During a stop in Phoenix, Ariz., on his campaign trial, 2016 presidential contender Mike Huckabee sat down with Western Journal’s Norvell Rose to discuss a variety of topics, including his friend and supporter Chuck Norris.
When asked what his best Chuck Norris joke is, Huckabee jovially answered, “Chuck Norris doesn’t ask you to vote for Mike Huckabee; he just tells you that you’re going to. And you will.”
“What isn’t a joke,” he continued, “is the love this man has for America. I’ve never seen anybody who is so real, so authentic… This man loves God, he loves his country, he loves those who serve us in uniform…he’s just one of the most remarkable, humble human beings ever.”

Huckabee did quip, though, that while he will tell jokes that include Norris, he would never tell a joke about him, because “He’d take my head off!”
Keeping things light, Rose mentioned the charity fight former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney announced he will have with Evander Holyfield Friday, asking Huckabee whether he would step into the ring with Norris.
Not missing a beat, Huckabee answered that, after watching the extraordinary amount of money paid out for the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight, if “You put a purse of a hundred million, I’ll step into the ring with anybody. I may not last long, and I may take a dive, but for a hundred million, sign me up.”
