Mike Huckabee starts his campaign

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee’s opening salvo in his presidential campaign against the 2016 Democratic nominee (read: Hillary Clinton) is that Barack and Michelle Obama are bad black parents and he really doesn’t like the way they’re raising their kids.

Huckabee had Ted Nugent on his show, with an audience that included children. Nugent, a racist and a pedophile, has sung songs about raping 13 year old girls, among other savory topics. Huckabee apparently thinks this is okay for kids to be exposed to, but not Beyonce.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has accused President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle of parenting by double-standard, in an interview published Tuesday, saying they shelter their daughters from some things but allow them to listen to the music of Beyoncé.

While promoting his new book, Huckabee told People magazine, “I don’t understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything — how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school … and yet they don’t see anything that might not be suitable” in the lyrics and a Beyoncé choreography “best left for the privacy of her bedroom.”

Huckabee described the Grammy Award-winning Beyoncé in his book as “mental poison.”

So, vote for Huckabee and he’ll raise the Obama kids right.
