Former Gov. Mike Huckabee tweeted that he has chosen to “identify as Chinese” because it will help him find favor with American corporations.
“I’ve decided to ‘identify’ as Chinese,” Huckabee tweeted Saturday. “Coke will like me, Delta will agree with my ‘values’ and I’ll probably get shoes from Nike & tickets to @MLB games. Ain’t America great?”
His quip coincides with Major League Baseball’s decision to withdraw the 2021 All-Star Game from Atlanta in response to changes in Georgia’s voting laws. Nike, Delta and Coca-Cola, which also do business overseas, have voiced objection to Georgia’s electoral changes, too.
Huckabee’s comments come at a time when hate crimes against Asian-Americans are on the rise.

Mike Huckabee set up a wedding registry when he left the Arkansas Governor's mansion in 2007 even though he was married in 1974. This was to get around the anti-bribery laws so he could receive "gifts"; mainly furniture for his house.
I find it odd that Asian hate crimes is the fight his opponents choose to bring up after this tweet. It seems like they're dodging the real meaning of this statement. Misdirection.
