In his segment Monday evening about the ongoing Secret Service prostitution scandal in Colombia, Daily Show host Jon Stewart focused on David Chaney, the agent forced into early retirement over his posting of a photo of Sarah Palin with a sexist comment while serving on her security detail.
Stewart took a keen interest in observing Chaney’s comment on the former Alaska governor, saying, “I was really checking her out, if you know what I mean?”
“Okay, first of all, we’re not really confused about what you mean, as to checking her out,” Stewart said. “You’re checking her out, ‘If you know what I mean’ is kind of a single entendre. Nobody here thinks she’s a library book and we’re confused.”
“Second, how the fuck does the Secret Service guy have a Facebook page where he posts pictures of himself guarding political figures? ‘Hey, check it out, it’s me, as the single trail agent on the standard V-line protection formation. The only vulnerability is from the right flank, if you know what I mean.'”
Stewart added: “What, are Secret Service guys on Foursquare too? Hey, just checking in, at the president’s previously undisclosed location, if you know what I mean.”

‘He’s empty’: Psychiatrist warns Trump is in a ‘psychotic-like state’
Dr. Lance Dodes warned that things were going to get worse under President Donald Trump in 2017. That's precisely what happened.
"Is that what we're seeing this week?" MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell ased the psychiatrist.
"Absolutely. Donald Trump, because he has a fundamental need to be all-powerful and all loved, can't stand challenges," Dr. Dodes said. "And the nature of democracy is that it challenges people. We have more than one opinion. So the more -- it was predictable once he got into a position where people would challenge him, there are two parties, he would become more unhinged.
I think Trump’s people sit around ‘thinking up new ways to be cruel’: Senator
On Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's "All In," Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) tore into the Trump administration for its treatment of migrant children, as yet more reports come in of children being denied basic services in squalid conditions, and as Trump considers ways to get around the federal consent decree placing limits on how long they can be detained.
"We already know from so many child specialists that detaining children in these kinds of facilities does irreparable damage to them," said Hirono. "There are alternatives to family detention this administration could care less about ... the only way to get around the consent agreement is by getting around it by proposing or having this rule, which will be immediately challenged. They want to detain families indefinitely, children indefinitely, held in situations that do them absolutely no good when there are alternatives."
Maddow: You have to watch what the lying White House does — and not what they say
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow opened her show with a quick assessment of her thoughts on the ridiculous that the president of the United States regurgitated into the mouths of his supporters Wednesday.
She began by noting that they don't do press briefings at the White House anymore; instead, they've turned to talking to the president directly as he enters or exits the building to go off on his campaign trips or vacations.
"Today the president held a long one of these," she said. "One of the ones where he tried to push everyone's buttons, the president is denouncing the prime minister of our allied Denmark. He's calling her nasty. That will get some headlines. The president attacked American Jews for a second straight day today, saying they have dual loyalty because they're Jews. Americans of other religions don't have that dual loyalty or his suspicions of dual loyalty, Jewish-Americans do, because of their religion."
