After a media storm over allegedly secret meetings at the White House, Jon Stewart admits that President Obama was probably trying to influence him and also call him out on being an asshole. But the “Daily Show” host points out that there was nothing “secret” about his presidential summonings, seeing as they were logged, and Stewart got to tell his mother, who in turn told all her (somewhat unimpressed) friends.

Stewart, however, did reveal a meeting he was told he could never speak about (until a journalist broke the story Wednesday): It wasn’t with the president of America, but rather the president of Fox News. If you’re wondering how these meetings went down, you can watch the re-enactments the comedian offered up in the clip below.
