Huckabee jokes about Obama ducking a gunman
Posted: 08:28 PM ET

From CNN Associate Political Editor Rebecca Sinderbrand

Watch Huckabee’s joke at the NRA Convention Friday. (starting at 0:50).

(CNN) – During a speech before the National Rifle Association convention Friday afternoon in Louisville, Kentucky, former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee — who has endorsed presumptive GOP nominee John McCain — joked that an unexpected offstage noise was Democrat Barack Obama looking to avoid a gunman.

“That was Barack Obama, he just tripped off a chair, he’s getting ready to speak,” said the former Arkansas governor, to audience laughter. “Somebody aimed a gun at him and he dove for the floor.”

Obama supports extending the assault weapons ban, limits on gun sales, and a national law against carrying concealed weapons, with exceptions for retired police and military personnel. John McCain – whose legislative record was awarded a C+ rating by the NRA in 2004, but has received a perfect score – will address the group later Friday afternoon. His speech will include remarks “on the issue of unconditional negotiation with state sponsors of terror” that aides tell CNN’s Dana Bash are a direct response to Obama’s comments earlier Friday.

UPDATE, 8:28 PM: Huckabee released the following statement regarding his comments Friday, according to the New York Times website:
During my speech at the N.R.A., a loud noise backstage, that sounded like a chair falling, distracted the crowd and interrupted my speech. I made an off hand remark that was in no way intended to offend or disparage Sen. Obama. I apologize that my comments were offensive. That was never my intention.





  1. What is Obama doing, trying to use the race card again? All politians has jokes told about them. I guess cause he “thinks” he’s all black that jokes can no longer be make about him! 🙂

  2. Huckleberry “Huck” Hound is a fictional cartoon character created by Hanna-Barbera, and the star of the 1958 animated series The Huckleberry Hound Show,

    Huckleberry was a blue dog that spoke with a Southern drawl, with a relaxed, sweet, and well-intentioned personality. The term “Huckleberry” can be a slang synonym for a rube or an amateur, and that seems to fit Huck’s personality. Most of his shorts consisted of Huck trying to to perform jobs in different fields, ranging from policeman to (ironically enough) dogcatcher, with backfiring results, yet usually coming out on top, either through slow persistence or sheer luck

  3. The fact that his immediate thought is of Obama getting shot is unsettling. Wouldn’t it be more fit of him to joke saying something like “I hope Cheney isn’t back there” since we all know what a bad shooter he is (wink wink)

  4. We assume that he was not aiming at his “friend’s” face.
