Huckabee Schools Stephanopoulos On Kim Davis

On Sunday, former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee, appearing on ABC’s This Week, was queried by host George Stephanopoulos about Huckabee’s blazing defense of Kim Davis, who was jailed for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses in Kentucky. Stephanopoulos started by stating that some conservatives said Davis should not have defied the Supreme Court’s ruling that same-sex marriage was legal, quoting Rod Dreher, who stated, “What we cannot do, and what the government cannot permit, is open defiance of settled law.” Huckabee answered bluntly, “He would have hated Abraham Lincoln, because Lincoln ignored the 1857 Dred Scott decision that said black people weren’t fully human. It was a wrong decision. And to say that we have to surrender to judicial supremacy is to do what Jefferson warned against, which is in essence to surrender to judicial tyranny.”

I watched it and Stephanopoulos came across as a bumbling idiot. Despite Huckabee answering his questions it was obvious that Georgie was not listening to his answers and simply kept repeating himself.

Huckabee - 1
Stephanopoulos - 0

Wow boy Georgeee is an idiot. We already know he is a lying gutless journalist and after failing as Clinton's useful idiot. Any troll who supported locking up this women for enforcing a law. Since the Supreme court ruling did NOT specify. Is also a useful idiot. It very obvious we have plenty of em in this country. SAD

Huchabee is selling his snake oil to the ignorant. The supreme court did not create a law, they ruled on constitutional rights.
Article III Section 2 of the Constitution gives the Supreme Court constitutional authority to decide constitutional issues. The idea of equal protection, for everyone, seems to go right over his head.

You fail to understand that marriage has been defined by statute in the various states sense the inception of the country.

The supreme court decision that made it a so call constitutional right ignored Amendment 10 of the Bill of Rights.
