Mike Huckabee may not be willing to recant his disgusting HIV/AIDS statements, but the presidential candidate says he’s willing to meet with Jeanne White-Ginder, whose son Ryan died of AIDS in 1990.
White-Ginder called on Huckabee to apologize for suggesting we quarantine AIDS patients. So did HRC. Speaking in Iowa today, the former Governor of Arkansas said he’d be willing to sit down with his critics.
I would be very willing to meet with them. I would tell them we’ve come a long way in research, in treatment.
I certainly never would want to say anything that would be hurtful to them or anyone else. I would have great regret and anxiety if I thought my comments were hurtful or in any way added to the already incredible pain that families have felt regardless of how they contracted AIDS.
Apparently he doesn’t read all the criticism as people’s pain.
