Mike Huckabee: 'I Never Hit My Mother With A Hammer'

Mike Huckabee takes on Ben Carson's weird personal story of alleged violence and admits he never tried to hurt his own mother.

We're not the only ones listening to Dr. Ben Carson cry over having his past being vetted by the media along with crazed tales of a supposed violent youth and then commenting on the insanity of it all.

Mike Huckabee took Carson's stories on and stuck a finger in Ben's eye:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee assured viewers during an appearance on Monday's episode of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC that he "never stabbed anybody."

"I will go on record today and tell you this, Mika: I never hit my mother with a hammer and I never stabbed anybody," Huckabee said. "Never wrote about it either."

Huckabee has written a dozen books and each has been "put under incredible scrutiny," he said.

The Republican presidential candidate said the vetting process for candidates is "a brutal process."

And to Carson regarding his current media scrutiny, he said, "Pal, you ain't seen nothing yet."

I was wondering when other Republican candidates would start punching holes in Carson's story and now it has begun.
