WATCH: Jon Stewart Doesn't Think Arizona Has Many Redeeming Qualities

It's a rough day when even the NFL thinks you're too homophobic to do business with. Jon Stewart slams Gov. Jan Brewer for vetoing Arizona's antigay bill for economic reasons and not because it was 'morally repugnant.'

The antigay bill that Gov. Jan Brewer took so long to veto should've been a "slam dunk," says The Daily Show's Jon Stewart. 

With Arizona's track record of terrible laws piling up, Stewart reminded the state that it would be a "nuclear waste dump" if it didn't also offer agreeable weather conditions for people who like golf.

Stewart slammed Brewer for taking so long to veto the bill when other conservative lawmakers had already begun backtracking on the legislation.

Even the NFL spoke out against the bill and threatened to move the 2015 Super Bowl out of Arizona. "This is where you are now, Arizona," Stewart said. "You've made yourselves too homophobic and dickish for professional football."
