Huckabee on ‘Daily Show’: GOP has done ‘pathetic job’ of communicating (video)

In an interview with Jon Stewart on Monday, former Arkansas GOP governor Mike Huckabee elaborated on his remark last week that Republicans have done a "pathetic job reaching out to people of color."

"Republicans have done a pathetic job of communicating what conservatism does to empower people and how it helps people to move from one rung of the ladder to the next," Huckabee told Stewart. "And to be honest, some brands of conservatism don't help people make it to the next rung of the ladder."

Huckabee kicked off the "Daily Show" interview on a humorous note, saying, "I'm doing great Jon, let's just don't talk about the election."
