MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Some of the mainstream press don't like [Melania Trump] because, A, she's married to Donald.
MIKE HUCKABEE: I haven’t noticed that. You’re kidding. You mean they don’t like her?
KELLY: Right. They don’t like her because she’s married to Donald, right? And that means we have to hate the spouse, I guess, according to American politics, and also because she -- a lot of people don't like somebody who has chosen to be a full-time mom, unapologetically. She owns that she plays a more sort of deferential role in her marriage. They have a more traditional arrangement. Donald never changed a diaper. And that actually bothers some people, I would say some feminists on the far left in this country, who don’t -- who feel like that somehow undermines the choices other women make.
HUCKABEE: Well, one of the dumbest things about this is that they're talking about something that happened over 20 years ago, and she was in her 20’s. She’s, as I say, she's not the candidate. Why don't we talk about Obama's college transcripts?
KELLY: Or why don't we talk about Bill Clinton if we're going to talk about spouses?
HUCKABEE: Yeah, or Obama's being in the chum gang when he was going --
KELLY: I don’t know what that is. Isn’t chum what you give to the sharks to make them --
HUCKABEE: No. It was back when he was in high school and college and they really smoked marijuana a lot and it was a little group of guys.
