Former Gov. Mike Huckabee on Friday defended recent comments he made about women’s libidos, saying “it was just a colorful expression” about something that’s wholesome and God-given.
“My point was, not that I believe this, but I said the Democrats act as if women are only concerned about these reproductive issues,” Huckabee said on Fox News’s “Cavuto.” …
Huckabee told Cavuto that he wouldn’t take back his libido comments.
“No, why would I? What’s wrong with — even the word? It’s a wholesome thing. God gave us sexual drive. It’s not something dirty,” the former governor said. “It isn’t vulgar. It’s a wonderful gift from God in the context of a relationship between a man and a woman who have committed to each other as life partners. That’s a good thing. There’s nothing unholy or untoward about that.”
He said he wouldn’t let his language be filtered by Democrats.
“I refuse to let the Democrats control my lexicon. I’m sorry but I’m not going live in a world where everything I say has to be run through the filter of people who aren’t going to like anything I say. What’s the point of that?” Huckabee said.
