Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, addressing the Human Rights Campaign this weekend, had some choice words for Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee over his support for Kentucky court clerk Kim Davis.

“It can still be really hard to believe that” it gets better for LGBT people, said Clinton.

“Especially when you turn on the TV,” added Clinton. “And you see a Republican candidate for President literally standing in the courthouse door in Kentucky calling for people to join him in resisting a Supreme Court ruling, celebrating a county clerk who is breaking the law by denying other Americans their constitutional rights.”

Although she didn’t reference Huckabee by name, it’s obvious that she was speaking about the former Arkansas governor, who was also a once a Baptist preacher.
