In an interview with Jeanine Pirro Saturday night on FOX News, Mike Huckabee talked about “Trump haters” looking for any reason to “dump on” him. Huckabee was reacting to the speech the president delivered on the Charlottesville killer.
Huckabee also criticized former President Obama in his defense of Trump’s Saturday statement.
“So what is he supposed to say? Is he supposed to do what Barack Obama used to do and jump to conclusions?” Huckabe asked.
From his FOX News appearance:
MIKE HUCKABEE: Well, it seems like a lot of them are. I don’t know what they expect the president to do. At the time he made the comment, the driver of the car had not even been identified…
So what is he supposed to say? Is he supposed to do what Barack Obama used to do and jump to conclusions and make a decision like he did in Ferguson, which turned out to be totally untrue?
The president has to be careful in taking steps. I thought what he condemned was what we all could immediately condemn and that was the violence… some coward in a car drove into innocent people to try and kill them. And he condemned that. What else is he supposed to do?
Trump tweets on the driver that plowed through anti-racist demonstrators:
