Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is hoping to earn a few extra bucks by teaching children his own special view of history.
The Fox News host has launched a series of cartoons that he hopes will correct the “blame America first” attitude.
“When it comes to American history, our nation is facing an epidemic,” Huckabee said in his pitch on the Learn Our History website. “Schools across the country have turned their backs on our children by distorting facts, imposing political biases, and changing the messages behind the important lessons of our history.”
In the first $15 episode, members of the Time Travel Academy use their time machine bicycle to go back and explore “The Reagan Revolution.”
