Republican Mike Huckabee responded to an offstage noise during his speech to the National Rifle Association by suggesting it was Barack Obama diving to the floor because someone had aimed a gun at him.
Hearing a loud noise and interrupting his speech, Huckabee said: “That was Barack Obama. He just tripped off a chair. He’s getting ready to speak and somebody aimed a gun at him and he—he dove for the floor.”
There were only a few murmurs in the crowd after the remark.
Or as another blog puts it: “It’s not as bad as that suggests but it’s bad enough to probably keep him off the ticket. Fortunately.”
