Mike Huckabee: If We’re Going To Impeach Trump, Then We’d Better Impeach Kamala Harris

If you thought you’d heard just about all of the ridiculous BS that Republicans can possibly spew from their pie holes, former Arkansas governor and failed GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee raised the absurdity meter to a new level of head shaking absurdity Saturday when he called for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris to be impeached after she’s sworn in on Wednesday.

 

During an appearance on Fox Business, Huckabee said Trump’s speech to his supporters on January 6 which led to the storming of the U.S. Capitol building and death of five people, was nothing more than a few innocent words and not deserving of impeachment for incitement to insurrection:

“If we’re going to impeach Donald Trump for what he said, then we’d better impeach Kamala Harris for saying the things she did last summer about the rioters and looters — and even establishing a monetary fund to get them out of jail on bail so they could get back to the riots.

“Everybody should have a turn.”

Harris did indeed mention the Minnesota Freedom Fund. It raised bail money for protesters who had been arrested in the weeks after George Floyd was killed by a Minneapolis police officer in the summer of 2020.

But to equate what Harris said with Trump’s comments is the ultimate example of a fake equivalency. The president told his supporters:

“Anyone you want, but I think right here, we’re going to walk down to the Capitol, and we’re going to cheer on our brave senators and congressmen and women, and we’re probably not going to be cheering so much for some of them.

“Because you’ll never take back our country with weakness. You have to show strength and you have to be strong. We have come to demand that Congress do the right thing and only count the electors who have been lawfully slated, lawfully slated.”

Not long afterwards, thousands of people descended on the Capitol and began trying to take over the building. They even chanted for Vice President Mike Pence to be hanged.

Now, however, Mike Huckabee wants us to believe it’s no big deal that Trump incited an insurrection and riot that killed a police officer. That alone proves that the Trump faithful are nothing by rank hypocrites and fools.
