Jon Stewart ridiculed Democrat mayors Rahm Emanual of Chicago, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino, and San Francisco mayor Edwin Lee, for escalating a “typical culture war skirmish,” over Chick-fil-A’s support of traditional marriage into a national controversy.

After highlighting their anti- Chick-fil-A comments, Jon Stewart mocked the mayors for blocking free speech.

“Pretty sure you can’t outlaw a company with perfectly legal business practices because you find their CEO’s views repellant,” Stewart said. “Not sure which amendment covers that, but it’s probably in the top one.”
