Huckabee to Megyn Kelly: I Wasnt Disparaging Women, I Was Trashing Phony War on Women | MediaiteFox News host Mike Huckabee sat down with colleague Megyn Kelly on Friday to clear the air about his controversial comments on birth control, saying that he was saying nothing disparaging about women or access to birth control, and was simply going after what he called the canard of the "war on women" Democrats have been going on about for years.Kelly grilled Huckabee a little, bringing up criticisms that he completely misrepresented the Democratic position that people need birth control for medical issues and so they can be responsible. Huckabee made it clear that he's not opposed to giving women access to birth control, "it was about Democrats and this phony war on women that they have pretended Republicans have."Kelly brought up a number of health reasons why women need birth control, and told Huckabee people just don't like the insinuation birth control means someone is "controlling" women's bodies. Huckabee insisted he was not trying to put down women, because he believes they're "equals to men," and he took a shot at the reporters who "tried to reduce this entire issue to a tweet."Watch the video below, via Fox News:[photo via screengrab]- -Follow Josh Feldman on Twitter: @feldmaniachttp://www.mediaite.com/tv/huckabee-to-megyn-kelly-i-wasnt-disparaging-women-i-was-trashing-phony-war-on-women/
