Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee sparked backlash on social media during the Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night for a tweet alluding to dog meat. The Republican presidential candidate targeted Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described democratic socialist and one of five candidates on the stage in Las Vegas.”I trust @BernieSanders with my tax dollars like I trust a North Korean chef with my labrador! #DemDebate,” Huckabee said in his tweet, which was shared more than 6,000 times.
