Mike Huckabee is sharing how he really feels about Beyoncé and Jay Z.
In his new book titled, God, Guns, Grits and Gravy, the former Fox News host talks about “popular culture provocations from Jay Z and Beyoncé.”
He explains, “My reaction: Why? Beyoncé is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom.”
He continues, “Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?”
Many reacted on Twitter saying his comments were racist and sexist, and he is losing some potential supporters for a possible 2016 presidential bid already.
I hope Mike Huckabee lost all of the youth vote by bashing Beyonce… he already lost the 2016 election and 2015 just started.

Mike Huckabee called out Jay-Z for his behavior. I asked my magic 8 ball if Huckabee could get the youth vote, it said “No chance.”

The former Arkansas governor left his role as the host of Huckabee at Fox News after six years and said he will make a decision on running for president in late spring.
