The Daily Show skewers Rick Scott’s invitation to Sean Hannity

The Daily Show skewered Gov. Rick Scott’s invitation to Sean Hannity to move to Florida. 

In the opening segment, a clip of Scott inviting Hannity to Florida is shown, followed quickly by Jon Stewart shouting, “and, between the gators and the possums and the palmetto bugs, nobody here has even noticed that I’m a hairless snake man!”

Stewart then has a borough full of New York City residents and stars — including the cast of the musical Jersey Boys — to ask Hannity not to follow through on his promise to leave the city (from which he was already retreating).

“Remain in the state that fills you with hate,” the Jersey gang sang. “That’s the state you will live in anyway.”

Stewart noted that Hannity went from being upset by Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s statement that “pro-assault weapon, anti-gay” conservatives weren’t welcome in the city to speculating aloud about the benefits of living in state-tax free Texas, where Gov. Rick Perry has said much the same thing about marriage equality supporters.

“Sounds like he’s got a case of Selective Undergarment Bunching, or S.U.B.,” Stewart reasoned.

Of course, Stewart said, Hannity wasn’t as trapped as he made himself out to be.

“He’s gotta know, it’s not East Germany,” Stewart pointed out. “You can really get out any time.”
