If you didn’t watch all of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s testimony before the U.S. Senate committee that asked hours upon hours of questions about Benghazi recently, then you may have glossed over a moment in which U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) interrogated Clinton about a State Department trip that spent $100,000 sending comedians to India.
Benghazi is located on the coast of Libya in North Africa. A continent away from India.
But Paul’s questioning of “Make Chai Not War,” the January 2012 stand-up tour of India sponsored by the U.S. State Department, hit home with Hari Kondabolu, because Kondabolu was one of the comedians on that trip. Did the federal government spend $100,000 to send three comedians to India? Was it worth it? What does it have to do with a terrorist attack in Libya?
Kondabolu, a writer on FX’s Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, responded with a monologue on Thursday night’s show.
