Unbelievable! Do you think he even realizes how offensive and ignorant he sounds?
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee recently lashed out at the pregnant and engaged Natalie Portman, because he thinks that she's setting a bad example for single moms-to-be in the United States!
"People see a Natalie Portman who boasts, 'We're not married but we're having these children and they're doing just fine.' I think it gives a distorted image. It's unfortunate that we glorify and glamorize the idea of out-of- wedlock children. Most single moms are very poor, uneducated, can't get a job, and if it weren't for government assistance, their kids would be starving to death and never have health care. And that's the story that we're not seeing."
Let's ignore the fact that she ISN'T a single mother, she's ENGAGED for just a moment, because it doesn't matter anyway!
What's distorted, buddy, is your perception of reality if you can go ahead and make the assumption that most single parents - which, AGAIN, is NOT THE CASE WITH NATALIE PORTMAN AND HER FIANCE - are not only poor and uneducated, but incapable of raising their children because they're not protected by the sanctity of marriage.
How about all of the 'traditional' families that rely on government assistance?
Singling out an educated, successful young woman for as preposterous reason as this is truly just twisted. Ugh.
