Earlier this week, Mike got into a HEATED debate with a woman over the large family at one of his campaign stops in Iowa. The whole mess started when the attendee questioned Huckabee’s support of Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar despite their questionable handling of Josh Duggar’s molestation scandal.
For those who don’t know, the Duggar fam are huge supporters of Huckabee and even share the same home state. Even though M.H. once was friendly with Josh, it seems as if they’ve since cut ties.
Check out the portions of the tense convo (below)!
“Woman: When the Duggars came out, and their son had molested their child, you more or less said that you felt sorry for the parents. Their parents let it continue for over two years…
Mike: “You don’t know—ma’am, I’m sorry, but I’m going to stop you… You’re accusing me of supporting child abuse. And I’m going to take you on on that because that hurts my feelings, and is absolutely… Let me tell you something—you have no idea what you’re talking about. You don’t know that family, and I do. You don’t know them. I’ve never supported child abuse—let me finish! You do not know that family. I never supported anything that happened to those daughters. I supported the fact that those daughters were maliciously and savagely abused not just by their brother, but by the news media who maliciously exploited them for their own purpose without regard of what it was doing to those young ladies.”
Woah! Did the politician just dub J.D. as “evil”? It’s clear he’s DONE with the eldest Duggar!
But wait — the drama didn’t end there! Watch Huck get even more angered (below)!
So, whose side are YOU on in this debate?
