Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi hijacks Gov. Rick Scott's press conference

UPDATE: Click here to see the Daily Show segment that aired Thurs., Feb. 2, 2012.

UPDATED 1x below.

Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi interrupted a press conference [Wednesday] by Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) to ask him to prove to the state taxpayers that he’s not on drugs by peeing in a cup.

“You benefit from hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars every year, so would you be willing to pee into this cup to prove to Florida taxpayers that you’re not on drugs, that you’re not using that money for drugs?” Mandvi asked.

Scott replied that he’s “done it plenty of times.”

Mandvi then tried to pass a cup forward: “Would you pass this forward to the governor? We can all turn around, it’s fine.”
