If Mike Huckabee runs for President in 2016, he might not win Beyonce and Jay Z’s votes. In a newly published excerpt from his upcoming book “God, Guns, Grits and Gravy,” the onetime Arkansas governor and former cable news host suggests that Jay Z acts like Beyonce’s pimp.

The politician reflects on the power couple’s sexy performance of “Drunk In Love” at last year’s Grammy Awards, likening it to watching “foreplay.” Huckabee writes, “My reaction: Why? Beyonce is incredibly talented – gifted, in fact. She has an exceptional set of pipes and can actually sing. She is a terrific dancer – without the explicit moves best left for the privacy of her bedroom.”

He continues, “Jay-Z is a very shrewd businessman, but I wonder: Does it occur to him that he is arguably crossing the line from husband to pimp by exploiting his wife as a sex object?” Wow. Beyonce and Jay Z’s Grammys performance was certainly provocative, but was it exploitation? Did the rapper really cross the line and become Beyonce’s “pimp,” as Huckabee says? Check out the video below, and tell us what you think about Huckabee’s controversial comments.
