Chris Christie seems to have a fundamental misunderstanding of marriage equality. (2:21)

COMEDY CENTRAL

>> Jon: WELCOME TO "THE DAILY

SHOW" MY NAME IS JON STEWART.

THIS IS... THIS TONIGHT WILL BE

A GOOD EPISODE OF OUR PROGRAM.

HOW GOOD?

FORMER THREE-TERM WISCONSIN

SENATOR RUSS FEINGOLD GOOD.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

FEINGOLD, JERRY, FEINGOLD.

WE BEGIN TONIGHT IN NEW JERSEY

WHERE I WAS VERY PROUD LAST

FRIDAY TO SAY THAT THE STATE

LEGISLATURE, THE STATE WHERE I

GREW UP VOTED TO LEGALIZE GAY

MARRIAGE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

UNFORTUNATELY, LIKE MOST EVENTS

IN NEW JERSEY, IT WAS

IMMEDIATELY THROWN OFF COURSE BY

A LOUD ITALIAN GUY.

>> A BILL LEGALIZING SAME-SEX

MARRIAGE APPROVED BY THE NEW

JERSEY LEGISLATURE HAS BEEN

VETOED BY CHRISTIE.

>> I BELIEVE THAT THE

INSTITUTION OF MARRIAGE AS IT'S

TRADITIONALLY KNOWN IS BETWEEN

ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN AND THAT

IT SHOULD STAY THAT WAY IN NEW

JERSEY.

(BOOS).

>> Jon: IN N NEW JERSEY...

HEY, PIPE IT DOWN!

(LAUGHTER)

IN NEW JERSEY WE BELIEVE

MARRIAGE SHOULD BE AS IT ALWAYS

WAS INTENDED BETWEEN ONE

INDICTED ORANGE-FACED MAN AND A

WOMAN WITH HIGH BANGS AND DEAD

EYES.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

CHRIS CHRISTIE... HOW YOU DOING?

HOW YOU DOING?

NICE TO SEE YOU?

HOW YOU DOING?

CHRIS CHRISTIE SEEMS TO HAVE A

FUNDAMENTAL MISUNDERSTANDING OF

MARRIAGE EQUALITY.

SPECIFICALLY, THE EQUALITY PART.

IT'S SURPRISING SINCE HE, TOO,

IS A MEMBER OF A GROUP SOCIETY

DOES NOT ALWAYS GRANT A FULL

MEASURE OF RESPECT.

I'M REFERRING, OF COURSE, TO

CHRISTIE'S CHOICE TO LIVE OPENLY

AS AN OBESE AMERICAN.

(LAUGHTER)

I WONDER WHAT HIS POSITION WOULD

BE ON THIS MARRIAGE QUESTION IF

THE NATIONAL DISCUSSION WENT

THUSLY.

>> I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF FAT

MARRIAGE.

I DON'T THINK YOU CAN REDEFINE

MARRIAGE.

FAT MARRIAGE IS WRONG.

WE FOUGHT HARD AND PREVENTED

MASSACHUSETTS FROM BECOMING THE

LAS VEGAS OF FAT MARRIAGE.

>> NEW YORK IS A PLACE WITH LOTS

OF FATS BUT I'M NOT IN FAVOR OF

FAT MARRIAGE.

(LAUGHTER)

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Jon: I MEAN HONESTLY, IT

MAKES AS MUCH SENSE AS
