Jon Stewart Shuts Down Mike Huckabee Over Beyoncé Statements with His Own Video
Here's someone who isn't here for the Carter's – Mike Huckabee, a former host on Fox News and governor of Arkansas, and a potential in the 2016 presidential candidate. In his new book, God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy, Huckabee talks Beyoncé's 2014 Grammy performance and Jay-Z exploiting his wife.
"...Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom. Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?"
Huckabee didn't stop there and continued with his fascination on Mrs. Carter, when he appeared on The Daily Show and said, "Beyoncé doesn't have to be vulgar to set trends." In another classic read, Jon Stewart shuts down Mike Huckabee, responding to Mike's thoughts simply with a clip of the former-governor, alongside Ted Nugent, performing "Cat Scratch Fever." The explicit song features lyrics on making that "thing" purr at the stroke of a man's hand.
Huckabee went on to validate the song, but Stewart quickly shut him up and kept it moving. "You can't single out a corrosive culture and ignore the one that you live in because you're used to it."
