In an interview with Breitbart.com, aspiring 2016 GOP presidential nominee Mike Huckabee went off on President Barack Obama’s proposed deal with Iran, warning, “he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”

In a wide ranging interview with Breitbart editor-in-chief Alexander Marlow, the former Arkansas governor left no doubt about how he feels about the president and his foreign policies, calling them “feckless,” before dropping the inflammatory bombshell “oven” comment invoking Nazi concentration camps and the “Final Solution.”

“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians,” Huckabee said. “By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing — this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”

Huckabee also noted that he has high favorability numbers with the American public saying, “People don’t vote for someone they don’t like. So I just got a make sure I don’t start doing stuff that make people stop liking me.”

Those favorability numbers haven’t translated to the polls, where he trails surging front runner Donald Trump, ex-Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, current Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, Florida Senator Marco Rubio, and former surgeon Ben Carson in the crowded field of 16 candidates.

The Wall Street Journal has uncovered information that one of President Donald J. Trump's HHS assistant secretaries, Michael Caputo, was plotting to deliver a super secret COVID-19 vaccine to Santa Claus performers - including Mrs. Claus and the elves - before the general public. The proposed $250 million campaign would have included performers agreeing to promote the vaccine to all the boys and girls who came to sit on their laps at Christmastime.

“This was our greatest hope for Christmas 2020, and now it looks like it won’t happen,” Ric Erwin, chairman of the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded Santas, told the Journal.

Conservative New Hampshire paper breaks 100-year tradition of GOP presidential endorsements with nod to Biden

Published

on

In it's first Democratic endorsement in 100 years, a conservative New Hampshire newspaper is breaking tradition by backing Joe Biden for president.

The New Hampshire Union Leader released a statement in their publication on Sunday defending their decision.

"There is no love lost between this newspaper and President Donald J. Trump. The Union Leader was very quickly dismissed by then-candidate Trump after we failed to bestow on him our endorsement in the Republican primary four years ago, "the statement said. "We were hopeful with Trump’s win that he might change, that the weight and responsibility of the Oval Office might mold a more respectful and presidential man. We have watched with the rest of the world as the mantle of the presidency has done very little to change Trump while the country and world have changed significantly."

Josh Holmes currently serves as a top adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). While much of the GOP's fate is on the chopping block this election cycle with closer races than anticipated and little help from the president himself, Holmes told Politico he thinks "you could have a whole bunch of scenarios play out on Election Day." The worst-case scenario for the GOP, he said, is "potentially catastrophic."
