Jon Stewart Laughs at the 2016 GOP Candidates' Pathetic Attempts to Respond to Gay Wedding Invites: VIDEO

Invitation

Scott Walker, Marco Rubio, John Kasich, and Ted Cruz have all been cornered by reporters this week and asked whether they would attend a gay wedding, and the stumbling and fumbling has caused an opportunity for Jon Stewart to have them by their tails.

"If you can't handle these questions, how are you going to handle....Putin...asking you to go to a gay wedding? This election is going to boil down to who do you trust... to pick up the phone at 3 am and RSVP to a gay wedding."

Jon Stewart Announces Date He's Leaving 'The Daily Show': VIDEO

The sad, terrible day is approaching when Jon Stewart will leave The Daily Show behind and he announced it last night.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Stewart offered an interview to The Guardian this week and went into more about the reasons he has decided to leave.

It's not satisfying anymore: “It’s not like I thought the show wasn’t working any more, or that I didn’t know how to do it. It was more, ‘Yup, it’s working. But I’m not getting the same satisfaction.’”

He wants to try something different: “[If I left the show,] I would do what I’m doing. Whether it’s standup, the show, books or films, I consider all this just different vehicles to continue a conversation about what it means to be a democratic nation, and to have it written into the constitution that all men are created equal – but to live with that for 100 years with slaves. How do those contradictions play themselves out? And how do we honestly assess our failings and move forward with integrity?”

He was sick of the format and wants to see his kids more: “Honestly, it was a combination of the limitations of my brain and a format that is geared towards following an increasingly redundant process, which is our political process. I was just thinking, ‘Are there other ways to skin this cat?’ And, beyond that, it would be nice to be home when my little elves get home from school, occasionally.”

He dreads the upcoming election: “I’d covered an election four times, and it didn’t appear that there was going to be anything wildly different about this one."

Jon Stewart is excited that Hillary Clinton has finally done something the Republicans "have been anticipating since 1978" but finds it "weird" that she "had to share her announcement with a guy from a gravel company."

Stewart also looks at the response from the Republican opposition including Rand Paul, Reince Preibus, Ted Cruz, and NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre, who called shat she'll bring "a permanent darkness of deceit and despair."

Jon Stewart Comes for Indiana, Memories Pizza, and 'Religious Liberty' Bills: VIDEO

Indiana_stewart

Jon Stewart finally took a look at the bigoted goings-on in Indiana last week and the news bytes featuring various wingnuts surrounding it, particularly those who compared gay loving couples to a hate group.

It's been a while since I've taken the SATs but I believe the formulation as you defend yourselves sas this. This couple (photo of lesbian couple Del Martin and Phyllis Lyon) is to Christian business as these folks (shows photo of KKK members) are to everyone else. 'I'm not discriminating. I have nothing against gay people. I'm just saying that to Christians, catering an elderly lesbian wedding is like making a Jew slow-dance with Hitler. That's all I'm saying.' Do you see how f--ked up that is???"

Finally, Stewart took a look at the motherlode of cash ($842,000+) Memories Pizza received in a GoFundMe campaign after they announced they would refuse to cater a gay wedding.

Daily Show senior correspondent Jordan Klepper went to Indiana and he's going to open a few businesses there - Recollections Pizza, and Deja Vu Meatballs. He's looking to cash in on the bigotry!
