Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says the Confederate flag is not a problem because of “one racist lunatic.”

Huckabee said on NBC’s Meet the Press Sunday morning that he does not think presidential candidates should talk about it.

“I still think it’s not an issue for a person running for president,” Huckabee said. “Everyone’s being baited with this question as if somehow that has anything to do whatsoever with running for president.”

The flag has come to attention recently, after a white gunman shot and killed nine black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, last week. Pictures posted onlineshow the alleged shooter, Dylann Roof, posing with a gun and a Confederate flag. The flag is widely considered a symbol of racism.

“I don’t think [the American people] want us to weigh in on every little issue in all 50 states that might be an important issue to the people of that state but not on the desk of the president,” Huckabee said.

    The flag is a racist symbol, the people who say it is their heritage and a way to honor their relatives who died fighting for the right to own slaves, in the same breath tell black people to get over their past enslavement, beatings, rape, hanging and being sold like cattle.

    I guess huckster missed the memo about them taking down the sign of hate he apparently supports.

    The confederate flag is not a problem. Nosirree. Just because it’s a symbol of racism, hatred, and oppression, it’s only a flag.
    Now, the media going after kiddydiddler Josh Duggar, even after Jesus forgave him, is one HUGE problem facing America today!

    Huckabee is not a problem; in the scope of presidential primary GOP clown car candidates, this guy is just there for a flavor of the month; he will self deport himself out of the running as soon as financial reality starts costing him. This opportunist is in the race for his own glory and mainly in it to make money not lose it.

      If you can’t hear the racist dog whistle, you can’t understand Mike Huckabee.
