Kim Davis was the butt of a hilarious joke by Emmys host Andy Samberg last night.

The comedian dedicated one of his opening monologue punchlines to the Rowan County Clerk who has become a symbol of intolerance after refusing to allow gay couples to marry.

He said: “Paula Deen is on this season of Dancing with the Stars, but I gotta say, if I wanted to see an intolerant lady dance, I would’ve gone to one of Kim Davis’s four weddings.

“It’s so ironic that she came out of jail to ‘Eye of the Tiger,’ when you consider how many guys have boned each other to that song.”

The anti-gay jailbird has been accused of issuing invalid marriage licenses.

Kim Davis returned to work a week ago afters spending time in jail for contempt of court – but said she would still not issue marriage licences to gay couples, and she would not authorise her deputies to do so.

Davis said she would not authorise her deputies to issue same-sex marriage licences.
