President Obama made a special, full-length appearance on The Daily Show to promote the Iran nuclear deal — but first, he had an announcement to make to Jon Stewart: “I can’t believe that you’re leaving before me! In fact, I’m issuing a new executive order — that Jon Stewart cannot leave the show.”

Obama also discussed how he has adapted to the challenges posed by the modern media environment — and how he has viewed them as an opportunity to explain things in depth, and not just for the old nightly news sound-bites.

As the two of them discussed the complexities of making progress in government, Obama laid down a marker. “I can say this unequivocally: The VA is better now than when I came into office Government works better now than when I came into office. The economy is better now than when I came into office.” But, he said, it’s still not goo enough for him.

Larry and the panel also discussed Bill Cosby’s newly revealed deposition from ten years ago.
