Bitter Mike Huckabee says Christian groups would rather rake in dough than see President Huckabee end abortion

Published

An angry Mike Huckabee lashed out at evangelical Christians who declined to back his struggling presidential campaign.

The former Arkansas governor and conservative commentator spoke with his erstwhile colleague Todd Starnes, of Fox News, about his disappointment with the Religious Right establishment, reported Right Wing Watch.

“As I’ve often said, ‘I don’t go to them, I come from them,’ but because of that I do understand them ,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee, who has been criticized for selling his mailing list to quack doctors and conspiracy-mongers, complained that conservative Christian leaders seemed more interested in raising money off anti-abortion hysteria and same-sex marriage fears than actually ending their legal acceptance.

“A lot of them, quite frankly, I think they’re scared to death that if a guy like me got elected, I would actually do what I said I would do, and that is I would focus on the personhood of every individual, we would abolish abortion based on the Fifth and 14th Amendment, we would ignore the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee, who is polling at 1.3 percent nationally and is usually relegated to the GOP debate undercard, said his sweeping social conservative agenda would cut into fundraising efforts, if he were somehow elected and managed to enact his campaign promises.

“A lot of these organizations wouldn’t have the ability to do urgent fundraising because if we slay the dragon, what dragon do they continue to fight?” Huckabee said. “And so, for many of them, it could be a real detriment to their organization’s abilities to gin up their supporters and raise the contributions — and I know that sounds cynical but, Todd, it is what it is.”

Huckabee said organizations that failed to back his campaign should be honest with their donors and admit they operate by “secular standards” instead of biblical principles.

“Look, we’re a club, we’re an organization,” Huckabee said they should tell donors. “We talk about prayer, but we don’t necessarily believe that it will change things.”

“There comes a time in our lives where we either believe in a great God who does great things and uses sometimes the weak to get it done, or else we don’t believe in that and we just get human might and we gather all the human resources and we live or die by the human sword,” Huckabee added.

Morning Joe drops bomb on Trump about impeachment support in states he desperately needs in 2020

Published

on

Kicking off Tuesday's "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski busted out the latest polling numbers about support for impeachment in key battleground states and let Donald Trump know he is deeply underwater.

Jumping right into it, the Brzezinski said, "Half of voters in six states that helped carry Trump to victory in 2016 say they support the House Democrats' impeachment inquiry into the president. According to the latest New York Times/Siena College poll put that support at 50 percent of voters in Pennsylvania, Florida, Michigan, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Arizona -- 45 percent say they oppose."

That's three times higher than the percentage of Americans who supported impeaching Richard Nixon during the early stages of the impeachment process.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing

Published

on

"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.

"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.

I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"

The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.

"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.
