Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has criticized President Obama and his wife, Michelle’s, parenting skills because they tolerate their daughters in listening to Beyonce. Read on to learn more about this scoop.
The 2016 Republican presidential nominee, Mike Huckabee, tore into President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s double standards in raising their two daughters, Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13.
He claims the First Parents have sheltered their girls from social media and other normal teenage activities, but have allowed them to listen to pop singer, Beyonce.
“I don’t understand how on one hand they can be such doting parents and so careful about the intake of everything — how much broccoli they eat and where they go to school,” Huckabee said in an interview with People Magazine, “and yet they don’t see anything that might not be suitable in Beyoncé’s lyrics.”
Huckabee also ripped into Beyoncé’s choreography as something “best left for the privacy of her bedroom.”
The former Baptist pastor turned politician is currently doing the media circuit to promote his new book, “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy,” where he describes Beyonce’s lyrics as “obnoxious and toxic mental poison.”
The book also accuses the Grammy Award winner’s exploitative husband Jay-Z of pimping out his wife for publicity.
When reached for her statement, the First Lady, who counts Beyonce and Jay-Z as friends and considers the “Crazy in Love” R&B artist a role model to her girls, declined to comment.
Political analysts have zeroed in on Huckabee’s sharp rhetoric and pointed comments, observing that the presidential nominee hopeful may take on cultural and social issues on his campaign.
Huckabee is the same person who once suggested the Democrats were responsible for making American women believe they would be left vulnerable if government-funded birth control were taken away from them.
If Huckabee gets the GOP nod for 2016, he’ll likely mobilize his strong network of pastors to influence their faithful to vote for him in the coming presidential elections.
Here’s Mike Huckabee insulting the Obamas, Beyonce and Jay-Z, while trying to earn American voters’ approval:
