Jon Stewart enlisted Jason Jones, Wyatt Cenac, and John Oliver last night to help him figure out what cable news pundits mean when they say President Obama's post-election press conference
shows that he just "doesn't get it." Jones looked to the moment when Obama made his entrance and walked up to the podium: "Do you see 'it'? I didn't see 'it.' It's a pretty crucial moment, where he needs to show some fight. He shouldn't have strolled in, he should have rolled in
-- on those sneakers with the wheels and the blinking lights on them."
Wyatt agreed: "That's what Reagan did in '82. Why? Because he had 'it.'"
John Oliver pointed to history as well: "When Taft suffered a midterm defeat in 1911, did he drag his ass to the podium like a kid going to he dentist?"
Wyatt replied: "No, Taft was one 'it'-having motherfucker." Jason agreed: "Taft wasn't fat. Those were layers of 'it.'"
