Mike Huckabee insists that it only looks like the White House is chaotic, and argued instead that President Donald Trump was juggling responsibilities like the chef at a five-star restaurant.
The former Arkansas governor and father of White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared Tuesday morning on “Fox & Friends” to deliver a folksy rebuke to Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who said “chaos and incompetence” prevented the administration from carrying out its duties.
“This this is a mantra that the Democrats have decided they are going to use, there is chaos in the administration,” Huckabee said. “Have you ever been to a restaurant behind the scenes in the kitchen? I mean, I’m talking about a five-star restaurant.”
“It seems like there is chaos back there,” he added. “Here’s what happens when they bring the dish out and it’s absolutely fantastic, people are saying, ‘Boy, this is amazing, this is the best I have ever had.’ But if they saw what they called chaos was actually a very careful just execution of getting it done right.”
Huckabee said Americans should dismiss the numerous leaks, tell-all books and heavy staff turnover and instead believe the president was perfectly executing his duties.
“What I think people are missing is that this is not chaos, this is an administration who has a leader who has so many things going on, is pushing so many buttons and so many things are on his table, on his plate, that frankly, his own staff has a hard time keeping up with him,” Huckabee said. “His stamina is simply remarkable.”
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt agreed: “That’s what we have heard.”

Pro-Trump conservatives ‘trading short-term political gain for long-term ruin’: columnist
Writing in The Atlantic this Wednesday, Rachel Shelden contends that Republicans are finding themselves "boxed in" after enabling President Donald Trump's conspiracy theories about mass voter fraud in the 2020 election.
According to Shelden, the current situation Republicans face is similar to the aftermath of the 1860 election.
‘NO WAY!’ Trump starts off Thanksgiving by whining about his election loss
President Donald Trump started off Thanksgiving by whining about his election loss to Joe Biden.
Biden earned a record 80 million votes, with ballots still being counted, and the president reacted to that news Thursday by insisting his loss was impossible.
"Just saw the vote tabulations," Trump tweeted. "There is NO WAY Biden got 80,000,000 votes!!! This was a 100% RIGGED ELECTION."
Twitter immediately slapped a disclaimer on his unfounded claims, which have been rejected over and over by courts and were disputed by the Homeland Security official who oversaw election security -- until the president fired him.
Trump will soon be a ‘dumpy 74-year-old wheeling around the golf course’ while awaiting ‘his next cheeseburger’: columnist
Daily Beast columnist Margaret Carlson on Thursday published a brutal opinion piece in which she danced on President Donald Trump's political grave and relished the thought of his fading into irrelevancy.
In her column, Carlson acknowledged many liberals' fears that Trump will never leave the national spotlight, but she said the soon-to-be-ex-president is more likely to be treated more like a washed-up celebrity that a political icon.
"To those worried we will never rid ourselves of Trump, watch as he shrinks before our very eyes in a Washington minute from leader of the free world to a broken-down real estate developer up to his ears in debt," she wrote. "On Monday, Trump was just another dumpy 74-year-old man wheeling around the golf course in a motorized cart wondering how long it would be until his next cheeseburger."
