The 'Daily Show' host mocks Mike Huckabee, John Roberts and more.

Jon Stewart had a field day with Republican reactions to the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing gay marriage across the country.

He played a clip of pundits asking if gay marriage was a slippery slope. What would stop three adults from marrying each other?  

"I knew even when I was 5, I was different. While the other boys played with trucks and army men, I was figuring out bed-sharing schedules," Stewart joked.

Others asked if florists who refused to cater to gay weddings would be put out of business or shut down for discrimination. Stewart responded with a photoshopped image of Archie Bunker as a florist.

"I am so tired of this old trope, this old stereotype about anti-gay florists," Stewart said. "That's all we ever hear about is anti-gay florists."

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and others talked about how letting the Supreme Court decide such an issue was not what the founding fathers envisioned.

"Then why did they put that article in the Constitution?" Stewart asked.

He also examined Chief Justice John Roberts' dissent, which asked, "Just who do we think we are?"

Stewart made a Taco Bell joke to respond to that: "Perhaps it's time we go back to a Supreme Court, when the court was just a court with extra sour cream."

The Daily Show airs at 11 p.m. on Comedy Central.
