Mike Huckabee Fires Back Against Racism Allegations After Pelosi Tweet — ‘MS-13 Is Not A Race’

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee defended himself against allegations of “racism” on Saturday after he posted a tweet jokingly referring to a picture of MS-13 members as Nancy Pelosi’s “campaign committee for the take back of the House.”

Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty tweeted a picture of Huckabee’s MS-13 tweet juxtaposed with one in which the former Arkansas governor accused the Red Hen’s ownership of bigotry for turning away his daughter, Sarah Sanders, because of her job working with President Trump.

To which Huckabee responded by tweeting that “MS-13 is not a race,” but rather a murderous gang that “Nancy Pelosi defended.”

“Are you defending them too?” Huckabee asked. “Wasn’t aware that criminal was a ‘race.’”
