Jon Stewarts Blasts GOP Candidates Over Gay Marriage Answers (Video)

“If you can’t handle these questions, how are you going to handle Putin asking you to go to a gay wedding?” Daily Show host jokes

Jon Stewart went to town on the Republican candidates Tuesday for their array of answers, or non-answers, on gay marriage.

The Daily Show host spliced clips of reporters asking Governor Scott Walker, Governor John Kasich and Senator Ted Cruz if they would attend a same-sex wedding.

“If you can’t handle these questions, how are you going to handle Putin asking you to go to a gay wedding?” Stewart asked.

Borrowing from the infamous Hillary Clinton 3 a.m. phone call campaign ad, Stewart suggested the 2016 election will come down to who voters trust to pick up the phone at that time and “RSVP to a gay wedding.”

He then poked fun at Marco Rubio, who has said although he disagrees with gay marriage, he’d go to a loved one’s wedding.

“The reception’s probably going to be awesome,” Stewart joked. “I didn’t learn the entire Vogue dance for nothing.”

Stewart concluded with clips of GOP figures calling reporters asking about same-sex marriage a “gotcha question.”

“Marriage is an abstract principle that exists on a theoretical plane and has no practical impact on actual people…as God intended,” Stewart concluded sarcastically as a jab at the candidates.
