Must-see morning clip: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart destroy the Hobby Lobby decision

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart missed out on quite a bit during their two-week hiatus, including the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in favor of the craft store Hobby Lobby. The Hobby Lobby decision stated that “closely held corporations” do not have to provide contraception coverage to employees, if contraception infringes on religious beliefs.

Each host had his own take on the “unanimous 5-4 decision,” as Colbert called it. “Set your humping to dry,” Colbert joked, given that contraception would no longer be covered. Colbert explained that the court had ruled in favor of closely held corporations and their religious beliefs.
