Former Republican presidential candidate and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee took to Twitter to denounce Hillary Clinton’s recent controversial comment, in which she said that half of Donald Trump’s supporters fall into a “basket of deplorables.”

Huckabee took an unconventional approach to his criticism, composing a short poem. 

{mosads}”You know, just to be grossly generalist, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables,” Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, said at a Friday fundraiser in New York City. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it. And, unfortunately, there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, has called on Clinton to apologize for her comments. She said in a statement Saturday that she regrets speaking so generally about such a large number of supporters the Republican presidential nominee.
