Michelle Williams Argues About Beyonce With Mike Huckabee on 'The View'

Like most people considering a presidential run in 2016, Mike Huckabee appeared on The View today to argue about Beyonce with Michelle Williams.

Yes, the former governor and Fox News host continued his talk-show tour to promote family values (i.e., his book) by slamming Beyonce.

This time, Jon Stewart wasn't there to defend the world's biggest pop star, so former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams took over the all-too-easy task of taking down Huckabee's curmudgeonly stance.

"She doesn't need to do songs like 'Partition' and 'Drunk in Love' in order to be an effective and an amazing talent," Huckabee argued. (On the plus side, this is a toned-down argument of the one in his book, in which he basically says Beyonce's music preps 12-year-olds for stripper poles.)

Williams' rebuttal, per Gawker: "As someone who has definitely come up in a group with her, I just feel like that album and those songs is that one moment where she decided to probably do some songs she's always wanted to do to shed that 'I'm a good girl...' She had some freedom and she owned it and she took it, so I was definitely offended -- I'm not the Carter spokesperson."

She even went in, ever so gently, on Huckabee himself. "To hear some of those comments that you said, I thought were very, very, very low. I respect you and this is not to throw mud and tomatoes."

To summarize: Michelle Williams is not a tomato-tossing, mud-chucking spokesperson for Beyonce.
