Potential GOP presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) criticized women who curse in the workplace as being “just trashy” during a recent radio interview, ThinkProgress reported Tuesday.

Huckabee was discussing his trouble adapting to the “hotbed of the New York culture” on Friday during an interview on the Des Moines-based “Mickelson in the Morning” show.
