Promoting his Tuesday rally in Kentucky defending county clerk Kim Davis, Mike Huckabee told Fox News that the government has been more accommodating to detainees in Guantanamo Bay than Kim Davis.
If gay people want to receive a marriage license, Huckabee said, than they should wait until Election Day to vote for a new county clerk. Huckabee isn’t the only one hoisting martyrdom status on Davis.
In yet another column defending the Kentucky clerk, Fox News pundit Todd Starnes said that “perhaps one day, students of history will read not only letters from a Birmingham jail, but letters from a Kentucky jail.”
He even likened Judge David Bunning, the Bush-appointee who held Davis in contempt of court, to Bull Connor.
