Megyn Kelly slams Huckabee for rejecting SCOTUS marriage ruling: ‘Like it or not, they get the final say’

Published

An incredulous Megyn Kelly took GOP presidential nomination contender Mike Huckabee to task for his over the top rejection of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling legalizing gay marriage, telling the former Arkansas governor, “Like it or not, they get the final say.”

Huckabee responded to the Supreme Court ruling, saying, ““I will not acquiesce to an imperial court any more than our Founders acquiesced to an imperial British monarch. We must resist and reject judicial tyranny, not retreat.”

“What does that mean?” the Fox host asked Huckabee. “You have to accept this ruling, right? I mean, are you planning on not accepting this ruling in a way?”

“How do we accept something that — on it’s face — is unconstitutional, ” Huckabee replied as Kelly gave him a bemused look and said, “How do you not accept it?”

“It’s the Supreme Court’s job to interpret the Constitution and tell us what it means,” Kelly patiently explained to Huckabee. “And like it or not, they get the final say unless the people decide to pass a constitutional amendment.”

“Glad you brought that up, the people do have a say,” Huckabee replied. “In over thirty states they did say, and they said very clearly that they want to affirm the laws of nature, and the laws of nature’s god, words from the Declaration of Independence, and keep marriage what it’s always been.”

Huckabee went on to compare the same sex marriage ruling to the infamous Dred Scott decision of 1857, which found African Americans were not American citizens.
