"Daily Show" host Jon Stewart appears to have a new hobby: tearing apart Mike Huckabee's hypocrisy.
When the former Arkansas governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate was on the show last month, Stewart went after him for attacking Beyonce's music but performing with Ted Nugent.
Now Stewart's tearing apart Huckabee for the bizarre explanation he gave for opposing gay marriage. On Sunday, Huckabee said he can't evolve on the issue because it's a biblical matter.
"I can't just 'change' with the 'times' if it means deviating from 'biblical law,'" Stewart said (complete with the air quotes) in summing up Huckabee's opposition to same-sex marriage. Then he pointed out a few other pieces of "biblical law," at least two of which might not be as important to Huckabee.
"It's why Huckabee never mixes fabric in his clothes or trims his beard or sleeps with another man's slave," Stewart said. "It would be wrong."
Huckabee also declared that asking him to accept gay marriage would be like "asking somebody who's Jewish to start serving bacon-wrapped shrimp in their deli."
Stewart said that analogy "makes no fucking sense."
“No one is forcing you to get metaphorically married to the biblical abomination that is this bacon-wrapped shrimp," Stewart said.
And that led to one of the most unforgettable "Daily Show" interviews yet.
