Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, American presidential candidate Mike Huckabee discussed his thoughts on what should happen to eleven year olds who are raped.
Huckabee was discussing a recent court ruling in Paraguay, where the country's government refused to allow a now-11-year-old girl to have an abortion when she was impregnated after being raped by her father.
Huckabee seemed to think Paraguay's decision was a good thing, arguing that it prevented a second tragedy — though, of course, Huckabee conveniently overlooked the first tragedy (the rape) while also disregarding the fact that it might be a health risk for an 11-year-old to carry a pregnancy to term and give birth.
Huckabee's exact words:
He's at it again!
Remember that time Mike Huckabee DIDN'T say something insane or controversial? That's okay, we don't either! LOLz!
Last night on The Daily Show, Jon Stewart responded to some of Huckabee's recent controversial statements when he said of President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran that the Obama was essentially marching the Israelis to "the door of the oven."
Stewart gave the appropriate response of cringes and loud noises without actually saying any words in response to this asinine statement. Then, Stewart played more recent comments by Huckabee that included standing by what he said, comparing the IRS to the Gestapo, and making anti-transgender statements — and Stewart continued to be outraged without words.
A great point was brought up during the clips in stating that there's a Donald Trump effect that's possibly causing candidates to say outrageous things to gain attention.
At the end of the day, when someone is that ignorant, what else is there to do than groan and do your best not to yell profane things. We applaud you Stewart, you're truly more patient than we are!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious video (below) to see how moronic Huckabee actually is and how Stewart handles himself under extreme frustration!
On Thursday, TLC finally decided to cancel their hit show 19 Kids And Counting in the wake of Josh Duggar's admission to previously molesting underage girls.
While it took the cable network over a month to find any way possible to salvage their ratings juggernaut, social media outrage finally convinced TLC that the show was not worth saving!
Once the news broke, fans and critics alike took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the matter.
Most were relived that the reality show was finally off the air for good:
He couldn't be more on point!
John Oliver delivered one of the best breakdowns about transgender discrimination we've heard!
He then makes sure to very clearly define "transgender" while giving his input on the media's curiosity by saying:
Transgender people have a gender identity that differs from the one they were assigned at birth, and that gender identity is not the same as sexual orientation. Gender identity is who you are, sexual orientation is who you love. Some transgender people do undergo hormone therapy or sexual reassignment surgery as part of their transition; some do not. And interestingly, their decision on this matter is, medically speaking, none of your fucking business.
From here, the late night host points to specific stories where transgendered people have been shamed in one way or another. He covers various stories and how they relate to shaming in politics such as Mike Huckabee disgusting misunderstanding of what it means to be transgender — in military service such as the case of an Iraqi soldier who feels more at home and "on vacation" because they essentially not held to the same social norms as they are back home — and even at the DMV where a some transgender people were asked to remove makeup and wigs.
Make sure you ch-ch-check out the whole segment (below) as it's not only HIGH-larious for the light that John brings to it, but is EXTREMELY informative and drives home the point that "transgenders still face a host of obstacles" and we need to continually strive for equality!
Does this mean people would rather see a mass murderer in office than a Republican?
In the latest Washington Post-ABC News survey, Harry Potter villain Voldemort had a higher approval rating than many of the Republican presidential candidates.
But He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named didn't come out on top.
Leading the poll was Star Wars villain Darth Vader and "the shark from Jaws". But who does everyone believe to be the best pick to run our great nation?
The Terminator, obvs.
