Jon Stewart looked back at yesterday’s national Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day, wondering what could have inspired such massive cravings for a chicken sandwich. Well, the massive protest started by Mike Huckabee to support the right of the fast food franchise’s owner to state his views on gay marriage, which Stewart dubbed the “million mouth march,” resulted in the chain making record profits. Stewart agreed with the First Amendment argument, and even ripped into the mayors trying to ban the chain from their cities.
Stewart then turned to the mayors all across the country pledging to keep Chick-fil-A out of their cities, mocking them for pushing the kind of overreaching censorship conservatives always criticize them for. “Pretty sure you can’t outlaw a company with perfectly legal business practices because you find their CEO’s views repellant. Not sure which amendment covers that, but it’s probably in the top 1.”
