As soon as I read the news that Hillary Clinton has been proven right about the fact that terrorist groups would be using Donald Trump's words for recruitment videos, I wondered, how are they going to handle this over at Faux "news" land?

Well, this weekend, it didn't take long to get my answer. GOP presidential nominee (yes, he's still in the race and hasn't dropped out yet), former Arkansas Governor and Fox employee, Mike Huckabee made an appearance on Fox and Friends Saturday, and after being asked about the recent attack in Tel Aviv and using the incident to attack Hillary Clinton and various unnamed "left wing politicians" here in the United States, they asked Huckabee about the news that Trump has turned up in a terrorist recruitment video.

Guess who's name never came up during that portion of the discussion? You've got it. Hillary Clinton. Huckabee was more than happy to do more Muslim bashing and fearmongering over us "being at war with radical Islam," but Clinton's words during the last Democratic debate were never mentioned.

Good luck keeping this one buried, although they may succeed for a while with those living only in the Fox bubble.
