Stephanopoulos: OMG Obama got two
Americans released from North Korea
even though he's so weak!

Karl: Obama had lunch with the
GOP but no deals were made!

Stephanopoulos: no!

Karl: the President is still defiant

Stephanopoulos: wow

Obama: I will not wait on immigration reform

Karl: but the GOP says if he acts
they will be so mad the GOP will
not act in the best interest of America

Stephanopoulos: wow that's really mad

Obama: I'll have a bourbon with
Mitch McConnell and frankly 
I may have one without him

Stephanopoulos: gosh

Karl: of course this happens
to all two-term Presidents

[ break ]

Raddatz: Obama is doubling
down on the war on ISIS

Raddatz: the U.S. is still training
Iraqi troops on how to shoot guns
and other stuff like that takes
10 years to learn how to do

Reporter: U.S. troops must fight 
there because the Iraqis are incompetent

McCain: Obama needs total authority
to make war anywhere anytime

Stephanopoulos: Darrell do you 
support more war in Iraq?

Issa: hell yeah

Stephanopoulos: oh really?

Issa: yes I recently visited the Iraqi
government and they are all assholes

Stephanopoulos: should 
Americans be in combat?

Issa: yes because there is a
Sunni – Shia divde in Iraq

Stephanopoulos: who knew?

Issa: it blew my mind

Stephanopoulos: what will happen
if Obama acts on immigration?

Issa: the GOP will burn down the Capitol

Stephanopoulos: my god

Issa: we need to keep the best
and brightest in America

Stephanopoulos: what has that 
got to do with Congress

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: this week in terrifying news
a cyberattack may destroy America!

Thomas: apparently after a cyber-attack
all daily life will end as we know it

Stephanopoulos: oh my

Thomas: the terrorists will shut off
your water and explode the
gas lines in your home

Stephanopoulos: jesus

Thomas: the Russians may
destroy your smart toilet

Stephanopoulos: that's a low blow

Stephanopoulos: Richard how soon
will be all be killed by cyber attacks?

Clarke: every nation has put malicious
code in everyone else's systems
so they can push the button when
the war starts

Stephanopoulos: why would they do that?

Clarke: to bring the enemy to
their knees dumbass

Stephanopoulos: I've read the whole
electrical grid could be destroyed –
how scared should be we be?

Langevin: you should be terrified –
half America will be without power
and will be forced to eat their pets

Stephanopoulos: that's horrible

Langevin: sorry that's the reality George

Clarke: wait until terrorists get
a hold of these viruses

Langevin: indeed – when ISIS learns
to code zombies will gnaw on
your children's bones

Stephanopoulos: well I'm scared

[ break ]

Stephanopoulos: the ACA has fought
off many attacks including in 2012
when the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare

Boehner: Obamcare should be
repealed and replaced with something
incredibly different like Romneycare

Moran: but now the Court is going
to take another whack at it due to a typo

Moran: the fate of the law and
the legacy of Obama and the
future of the planet is at stake
and will come down to one
vote on the court

Cohn: this case is an attempt to
repeal the law and take health
insurance away from millions 
of people due to a typo

Severino: it's not a typo –
it's the wording of the statute

Cohn: it's a typo because that
reading is totally inconsistent
with other parts of the law

Severino: that may be true but
no one likes this law except
people with health insurance

Stephanopoulos: does John Roberts
want to strike down the law?

Cohn: no because it would be
blatantly political and anyway 
Obamacare is working well

Severino: no it's a disaster

Cohn: nah ah

Severino: yah huh

Stephanopoulos: ok ok thanks for coming
