NATION-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

NATION, I'VE GOT SOMETHINGON MY MIND AND NOW I'M GOING

SMEAR IT ALL OVER YOURS.

THIS IS TIP OF THE HAT, WAGOF THE FINGER.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)FIRST UP ON T TO THE DUBS, I'M

HOOKED ON THE HBO SHOW "TRUEBLOOD" AND IT'S ALL THANKS TO

FOX NEWS ANCHOR SHEPARD SMITHWHO DROPPED A FEW SUBTLE HINTS

ABOUT HOW MUCH HE ENJOYS IT.

>> DO YOU WATCH THAT SHOWTRUE BLOOD?

>> SUNDAY IS EPISODE 2 OFTRUE BLOOD.

>> TRUE BLOOD IS BACK.

I'M TELLING YOU, DON'T DRINKTHE V COME ON, DON'T DRINK

THE V.

>> DON'T DRINK THE V, THANKYOU, MIKE, DON'T DRINK THE

V.

>> DO YOU NOT WATCH TRUE BLOOD,BECAUSE YOU CAN GET ALL

AMPED UP ON V AND DO ALL KINDSOF WEIRD THINGS.

>> Stephen: YEAH. ALL KINDS OFWEIRD THINGS LIKE THAT ONE

TIME SHEP GAVE OUT HISHBO GO PASSWORD AND THEN

DEMANDED PEOPLE WATCH TRUEBLOOD WHILE HOLDING A KNIFE

TO BRIT HUME'S THROAT.

WHICH IS WHY I AM SO SAD TOGIVE A WAG OF MY FINGER TO

"TRUE BLOOD" FOR MAKING MYBLOOD TRULY BOIL WITH LAST

WEEK'S EPISODE IN WHICH THEVAMPIRE SNUCK INTO A BENEFIT

FOR TED CRUZ IN ATRANSPARENT HOLLYWOOD ATTACK

ON REPUBLICANS.

>> THE SECOND I TOLD HER THAT'SWHERE MOMMY AND DADDY

WERE GOING, SHE HUNG UP.

>> LOOKS LIKE WE'RE GOING TOA GALA.

>> SECURITY'S GOING TO BETIGHT.

>> AND THEY ONLY INVITEDASSHOLES

WE CAN BE ASSHOLES

OF ALL THE HORRIBLE THINGS IHAVE SEEN IN THE LAST 100 YEARS

THIS COULD BE THE MOSTDISTURBING

>> OH MY GOD-- I'M AREPUBLI-[BLEEP].

>> Stephen: DID YOU HEARTHAT?

DID YOU HEAR THAT, A REPUBL-CWORD I CAN'T SAY.

WELL PLAYED HOLLYWOOD, THATIS THE MOST DEVASTATING

CRITIQUE OF A POLITICALIDEOLOGY SINCE KARL MARX

PUBLISHED "DAS KAPI-TAINT" ANDI'M NOT THE ONLY CONSERVATIVE

UPSET BY TRUE BLOOD'S BLEEDINGHEART INTO MOUTH AGENDA.

>> SUNDAY NIGHT'S EPISODE OFTRUE BLOOD SERIES WAS A

CONSERVATIVE BASHFEST.

BUT THE VULGARITY OF ATTACKSHAS MANY ASKING DID THE SHOW

GO TOO FAR?

>> FOLKS NEED TO UNDERSTANDTHAT TV IS ALL ABOUT

ATTITUDE IMPLANTATION, IT'SALL ABOUT CREATING FEELINGS

INSIDE OF YOU.

HERE IS THE THING, MOSTPEOPLE DON'T ACTUALLY KNOW

WHO TED CRUZ IS.

THEY TEND TO VOTE BASED ONTHE FEELINGS THAT THEY HAVE,

LARGELY IMPLANTED BY THEENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY.

>> Stephen: WELL SAID.

TV ENTERTAINMENT DRIVES OURPOLITICAL DISCOURSE.

REMEMBER NO ONE WAS TALKINGABOUT INCOME INEQUALITY

UNTIL THE DEBUT OF "TWOBROKE GIRLS"

BUT WE-- WE SHOULD NOT BESURPRISED AT ALL THAT

VAMPIRES ARE DEMOCRATS.

AFTER ALL, THEY SCREAM WHENTHEY SEE A CROSS.

(LAUGHTER)NEXT UP-- NEXT UP, FOLKS,

GIVE ME A SECOND HERE, IWANT TO MAKE SURE I GOT MY

PLASTIC TARP DOWN BECAUSETHE NEXT STORY MAKES ME SO

HAPPY I MIGHT START LEAKINGNEWS JUICE, JIM.

>> OBAMACARE SUFFERS PERHAPSITS BIGGEST SETBACK YET.

>> A FEDERAL APPEALS COURTRULING THE AFFORDABLE CARE

ACT AS WRITTEN ONLY ALLOWSINSURANCE SUBSIDIES IN

STATES THAT SET UP THEIR OWNEXCHANGES.

>> COVERAGE FOR MILLIONS OFAMERICANS ENROLLED UNDER

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S HEALTHCARE LAW MAY BE IN JEOPARDY.

>> BIG BLOW FOR OBAMACAREAND WE'RE ACCURATE IN

SAYING IT IS A HUGE BLOW FOROBAMACARE.

>> THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW ANEWS ORGANIZATION IS

TRUSTWORTHY.

THEY MAKE THE EXTRA EFFORTTO POINT OUT WHEN THEY'RE

BEING ACCURATE.

(LAUGHTER)AND FOLKS, THEY ARE, THIS

TIME.

OBAMACARE-- (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: MAKE NO MISTAKE,THEY ARE ACCURATE IN SAYING

THAT OBAMACARE IS DEAD.

NOW THE LAST TIME I DECLAREDOBAMACARE DEAD I DROPPED

BALLOONS AND THEN TWERKEDWITH THE GRIM REAPER.

SO FOLKS, THAT'S ALL BEENDONE.

BUT LIKE VOTING TO REPEALOBAMACARE, WE ARE GOING TO

DO IT AGAIN.

COME ON!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)>> Stephen: WHOOO!

♪♪ KUZ I'M HAPPY

♪(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: HE'S A GOOD GUY.

DEATH IS A GOOD GUY AND AHELL OF A DANCER.

AND THIS HAPPY NEWS BRINGSME TO THE TIP OF THE HAT TO

THE WASHINGTON D.C. COURT OFAPPEALS

YOU SEE, IN A 2-1 VOTE THECOURT THIS WEEK RULED THAT

RESIDENTS OF THE 36 STATESTHAT HAVE NOT SET UP THEIR

OWN OBAMACARE INSURANCEEXCHANGES CANNOT GET FEDERAL

HEALTH CARE SUBSIDIESBECAUSE THE EXACT WORDS OF

THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT SAYTHAT SUBSIDIES ARE AVAILABLE

TO PEOPLE WHO ARE, QUOTE,ENROLLED IN THROUGH AN

EXCHANGE ESTABLISHED BY THESTATE.

AND BECAUSE IT'S WRITTENEXACTLY THAT WAY THE COURT

RULED THAT SUBSIDIES AREONLY AVAILABLE ON

STATE-BASED EXCHANGES, NOTON THE HEALTH CARE.GOV

EXCHANGE AND THEY BASE IT ONTHE WELL ESTABLISHED

PRECEDENT, YOU FORGOT TO SAYSIMON SAYS.

(APPLAUSE)NATION, 5.6-- 5.6 MILLION

PEOPLE COULD NOW LOSE THEIRINSURANCE BECAUSE OF THIS

PHRASEOLOGY.

I BELIEVE THIS IS A TRIUMPHOF TYPO OVER INTENT.

THE DEMOCRATS WHO WROTE THISLAW SHOULD HAVE PROOFREAD IT

OR AT LEAST NOT HAVE SENT ITFROM THEIR iPHONE.

THIS RULING IS JUST THELATEST IN OUR NATION'S LONG

HISTORY OF LEGALLY BINDINGTYPOS.

WHO REQUEST FORGET THE BRIEF,DANGEROUS PERIOD WHEN

AMERICANS ONLY HAD THE RIGHTTO KEEP AND BEAR RAMS.

(LAUGHTER)BUT-- FOLKS AS CONSTITUTIONAL

ORIGINALISTS, ALLCONSERVATIVES BELIEVE THAT

WHEN YOU MAKE A TYPO, YOUHAVE TO STICK WITH IT I MEAN

WHY ELSE WOULD ANYONE NAMETHEIR CHILD REINCE PRIEBUS.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
