Huckabee Staffer Blocks Cruz from Stage at Davis Support Rally

Huckabee Staffer Blocks Cruz from Stage at Davis Support Rally

As reported here on Conservative Intel, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis was released from prison yesterday after being imprisoned for her refusal to issue licenses for gay marriage.

Presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz went down the jail where she was being held to rally in support of Davis, but then she was unexpectedly released. The Huckabee campaign apparently tried to make the best of it.

Rachel Maddow, of all people, aired a strange video clip – which you can view here – of the event in which Ted Cruz appeared to be trying to get past a staffer to get somewhere, but is physically blocked.

Maddow’s show was able to discover this little tidbit explaining what happened in a story on the event from The New York Times:

When Mr. Cruz, who met with Ms. Davis, exited the Carter County Detention Center, a throng of journalists beckoned him toward their microphones, but an aide to Mr. Huckabee blocked the path of the senator, who appeared incredulous.

It’s amusing and unfortunate what happens when what could have been a solidarity rally in support of a legitimate cause instead becomes a photo op for one presidential candidate at the expense of the other. But that’s how the game is played.

  1. Mike is a stand up guy and this article tries to taint his reputation. Sorry Cruz got blocked in the traffic and commotion. Try not tear down the house in a temper tantrum fit disguised as journalism. Blessings on Cruz as my senator and thank the Lord he was there. He’s my senator though and I need him doing the job I elected him to do as well. If Huckabee becomes president it will be so much sweeter having Cruz in office. If Cruz becomes president, it will be at the expense of a man of God who could have done the job with Godliness and excellence.

    • The situation just gives the impression that the event was more of “Look at me I’m Mike Huckabee” than support of Kim Davis. I don’t care that they got the permits and paid for the stage. He hurt himself in the process.
      I do agree wholeheartedly with you on Senator Cruz. I also consider him MY senator. I cannot stand John “Wayne Mc” Cornyn, whom I will never vote for again. He is nothing more than a McCain clone.

      • Huckabee is a phony snake oil salesman,and a shameless self promoter. He was part of a whisper campaign with McCain against Romney. He poisoned the well with all the Evangelicals and Southern Baptists. Pss pss “He’s a Mormon you know” “They are a cult” “He’s not a real Christian like me” and we ended up with John McCain as our candidate. McCain then totally tanks and blames Sarah Palin for his loss ,when she was the only real reason to vote for him. Romney could have beaten B.O. in 08 but the damage was done and they still didn’t show up in 2012 and we ended up with African president. Thanks in part to that squirrel eating, shit kicking, gomer pyle douche bag from Arkansas!

      • It may have had some of “look at me I’m Mike Huckabee” but it was because he supported Kim Davis and our religious freedoms. Again, it wasn’t Huckabee that blocked Cruz. When he pastored here in my home town and started the first Christian TV station, it was out of his passion and love for Christ, nothing else. He’s running for president with the same motivation. I love the man’s wisdom and spirit and obedience to Christ. He’s a servant. He serves Christ. It’s disheartening when those who know him not ascribe to him attributes that are not true. He’s not running for himself. He’s running for you and me and God. He’s a man of God. Anything else told about him is not in keeping with his character and love for God which are his priorities in life.

        • I do appreciate your undying admiration, but he is not running for you, me and God, he’s running for Mike Huckabee. I am not questioning his faith, just his motives. He, like Bush, Christy and most of the rest, they are all professional politicians. That is precisely why Trump, Carson and Cruz are doing so well.
          There is a poster with a photograph of a farmer with the caption, “This country was built by men in denim and is being destroyed by men in suits.”

    • I SEE THIS DIFFERENTLY, I WAS A FAN SOMEWHAT OF HUCK, NOT ANY MORE, THAT WAS DIRTY POOL AS THEY SAY. HE KNEW THAT CRUZ WAS THERE,AND WHY,,, BUT HUCK HAD TO HOG THE “SHOW”,, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT HUCK, I NOW SEE RIGHT THRU YOU,,, I AM ALSO A CHRISTIAN, AND I CAN SEE THRU THIS WOMANS “GRAND STAND” AND MELA DRAMA! CRUZ IS A GENTLEMAN, OR HE WOULD HAVE INSISTED, TO BE ON THAT STAGE,,, HUCK IS THE ONE WHO LOOKED FOOLISH UP THERE MAKING HIS BIG ” I WILL TAKE HER PLACE IN JAIL” STAND,,, WHAT A JERK, HE KNOWS THEY DON’T DO TRADE OFFS IN A JAIL SCENE~~!!! I SMELL A PHONEY AND A WOMAN WHO HAD HER 15 MINUTES OF “FAME” / NOT.
      I’M LIKIN CRUZ MORE AND MORE! AND CARSON!

      • Janice, please don’t let this Huck smearing article taint what you’ve come to know about Huck. What is discouraging is that this woman was locked up at all, and only two candidates, one holding office, even came to her aid. They should be applauded, not berated. God bless Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz!

      • And I’m with you, I love Ben Carson too. We’ve been blessed to have such a strong showing of men of God who are willing to run for office and be bashed because their love of God and country is greater than themselves.

      • NO ONE “NEEDS” TO SUPPORT PLURAL MARRIAGES, IF YOU MEAN HOMOSEX PHONEY MARRIAGES, IT IS A SIN AND IF YOUR A TRUE BIBLE BELIEVING CHRISTIAN, YOU KNOW IT. I AM NOT FOR GRANDSTANDING LIKE THIS WOMAN HAS DONE,, SHE SOUNDS ACTUALLY A BIT RETARDED,, AND PHONEY GUSHY!

        • ‘This woman’ tried to do what was right. She was put in jail for doing it! What would you feel like if you were thrown into a jail? huh?

        • STOP insulting this woman! She will stand before the face of God and be in His good favor— way before any of us will!—- Could you do what she did? Go to jail for what is right?

          She’s a better person than me. I don’t know if I could have done that; Gone to jail like that!

          God bless you Kim and thanks for being such an inspiration to most of us!

    • PERSONALLY, I AM GLAD THIS WAS BROUGHT TO OUR ATTENTION,,,, OR WE WOULD NEVER HAVE KNOWN HOW PUSHY HUCK IS!

      • Including our words “Thanks in part to that squirrel eating, xxxx kicking, gomer pyle xxxxxx bag from Arkansas!” I didn’t repeat this, I just copied and pasted from your post. It’s too degrading to repeat. What we do in life certainly does determine our eternity. Judging God’s servant with bitter hatred and harshness might be a mistake. God is watching us this very second. He’s sees those secret compromises we make when no one’s looking and we say to ourselves “God doesn’t see.” He also sees the ones we make on here when we think no one matters who we are saying these things too. You will give an account for your words to Jesus, who is his Lord.

  2. Exactly right Ferd. Cruz is a good man and so is Mike and so is Ben Carson. They’ve all got God’s heart and love for America. Each is motivated by their faith in Christ which is refreshing.

  3. Pray for God to use each candidate who loves the Lord for God’s own glory and for the good of our nation. May the Lord make a place for each one so His representatives will grow in American politics.

  4. Saw that.. It was online I think. Cruz could not get on and I saw someone talking to him…… I am surprised Huck, that you did that…. Terrible…. GO CRUZ!~~~~~
