Mike Huckabee Gets Embarrassed and Exposed During MSNBC Interview About Kim Davis (Video)

huckabee-msnbcVery few things render me speechless, but an MSNBC interview I just watched featuring Mike Huckabee trying to defend Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis almost did just that. Even as someone who despises Huckabee, I found myself cringing during certain points as he tried to slime his way out of answering questions that, if he were to have answered them honestly, would have forced him to admit that he is nothing more than a hypocrite.


Here’s a part of the exchange between Huckabee and MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough:

Brzezinski: What if Kim Davis wanted to get a third or fourth marriage license from somebody who truly believes that you should only get married once? What would you say to that?

Huckabee: Kim Davis – she’s actually been married four times.

Brzezinski: That’s my point.

Huckabee: Maybe you don’t know that she’s been married four times. She’s a person who says, ‘I lived a very different life. I’ve lived a life of sin.’ And four years ago, Kim Davis came to Christ… she found forgiveness and the reason that she is so steadfast and unwavering in her faith is because she knows what God’s grace means. She’s experienced it. And as a result, she says I can’t ever go back and live that life again and the God who forgave me compels me to follow my faith.

Brzezinski: That’s not the answer to my question.

Scarborough: I spent enough time in a Southern Baptist church to know most of the Red Letters in the gospels… and I say this as a divorced man,  Jesus focused a lot more on divorce; focused a lot more on lust; focused a lot more on the poor; focused a lot more on clothing the naked; visiting people in jail; taking care of the hopeless than he did on homosexuality. In fact, he never mentioned homosexuality.

You can read the text of the gospel and what Jesus Christ said and there’s a lot more condemnation for people like myself who’ve been divorced than there is condemnation for people that participate in the gay lifestyle.

Huckabee: Homosexual marriage was not an issue in the First Century. There was no push for same-sex marriage when Jesus was teaching.

Scarborough: Again, Jesus was much more explicit about divorce and you can much more easily make an argument that a judge would refuse to grant divorces because Jesus was far more explicit about divorce equaling adultery.

Scarborough then went on to ask Huckabee if he would support a judge’s “right” to refuse a divorce since the Bible is very explicit about dissolving a marriage – and the former Arkansas governor continued to refuse to directly answer any of the questions.

“I asked you a question,” Brzezinski sternly asked, visibly annoyed at Huckabee’s continual dancing around their questions.Would you support a clerk who would not give Kim Davis a third or a fourth marriage license?”

“I’m not sure if I follow that question,” Huckabee replied.

That’s where I almost lost it. Her question could not have been more specific, yet he just flat-out wasn’t going to answer it because he damn well knew doing so would instantly expose his hypocrisy and bigotry.

He then tried to insist that she was asking a question “of a different nature.”


This is about the point where things just went off the rails. Throughout the rest of the interview, Huckabee continued to dodge their questions. He just started talking out of both sides of his face. He kept going back and forth citing religion to defend his stance on one issue and law to defend his stance on another.

The entire interview showcased just how little Huckabee seems to understand about our Constitution. He continued (as he has for weeks) to try to insist that the Supreme Court wrote some sort of law legalizing same-sex marriage. Except, that’s not even remotely accurate. All the court did was rule that laws restricting the right for same-sex couples to get married were unconstitutional.

It is quite literally what the Supreme Court was created to do – interpret the constitutionality of laws that are passed in this country.

While the interview is just over 16 minutes, I would encourage everyone to take that time if you have it to watch this spectacle. It was undoubtedly maddening, but it was also entertaining to see this bottom-feeding dirtbag, Mike Huckabee, get made to look like the complete fool he is – on national television.

    According to Hukapoo said Jesus said about defining marriage David and Jonathan are married, look it up.

    • “Hukapoo”! I like that one!

      • Ev Rom

        Gay people can use David and Jonathan’s “marriage” in their own ceremonies.

  • Ev Rom

    He’s a preacher talking about what Jesus said and he didnt know… Mathew 25 35 For I hungered, and ye gave Me meat; I was thirsty, and ye gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and ye took Me in;36 naked, and ye clothed Me; I was sick, and ye visited Me; I was in prison, and ye came unto Me… Leviticus 19: “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt… all these reporters had to do is some research to see what the bible says…

    I don’t care what Jesus said about anything pertaining to our governance. Our government is not founded upon Christian principles. It just isn’t.

    This is one looney toon “fellar”. But then again, most Conservative/Republicans are. “What God united, let no man separate it”… “The only valid reason for divorce is if a wife is found in the act of adultery”… “Then the husband may issue a letter of divorce”… But, “If the divorced man marry another woman, divorced or not, he commits adultery”.. Same as “If a divorced woman marry another man, divorced or not, she commits adultery”… But if one of the spouses die, then they are free to remarry. Here is what I think about this charlatan faux Christian Conservative/Republican folks: Bill Clinton, for example, may have his transgressions forgiven by God. But, according to those charlatans, he is a sinner with sins on his conscience. Why? Because he is a Liberal Democrat who hasn’t crossed over to the Republican Party. Unlike Kim Davis who had done so. So by the logic of these loonies from the Conservative/Republican Party, if we’re Liberal/Democrats, our sins will be with us forever, unless of course, we convert to Republicanism. I hear this type of rhetoric from other Countries with different religious faith than ours. Any guess who they are?

      In OK it’s often told to people I know that if they ever vote for a Democrat they will burn in hell.

      Republicans love to try to pretend that gawd is real, noah lived 950 years and (and now suddenly all of the dinosaurs rode on the ark as if that really existed I mean please!) and that they are republicans because of gawd’s orders and – very often times – the orders of grandpappy or great-granny.

      Or pappy or their husband or their church.

      Churches need to s t youknowwhatup u and stop this pretense that they should have a say in politics if they don’t want to go straight into the 40% bracket.

  • Elisabeth Champagne Granata

    The fact that he dodged Mica’s question shows even he knows that he is a hypocrite….what a dangerous man he is!

  • Why are these so-called conservative “Christians” so laser-focused on homosexuality and gay marriage? I mean, there are so many atrocities in the world in which they could be appalled over and be so vocal about, such as poverty/world hunger, violence against women, children and animals, human trafficking, etc., But for some reason, they are just totally fixated on gay marriage/homosexuality.

  • PRIME79

    “Huckabee: Homosexual marriage was not an issue in the First Century. There was no push for same-sex marriage when Jesus was teaching.”

    Okay…..then why do he and his ilk keep using Jesus, what they claim Jesus taught and a book from Jesus’ time to oppose Homosexual marriage? Its been said that you cant reason a person out of a position that they didn’t reason themselves into in the first place. This is exceptionally true of conservatives and to the millionth power for the “religious right”…whatever the hell that even is or means.
