Jon Stewart Mocks GOP Candidates by Singing Eminem Tunes

Mike Huckabee might not appreciate Stewart's version of "My Name Is."
A still from Tuesday's 'Daily Show.'

Jon Stewart had a lot on his mind about those running for the Republican 2016 nomination, but he chose to let a certain rapper speak for him. 

On Tuesday's Daily Show, Stewart took aim at several candidates' recently announced campaigns, including that of former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina. Stewart showed footage of Fiorina bickering with Katie Couric about questions that Fiorina felt Couric would not have asked to a male candidate.

"How about this, would you call a man 'Katie'?" Stewart suggested Fiorina might ask Couric.

The host, who donned a fake, patriotic mustache for the bit, played footage of Ben Carson's announcement, which involved a choir singing Eminem's "Lose Yourself." Stewart then took it upon himself to sing a few bars of the Oscar-winning tune.

Next, Stewart showed Mike Huckabee's speech, with Huckabee pointing out that he owns a gun but has never murdered anyone with it. 

"That may be the lowest bar a candidate has ever set for his presidential qualifications," Stewart quipped.

Finally, with images of the candidates' faces showing on the screen, Stewart rapped a version of Eminem's "My Name Is."

"Hi, my name is, (what?) my name is, (who?) my name is, (wicky-wicky) slim chances," Stewart sang, replacing Eminem's mention of his nickname, "Slim Shady."
