When Mike Huckabee isn’t being a racist, or racist, or a sexist, he’s being a racist-chauvinist. After saying, “More white people have been shot by police officers this past year than minorities” on Fox News the other day, the Washington Post wanted to ask Huckabee how he justified misrepresenting reality that way. The numbers he was citing were put together by the Washington Post. What those numbers actually showed was that black people are more than three times as likely to be shot by police officers than white people.
We asked about this question of rates and per capita calculation, and Huckabee provided this comment through his spokesman: “It’s not me that needs to be ‘fact checked.’ It’s the Post — I only said exactly what YOU reported. My comments were 100 percent factual. The pure facts also reveal that 94 percent of those killed by police are men, so by your ‘proportional’ standards, the real movement in America should be ‘Male Lives Matter.'”
First off—what a dick!
Mike Huckabee is the perfect example of what happens to a dream deferred. In Mike’s case, having lost all respectability in his search to become president, his little mind has dried up like a raisin in the sun. The rejection Mikey got from the evangelicals earlier this primary season has made that sore fester and then run. The bags under his eyes are sagging like a heavy load, and he just needs something to make him explode!
