Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee on Sunday asserted that Democrats who say they pray for the country are “less than sincere.”
During an appearance on Fox & Friends, Huckabee said that he doubted House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) when she said that she prays for President Donald Trump.
“You know, I don’t want to be cynical about this but I just find it a little disingenuous on the part of some of these Democrats whose party took God out of their own convention,” Huckabee opined, “for them to now talk about how they’re praying about [impeachment] and this is all a matter of spirituality.”
“This is a sheer political move on their part,” he continued. “They don’t like Donald Trump. I think they hate him and they’re showing it.”
Huckabee added: “And for them to say that this is something that they engaged in after much prayer, I find that a little hard to believe and quite a stretch. But if it’s true then I’m glad their prayer life is finally getting back into sync.”
Huckabee, an ordained Baptist minister, sarcastically said that Democrats “may even be able to pray for the country and pray that it does better.”
Fox News host Rachel Campos-Duffy then slammed Democrats for “taking God out” of the oath of office.
“Yeah, I just think it’s less than sincere,” Huckabee agreed, “for them to be talking about how much they’ve been praying about this. I’m not even sure why they included that language in their discussion.”

‘The floodgates are open’: Bolton bombshells may force GOP senators to approve impeachment witnesses
The leak of John Bolton's new book may force Senate Republicans to agree to additional testimony in the impeachment trial.
The former national security adviser revealed that President Donald Trump explicitly tied Ukraine aid to an investigation of Joe Biden, and GOP sources told Axios that new evidence would be enough to convince Republicans to approve witness testimony.
Bolton's book, "The Room Where It Happened," due out March 17, claims Trump told him "he wanted to continue freezing $391 million in security assistance to Ukraine until officials there helped with investigations into Democrats including the Bidens," according to the New York Times.
Born in Auschwitz, survivor says stories of atrocity must be told
Her mother was so malnourished that the Nazi camp guards did not even know she was pregnant.
"She didn't show very much at three months, she didn't show very much at nine months, either -- I was so little, I was just one pound at birth," says Angela Orosz Richt, a survivor of Auschwitz, who was born in Nazi Germany's most infamous death camp.
She was born on December 21, 1944, just weeks before the camp was liberated -- and six months after the Nazis deported her mother from Hungary to the camp in occupied Poland, where they killed over 1.1 million people, mostly Jews from across Europe.
Follow the money on impeachment: Trump bought off the McConnell and the rest of the GOP jury — and hints at bigger tax cuts
Republican senators are making millions off of Trump’s tax cuts — and will repay him by betraying their oath.
It's long been obvious that Republican senators have little interest in serving as impartial jurors in the impeachment trial of Donald Trump. While there is a raft of motivations for such historic perfidy — with several GOP senators politically benefiting from some of the same corrupting influences — one under-examined, non-Russian reason is personal greed.
