The Daily Show Goes To Berkeley, With Predictable Results

Categories: Media

Correspondent (and former Marine) Rob Riggle of The Daily Show went to Berkeley to explore the Marine recruiting center controversy, disguised as a scarily accurate hippie throwback "to earn the trust of the locals." In classic, brilliant Daily Show style, Riggle basically points a camera at members of Code Pink and lets them bury themselves with their own absurd statements, leading to this satiric crescendo between Riggle and a Code Pinker:

Code Pinker: "Wars in general would stop if we didn't have weapons, just like violence in our streets would stop if we didn't have weapons."

Riggle: "So if we got rid of police we wouldn't have crime?"

Code Pinker: "Potentially."
