Mike Huckabee just tried to discredit Lindsey Graham with a jab suggesting he’s a closeted gay man in an interview with Laura Ingraham, according to The Daily Caller.
The remarks were made with regard to Graham’s criticism of Devin Nunes.
Said Huckabee to Ingraham: “I’m very disappointed in Lindsey. I sometimes wonder what uniform he puts on each morning when goes out to the field to play, and I’m not just talking about the partisan uniform.”

Added Huckabee: “I think to bring that kind of criticism and to call the chairman of the House Intel Committee — who is a person of integrity — to call him Inspector Clouseau, to use those kind of terms basically to diminish him, it’s very unfortunate. It’s demeaning.”
Graham joked about gay rumors in a 2010 New York Times profile: ‘Like maybe I’m having a clandestine affair with Ricky Martin. I know it’s really gonna upset a lot of gay men — I’m sure hundreds of ’em are gonna be jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge — but I ain’t available. I ain’t gay. Sorry.’
