Mike Huckabee, one of many potential candidates for the Republican Party's 2016 presidential nomination, claimed that "men like to go hunt/fish with other men" and "women like to go to the restroom with other women" in a speech somewhere in Iowa:
.@GovMikeHuckabee says men like to go hunt/fish with other men. “Women like to go to the restroom with other women.” #iapolitics #iacaucus(Tweet courtesy of Kathie Obradovich of The Des Moines Register)
Sadly, this isn't the first time that Huckabee has made disrespectful comments about women. At a Republican National Committee (RNC) meeting a few months ago, Huckabee made these remarks about women:
...if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing or them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it...Mike Huckabee has proven that he's opposed to the idea of women being able to make their own reproductive health care decisions time and time again, and now he's negatively stereotyping women. If you want a presidential candidate who cares about women and stands up for the interests of women, you're not going to find that candidate in the Republican primary.
