Mike Huckabee compared the Clinton’s actions to “the kid in the neighborhood who is always breaking windows or stealing a pie from the window and people just end up saying, you know, ‘That’s just little Billy. That’s just the way he is.’”
Huckabee, appearing on “Morning Joe” Thursday explained he doesn’t “think she gets away with this one because there’s just too many strings out there.”
Joe Scarborough: Try to answer the question that we’re trying to figure out, why would the Clintons do what the Clintons have done over the past four, five, six years when they knew that Hillary was going to be running for president? We don’t understand the emails. We don’t understand the servers. We don’t understand the president getting $550,000 from countries that had business before the State Department or entities that did. In the most nonpartisan way possible for our Democratic friends watching today, could you explain this pattern of behavior as a guy from Arkansas that has known him for nearly half a century?
Mike Huckabee: Joe, the best way to say it is it’s like the kid in the neighborhood who is always breaking windows or stealing a pie from the window and people just end up saying, you know, ‘That’s just little Billy. That’s just the way he is.’ And honestly, I think that people are so used to Clintonesque behavior, but this isn’t the 90s anymore. And I think people will hold Hillary to a standard of right and wrong that they haven’t. I mean look at what happened to the ascent of Bill Clinton during the presidency and after and there’s been this sort of attitude of shrug the shoulders and say, ‘It’s just the Clintons.’ But I don’t think she gets away with this one because there’s just too many strings out there and it’s really coming down to where a lot of American people are saying, ‘Are there two sets of rules, one for the Clintons and one for the rest of us?’ Even if you’re a Democrat, a different set of rules. That’s the problem.
