Mike Huckabee Tries To Smear Rep. Nancy Pelosi With Racist MS-13 Tweet
Former Arkansas Governor and failed presidential candidate Mike Huckabee tweeted a photo of five tatooed Hispanic men, whom he claimed were MS-13 and supporters of Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi of California:

Former CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien fired back, calling Huckabee a “bigot”:
Governor Huckabee, still a bigot. https://t.co/n9a4qDVxzl

Adam Davidson, a staff writer at the New Yorker, also slammed Huckabee:
I know we’re cautioned to go easy on the Nazi parallels, but this is too clear an example.
This is no different from a Nazi-era cartoon of criminal Jews.
Huckabee should be ostracized and ashamed. https://t.co/lmMzU75XKP
