WATCH: Jon Stewart Mocks GOP Presidential Aspirants' Answers to Same-Sex Wedding Question


The 2016 campaign has barely begun and already reporters are asking the really tough question of likely candidates: "Would you attend a same-sex wedding?"

"If you can't handle these guys, what are you going to do when Putin invites you to a same-sex wedding?" the Daily Show host joked.

There's been a lot of movement on the issue since the last campaign, and the question has changed. Many Republicans, including declared candidate Marco Rubio, say they would, under some duress, attend the same-sex wedding of a loved one.

But not Rick Santorum. He has not budged. "Santorum does not want to attend the wedding, but he'll be there on the wedding night," Stewart said, a reference to naughty google entry for the word "Santorum."

And Ted Cruz does not have to worry about facing such a decision, since, as Stewart points out, "he has no friends or loved ones," and is therefore in no danger of receiving such an invitation.
