He was invited to pretend he was president and to make an address to the nation about an ongoing alien invasion which had already reduced the white house to a smouldering ruin. He was to inspire the populace to rise up against the alien invaders. The skit was mildly amusing but left me with the same uneasy feeling of being manipulated as did the propaganda movies about alien invasion. One of the following urls should take you to a video of the show, and the relevant part starts at 00:10:15 and goes on for 15 seconds. USA http://tinyurl.com/7h3obcg Canada http://tinyurl.com/7by6c7e Cain's fake address is notable for who says it, what it says, and the impression it may leave in viewers minds. The transcript is as follows. Citizens of earth, It was the spirit of humanity that built this planet. It is that same spirit of humanity that will allow us to defend ourselves against unknown enemies. It is that same spirit of humanity that will allow us to destroy the aliens. The skit is consistent with the view promoted by others such as Stephen Hawking that aliens are evil. Cain speaks calmly and seriously, and one can imagine the speech being used in the future to reinforce something like a forced disclosure statement by a real president. Since Cain is obviously black, the speech would resonate well subliminally in people's minds with the speech of a real black president. It is said that the Daily Show is a more trusted news source for many people than other so-called real news channels. I usually don't lump the show in with the powers-that-be, but this skit fits in with the agenda purportedly described by Werner von Braun, that the military-industrial complex would use a fake alien threat as a rationale for more military spending and control.
