7:17 am
switch. >> reporter: with the rocky fire down but not out, it's still a waiting game for the thousands forced to evacuate and wondering when they can go home. the disaponting answer came late wednesday. >> at this point the evacuation situation stays in effect. >> they're trying to keep us safe, but i want to go home. >> reporter: we expect to find out later this morning whether they'll reopen highway 20. that's the main road through the fire zone. that's a pretty good undication that the folks who have been out of their homes for nearly a week will be going back. the circus spectators in new hampshire were told to stay put before a huge storm blew the tent down. the collapse killed two people and injured dozens. they told the crowd to stay in their seats. moments later just before the tent fell they told everyone to go to their cars for shelter. bill cosby is under orders

8:04 am
show. you've attributed his rise in the poll to a temporary loss of sanity. what do you think this debate could clarify? >> i think there are a lot of issues. i think we really have to determine what are the best ways to counteract our foes around the world. do we need to be involved in every civil war, and has it made us more safe? i think frankly hillary's excursion and obama's excursion into libya made us less safe and made isis strongerment i think arming the allies of ice sis made isis stronger. there needs to be a debate about that because so many -- in fact many on both sides think it's always a good idea to send arms to everyone. we're now talking about with the iran agreement, to pacify saudi arabia, we need to send them more arms, also. i think there needs to be a voice of reason and there needs to be somebody promoting a rational foreign policy and i think sometimes both sides are a

8:06 am
>> yes. and i think what he's tapped into, though is that 490%90% of people are unhappy with washington. i never ran for office. i was a physician and never ran for politics. i was able to beat an establishment politician because i ran against the machine. i still intend to do so because 90% of people are unhappy. i think we need term limits. i'd wash the whole place out. the whole place needs to be clean swept and start all over again. i've met almost every leader on the stage in washington. there's no monopoly of knowledge up there. wu need new people. one of the things i'd propose is we need term limits send them all home. >> why is donald trump tapped into this rather than you according to the polls? >> he had a little bit of help. y'all covered him with about a billion dollars of news media. it's all your fault, charlie. >> oh i see.
8:07 am
>> no. the thing is for example, i've been talking about a flat tax where we eliminate the entire tax code to try to get american jobs to come home and american companies to come home. but i have really had a little trouble getting traction with getting the message out, and i don't blame anyone. the news is what the news is. but you have to admit that there's been an extraordinary amount of attention paid to one person, and i think anybody's numbers would rise with that amount of attention. so our job is to break through. our job tonight is the step up defend and maybe demolish some other bad ideas that are out there or point out that maybe there are some empty suits without ideas. >> who would that be? >> there's 15 to choose from. so we'll see tonight who that is. but i think it is good to draw distinctions. i'm a big believer -- i don't believe in hurling insults, but i'm a big believer in mixing it up. we ought to know the differences

8:38 am
really insightful satire. >> i don't know where to start so let's start with iraq. >> speaking truth to power. like putting the lepzns in a place where the regular media was not willing or courageous enough sometimes to put the lens, you know. and calling out the media itself. >> here's just what i wanted to tell you guys. >> yeah. >> stop. >> i remember when he did that "cross fire" interview, and i feel like that was a turning point. >> stop hurting america. >> okay. >> and come work for us because we, as the people -- >> how do you pay? >> not well. >> better than cnn, i'm sure. >> but you can sleep at fight. >> where everyone kind of stood back and said oh this guy's not just a comedian, you know. he's somebody you don't want to -- you know you don't want to fight that guy. >> i can't reconcile the brilliance and knowledge that you have and the intricacies of the market with the crazy bull [ bleep ] i see you do every

night. >> i think the oddest one was the jim cramer thing. that was just bizarre. >> i understand you want to make finance entertaining, but it's not a [ bleep ] game. >> i felt like his interviews did not have the tone of like i'm attacking you. it was often -- even with people that i wanted him to attack -- >> listen to me. here's all i want from you today. >> i kind of want him to go into the interview with bill o'reilly and, like, kick him in the [ bleep ]. >> i have one simple goal. >> yes. >> i want you to admit that there is such a thing as white privilege. that's all i want from you. >> i knew you were going to say that. >> that's all i want. that story. >> it was more about, like i'm trying to understand. >> this is our first show. since the tragedy in new york city. >> 9/11 was such a, you know world-changing event. >> they said to get back to work. and, uh there were no jobs available for a man in the fetal position under his desk crying.
8:40 am
>> i think what september 11th did on an emotional level is what happens at any time when the comedian lets the wall down. >> i wanted to tell you why i grieve. but why i don't despair. >> it's these kinds of moments that we take a step back and we realize he's really done a public service. >> we're closing early. no! no! i'm done. i'm heading out. >> we're going to miss everything about jon. his humanity his hilarity his incisiveness. >> adios, mother [ bleep ]! whoo! boom! >> a lot of people out there oh huh, but i'm telling you, it's -- it's really -- it's good to leave at the top of your game. >> the world is demonstrably worse than when i started! have i caused this?
8:41 am
>> the comfort in knowing that jon is behind the desk on "the daily show" is happening in the same way that carson or letterman or any of these guys and when they leave -- >> has my soul been for naught? >> it's kind of a reminder of change life goes on, and i'm closer to death. >> you know, he created something original. i think which is -- and he executed on it very well. and in some ways i look at him somewhat of an ombudsman which is a check on excesses and power and all of those things. and he did it with humor. >> and style of not attacking is so rare to be gentle and gracious in an interview. >> always with authenticity as well. an honest voice. often comedic but often poignant and powerful. >> he certainly will be missed. >> congratulations on a great run, jon stewart. coming up jen lancaster's

now 14 years later, lancaster is a "new york times" best-selling author of -- count them -- eight memoirs and four novels. fans have bought more than 1 million books. her new novel, "the best of enemies," deals with female friendships and rivalries. jen lancaster, good morning. >> good morning. >> so tell us about this book. >> this is a fun book. it's about two women who absolutely despise each other but keep getting put together in each other's lives. >> and why are they the best of enemies? >> they had been friends 20 years ago. and a series of events happened. they started to despise each other. and because of a mutual best friend, they can't get away from each other. >> i love that you said some of the inspiration was social media. people who have these pinterest-perfect lives became the source for you to write about. what do you see happening in culture that you sort of mirror in the books? >> i see these women, especially women in their 30s, who are working so hard to cultivate these pinterest-perfect lives

that i think they're actually not living their lives. this actually happened to me a few years ago. i was worked on this book. i was trying to live my life by martha stewart's -- by her dictates for a year. and i was working so hard to make my life look perfect that things were starting to fall through the cracks. and i think when you try to art direct your life you're not actually living. so i began to think about that. and i thought, what if i had a character who was trying to make her life seem to perfect that she was just using that to cover up what wasn't? and i took that character and i went with it. and i thought, who would be the polar opposite of that? who would be the polar opposite of a mommy blogger who was trying to display everything? and i thought, a foreign war correspondent, so that is her nemesis. >> who are you writing for? >> i write -- well i write for myself. i write to crack myself up. the fact that anybody else likes it is just a bonus. >> yeah.

>> i think there's something in your story, just the notion that you went from being laid off to a whole new career that so many people can really connect with. what did you learn in that journey, and what's your advice for other people who think i would love to write a book. i just don't know how. >> draw from your own experience. when i started writing, i didn't set out to be a writer. i was just an angry person. i had gone from being -- that's what it was. i was an executive and i had been laid off right after the dotcom era. because i had come up in the dotcom era, i thought i was really special because people were handing out paychecks and vp titles. this was, like 2000, 2001. when i was laid out, i thought a great job was just around the corner. when i marched into the unemployment office with my prada bag, i thought a job was just around the corner and it turns out it wasn't. so when i started to write about my frustrations on the internet, it turned out i was just an angry person with a lot to say. but there were a lot of other angry people with a lot to say
