Huckabee's sick joke about Obama having gun pointed at him

In response to a load noise, Mike Huckabee made a rather tastless and sick joke about Barack Obama trying to evade a gunman. If that wasn't sick enough the people at the NRA meeting laughed about it.

"That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he's getting ready to speak," said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. "Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor."

WTF? Disgusting. Is there video? There will be hell to pay for this.

eh

I don't think it's that terrible. I don't like it, but I don't feel any kind of outrage either. Probably because it's just the Huckster.

Hard to take Huck seriously

The guy is amusing but only relevant to evangelicals.

Re: Huckabee's sick joke about Obama having gun po

up to his point, during the campaign, he'd been relatively classy.

This however is not.

I am speechless
Simply no words to describe Huckabee's stupidity.

The Republicans

Know they can beat Obama, so instead they hope someone from the NRA will take a shot at him.
