You like that? Wow. That's nice, man. 7:41. This is how we roll at "good morning america." Yeah. The presidential candidates not the only ones duking it out this week. "The daily show's" jon stewart and fox news' bill o'reilly, getting ready for a showdown. This saturday, half of all proceeds go to charity. It's called the rumble in the auditorium. What a great day to have you. What did you think of the debate last night? Here's what I thought about the debate last night. And I say this in all respect. As americans, I think we can all be very satisfied in knowing what happens in this election, we're going to have an incredibly good-looking president. That was some beefcake up there last night. The two of them. And when they take this into the swimsuit competition. There's not a country in the world, talk about -- put those two up against what? Merkel? Come on. It's a slam-dunk. Absolutely. Not only are they good-looking, but they're pretty smart. They're very smart. I'm sure president obama realizes, preseason's over. Time to -- I should probably familiarize myself with my presidency. And learn some of the various numbers and things that go along with it. Yeah. He had -- I thought he had a very difficult night. I'm concerned that he may not realize this. He may walk away. Was that a take on his body language? That he had other things to do? It wasn't so much as the body language as the mouth language. I used to think the pauses he was trying to think of smaller words for the little brains to figure out what he was saying. This time, I think the pauses were, I like food. He's thinking, my children are nice. He didn't seem present in the same way. Right. All right. What's the takeaway for you, as we gear up for the rumble in the air-conditioned auditorium? I'm going to use the same strategy that obama took. It's the rope-a-dope. But instead of letting your opponent punch himself out, you get beat up. Right. It's a great strategy. Listen, o'reilly is 6'5", 250. It's like debating a yeti. You know? I just need to stay away from one of his paws. If he gets a paw on me, I'm done. It's over. Yeah. I don't have that. So, I've got to do -- I train "rocky" style. You're small, though. You're quick. You had to get that in there. You had to get it in there? Small. Compact. Yeah. A lot of people would say, you know, good gravity. Good balance. But small is also an adjective you can use. Just one. Sure. You called him a yeti. He needs to defend himself. People on tv don't realize, people are small. Regis philbin, people don't know this. 11 inches tall. The angles that people do. I'm a man. I'm a full-grown -- when I walk down the street, people don't go, oh, my god. How does that guy get juice? I'm going after him. When I'm done with o'reilly, he'll convert to judaism. This guy's going down. This was his idea? This was his idea. I got a call from him one day. Just a phone -- my phone wasn't even plugged in. It just rings. That guy's magic. Stewy, o'reilly, debate. Not a lot of choice in the matter. Listen, I'm a small, quick man. He's on your show tonight. He's on tonight. To promote it. And 14 times you have been on each other's shows. Is that true? You have the internet. Yes. I have the internet. And google. I googled last night. We did some research. We have a little sampling of your magic together. Let's take a little look. Let's do this. Your respect grows for me in leaps and bounds. You're like the grich when he realizes they don't need presents. Your heart grows. You love me because you know we come from -- we're the same people. You want this date to go on forever. So, despite the differences -- I didn't realize the sexual Yeah. That's the most disturbing part about that. I dare say -- a little something-something going on. Could it be a mutual respect? I love talking to the guy. He's smart. He's funny. It always strikes me as bizarre the idea that the people you disagree with you, you'd should not ever engage with. I have people in my family that make that guy look like che vergara. I love them. It's not anything like that. I think he comes by his views honestly. I disagree with him. I will shut him down. He will weep, most likely like a child. But that's not the important part. The important part is we're going to have fun. A good conversation. Jim lehrer is going to moderate. It will be wild. Obviously, can get a -- i need to go, too. I don't -- I need to go, too. You're very -- I'm busy. You're incredibly busy. Yes. You have another event you wanted to talkout. The night of too many stars. Raises money for autism education programs. Everyone, this is for the families to support them for all they have to go through. OCTOBER 21st. Tonight, bill o'reilly.
