TOEIC Lesson 42 (Jon Stewart and The Daily Show) VIDEO Script, Questions and Answers:
John: Hey Al. Are you familiar with Jon Stewart and The Daily Show?
Al: Of course! Jon is my favourite fake news anchor and his show, The Daily Show, is fun to watch because he makes fun of so many well-known politicians and business people. And he usually has some famous TV and political guests on the show and asks them very acerbic and interesting questions.
John: Yeah, that’s right. His show recently featured President Obama and he asked him if he and the democrats were really the ones the American people had been waiting for or should Americans continue to wait.
And oh…, this past weekend Stewart held a rally on the Washington Mall near the US Capitol.
Al: Really? What kind of rally was it? Did anyone attended it?
John: It was called the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or fear. Over 200,000 people attended it.
Al: Wow! Was his message at the rally comical?
John: Of course there were some very funny parts but actually it also was a little bit serious because he said that Americans get things done every day but people in Washington don’t!
Al: No surprise there and he makes a good point! I’m going to have to watch the interview of Obama because I want to hear how Obama answered Jon’s question.
