HUCKABEE: I would love to know more. What I know is troubling enough. And one thing that I do know is his having grown up in Kenya, his view of the Brits, for example, very different than the average American. When he gave the bust back to the Brits –
MALZBERG: Of Winston Churchill.
HUCKABEE: The bust of Winston Churchill, a great insult to the British. But then if you think about it, his perspective as growing up in Kenya with a Kenyan father and grandfather, their view of the Mau Mau Revolution in Kenya is very different than ours because he probably grew up hearing that the British were a bunch of imperialists who persecuted his grandfather.
So, uh, the British were a bunch of imperialists. They called themselves an “empire.” Their queen called herself an “empress.” HOW DARE OBAMA SAY THE BRITISH HAD COLONIES? HOW DARE HE LIVE IN THAT PLACE HE DIDN’T LIVE?
