Jon Stewart Completely Exposes Mike Huckabee’s Beyonce Criticism Hypocrisy

During Monday night’s broadcast of The Daily Show, host Jon Stewart tore into former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee over his criticism of singer Beyonce. Recently, the ex-Fox News host had made waves over a chapter in his recently released book, God, Guns, Grits, And Gravy, where he targeted the pop singer for her sexualized performances and the influence she has on children and young adults. Huckabee also called her husband, Jay-Z, “a pimp” for objectifying her sexually.

In the interview, which was edited for broadcast but posted in its entirety on the show’s website, Stewart took Huckabee to school, pointing out his hypocrisy due to his own close friendship with has-been rocker Ted Nugent. After Huckabee had made a ridiculous statement regarding 12-year-olds and stripper poles in relation to Beyonce, Stewart told him that “was truly outrageous” and decided to roast Huckabee then and there.

Stewart aired a clip from Huckabee’s Fox show where the ex-governor was playing bass guitar during a live performance with Ted Nugent. The song they played was “Cat Scratch Fever,” and the clip focused on the lurid lyrics, specifically “I can make that pussy purr with the stroke of my hand.” After the video, Huckabee tried to defend his obvious hypocrisy and differentiate the content of Nugent’s songs with the “crudeness” of today’s music. His defense amounted to claiming Nugent’s song was made for adults and it wasn’t nominated for a Grammy in 1978, unlike Beyonce’s music today.

The Daily Show host wasn’t having any of it. He pointed out that Huckabee is fine with Nugent’s sex-obsessed music because he agrees “with his stance on firearms.” Meanwhile, he is put off by Beyonce “because she seems alien to you.” Moving away from Nugent to another artist that Huckabee admires, Stewart highlighted how “Johnny Cash shot a man just to watch him die,” referencing Cash’s song “Folsom Prison Blues.”

Overall, Huckabee was torched by Stewart Monday night. When Huckabee told Stewart to read his book for greater context, the host responded, “Oh, I read it…it ain’t Shakespeare!” Stewart also took the wannabe Presidential candidate to task for constantly using “Harvard” as a derogative, pointing out how throughout his book and in interviews, Huckabee uses the college, or higher education in general, in a degrading manner.

Huckabee may have 2016 ambitions, which is why he quit his Fox show, but I feel this interview will do a bit of damage to him in the long run. He has already been ridiculed by the mainstream press and Democrats over his Beyonce comments, especially as he’s related them to the Obamas. However, Stewart was able to show his viewers how narrow-minded and enclosed Huckabee’s thinking truly is, and did it while fully exposing his hypocrisy in a way others have not.

  1. It’s just one more example of Huckabee-style hypocrisy. It underscores the fact that he doesn’t really care about Beyonce and Jay Z, except to use them in order to badmouth the Obama family. Every time he opens his mouth to criticize the First Family, he digs a deeper hole for himself. That’s because his dislike and contempt for this president cloud his judgment and blind him to his own dishonesty.

  2. Another Fox newser trying to spread fear amongst neighbors, seems to gin up plenty of hate now if they can direct that hate towards some entity say maybe a president that looks a little different than the norm,, Just sayin….

  3. Mike Huckster-bee’s hypocrisy exposes it’s self…<snicker! on it's face…to those of us who are not the Gullible, God, Gun's and Grits crowd. Hypocrisy IS in the very DNA of Mikey and his Christian Fascist Reich Wing.

  4. I just love the fact that the Mayor of Paris
    is talking about suing his alma mater FOX
    for all the lies they have been spinning about Paris and no go areas.

  5. Why is it that Huckabee reminds me so much of : GOMER PYLE ? ;) (Some of you might know that character from the ’60’s TV Show…

    Not that it has anything to do with the article above, but that face and voice seems just perfect Preaching Fire and Brimstones to a congregant straight from Little House on the Prairie.

  6. im sorry, but this fat bastard looks like he is ready to pop like a balloon. he looks like the hulk ready to burst through his suit but minus the muscles. this guy is garbage and so is anyone who listens to his hate. these fake Christians are the biggest hypocrites around aside from the GOP. the wealthy and the religious fanatics are working overtime to take this country away from the people. we must not let them.

  7. Thomas, the TV character Gomer Pyle was an honest, caring and humble person. Mike Huckabee who plays a preacher on tv is a lying, hypocritical, hateful, arrogant buffoon. Besides some resemblance they are nothing alike.

  8. When I first heard about Huckabee’s Beyonce-themed attack on the Obama family, I was appalled and I continue to be. First of all, I guess a lot of people like Beyonce. Her music is not my style but that’s okay. But to attack the President, the First Lady and their parenting skills is simply dreadful. And, Huckabee has no first hand knowledge that either of those lovely girls is a big Beyonce fan or have ever attended her concerts. Has Huckabee ever spoken with either girl? I have the feeling that their parents don’t exert mind control but do provide the kind of guidance that is appropriate to their daughters’ ages.

    God, the GOP has really sunk way beneath the mire. And Huckabee’s one of the slimiest – racist, ignorant wallower in fake religiosity. And he admires Ted Nugent??? Yuck. He needs to crawl back under the back porch.

    Good for Jon Stewart; where has the rest of the press been on this?

  9. MBA with a BEEMER
    ‘cuz he or she will have a working cell phone & he or she can call triple A for me. lol

    the rednecks, H*LL NO!
    Btw: Huckabee’s son was kicked out of a Boy Scout counselor job ‘cuz his teenaged boy (with a frined of his) hung, slit the throat & murdered a dog while at that Boy Scout Campgrounds.
    look it up in Snopes.

  10. Ped Nugent encouraged a generation of young men to have sex with underage girls and the Huckster goes after Beyonce?

  11. Let’s not forget Miley Cyrus. Allegedly she lower a friend of hers to put her hands down the front of her shorts. Not to mention some of her onstage antics and videos.

  12. Jon Stewart did a lousy job with Huckabee.

    He didn’t do anything that made Huckabee uncomfortable with his hypocrisy- he only allowed him to weasel out of his insulting attacks on Beyonce, college-educated people and the East/West coast.

    I was disgusted with Jon’s inability to deservedly roast Huckabee. He merely smiled and changed the subject.

  13. Thanks Thomas I do get what you mean because they both had that aw-shucks kinda’ southern mannerism. By the way I have always dug the North American P-51 especially the razor backed early models but my favorite is the ol’ venerable workhorse the Curtiss P-40 Warhawk.

  14. Yeah…Real?TrumanDem…..right..sounds to me like you are trying to convince yourself. Jon is respectful yet as sharp as a knife, he cut ol’ Mikey in ways that wont show for a while but he got under Mikeys skin and that is what will burn the most.

  15. Joseph UHL;
    Aww shucks! Dang right! You got it. ;)

    Re: the P-51 Mustang. (Bubble canopy) THE BEST EVER! Wish I could go back in time and FLY it, (In WWII or Korea) Although in Korea there was another favorite of mine: The Sabre Jet. A third favorite of mine is the A-110 Warthog. And The Phantom (Vietnam era) was what I actually saw in combat over there. Being an Ex-Marine.
    So, there it is…..

  16. One has to wonder if queen douche bag Palin would leave her daughters alone in a room with admitted pedophile Wimp Nugent?

  17. My brother Jack who passed recently was on a crew of a C-130B SAC out of Lockbourne Ohio, their wing did clandestine op’s in central and south America as well as Vietnam and Cambodia.

  18. are you aware huckabees son is a animal killer ? he was being a scout leader at a scout camp & he along with another scout hung a dog & tortured it to death he was allowed to go on & be an eagle scout. but they don’t want gay boys in the scouts.some father huckabee is . this son of his you know he is sadistic & always has been . so huckabee is critical of other parents. what a son of a bitch huckabee is.
