The day after hosting conservative guests, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, the liberal ladies at The View had a bone to pick with their guests. One by one, each host went on a tirade against both guests, after Mike Huckabee told a conservative outlet some less than flattering comments about The View hosts’ tone.
Wednesday on The View, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father, former Governor of Arkansas Mike Huckabee, spent the entire last half of the show fielding questions about Trump from the liberal hosts. But The View hosts never got their “gotcha” moment, as the pair always had a rebuttal for the panel’s heavily loaded questions. The White House Press Secretary even called out the media for using reports to “editorialize” rather than give the American people“facts,” and mocked the media’s persistence at harping on certain issues.
The feminists get very upset when conservatives get too literal and accuse abortion clinics of killing humans. They only "provide health care." Bronwyn Isaac at the feminist site Bustle railed against Mike Huckabee, who compared taking down Confederate statues to tearing down abortion clinics "because I find them offensive." Confederate statues honor a "brutal history of violence and enslavement," and abortion clinics aren't violent or brutal...at all?
Do you remember when TBS was a nice, family-friendly channel? Not anymore. Last week, on premiere week of “The Guest Book,” Story Two depicted Christians assaulting a woman to force her into baptism and, on the August 10 episode of “The Guest Book” Story Three, they attacked conservatives and pro-lifers, portraying them as both liars and hypocrites.
On Friday morning, Daily Kos founder and publisher Markos Moulitsas faintly -- very faintly -- praised Republicans for their straightforwardness while damning them for their supposed hostility to political freedom. The post’s headline: “Republicans are totalitarians, and they’re being more honest about it every day.”
Following former Cruz adviser Amanda Carpenter’s emotional interview Tuesday afternoon denying smears being perpetuated about her being involved with her former boss, The Lead host Jake Tapper grew visibly frustrated as Trump senior adviser and Mike Huckabee’s daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders repeatedly denied any role the campaign had to the point that Tapper unsuccessfully asked if she’s “ashamed” of what’s happened.
In a column posted last Monday, two days before the San Bernardino massacre, Heather Digby Parton warned of Americans with “violent desires” who might find “inspiration” to stage mass-casualty attacks not in jihadist propaganda, but in rhetoric used during “a Republican presidential debate.”
Parton linked the fatal shootings at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs to remarks by GOP presidential candidates and declared that those politicians “should have paused before they…exploited [the Planned Parenthood sting videos] for political gain. After all, gory illustrations of dismemberment and mutilation are the propaganda stock in trade of our most hated enemies. They are considered the gold standard for terrorist recruitment. You would think mainstream American politicians would think twice about going down that road…But they don’t.”
I turned on MSNBC this morning in the admittedly masochistic hope of seeing Melissa Harris-Perry, only to find Harry Smith--of all people--hosting continuing coverage of the Paris attacks and related issues.
After running clips of Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Mike Huckabee questioning the admittance into the US of Syrian refugees, Smith immediately displayed on screen and read the passage of Matthew 25 that begins "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat . . . I was a stranger and you invited me in," etc. Smith then turned to the Rev. Jacqui Lewis, pastor of the hyper-liberal Middle Collegiate Church in NYC's East Village, and asked this hyper-leading question: "is this as important a piece of the New Testament as exists?" Surprise! Lewis agreed that it "absolutely" is.
After GOP businessman Donald Trump hosted an episode of NBC's long-running Saturday Night Live program -- which drew the show's highest ratings in four years -- the network has decided to give other Republican presidential candidates “equal time” to match the 12 minutes Trump appeared during the Nov. 7 edition of the show.
Mike Huckabee might be down in the polls, but he's still up to throwing a good political punch.
On this evening's MTP Daily, Chuck Todd suggested, by way of advocating the admission of Syrian refugees, that the US is better than Europe at "assimilation." Retorted Huckabee, speaking of one of the Boston bombers, "he really assimilated, until he blew up the Boston Marathon with a pressure cooker." Boom!
On the October 27 Hardball, anchor Chris Matthews and MSNBC contributor Michelle Bernard took turns denouncing GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee as an anti-Semite. Their sole piece of evidence for the claim: Huckabee lamenting that Hillary Clinton regularly corresponded via email to longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal, but she didn't communicate with Amb. Chris Stevens prior to the Benghazi attack.
During Saturday Night Live’s Weekend Update fake news segment, co-anchor Colin Jost compared Governor Mike Huckabee with pedophile Jared Fogle following the Republican’s criticism of the GOP debate. The SNL cast member proclaimed “Mike Huckabee was criticized during the debate when he tweeted that he trusts Bernie Sanders with his tax dollars like I trust my North Korean chef with my labrador. And I just want to say I trust Mike Huckabee with a joke like I trust Jared with my laptop.”
