Mike Huckabee doubles-down on racist tweet targeting Latinos: ‘Wasn’t aware that criminal was a race’

Published

on

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is doubled-down on his racist tweet connecting Nancy Pelosi and MS-13.

Huckabee tweeted a photo of a group of Latinos, identifying them as a gang and suggesting that they were Pelosi’s campaign staff. He was immediately scorched by the internet.

Now, Huckabee is pushing back by claiming that showing a group of Latinos and identifying them as criminals was not racist.

“Yes @ktumulty because MS-13 is not a race but an illegal gang who rapes, murders, and mutilates children as sport,” he wrote. “Nancy Pelosi defended them because she said @realDonaldTrump insulted them. Are you defending them too? Wasn’t aware that criminal was a ‘race.'”

It’s been a rough weekend for the Huckabee family, with Mike’s daughter Sarah getting thrown out of a Virginia restaurant where she tried to eat with her family.

Mason refused to do so, at which point Trump mocked him, saying "You want to be politically correct."

Trump also repeated a line previously made by his press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, asking why former Vice President Joe Biden wore a mask when he was in public but not standing close to anyone, when he wasn't wearing a mask at home with his wife right next to him.
