ALT TEXT
DO NOT FOR DONUTS. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (right), who is vying for the Republican party nomination for the United States presidential election in November, appeared on Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update with host Seth Meyers (left). Among the major presidential contenders, only Huckabee had no record of splurging on donuts and desserts in the U.S. presidential campaign.
