Today's best "well, actually" comes from none other than Mike Huckabee, who wants everyone to know that he has received an "overwhelmingly positive" response from Jews to his comments about the Iran nuclear deal taking Israelis "to the door of the oven."
Even Holocaust survivors and their children don't mind, Huckabee insisted in an interview with Today's Matt Lauer, adding that he would back his words even as president of the United States. Lauer reminded Huckabee that many Jews actually were offended by his language, which Lauer suggested was only used so that Huckabee would be heard "over the roar of Donald Trump." So, Lauer asked, would he really, truly, definitely, actually still say it all over again?
"Matt, we need to use strong words when people make strong threats against an entire group of people," Huckabee persisted. Watch the whole interview at Today.com, or below. Jeva Lange
