Huckabee slams Natalie Portman for "Child out of Wedlock"
Mike Huckabee was not celebrating for Natalie Portman as she accepted her Best Actress Oscar on Sunday night -- he was passing moral judgments.
During her speech, Portman thanked "Black Swan" co-star turned fiance Benjamin Millepied for "the most wonderful gift," -- their baby, due later this year. Huckabee took issue with that statement, and the entire premise of her pregnancy, in an interview with conservative radio host Michael Medved on Monday.
After a set up from Medved saying that most wonderful gift should have been "a wedding ring," Huckabee slammed the star actress -- and then all single mothers.
However this is what he said about Bristol Palin when she had a child out of wedlock:
“It ought to be a reminder that here is a family that loves one another. They stuck with each other though the tough times and that’s what families do." ... Huckabee said the surprise pregnancy announcement should not affect vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s support in the conservative and religious right communities. ... “I’m grateful for the way she’s being supported by her family."
Go figure :confused:
