On Friday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee criticized women (especially in New York, a heathen bastion of godlessness) for using profanity in the workplace. "That's just trashy," he said. On Wednesday evening, Megyn Kelly asked Huckabee to explain his remarks on "The Kelly File."

Huckabee clarified that all of his interactions with women at Fox News have been "lovely" and "delightful," and that he was really speaking about a "culture of crude" in Washington, D.C., New York and Hollywood.


"Well, I do have news for you before I let you go," said Kelly, after allowing Huckabee to defend his remarks. "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."

Huckabee responded, "Oh, I just don't want to hear that."
