Mike Huckabee Jokes: Men Hunt & Fish Together, Women Go To Restrooms Together
April 10, 2014

Mike Huckabee cannot keep his foot out of his mouth. When you've recently been in trouble over lame-brain comments you made about women's libidos, you might try to refrain from ridiculous women jokes and stereotypes:

Talking Points Memo:

Mike Huckabee played up gender stereotypes in a speech delivered Tuesday night in Iowa.

As she live-tweeted the former Arkansas governor's speech at a fundraiser for Iowa's Faith and Freedom Coalition on Tuesday in Waukee, Iowa, Des Moines Register columnist Kathee Obradovich passed along this line.

"Yes, he really said that," Obradovich said in an email to TPM on Wednesday, adding that she ultimately did not write a column about the event.

The comment has received little coverage. The Register covered the event, but its news report didn't include the line.

His joke about women going to the restroom together came after he challenged those in attendance to stand for their convictions, even if they have to do it alone.

Mike, I think ladies love going to the restroom together because it's a secret spot that's off limits to men so they can check out their libidos and make sure their birth control prescriptions are up to date.
