Huckabee to Obama: You Called Beyoncé Embarrassing, So Why Listen?

By  |  0 Comments

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has spent most of his time since awayImage obama-beyonce-300x225.jpg from elected office as part of the  Fox News culture police.

Huckabee is big on Christian values and folksy chat, which prompted him to criticize Obama for allowing his daughters to listen to Beyoncé. Now Huckabee is clarifying those comments, explaining why he has issues with the singer.

Huckabee calls  Beyoncé  “a wonderful talent,” but says “My point is, she doesn’t have to do some of the things that she does in the lyrics, because it’s not necessary. She has nothing to make up for. She’s an amazing talent.”

Huckabee notes that it was President Obama who actually said that the mega-star’s lyrics embarrassed him.

“My point was, even in speaking about the Obamas — and I said about them in the book, they’re great parents. But it was President Obama in an interview with Glamour who said that some of the lyrics he won’t listen to with his daughters because it embarrasses him. If it embarrasses you then why would you possibly think it’s wholesome for your children to put it into their heads?”

Huckabee then said the mental images kids consume are just as important as their physical nourishment.

“If you’re very concerned about what happens with your children — and the Obamas are. They’re great parents. They’re careful about making sure their kids get a lot of vegetables and eat right. That’s terrific. But what you put in your brain is also important as well as what you put into your body and that was my point based on what the president, himself, said.”

During  a meet and greet at St. Jude’s Hospital in Memphis last year, the first lady mentioned “hanging” with Beyoncé as a favorite memory.

“I enjoyed meeting the Pope, visiting the Vatican. It was really cool going to a state dinner at Buckingham Palace with the Queen of England …I also got to hang out in the beehive at a Beyoncé concert,” she said. “Oh, my stars!”
