Huckabee: Don't Pretend Trump Voters 'Are Stupid, They're Angry'

Huckabee admonishes the 'establishment' to avoid a brokered RNC Convention.

Former Governor Huckabee appeared on Fox and Friends this morning to admonish his party that a brokered convention will be disastrous for Republicans. Steve Doocy asked,

After last night, will the Republican Establishment finally get behind Donald Trump who now seems unstoppable on the Republican side?

All three of the Fox Friends questioned failed Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee about the Trump freight train that can't be stopped at this point. Huck's daughter, Sarah Huckabee-Sanders is now a part of Donald's campaign team. Always the jokester, Huckabee noted that

'Huckabee-Sanders is not a proposed ticket, just want you to know that.'

That got the giggling triumvirate of dunces really chuckling. He refers to the establishment as 'them,' which is rather hilarious given his job at Fox 'News.' He explains the current situation:

HUCKABEE: If you want to oppose Donald Trump, do it. But don't pretend that somehow, that all these voters who have gone out and voted for him are stupid, they're not stupid. I'll tell you what they are. They're angry, and they're angry at the very establishment who are going nuts that Donald Trump is doing so well.

Like everyone in the GOP, they are absolutely clueless as to why people are so 'angry' at the establishment. They blame some sort of mystery bogeyman, knowing full well that they are the very same people who broke the government, causing people to hate government. Donald Trump is the end product of years of wealth worship and obnoxious hate-spewing, but this guy is a loose cannon who is much tougher to manipulate than their dream candidate, Marco Roboto.

Huckabee of course, admits absolutely no culpability for this current GOP conundrum. He warns that people need to respect the selection process and get behind whichever candidate emerges victorious, even Trump. Since he was once a pastor and considered an Evangelical himself, the new blonde host and self-professed Christian, implored Huckabee to explain why these angry Republicans could choose Trump over a real Evangelical (nut job).

AINSLEY EARHARDT: I was shocked that Donald Trump is getting the Evangelical vote. There's an editorial in the Washington Post saying that Evangelicals are putting faith aside because they're just sick of losing. What do you make of all that?

Huckabee minimized the Ted Cruz (three state) victories from Super Tuesday. Cruz's predictions of his dominance in the 'SEC States' never came to fruition. He also made reference to the angry voters with high expenses, especially education. Naturally, he completely disregards his own record of raising college costs.

An important reason for the magnitude of (SAU) tuition and fee increases was the state’s continuing failure to adequately fund higher education. Governor Mike Huckabee and the legislature in 2005 provided the largest increase for higher education in a decade.

Huckabee believes that Trump was softer on Paul Ryan's direct attack on his racist proclivities than Ryan was on the Donald. He then apologized for Trump's David Duke remarks with Jake Tapper by saying,

I don't know what he heard in his earpiece, cuz I wasn't there. Donald Trump is not some kind of racist bigot.

He clearly knows that the billionaire bully was lying when Trump told Tapper,

'Just so you understand, I don't know anything about David Duke. I don't know anything about what your even talking about White Supremacy or White Supremacists.... I know nothing about David Duke. I know nothing about White Supremacists.'

If this is true, Donald might be rather senile, as he forgot his own statements made in a NY Times Op Ed from 2000.

The GOP's voter dissatisfaction problem, according to Huckabee, is the donor class. Follow the money, he advises. Meanwhile the Huckster gladly accepted money from the most loathsome propaganda machine ever created. It sure seems like he's going to endorse Trump any day now and pretend he's not one of 'them,' the dreaded 'establishment.'
