Mike Huckabee Says New York Women Are Trashy


Mike Huckabee doesn't heart New York women -- in fact, he seems to think they are trashy.

The former Arkansas governor and potential presidential candidate has a problem with their potty mouths, apparently. In a recent interview with Iowa-based "Mickelson in the Morning" radio show, he said:

"In the South, or in the Midwest, there in Iowa, you would not have people who would just throw the F-bomb or use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting. In New York, not only do the men do it, but the women. My gosh, this is worse than locker-room talk. As we would say in the South, that's just trashy."



Huckabee says he experienced a serious culture shock when he was in New York and often heard women in the workplace using curse words. He called it "locker room talk."

New York is certainly not a delicate city, but it seemed to really throw Huckabee for a loop. He said that during a recent visit, he heard women cursing so much that he thought he was on a"different planet."

But it's what he said about women in the workplace and their potty mouths that really has him in the doghouse.

"You would not have people who would just throw the f bomb and just use gratuitous profanity in a professional setting," Huckabee said on air.

Huckabee used to work at Fox News, and on Wednesday he made sure to clarify that he wasn't referring to any former women he worked with.

Though Huckabee refutes calling New York ladies 'trashy,' he "didn't step away from comments he made about women in New York who use profanity," CNN explains.

CNN reports that Huckabee said "Frankly, I never conducted 'business meetings' at Fox News. I wasn't there to do business, but to host a show."

Huckabee received a lot of backlash about the comments, and Fox's Megyn Kelly even ribbed him on her show, 'The Kelly File.' "I do have news for you before I let you go," Kelly, said. "We are not only swearing. We're drinking, we're smoking, we're having premarital sex with birth control, before we go to work and sometimes boss around a bunch of men," Politico reports.
