Endorsements from reality stars Jim Bob
and Michelle Duggar no longer appear on Mike Huckabee's presidential
According to Talking Points Memo, the
endorsements were removed sometime Monday.
On Wednesday, the Duggars, whose
Arkansas family is featured in TLC's 19 Kids And Counting,
appeared on Fox News, where they told Megyn Kelly that their oldest
son, Josh, was investigated in 2006 when he was 14 for molesting five
underage girls, four of whom were his sisters and one a babysitter.
Huckabee had defended Josh Duggar,
saying in a
Facebook post that good people “do regrettable and even disgusting
things.” He also scolded “blood-thirsty media” for its
role in reporting the details.
Last year, Duggar and his mother led a
successful campaign to defeat an LGBT protections measure in
Fayetteville, Arkansas. Both claimed that such measures jeopardize
the safety of children.
In Wednesday's interview, Michelle
Duggar repeated her attacks on transgender people.
“I think that protecting young girls
and not allowing young men, and men in general, to go into a girls'
locker room is just common sense,” she said.
