JON STEWART: Hey China, America Is AIG...We're Too Big To Fail!


Jon Stewart reflected on Chinese leader Hu Jintao’s trip to the U.S., to, er, check up on us.

“Now… imagine the guy you owe money to is a country. And the sum of money — is almost a trillion dollars….quick America turn off the lights, maybe they’ll think we’re not home!”

“Chill,” says Stewart. “We’re playing this just right. When a country owes you a billion dollars¬† — they’ve got a problem. When a country owes you a trillion dollars — you’ve got a problem.”

“We’re too big to fail, motherf*cker.¬† We’re AIG!”
