Jon Stewart Makes Cartoon Film of Justice Scalia's "Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day"

Comedy Central

Stewart mercilessly mocked the Supreme Court justice for the phrases he uses in his dissents.

Jon Stewart dedicated a segment of his show on Monday to making fun of Justice Antonin Scalia for his dissent over the Supreme Court's ruling legalizing same-sex marriage on Friday.

"You kiss your mother with that mouth?" asked Stewart, laughing at Scalia's use of phrases like "jiggery-pokery" and "pure applesauce." He added, "Let us not say things we can never take back — or even understand."

Stewart called the justice a "human dissentipede" who used an "old-man dictionary." He also implied Scalia was a hypocrite for criticizing the Supreme Court for overstepping with its gay-marriage ruling but having "no problem telling people to f— off" when Scalia differed from voters on campaign-finance spending, ObamaCare or the Voting Rights Act.

"I feel bad for Scalia, I really do," said Stewart with a smirk. In honor of "one of the worst Fridays" of Scalia's life, Stewart extended a "gesture of sympathy" with a cartoon of Scalia's "terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day." Watch below.
