Mike Huckabee took time out of his trailing presidential campaign to appear side-by-side with “Christian martyr” Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis, upon her release from jail on contempt charges.
The former Arkansas governor helped escort Davis out of jail alongside her lawyer and Davis’ 4th — and 2nd — husband Joe.
Huckabee posed for a picture with Kim and her overalls-wearing husband which he then shared on Twitter.
