Why does Huck not take a moral stance on the king defrauding the people at the camp meeting with his "reformed pirate" act?
The king only took in $87.75 - too small a sum to be morally outraged over.
Such an audience deserves to be defrauded.
The king's tears were so real, Huck sympathized with the crowd's reaction to such emotion.
Huck was hungry and felt eating food bought with the $87.75 earned from the scheme was more important than being judgmental.
Huck's own morals are skewed, so he does not trust himself to judge others.
