Mike Huckabee Says Screw It And Decides To Go Full Racist During Democratic Debate

The former Governor of Arkansas sent out several tweets critical of Black Lives Matter and one especially gross tweet disparaging Asians on Tuesday night.

When you are stuck in the bottom tier of the national Republican polls, and your latest publicity stunt with an attention-seeking county clerk didn’t quite shoot your numbers up like you hoped, I guess you’ll do anything to try to appeal to the lowest common denominator known as the GOP base. While the first Democratic primary debate was moving along Tuesday night on CNN, current GOP Presidential candidate and former Ted Nugent bassist Mike Huckabee decided to say “fuck it” and just go full on racist on his Twitter account.

Apparently live-tweeting the debate, the Huckster first took issue with a question posed to the five Democrats regarding their feelings about the #BlackLivesMatter movement. In typical Huckabee fashion, he said that racism is not a skin problem but a sin problem and insisted that all lives matter. He also equated cops being shot and cars burning with protesters.

 

Perhaps feeling in an especially white mood after that little tweetburst, Huck felt like it was time to toss out an Asian joke, because why the fuck not. I mean, it isn’t like any minorities are going to vote for him anyway, so why not get frisky?  

 

I mean, are you fucking serious? An Asian dog-cooking joke? Does he get his material from Borscht Belt comedians?

As you’d expect, the ex-Governor of Arkansas took heat right away from those on Twitter.

 

 

Congrats to Huckabee for winning Racist Asshole of the Week!
