Bible-thumping, bigoted Republican candidate Mike Huckabee has been popping up in more news feeds as of late, by taking advantage of a photo-op with bigot Kim Davis, the Kentucky clerk who recently did a brief stint in jail for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
It’s not surprising that Huckabee has aligned himself with Davis, as he has repeatedly asserted the Bible’s authority over our laws and institutions, and has stated that “God’s law” takes precedence over things like the Supreme Court. However, Davis is not the first hypocritical asshat that Huckabee has rushed to support. A couple of months back, he affirmed his support of the Duggar family as their infamous scandal broke, which involved the revelation that Josh Duggar (who had spent much of his time railing against how homosexuals are destroying family values) molested his sisters when he was a teenager, and the Duggars helped to cover it up. You may also remember Huckabee’s creepy and 8th grade level joke about how when he was younger, he would have wished for the opportunity to say he was transgender, so that he could shower with girls.
All of these recent headlines from Huckabee bring about a pleasant reminder of the time when Fox News’ Megyn Kelly accidentally started to pronounce his name as “Fuckabee” on the air. Enjoy.
Was it a Freudian slip? Who knows. But it’s hilarious, especially given the context of what a complete assclown Huckabee really is. And it doesn’t cease being satisfying to watch.
