GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is being scrutinized for a four-word phrase he used to describe President Obama's nuclear deal with Iran.
In an interview with Breitbart, Huckabee said: "This president's foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven."

"He will take the Israelis and march them...oh god. Ok. Into the door of the oven. It's, it's just crass. ... I have not read it until this moment, and I am horrified," MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski said.
"It is a deal in which Iran will cut its installed centrifuges by more than two-thirds," John Kerry announced.
The deal, spearheaded by U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and top Iranian diplomats, still needs approval from a Republican-controlled Congress.
