Republican presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) said on Sunday’s “Face the Nation” that “be a heck of a good President” because of his decision to promote dietary supplements on informercials.
“Well, there’s gonna be a lot of criticism thrown my way,” Huckabee said. “I don’t have to defend everything that I’ve ever done. I’m not doing those infomercials obviously now as a candidate for President. But if that’s the worst thing somebody can say to me, is that I advocated for people who have diabetes to do something to reverse it and stop the incredible pain of that, then I’m gonna be a heck of a good President.”
CBS host Bob Schieffer mentioned that he had diabetes and understood the importance of diet and exercise in treating the disease before questioning Huckabee about whether he’d sold pills in his informercials.
“No, no, there was not, that’s a misnomer,” Huckabee said. “One of the elements of the plan was dietary supplements. But it’s not the fundamental thing.”
