(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: WELCOME TO THE

REPORT.

>> STEPHEN, STEPHEN,

STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

STEPHEN, STEPHEN, STEPHEN!

>> Stephen: THANK YOU FOR

JOINING US, EVERYBODY.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

ALL RIGHT, SIT DOWN.

NATION, TODAY MARKS THE 25th

DAY THAT NSA LEAKER EDWARD

SNOWDEN HAS BEEN HOLED UP IN

THE MOSCOW INTERNATIONAL

AIRPORT.

HE HAS BEEN THERE SO LONG HE

HAS FINISHED HIS SECOND

CINNABON.

(LAUGHTER)

AND NOW, FOLKS, WE MAY NEVER

GET OUR HANDS ON THIS

TRAITER BECAUSE HE HAS

OFFICIALLY PETITIONED RUSSIA

FOR ASYLUM.

OF COURSE RUSSIA WAS HIS

FALLBACK.

HE COULDN'T GET ASYLUM IN

ECUADOR OR DARTMOUTH.

(LAUGHTER)

BUT ONE SENATOR KNOWS HOW TO

PUT THE SCREWS TO THE RUSS

KEYES.

>> REPUBLICAN SENATOR

LINDSEY GRAHAM SAYS THE

UNITED STATES SHOULD

CONSIDER BOYCOTTING THE

GAMES IF RUSSIA GIVES THE

NSA LEAKER ASYLUM.

>> I LOVE THE OLYMPICS BUT I

HATE WHAT THE RUSSIAN

GOVERNMENT IS DOING

THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

IF THEY GIVE ASYLUM TO A

PERSON WHO I BELIEVE HAS

COMMITTED TREASON AGAINST

THE UNITED STATES, THAT'S

TAKING TO A NEW LEVEL.

IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME

WOULD YOU HAVE ALLOWED ADOLF

HITLER TO HOST THE OLYMPICS

IN GERMANY?

>> Stephen: YES, YES, GOOD

POINT.

IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME

AND STOP HITLER FROM DOING

ANYTHING--

(LAUGHTER)

>> IT WOULD SURELY BE

HOSTING THE 1936 BERLIN

GAMES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

NO, THAT IS WITHOUT QUESTION

MY NUMBER ONE HITLER RELATED

TIME TRAVEL FANTASY.

IN FACT, FOLKS, I WROTE A

SPECULATIVE FICTION NOVEL ON

THIS VERY SUBJECT ENTITLED

OPERATION JAVELIN.

IN WHICH A TIME

TRAVELINGEOUSIE OWENS NOW

TRAINED AS A SNIPER.

GOES BACK TO THE CRITICAL

MOMENT WHERE HITLER IS ABOUT

TO SIGN HIS CONTRACT WITH

THE OLYMPIC COMMITTEE,

RAISES HIS LIFE EL AND

SHOOTS THE PEN RIGHT OUT OF

HITLER'S HAND.

NOW OBVIOUSLY IN THE BOOK

HITLER GOES ON TO STILL DO

THE OTHER STUFF BUT--

(LAUGHTER)

>> BUT HE NEVER GETS OVER

THE STING OF SEEING THE

OLYMPIC ITS MOVE TO

BALTIMORE.

THAT'S JUSTICE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

POINT IS-- THE POINT IS

RUSSIA TURNED OVER
