Mike Huckabee blasted President Obama’s executive amnesty on Thursday, saying, “People are frustrated that a president doesn’t follow the law. Nobody should be above it.”
Huckabee, appearing on Fox News’ “The Kelly File” with Shannon Bream, also criticized the “duplicity of one set of rules for the elites, one set of rules for those who are in power, and a totally different set of rules for the people” in reference to Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Shannon Bream: Well, and failure to do versus also as Marc Thiessen pointed out, he thinks a lot of people are upset because of what the president has done, these executive orders in which he as sort of grandfathered people in and granted what is essentially amnesty in a lot of cases.
Mike Huckabee: He said 23 times that he couldn’t do it. He said it to Hispanic audiences. He said, “I can’t do that. I don’t have the power. The constitution forbids me.” Then he turned around and said, “You know what, I just found out [inaudible] on the phone. So how did he go from 23 times not being able to do it to suddenly saying I can do it after all. People are frustrated that a president doesn’t follow the law. Nobody should be above it. Whether it’s Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton having all of her e-mails stored in some Denver bathroom, in a small apartment. I mean people are just frustrated because if they know that if they get pulled over been the cops, they’re going to pay a speeding ticket. If the president of the United States acts with indifference toward the Constitution, he gets away with it. If the Secretary of State and the former First Lady and the leading candidate for president among the Democrats, violates all of the law as it relates to keeping federal records, well, it’s just a political thing they’re going after. And Shannon, that’s why people are in a seething rage because they’re tired of the duplicity of one set of rules for the elites, one set of rules for those who are in power, and a totally different set of rules for the people, the working stiffs out there who every day feel like they’re taking anytime the teeth and they can’t afford to do for what kids what even their parents could do for them.
