6 November 16th, 2012 The Scandal Of Ex-CIA Director David Petraeus: “General’s Hospital” with Stephen Colbert & Susan Lucci!


In a hilarious satire last night on Comedy Central’s Colbert Report, host Stephen Colbert compared the latest Washington D.C. sex scandal involving former CIA Director, David Petraeus to a soap calling the entire lurid story the latest steamy episode of “General’s Hospital”!

After illustrating all the “characters” in Petraeus’s sex saga and saying it’s time to move on from it, all of a sudden All My Children’s Susan Lucci walked out on to the stage and revealed that, “General Petraeus has developed amnesia, and cant remember that he’s pregnant… by his own evil twin… who’s in a coma… and is my lover.”

And there is much more hilarity to this segment between Lucci and Colbert, especially when Susan slaps him from afar saying she has telekinesis, just like General Petraeus!

Watch it after the jump and let us know what you thought of La Lucci, and how General Petraeus’ scandal is very much like a convoluted storyline on of our favorite soaps!

    I’m not surprised. I think the whole Petraeus thing is beyond soapy. My hubby said he’ll never make fun of my soaps anymore after this crazy story.


  3. Christine says:

    My husband cannot get enough of this show as well as The Daily Show, but I did not see this one. Thanks for sharing, Michael.

    I always felt that the name “Petraeus” sounded like “betray us.” Ever since he was put in charge and his name became household, I have thought “betray us.” I suppose it is fitting that he is now part of [yet another] stupid sex scandal.


  4. Mary Fergen says:

    This was laugh-out-loud funny! Susan has a great sense of humor and it was good to see her sharing it!


  5. Rodd says:

    Very funny!…and sooo true. :0)


  6. Troy Turner says:

    Loved it. The fact that it was done with a tongue in each cheek makes it even better. But it also helps to prove the point that the soap is an American treasure that MUST be preserved…
