going ahead with the segment.
"You know what, if you thought you were going to tear us down, you got another thing coming, Jon Stewart!"
That sound you just heard? It was everyone Ashleigh Banfield knows blocking her number.
After the jump, you can watch Jon's interview with Ashleigh Banfield from way back in 2002.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.
