Huckabee Jokes About Assassination Possibility?

Mike Huckabee spoke to the National Rifle Association on Friday and while on stage, there was noise in the background off stage about which he said, according to CNN:

“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.”

There are a lot of outrageous things being said in this presidential race — and I think it will get much worse, but this is a kind of recklessness that can’t be tolerated.
To put the issue on the table, this is a time when I fear the impact of an assassination attempt on various of our political leaders and the candidates. The impact could upend the American political system at a very fragile time.
To joke about it — and intimate the casual possibility of such a thing is unconscionable.
Huckabee should publicly and immediately apologize.
