Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) says that he has been trying to forget that he was forced to interview a woman who was fired because her boss thought her breasts were too large.
In a recent interview with Politico, Huckabee took a look back at his time being a radio host as The Mike Huckabee Show comes to an end after nearly two years of trying to go head-to-head against Rush Limbaugh.
He recalled that a producer scheduled one interview that really made him uncomfortable.
“It was a woman who got fired because she said that her boss thought that her breasts were too big. And I’m not making this up,” the one-time Republican presidential candidate explained. “So I’m sitting there having to interview this woman about her boss thought her breasts were too big. I’ve had conversations with a lot of people, public and private, but this is just not one I want to have on a national radio show.”
“It was bizarre. It was absolutely the most awkward, uncomfortable conversation I think I’ve probably ever had.”
Huckabee said that he told his producer: “Look, I don’t mind doing fun stuff, I don’t mind doing some stuff that’s off the wall, but this is the kind of topic — this isn’t going to happen again.”
But he added that the producer “didn’t last very long with the show and maybe this was why.”
Huckabee, who also hosts a Fox News show, noted that he had “tried to forget” talking to the woman, but “unfortunately I’m unable to.”
