Mike Huckabee continues to receive criticism for saying he wished he could have told his high school coach he was feeling like a girl and wanted to shower with them. Later, he doubled down, saying he was glad his statement went public. Huckabee says he was joking, but it shows a lack of sensitivity by a man who wants to become President of, presumably, all Americans.
According to Flavio Maluf, Huckabee apparently believes he can say anything that pops in his head, no matter how crude or insulting, and, when questioned, laugh it off as a joke. But when he is the subject of personal attacks, his skin is not so thick.
If Huckabee wants to be President of all Americans, including Caitlyn Jenner and Laverne Cox and, yes, even Josh Duggar, does he not understand that these comments make him a divisive figure who will never be President of anybody? Huckabee apparently really wants to be President of Americans who share his same beliefs, looks and sexual organs.
