Stewart: Obama’s changes on marriage equality isn’t ‘social policy,’ it’s ‘Zen Koan’
In a similar reaction to his buddy Stephen Colbert, Jon Stewart also had fun Tuesday evening looking over Vice President Joe Biden admitting that the sitcom Will & Grace shaped his view on marriage equality.
“Fictitious gays, fictitious gays, everybody loves fictitious gays,” a delighted Daily Show said.
Stewart, however, was not pleased with the White House trying to walk back Biden’s comments and claim that his position on marriage equality is the same as President Barack Obama’s.
“So with regards to gay marriage, the vice president’s new position is consistent with the president’s position, which has not changed…..and is also changing,” Stewart said. “That’s not a social policy, that’s a Zen Koan.”
