Watch: Jon Stewart Mocks 'F**ked Up' Right-Wingers Trying to Justify Indiana Law

"I didn't know it was illegal to practice religion in Indiana," Jon Stewart jokingly said on last night's Daily Show, before blasting the "religious freedom law" allowing discrimination against gays and lesbians that was passed in the state last week. After the intense backlash, Gov. Mike Pence predictably backpeddled. But that didn't stop an army of right-wingers from going on TV and saying terrible things.


Stewart mocked all the usual suspects, like Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, for defending an indefensible law.
