WATCH: Jon Stewart's Brilliant Takedown of Huckabee Without Saying One Word
It's a term that gets thrown around frequently, but Mike Huckabee's recent outrageous comments suggesting President Obama's Iran deal was sending Israelis "into the oven" has actually left the normally verbose Daily Show host speechless. Its rare that a politician is so manifestly dunderheaded and offensive simply playing their string of comments back-to-back is enough to solicit laughter but Huckabee's awkward views of Judaism and Israel have done just that.
Christopher Hitchens once quipped that "Christian Zionists support Israel like the rope supports the hanging man", and nowhere is this perverse arrangement more apparent than when a portly preacher from Arkansas says he's allowed to speak for Israel because he's been to a trip to Auschwitz.
This isn't the first time Huckabee has made light of the holocaust. He told a radio host in 2006 that his 100-pound weight loss was due to his "staying in a concentration camp".
It's a truly amazing series of vulgar half-thoughts and war mongering posturing on Huckabee's part. Watch the clip below:
