Former Republican Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee mocked the media on “Fox & Friends” Thursday for trying to paint President Donald Trump as treasonous.
Huckabee said it was outrageous to suggest Trump’s comments amount to an impeachable offense and called the president’s critics “irrational.” (RELATED: Mike Huckabee Slams FBI Lawyer Lisa Page And Says She’s Unfit To Carry A Badge)
“That’s absurd. I mean, that is as absurd as saying that Barack Obama should have been impeached when he bowed to the Saudi king,” Huckabee said.
“Impeachment implies something that it was intentionally harmful to the United States and something that was done that is, the Constitution says, high crimes and misdemeanors. None of which has happened.”
“People are irrational,” he continued. “And I think what is just remarkable is to watch these folks sitting around their desks on national news cable shows talking to each other. Obviously not talking to the rest of America, because they we are the great unwashed and the deplorables … getting more and more irrational.”
Huckabee said news network hosts and commentators are still haunted by Trump’s 2016 victory and have become overloaded with hysteria, to the point of becoming unhinged.
“These guys have not slept since November 2016. They are overwhelmed with insomnia. They’ve become hysterical and they no longer represent rational thought. And they’re becoming a joke,” he concluded.
“They are becoming comical to watch because they’re unhinged to a level that — when you start saying that what Donald Trump did in Helsinki at a news conference is the same as 9/11, that is an insult to the 3,000 people killed. It’s just nuts.”
