Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted his two cents on the Democratic debate Tuesday night and they were so offensive that many felt he could have kept them to himself.

During one segment of the debate, the camera cut to CNN's Don Lemon, who introduced a question submitted via video from a young African-American man: "Do Black lives matter or do all lives matter?"

Bernie Sanders responded by repeating the statement "Black lives matter" in agreement. Martin O'Malley also affirmed it, while Hillary Clinton managed to somehow avoid saying the words verbatim. Then comes Republican candidate Huckabee, inserting his opinion with the following tweets. 

And this is a person who is in the running to be the next president of the United States. Interesting to say the least.
