'I hope the Hell you believe in exists': Internet obliterates ‘beneath contempt’ Mike Huckabee for posting racist tweet

Mike Huckabee once portrayed himself as an affable centrist Republican, a man who loved people and loved playing his guitar. An ordained Baptist minister who would minister to the nation. He used all that to serve as the Republican governor of Arkansas for nine years, and run for president twice.


That was all a lie, a cover, a smokescreen. A mask.

Mike Huckabee is a racist.

It should come as little surprise. His daughter is the White House press secretary under President Donald Trump. She has a record of supporting Trump's polices and a record of lying to reporters on a regular basis.

Today, Mike Huckabee is under fire after he posted a vile and offensive tweet. It shows an image of young, shirtless teen boys with tattoos. The image has appeared on dozens of websites, and a Google image search titles it as "ms 13 gang sign."

MS-13 is President Trump's "favorite" anti-immigrant tool, a dangerous gang he portrays as Central American, but it was formed on the streets of Los Angeles.

Huckabee had a different title than Google for the photo: "Nancy Pelosi introduces her campaign committee for the take back of the House."

It's clear, unadulterated racism.

And many on social media berated the former Arkansas governor.

Take a look at some of the responses:
