Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stomps Senator Ron Johnson's Johnson during the Benghazi hearing, but conservative pundits say she faked her anger. (4:40)

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

NATION, -- THANK YOU SO MUCH.

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

I HAVE TO TAKE A MINUTE RIGHT NOW TO TALK ABOUT THE BIG STORY TONIGHT: MY ANGER AND DISAPPOINTMENT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT'S BEEN FOUR MONTHS SINCE THE TERROR ATTACK ON OUR EMBASSY IN BENGHAZI, LIBYA.

AND EVERY DAY SINCE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ON FOX NEWS HAVE DEMANDED THAT THE AMERICAN

PEOPLE DEMAND ANSWERS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

WELL, YESTERDAY WE FINALLY HAD THEIR CHANCE TO HOLD HILLARY CLINTON'S FEET TO THE CAR ON FIRE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND AT HEARINGS IN THE SENATE AND THE HOUSE INTELLEGENCE COMMITTTEES, CONGRESSIONAL

REPUBLICANS PROVED DEFINITIVELY THAT THEY SUCK AT THEIR JOBS.

[ LAUGHTER ]

>> THE SENATORS AND THE CONGRESS PEOPLE WHO WERE INTERVIEWING HER DIDN'T DRILL DOWN ON THESE QUESTIONS.

>> THERE'S NO SEQUENTIAL FOLLOW-UPS, HALF OF THE MEMBERS ARE JUST MAKING SPEECHES.

>> THIS WAS TO BE IN THE EYES OF SO MANY PEOPLE THE BIG MOMENT, AND THESE CONGRESSIONAL

INTERROGATORS DID WHAT THEY SO OFTEN DO: THEY BLEW IT.

>> THE REPUBLICANS LOOKED LIKE WEENIES.

>> Stephen: YES, WEENIES!

[ LAUGHTER ]

PINK, PLUMP AND WITH JUST LITTLE BIT OF SPHINCTER.

[ LAUGHTER ]

GUYS, YOU KNOW I LOVE YOU, BUT IT WAS EMBARRASSING, ESPECIALLY WISCONSIN SENATOR RON JOHNSON.

JIM, ROLL THE FOOTAGE OF HILLARY STOMPING RON'S JOHNSON.

>> NO, AGAIN, WE WERE MISLED THAT THERE WERE SUPPOSEDLY PROTESTS AND THAT SOMETHING

SPRANG OUT OF THAT-- AN ASSAULT SPRANG OUT OF THAT-- AND THAT WAS EASILY ASCERTAINED THAT WAS

NOT THE FACT, AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE COULD HAVE KNOWN THAT WITHIN DAYS AND THEY DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

>> WITH ALL DUE RESPECT, THE FACT IS WE HAD FOUR DEAD AMERICANS.

WAS IT BECAUSE OF A PROTEST OR WAS IT BECAUSE OF GUYS OUT FOR A WALK ONE NIGHT WHO DECIDED THAT

THEY'D THEY GO KILL SOME AMERICANS?

WHAT DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT DOES IT MAKE?

IT IS FROM MY PERSPECTIVE LESS IMPORTANT TODAY LOOKING BACKWARDS AS TO WHY THESE

MILITANTS DECIDED THEY DID IT THAN TO FIND THEM AND BRING THEM TO JUSTICE, AND THEN MAYBE WE

WILL FIGURE OUT WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE MEANTIME.

>> OKAY, THANK YOU MADAME SECRETARY.

>> Stephen: "THANK YOU MADAME SECRETARY?"

[ LAUGHTER ]

SHE JUST SPANKED YOU, RON!

I DON'T UNDERSTAND.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

UNLESS "THANK YOU MADAM SECRETARY" YOUR SAFE WORD?

[ LAUGHTER ]

AND IT'S NOT JUST THAT SHE GOT EMOTIONAL, SLAPPED THEM AROUND, AND WALKED OUT WITH THEIR NUTS

IN HER ATTACHE CASE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

IT'S THAT THEY SAY THAT ANGER WAS ALL MADE UP.

>> IT WAS THEATRICS.

AGAIN, SHE DIDN'T WANT TO ANSWER THE QUESTION SO SHE MAKES A BIG SHOW OF IT.

>> SHE LOST HER COOL AT ONE POINT WHICH IS PART OF THE SCRIPT.

>> THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR FOUR MONTHS, SHE'S HAD A CHANCE TO REHEARSE.

>> THIS ANGER, THIS OUTRAGE, I CAN TELL YOU WAS NOT SPONTANEOUS.

>> Stephen: NOW DON'T GET ME WRONG, THESE GUYS KNOW SOMETHING ABOUT FAKING EMOTIONS-- THEY DO

IT EVERY DAY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

AND I RESPECT THEM FOR IT.

BUT IN THIS CASE I'M NOT BUYING FIRST IT MAKES THE REPUBLICANS LOOK WEAKER.

NOW THEY LOST TO SOMETHING THAT WASN'T EVEN REAL.

IF HILLARY COULD FAKE THAT KIND OF ANGER, THAT'S SAYING THAT EVERY WOMAN I'VE EVER ENRAGED

MIGHT HAVE BEEN FAKING IT.

I DON'T THINK SO, FELLAS.

I'VE INFURIATED MY SHARE OF THE LADIES OVER THE YEARS AND LET ME TELL YOU, I GET THEM THERE, OKAY?

[ LAUGHTER ]

THEY ALWAYS SEEM PRETTY WORKED UP.

I CAN TELL WHEN IT'S REAL, I MEAN, THEY'RE SCREAMING THE WHOLE TIME.

I'VE EVEN HAD NEIGHBORS COMPLAIN.

NOT TO BRAG, BUT I'VE TAKEN SOME WOMEN TO A PLACE THAT WASN'T EVEN HUMAN.

[ LAUGHTER ]

OKAY?

TWO, THREE TIMES A DAY-- WHEN I WAS YOUNGER.

OF COURSE.

[ LAUGHTER ]

NOW THAT I'M OLDER, I MOSTLY JUST GET YELLED AT ON MY BIRTHDAY.

[ LAUGHTER ]

[CHEERS AND APPLAUSE]

THANK YOU.

I DON'T EVEN UNDERSTAND YOUR APPLAUSE AND I LIKE IT.

[ LAUGHTER ]

ANYWAY, THE HEARINGS WERE A DEBACLE THAT LEFT UNANSWERED THE ONE QUESTION THEY WERE REALLY ABOUT.

IS THERE ANYTHING WE CAN USE TO STOP HILLARY IN 2016?
