My friend and fellow cartoonist Mike Luckovich of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution drew a great cartoon on GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s “oven door remark.” He drew Huckabee making the statement on Donald Trump’s The Apprentice. It was the kind of idea I wish I had thought of except there’s one problem.
Huckabee is not an apprentice when it comes to stupid statements. He made a comment recently about transgenders saying he wishes he could have used that excuse in high school to shower with girls. Hang in there, Huckster. Maybe someday a girl will want to shower with you.
He once compared his weight loss to being in a concentration camp.
Continuing on the Holocaust theme he once compared it to abortion.
He once asked if Mormons believe Jesus and the Devil are brothers.
He congratulated Canada on their National Igloo (Canada doesn’t have a national igloo).
Then there was the time he compared being gay to bestiality and pedophilia and said “I think the radical view is to say that we’re going to change the definition of marriage so that it can mean two men, two women, a man and three women, a man and a child, a man and animal.”
Did you hear about the time he claimed that the Newtown shooting was because “we systematically removed God from our schools.”
When it comes to crazy, stupid and just odd statements, Mike Huckabee is no apprentice.
