Mike Huckabee Flummoxed Women At Fox News Use 'Cuss Words' Like Men

Mike Huckabee, the former governor and Fox News host has always been as anti-feminist as can be and has no problem showing you. Back in 1998, he put in print that he believed women should submit themselves to their men-graciously, mind you.

In August of 1998, Huckabee was one of 131 signatories to a full page USA Today Ad which declared: "I affirm the statement on the family issued by the 1998 Southern Baptist Convention." What was in the family statement from the SBC? "A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ."

And his pure Christian ears are very sensitive to profanity. It irks him, but not as much as when a female drops the occasional f-bomb.

Think Progress:

Mike Huckabee channeled his internal Ned Flanders last week, lamenting the fact that he doesn’t just hear cuss words in the office these days, but he even hears them coming from women.

Appearing last Friday on Mickelson in the Morning, an Iowa-based radio show, Huckabee recounted the culture shock he experienced when hearing profanity in the workplace while working for Fox News in New York City.

“In Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the f-bomb and use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting,” Huckabee said. “In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women do it!”

He continued: “This would be considered totally inappropriate to say these things in front of a woman.” But “for a woman to say them in a professional setting,” Huckabee went on, “that’s just trashy!”

Is Huckabee telling us that Roger Ailes hires "trashy" women?

This man wants to be the president of the United States and he can't handle a little profanity coming from women? How is he going to be able to take that call at 3 am?

By the way, all the crap he spews on a daily basis without cuss words is more profane than any swear word his female colleagues could have ever used on the job.
