On Saturday night’s “Huckabee” on the Fox News Channel, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced he would not be a candidate for the 2012 Republican nomination for President of the United States. In a strange twist, immediately following that announcement at the end of the “Huckabee” program, Fox News viewers were offered real estate mogul and potential 2012 candidate Donald Trump’s reaction.

“I’m Donald Trump and this is a special announcement,” Trump said. “Mike Huckabee is not going to be running for president. This might be considered by some people, not necessarily me, bad news because he is a terrific guy — and frankly I think he would be a terrific president. But a lot of people are very happy that he will not be running, especially other candidates. So, Mike, enjoy the show. Your ratings are terrific. You’re making a lot of money. You’re building a beautiful house in Florida. Good luck.”

    Why did the OLD PEOPLES’ News Channel give RINO Donald Trump that free publicity placement??? That was bizarre.

    Cool of Trump to speak on behalf of Huckabee. We need unity and grace. Nice work Trump!

    And thank you to Mike Huckabee for not running, I respect you more knowing you won’t be in the primaries sucking up oxygen. I like you well enough but not for POTUS.

    Huckabee is a great man, but too much of a nice guy to oppose Oblabla. We need a leaner, meaner machine.
