In a tweet this Thursday, former Arkansas governor and current Fox News host Mike Huckabee raised a few eyebrows announcing an upcoming appearance on Sean Hannity’s show, where he said he’ll be explaining why President Trump is “eligible for a 3rd term.”
“I’ll be on @seanhannity 2nite @FoxNews at 9pm ET and will explain how @realDonaldTrump will be eligible for a 3rd term due to the illegal attempts by Comey, Dems, and media , et al attempting to oust him as @POTUS so that’s why I was named to head up the 2024 re-election,” Huckabee tweeted.

There’s no indication that a “2024 re-election” effort even exists, so it’s not clear if Huckabee is being serious or not. Either way, his tweet unsurprisingly was the subject of mockery in the comment thread that opened up beneath it.

Everyone else will be in the real world, where he won’t even get a second term.

Have you read the Constitution? Or perhaps I should start right at the beginning with “can you read”? Necessary to ask due to the high illiteracy rate among Republicans.

In other words, you’re about to make something up. 3rd term presidency should never again be uttered by any American loyal to the democracy and rule of law.

Andrew Cuomo rips Trump like never before: ‘This was the worst government blunder in modern history’
Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) on Monday accused President Donald Trump of presiding over "the worse government blunder in modern history."

"If we don't tell the truth on the reset, COVID will never end," the New York governor explained. "It will ricochet across the country. It will just bounce back and forth."
"This was a colossal blunder -- how COVID was handled by this federal government," he continued. "Shame on all of you. Six months, lives lost. Hit the reset button, yes."
Trump snaps at Jim Acosta for reminding him of coronavirus death toll: ‘Fake news CNN’
President Donald Trump on Monday snapped at CNN's Jim Acosta when he reminded the president that the novel coronavirus so far has killed 155,000 Americans.
During a question-and-answer session with reporters, the president boasted that the United States had done an "amazing" job at handling the COVID-19 pandemic, at which point Acosta interrupted him and tried to ask him about the 155,000 people who have died from the disease in just five months.
"The U.S. has so many deaths," Acosta said.
"Hold it!" Trump replied.
"So many countries around the world..."
"Fake news CNN," he said. "Hold it. We have done a great job in this country. We haven't been given enough -- not me, Vice President Pence, the task force -- have not been given the kind of credit."
