I doubt that any of them actually "got" it. Stone faces all around and not even a hint of laughter until he said "I trust that... both sides will work together on this issue, in the best interest of the American people, as you always do." Then there was laughter. Even the useless elected "officials" seem to realize that it is a joke that they will ever work together in the best interest of the American people. The rest of what he said did not seem to register.
