Stephen questions Laura Ingraham about the hackneyed racial stereotypes President Obama makes in his diary. (5:56)

MY GUEST TONIGHT IS A NEW

COMMENTATOR ON FOX.

TOGETHER THERE'S NO TELLING HOW

MUCH GOLD WE'LL GET YOU TO BUY.

PLEASE WELCOME LAURA INGRAM.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU.

HEY, LAURA, THANKS SO MUCH FOR

COMING ON.

IT IS SO NICE TO HAVE A FELLOW

CONSERVATIVE ON ONCE IN A WHILE.

>> A FELLOW DARTMOUTH ALUM.

>> Stephen: ABSOLUTELY.

I MISS OUR DAYS BACK ON CAMPUS.

>> I DON'T KISS AND TELL,

STEPHEN.

I WON'T GO THERE.

>> Stephen: I DO, AND IT WAS

MORE THAN KISSING.

>> WHEN YOU WERE HEAD OF THE

CHEERLEADING SQUAD, YOU DID

THINGS WITH POMPOMS.

>> BECAUSE I'M FLEXIBLE.

>> I REMEMBER.

>> Stephen: DO THE REPUBLICANS

TAKE CONGRESS BACK IN NOVEMBER?

>> IF ANYONE CAN SCREW IT UP,

IT'S THE REPUBLICANS.

IT COULD MEAN A LOT OF THE

TOWERING FIGURES OF THE

DEMOCRATIC PARTY ARE OUT.

>> Stephen: DOES THAT WORRY

YOU AT ALL BECAUSE AS MUCH AS I

WANT TO SEE REPUBLICANS ENACT

THEIR AGENDA.

>> YEAH.

>> Stephen: AND FIND OUT WHAT

IT IS...

[LAUGHTER]

THESE LAST TWO YEARS HAVE BEEN

GREAT FOR PEOPLE LIKE YOU AND

ME.

BEING IN OPPOSITION, I MEAN,

CHA-CHING.

MY RATINGS HAVE NEVER BEEN

BETTER.

AND I'M GUESSING YOU'RE

COMPLAINING ALL THE WAY TO THE

BANK.

>> THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION HAS

BEEN REALLY BAD FOR THE ECONOMY,

BUT IT'S BEEN GREAT FOR TALK

RADIO, WHICH IS MY BUSINESS.

FOX NEWS, AND, OF COURSE, THE

MASTER COLBERT.

THESE ARE JOBS SAVED AND

CREATED, YOURS AND MINE.

>> Stephen: EXACTLY.

LET'S TALK ABOUT THE REAL

SCANDAL.

SPEAKING OF CHA-CHING, YOU HAVE

THE NUMBER-ONE "NEW YORK TIMES"

BESTSELLING BOOK, IT'S CALLED

"THE OBAMA DIARIES."

OKAY.

NOW, THESE ARE DIARIES THAT FELL

INTO YOUR POSSESSION WRITTEN BY

BARACK OBAMA?

>> YEAH, YEAH.

>> Stephen: AND FOR SOME

REASON ALSO WRITTEN BY MICHELLE

AND JOE BIDEN.

>> VLADIMIR PUTIN.

>> Stephen: BECAUSE I GUESS AS

SOCIALISTS THE DIARY BELONGS TO

EVERYONE.

>> THIS IS THE PROPERTY OF THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE, STEPHEN.

WE PAID FOR IT.

WE HAVE TO ENJOY IT.

STEVE

>> Stephen: I GOT IT.

THERE ARE SOME STARTLING THINGS

IN THIS BOOK.

LET ME READ SOME THINGS.

THEY'RE SHOCKING.

OKAY.

THIS IS ON PAGE FOUR.

RIGHT OFF THE BAT SHOCKING

STUFF.

HELL, YES, THIS IS OBAMA

WRITING, IT'S THE FIRST TIME

WE'RE PROUD TO BE AMERICANS.

THIS IS ON INAUGURATION DAY.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THOSE PEOPLE

ACTUALLY VOTED FOR ME.

ADD A FEW GOOFY ICONIC POSTERS

AND HOPE AND CHANGE AND I'M THE

F-ING PRESIDENT.

IT'S THE ERA OF OBAMA THE

BEAUTIFUL.

WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT HIS

PRIVATE MUSINGS WOULD MATCH UP

WITH THE NARRATIVE THE RIGHT IS

TRYING TO PUSH.

>> WE'RE TOTALLY RIGHT.

AS USUAL, CONSERVATIVES ARE

RIGHT ABOUT HOW THESE THINGS ARE

CRAFTED, HOW THESE THINGS ARE

THOUGHT ACTED.

AND IT'S BEEN MASTERFUL.

HE WENT FROM BASICALLY BEING A

COMMUNITY LEAFLETER TO A FEW

SHORT STINTS IN THE STATE SENATE

AND THE U.S. SENATE TO RUNNING

THE BIGGEST ECONOMY OF THE

WORLD.

YOU DON'T GET THERE BECAUSE

YOU'RE DUMB.

I NEVER THOUGHT HE'S DUMB.

>> Stephen: I DON'T KNOW.

I READ A FAIR AMOUNT OF THIS

BOOK, AND I'VE GOT TO TELL YOU,

I READ A FAIR AMOUNT OF THIS

BOOK, AND I KNOW HE'S NOT

SUPPOSED TO BE DUMB, BUT THIS

WRITING IS TERRIBLE.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

IT IS THE MOST... IT IS THE MOST

BANAL TURNS OF PHRASE.

LISTEN TO WHAT HE SAYINGS ABOUT

HIS WIFE.

OBAMA WRITES ABOUT MICHELLE'S

DAILY FOOD INTAKE.

HE SAYS THAT MICHELLE'S LUNCH

WAS BABY BACK RIBS, AFTERNOON

SNACK MORE RIBS, BEDTIME SNACK,

THE LAST THREE RIBS.

>> YEAH.

>> Stephen: I THOUGHT IT WAS

SUPPOSED TO BE A POST-RACIAL

AMERICA.

OBAMA IS MAKING THE MOST

HIDEOUS, HACKNEYED RACIAL

STEREOTYPES IN HERE.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> WHAT I THINK HE'S ACTUALLY

DOING, I THINK...

>> Stephen: IT'S SHOCKING.

BUY THE BOOK.

BUY THE BOOK JUST TO FIND OUT

WHAT THIS GUY THINKS LIKE.

>> WHEN YOU CALL ME ICHABOD

CRANE, A WIDOW BANSHEE...

>> Stephen: ICHABOD CRANE'S

BANSHEE WIDOW.

THAT IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL.

BANSHEE?

>> Stephen: A BANSHEE?

>> I THINK NATIVE AMERICANS...

STEEP TEA PARTY THAT'S VERY

POSITIVE.

ICHABOD CRANE IS THE HERO OF THE

STORY.

AND BANSHEE JUST WARNS PEOPLE

WHEN A LOVED ONE MIGHT BE DYING.

THEY SCREAM IN THE GRAVEYARD.

>> I THINK THERE ARE OVERTONES

TO, THAT BUT I'M OVER IT.

[LAUGHTER]

>> Stephen: THIS IS THE MOST

SHOCKING THING.

>> WE'RE HAVING A MOMENT.

>> Stephen: YOU AND I?

>> DARTMOUTH.

>> Stephen: YOU HAD A MOMENT.

JOE BIDEN IN THE BIARY, THE

BIDEN DIARY, JOE BIDEN SAYS HE

SAW YOU AND HE WANTED TO KISS

YOU.

>> HE APPROACHED ME AT GEORGE

WILL'S ANNUAL BASEBALL PARTY.

HE GRABBED ME BY THE SHOULDER

AND SAID, GOD'S ON TRUTH,

INGRAM, YOUR MY FAVORITE ONE OF

ALL THOSE RIGHT-WINGERS, GOD'S

ONEST TRUTH.

HE WAS LOOK LOOK AT MY EYE.

IS THERE A SECRET SERVICE AGENT

AROUND HERE?

WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE.

IT WAS HILARIOUS.

>> Stephen: HE'S THE VICE

PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.

SPEAKING FOR ME, I'D GO SECOND

BASE.

WHAT ABOUT YOU?

COME ON!

>> I DON'T WANT TO REVEAL

ANYTHING MORE.

I THINK THE PEOPLE SHOULD READ

IT FOR THEMSELVES.

THEY SHOULD FIGURE OUT WHAT

CHEMISTRY WAS THERE.

THERE WAS A MOMENT.

>> Stephen: ANYWAY, BUY THE

BOOK.

IT'S CALLED THE OBAMA DIARIES.

IT'S THE NUMBER-ONE BESTSELLER.

IT IS FULL OF TALES OF HORROR

AND YOU KNOW HORROR BECAUSE YOU

DATED KEITH OWNERMAN FOR A

WHILE, DIDN'T YOU?

LAURA, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR

JOINING ME.

THE BOOK IS "THE
