Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee went on “The Daily Show” Monday night to not only talk about his new book — “God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy” — but also a potential 2016 presidential bid.

Huckabee recently gave up his show on Fox News to explore his options.

But Jon Stewart questioned the wisdom of quitting his show of six years, for what Huckabee called a “very likely, very possible” run for the White House.

“Let me tell you something,” Stewart leaned in and said. “Go back and beg them for your job back. You have made a terrible, terrible mistake. What are you doing?”

And of course, the two touched on Beyonce. Huckabee previously has questioned the quality of parenting going on in the White House because the Obamas lets their daughters listen to Beyonce’s songs.

“Young girls want to be like her,” Huckabee said. “Do you know any parent who has a daughter who says, ‘Honey, if you make really good grades, someday, when you’re 12 or 13, we’ll get you your own stripper pole.’ I mean, come on, Jon, we don’t do that in our culture.”
