“So Hillary Clinton is horrified by sexist and obscene language ... unless it comes from famous rappers who set it to a beat and use it to promote her presidential campaign,” Huckabee said on Facebook.

Clinton’s campaign on Tuesday announced Jay-Z would perform on its behalf during a Nov. 4 concert in Cleveland, a mere four days before voters cast ballots in the critical battleground state of Ohio.

“Jay-Z will be joined in concert by special guests to encourage unity and urge Ohioans to support Clinton by voting early or on Election Day,” her campaign said in a statement Tuesday.

Clinton has repeatedly attacked Trump for his language regarding women, but Huckabee implied the GOP presidential nominee has said nothing worse that what could be found in Jay-Z's lyrics. 

"Okay, got it. She does have ethics, they're just 'situational,'" Huckabee said.

Trump leads Clinton by about 1 point in Ohio, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls there.

Clinton’s campaign is touting a string of high-profile events featuring her most recognizable celebrity supporters ahead of Nov. 8. Get-out-the-vote concerts featuring Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Jon Bon Jovi were all announced last week.

Pop star Miley Cyrus, meanwhile, went door-to-door in Virginia on the former secretary of State’s behalf last Saturday.
