Gravy boat Jesus Mike Huckabee walks that fine line of being folksy and just being plain old despicable. His 15 minutes have been on snooze for quite some time now, and his only way to remain relevant is sucking up to Trump, preferably via Twitter.
The former governor of Arkansas may not be nearly as insane and juvenile as the guy we just elected to hold the nuclear codes, but he’s equally obnoxious and ill-informed.
Huckabee slammed House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for her having the unmitigated gall of wondering if a guy with absolutely, positively NO experience whatsoever in public service is now heading HUD. After all, his only experience is that he’s black and once lived in a city. Trump can’t be racist when some of his best friends are black, right?
That’s so cute–Huckabee thinks calling out incompetence and inexperience equals racism. Twitter made sure to take him to school.
The formula for becoming a member of Trump’s cabinet is quite simple: you must have either sucked up to him hard and you must be a shady billionaire with not an iota of experience in the very department you aim to head. Carson clearly conformed to the former of the two.
