Former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee has responded to reports that he suggested Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is gay, and it’s basically an earful of fresh manure.
It was reported recently that Huckabee made the comments on the Lauren Ingraham radio show. Those comments were:
‘I’m very disappointed in Lindsey. I sometimes wonder what uniform he puts on each morning when he goes out to the field to play, and I’m not just talking about the partisan uniform.’
In response, Huckabee reached out to The Daily Caller, who originally reported the story. In his response, he said:
‘I’ve never heard that as a euphemism for being gay and would never have said it. I’m pretty well known for saying what I think with clarity. Lindsey is a friend and I would never say that about anyone.
‘I meant simply that he needed to be more loyal to guys like Nunes, who is on the same team and trying to expose illegal surveillance of citizens. I thought your story was reckless and irresponsible.’
Blame the media, sir. Go on. It’s the new trend, we understand. However, that STILL doesn’t make sense. When Huckabee made the comment he said, “I’m not just talking about the partisan uniform.” That’s fine. That covers exactly what Huckabee explained in his response. That being said, what’s the OTHER uniform Huckabee refers to? Fireman uniform? Yankees? The South Carolina Gamecocks? Maintenance man uniform? Police uniform? Trump hater uniform? Seattle Seahawks uniform? Village people uniform?
It’s hard to believe a 61-year-old man has never heard of the euphemism “play for the other team.” It’s mind-boggling honestly. Especially when it is targeted at a man who has never been married, has no children, and has a effeminate southern accent. Graham has been the center of several jokes and rumors about his sexuality.
Graham is well-known for his distaste of President Donald Trump. He’s one of the loudest critics of him and has called for investigations into the Russia debacle that surrounds the Trump administration. He also openly admits he didn’t vote for Trump. Obviously, there’s a rift there.
