Mike Huckabee was asked by Jake Tapper why he has a double standard: one for the Duggars and another for Jay Z.

Huckabee dismissed his comments about Jay Z because he said they were “about a quarter of a page in an almost 300-page book, it was a bleep, a quick reference to cultural — if people read the whole book, they’ll get the gist of it.”

According to the candidate, he had said that Josh Duggar had been wrong to molest young girls — including his sisters — by calling it “disgusting” and “unacceptable.”

“What I was standing by was the fact that there were innocent people, including his sisters and others, the victims, who were exposed, humiliated,” Huckabee opined. “And there was no sense in which their concerns and their own dignity was respected. I found that the process by which this was released, it was utterly illegal.”

“So was I standing by someone who did something wrong? No,” he continued. “I said that what he did was absolutely unconscionable, but nothing is unforgivable.”
