In the opening segment of Thursday night's episode, Stewart shined a light on the current US debate on how, and from what sources politicians receive money to fund their political causes. The issue arose after a week of scathing criticism against Democratic candidate Hilary Clinton and the foreign donations the Clinton Foundation received during her time as US secretary of state.
Stewart juxtaposed the recent row against Hillary Clinton and the "hypocritical acceptance of domestic campaign money" given to Republican politicians.
