Fading Mike Huckabee Spends Weekend Feuding With Gavin Newsom On Twitter

mike huckabee 2

Former Arkansas Governor and current Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee spent his Labor Day weekend fighting with California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom on Twitter. Huckabee started trolling the California Democrat over the jailing of Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, when he told The Daily Caller:

You’ve got Democrats who ignored the law when it was the law to have traditional marriage, Gavin Newsom in San Francisco as mayor, performed same-sex weddings even though it was illegal. Did he ever get put in jail? He most certainly did not.

Huckabee tweeted a link to the interview, prompting Newsom to respond with a series of tweets pointing out flaws in Huckabee’s analogy. Most notably, Newsom noted that after the California Supreme Court ordered him to stop issuing marriage licenses, he complied. Therefore, unlike Kim Davis, he was never in contempt of court.

After Newsom set Huckabee straight on his track record with regards to same sex marriages, the Republican switched gears and attacked Newsom’s policy towards immigration. Huckabee unleashed a barrage of tweets interspersing random newspaper headlines that implicitly criticized Newsom. Huckabee blasted Newsom both for performing same-sex marriages and for San Francisco’s immigration policy, during his tenure as mayor of San Francisco.

Governor Huckabee has become a non-factor in the GOP presidential race. Nationally, he is polling in the low single digits. His pathetic campaign is falling apart at the seams, but Huckabee is still under the illusion that if he gets irate enough about gays getting married, Republican voters will come flocking back to him.

However, Huckabee’s feeble trolling of California Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom, comes across more as a sign of weakness than a show of strength. Surely, Huckabee is trying to copy the Trump model of running a campaign built on a foundation of insulting and ridiculing others. Unfortunately, for Mr. Huckabee, his desperate attempts to project “strength” by insulting Gavin Newsom, merely serves as an unintended exercise in self-ridicule for the former Arkansas Governor.

  1. the biggest crime is, hearing the huckster and his lame-o garage band doing the worst covers, ever… watching him play his bass with that suit and tie on, with that smarmy face, is a real abortion.

  2. Huckabee is coming to the carter county jail in Grayson KY tomorrow to speak, free Kim Davis. It’s a sad day when politics…which was the plan all along, can stir up such hatred with misinformation. He actually advocates to follow only the laws you believe in. Some Christians believe in the 10 commandments specifically thou shall not kill so if they held a government position they would deny any gun permits or concealed and carry permits.
    Question to all these politicians if elected, will you try to interject your personal religion into laws or do you believe they are separate …..hmm!

  3. Stick a fork in him. He’s done. Especially after his, shall we say, “creative” interpretation of the Constitution.

  4. I wish they showed as much revulsion for murderers, rapist, pedophiles, adulterers, hate mongers, fear mongers, liars, slanders, the greedy….as they do for homosexuals! Instead they embrace them (Gingrich, Vitter, umm, Duggan, Dunggans whatever their names are), Nugget (pedophile, white supremacist (haters and fear mongers).

    How backwards can you get?

  5. Threw away all Ted Nugent’s music and removed from playlists after I found out what a pervert he is and how much of a stranglehold the gop cult have him in.

    Can’t listen to what used to be one of my favorites anymore.


  6. You don’t have to look very far for the answer to that question. Pretty much every one of them is wearing their fake Christianity on their sleeve.

  7. That first sentence up to and including “the greedy” pretty much defines the Republican Party lately.

  8. Fatass huckleberry never had a chance. His true colors are not very pretty. He is a stupid xtian bigot.

  9. Cloaking their bigotry in Christian robes does not make it any less repulsive. That goes for all religionists of every stripe.

  10. His execrable taste in music alone should be enough to disqualify ol’ Huckleberry from elected orifice. It appears as if he hasn’t listened to anything new since 1974 and his playlist consists entirely of some of the most reactionary and misogynistic music imaginable. I’ll wager he never heard a song by the Clash, Elvis Costello, the Sex Pistols, the Velvet Underground, the NY Dolls or even the Ramones in his life.

  11. I’ve always been puzzled about the Christian Right (or Wrong). Jesus always preached love, kindness, and he seemed to go out of his way to be inclusive. But THESE “Christians” don’t seem to adhere to His teachings. Just the opposite. They go out of their way to HATE anyone who doesn’t believe exactly as they do. Yep, hate is their game…Christian is their name.

  12. … notice how he just hot-footed it to the Kane’tucky jail in order to visit Miss Kimbo first?

    And, notice how Cruz always takes a “hop-skip” into the room/stage in an attempt to appear “younger” than the other GOP candidates? I wonder who does his choreography; the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders?

    (may he get caught with one of their body parts in his hands and a number of their hands on his…in the biblical sense, of course!).

  13. Maxie 2014,
    I agree with your comment whole heartedly! I hope you will bear with me if I use my reply to make a suggestion some may see as off subject.
    The recent furor over the display of the Confederate Flag seems to have died down with a couple of legislatures passing token resolutions removing the offensive rag from prominent places on public lands.
    There should not be laws restricting idiots fro displaying it on their cars, homes, and businesses. To pass such laws would violate the First Amendment.
    There are no laws prohibiting individuals who are so inclined from complaining about those who persist in displaying this symbol of hatred, racism and cruelty. If you see the flag displayed on a business (Like Dixie Recreational Vehicle Sales in Newport News VA) or fluttering from the back of a pick up truck, or in the year of a lot in a trailer park, take action. Contact the business owner (757 249-1257) and request its removal. Threaten a boycott.

  14. Call the owner of the trailer park and tell him/her you find the flag offensive and ask hi to have the tenant remove it. Leave a note on the pick up truck telling the driver he is advertising that he is a racist and demonstrating that he denies the truth of Christ’s message.

    We need to stamp out this symbol of racism and banish the so called Southern Heritage from our country.

  15. Huckleberry has plenty of company at the bottom of the gee oh pee’s pathetic list of Presidential candidates.

  16. Let me be clear about Mike Huckabee: He is not a patriot; he is not a true Christian. He IS an anarchist hiding behind the veil of a hollow and pretentious religious belief. Huckabee is not good for God and Christ, not good for this nation and not good for Kentucky. He has an allegiance with Mat Staver of Liberty Council, an organization that is anti-U.S. Constitution; wanting to convert the United States into a Christian theocracy. These folk are the equivalent of homegrown terrorists out to destroy our democratic republic. Huckabee is a heretic and blasphemer who disgraces God and Christ on a regular basis.

  17. What lt governor Gavin Newsom did WAS NOT illegal, there was NO law against same-sex marriage and when a judge stepped in, Newsom stopped.


  18. If this had been a Muslim cleric there would be no fanfare. $uckabee and Cruz are telling us they want to be dictators, not POTUS. They have called President Obama dictator without warrant, and I feel like strangling Cruz every time he says lawlessness.

  19. …the Huckster and Tez Crud are only involved in KY. because it may help their poll numbers…Kim Davis is in contempt o’ court and released ONLY due to political pressure…how long until Teatards realize they’re being used like a Kleenex???

  20. Can we just give these idiots a couple of the southern states (Alabama, Mississippi, and Arkansas maybe) and let them go make their own country? Republic of Jesus-stan or United states of AynRandia or something. They can have all the god and guns and limited gubmint freedumb they can handle. Teach and preach jesus in schools and not let gay people get married. No taxes except for on poor people, no one will be on welfare, no one gets gubmint money or help with anything. Privatize the police and fire dept because socialism. Let’s see what happens. These a-holes need to just STFU and go away. REPUBLICANS DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU.

  21. Christian cons are very selective of which Bible verses they believe and which ones they ignore. In other words they do not live by the Bible and all the teachings of Jesus while he was on earth. The way they act is despicable and not at all what I was taught growing up as a baptist in the south. They should be ashamed, but alas they lack the knowledge to know shame for what it is.

  22. The idea of segregating them is appealing, and the image is HI-larious.

    Back in the real world, though, let’s not cede one more inch to these yahoos. We’re the ones who need to take back America. No one should have to live in the world they want to make, not even them.

  23. What can be said about a man who’s crowning achievement is being the Governor of Arkansas. Even Clinton did that and became President, something Huckabee will never know.

  24. Being left-handed … black or being gay is just as natural. It is a sometimes rare occurrence to fall in Love and to hold that person in your heart and be loved in return … it is something that should be celebrated! If it’s between two guys or two girls — all the better. It takes even more courage to defend that LOVE!

    To see the religious lunatics manipulate government and peoples’ lives — is shameful.

    Einstein stated in a letter recently auctioned that the bible was a collection of primitive legends. He said believing in God was childish and he as a Jew is no different than another person and are not chosen by God.
