Mike Huckabee: “Vain Obama” Insulted Hillary By Saying He Could Have Beaten Trump [VIDEO]

Via Mediaite:

Mike Huckabee thought that President Obama insulted Hillary Clinton more than anybody else when the 44th President alleged he would have beaten Donald Trump if the former were permitted to run for the White House again.

“What an insult to Hillary Clinton by Barack Obama to say ‘She’s a loser, I’m a winner. She couldn’t win, I would have won!’” Huckabee said. “If I were Hillary Clinton, I would be livid that the president was making those statements.”

“How vain must a person be in order to say that I would have won the election,” Huckabee wondered. “I think it’s immaterial and, you know, frankly, why would he say something like that? What point does it have?”

  • Now hush, Mikey! You’ve had your innings. It’s milk-rusks and beddy-time for you.

  • Kevin Perez

    Perhaps the huckster needs to be reminded that Hillary Clinton won by 3 million votes.

    • crewman

      But (totally not-vain) Trump said he would have actually won the popular vote if he had cared about that anyway.

      • kaydenpat

        Yes, please remind us of Trump’s humility which rivals that of our Lord.

      Mmmm. Possum.

      I’ve always wanted possums in the area–they’re fun creatures, if somewhat invasive–but we’re a bit too cold.

      • PickyPecker

        We’ve had several in the orchard just this past week. GAH!

        • Joe in PA

          The groundhogs are our biggest enemy in the garden. They go over the fence, under the fence. I don’t know how deep we have to go with that underground fence…obviously deeper than we have now. Makes gardening really discouraging. 🙁

          Oh, I think they call them wood chucks in your area (at least that’s what my MN relatives call them).

          • PickyPecker

            We have those here too. I had pretty good luck ‘discouraging’ them from being in the lawns by placing old-fashioned pinwheel stems fairly deep into the ground…..they hate the vibrations caused.

          • Joe in PA

            Plus they’re pretty! Win win. 😉

          • Oikos

            Foxes also take care of woodchucks. I put popcorn out for the foxes to eat and if a stray chuck shows up they get a second course for the meal.

          • PickyPecker

            We used to have beautiful red fox, but the coyotes pretty much took care of them. Most of the pheasants and turkey as well. 🙁

          • Paula

            hI have had a situation with a badger before. I will leave the badgers alone, thank you.

          • Lars Littlefield

            Five years ago I woke up to the site of a female badger tearing up a big hole in the vegetable garden. I left her alone. That year I was completely free of ground squirrels, gophers, moles, voles, and I think a few stray cats disappeared, too. The next year the badger was gone and has never returned. I now get field mice, but no gophers or rogerson ground squirrels (they look exactly like prairie dogs, but a bit smaller). If they come back, I’m going to trap a badger and install it bag in the vegetable garden. Much less destructive than them little critters, cute as they are. 🙂

          • PickyPecker

            Our property gets regularly hunted each year in July from the Great Horned Owls that come from the woods nearby. Pretty much cleans up all the bunnies, squirrels and field mice for a while. Simply awesome and graceful, those owls.

          • Joe in PA

            We used to have GHOs around, haven’t seen any in a while…but we have a great story about them: some snooty friends from the city (Washington) were visiting, they thought we were crazy for moving to the country (the pet chicken walking in to the house didn’t help), we were sitting on the front porch having cocktails…just about dusk…an ENORMOUS GHO landed in the field just across the road. What an amazing site.

          • PickyPecker

            Always amazing to see them. There was one on the ground outside the house a couple years ago…and I was like WTF is that? That thing was at least 3′ tall (and obviously hunting a mouse or such). Another time, I pulled into the drive after dark and spooked one which took a long, low swoop over the truck……not a friggin sound!

            YUM???

          • GayOldLady

            Oh, ground hogs are the worst. And we have a yard full of moles and voles. I’ve tried everything short of trapping them to get rid of the little buggers.

          • Joe in PA

            We’ve successfully trapped groundhogs…Have-A-Heart trap, and then released them in the woods a few miles from here. But new ones keep showing up. ;( When we first moved here we used to have a ton of voles…we got cats and the problem went away!. Unfortunately, our lazy cats got old, even the barn cat must not be interested, walking on the grass now feels like walking on sponge cake. ;(

          • GayOldLady

            I tried the cat solution early on. I had a feral cat wander up as a kitten. I took her in, had her spayed and she became an inside/outside cat. She went after the voles for a couple of years and then apparently she became bored with them, so she decided to go after the birds that nest in the redbud and maple trees behind our home. I watched her jump probably 10 feet into the sky and grab a cardinal in flight. I almost killed myself chasing her around the yard to get her to let go of the cardinal. Then I had to nurse the cardinal back to health. After finding a few more song birds and baby birds dead on the lawn I decided her outside days were over. We also used the stuff you sow into the grass that kills the grub worms, but that didn’t work either. I basically gave up.

          • Lars Littlefield

            Cats need bells on their collars to give wild birds a fighting chance.

          • GayOldLady

            I should have done that but it never occurred to me. She’s an old girl now and not really interested in outdoors much anymore. She goes out in the spring and early summer and sunbathes while watching me work in the yard, but she’s basically lost her interest in exploring and hunting. Still the birds go nuts when she goes outdoors with me and swoop her if she ventures to close to the trees.

          • stuckinthewoods

            The only thing that made a dent in our vole population was Ramik, which is like D-Con in chunks. Voles apparently like apples so I soaked the chunks in apple juice concentrate, found a burrow opening and piled them nearby lightly covered. The (many, many) voles took the bait into their larders and it was starting to have an effect just as we got kittens which caused us to stop using it. But if you don’t have to worry about a cat catching a poisoned vole, it did show signs of working. In our setting we were very plagued. What we eventually did was just stop replacing the lilies, tulips, etc. that we were trying to protect.

          • GayOldLady

            I hate to use anything that’s too toxic. I’ve tried the lawn treatments that kill grub worms, but nothing has worked. I think I’ve been defeated.

          • stuckinthewoods

            yes, I understand. We mostly gave up too. When I first moved here I searched for plants I might raise for sale so we had many victims of critters. The most hurtful was when I first came here after my partner died and I wasn’t yet aware of voles. I put his ashes in a large new bed of his favorite Rubrum lilies. No respect. (Later I read in Japan people once ate rubrums, so quite edible.) Tulips, hyacinths, etc. we’d find bits of those bulbs in the vole larders with the green Ramik pellets. Now we plant more of whatever they wouldn’t eat, poisonous things.

          • Lars Littlefield

            You can always plant loads of daffodils, narcissus and hyacinths (especially French hyacinths). They are poisonous to most rodents and if planted deep enough will eventually naturalize.

          • stuckinthewoods

            Hyacinths were eagerly eaten. When I first moved here 30 years ago I wasn’t sure I’d be around long so only planted annuals. Then after a year or so, and by then some experience of what they wouldn’t eat, I planted 20 bushels of daffodils to add to the ones already here. Planting bulbs in a lawn is one of the dumbest things I did..of so many dumb things.

          • Lars Littlefield

            That’s why I mentioned French hyacinths, they only come in and white or blue have a loose and somewhat taller infloresence than the Dutch variety. I have several acres of quaking aspen surrounding my house that are loaded with critters that like to eat bulbs. They leave the French hyacinths alone. But I live in the West. We haven’t killed off all of the natural predators that eat little mice-like creatures and other rodents . . . yet. But the French hyacinths have become an invasive species, along with the varieties of narcissus. My neighbors cattle broke through my fence two years ago and helped themselves to as many daffodil flowers and stems as they could eat. They almost died. And my neighbor was all fluffed up in his butt that I needed to compensate him for his cattle breaking through on to my property. LOL! Poor cows.

          • stuckinthewoods

            We have the relatively new predator coyote but there’s still been mountain lion near here. I do see fewer skunk, racoon, possums, etc, and also fewer little rodents. Now I’m trying to kill non-native plants I’m afraid became too happy, as did those Narcissus pseudonarcissus T. Jefferson predicted would eventually mark old house sites, so I guess I’ll take your warning on French hyacinths.
            A neighbor once threatened us with wandering cows. I let him understand he should desist.

          • Lars Littlefield

            I’m a firm believer that neighbors who keep cows all belong in fairy tales. 🙂

            I had a Dachshund that kept our yard free of subterranean critters. He would spend hours hunting and dispatching of them. And he made a nice lap-warmer too.

            You’d mentioned 12 acres of fencing so I don’t know if this would help you..but. A groundhog bothering us is trying to get under a building. I’ve read they don’t prefer to dig straight down, so I laid hardware cloth (chicken wire worked too) along the foundation wall (fence in your case) and up the side a bit (can be attached but I didn’t) and then covered it heavily with gravel. I left the metal edge ragged so when the g-hog explores the edge to try to lift it, it encounters sharp tangs. The groundhog has continued to try but hasn’t been able to lift the wire because the gravel holds it down. And it has tried. A lot. If your fencing came to the ground and then laid out on the ground my experience indicates a groundhog wouldn’t prefer to dig straight down away from what they’re trying to get under. We’re in the process of fencing our garden and I’m going to go down very little but out in a swale. I notice they seem to prefer to dig into slight rises rather than straight down, less likely to flood.

          • Joe in PA

            Thanks. Wow, good memory, the 12 acres is around the house. The vegetable garden is in another area (we have 50 acres total). It is 70′ by 70′ so also not a small proposition. ;( Thanks for the thoughts.

          • stuckinthewoods

            Our veg garden is what we’re interested in fencing, but the rest I’ve taken a laissez faire attitude about. (Veg is about 100′ x 120″, always had many gay flowers too, but getting smaller as I contemplate this fencing.) For some reason decades ago we had less problem with critters. Perhaps there hadn’t been much to attract and habituate them. Now they know.
            I was at one place out here in the country where they were raising food for charity, that is, more than casual production. Against deer they had strung a set of 2 wires, 4′ high and 4′ apart. They said deer were not jumping those two minor obstructions which surprised me. Supposedly they can’t clear both. They said it worked. We were told to fence not less than 10′, and one grower I knew went 12′. Or I’ll just buy veg.

          • Joe in PA

            Yikes, 100X120? That is huge. I try to do at least one row of gay Zinnias for cutting. And yeah, I’ve heard that about deer (the two fence trick). 12′??? Wow, I think they did that at Ambler college (and 4′ UNDER the ground). We just have a 6′, so far so good. I’ve heard deer don’t like to jump into enclosed spaces.

          • stuckinthewoods

            It sounds large until you realize how much is given over to paths, etc. We being gay, flowers and veg were mixed. But critters happily eat the flowers too. She went to 12′ because she was a rural day lily grower and deer love them, whole plant being edible, petals nice in salads, etc. We’ll fence to 9′ and extend a wire above that if we need more (really doubt it) – and that might elevate your 6′ as well. We’ll move the plants critters don’t like to just outside the fence. To a large degree I think one needs to break their feeding habit, and your 6′ sounds like a reasonable impediment to deer at least. The problem can be drought years when the stakes become elevated.

          • Hryflex

            I live in a rather dense residential area, but with sizable back yards. I had a cat who refused to come inside in the summer, preferring the little carpeted house on the back porch. She would invite her friends to dinner, including a large female skunk who was always accompanied by a juvenile possum. I’d be just inside the door in the kitchen and there the three of them would be, eating out of the same bowl. Animals are strange.

    I voted for Obama twice, Hillary always being my first choice. His comments to David Axelrod on a pod cast, remind me of his obsessive need to be on every talk show when elected in 2008. Huckabee aside , Obamas comment was not gracious or well thought out. He should keep his popularity rating high so his book sells well. Funny too how when anything controversial happened in her campaign, Mr. Teflon was either overseas or out of the press cycle. He has been a kind and loving president, this was not one of his finer comments. 66,000,000 people voted for Hill, 3 million more than her opponent.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    “What an insult to Hillary Clinton by Barack Obama to say ‘She’s a loser, I’m a winner. She couldn’t win, I would have won!’”

    Thank you for completely missing the entire point of that conversation. Why is the entire Right Wing so fucking stupid, evil, pathological liars, and masters of psychological projection.

    • Gerry Fisher

      This isn’t want Huckabee thinks. This is what Huckabee wants the lock-step Rethugican Sheeple to think.

    • MichaelJ

      Maybe I am being too dense after many days of over-indulging in food and drink, but I too have missed what you think was the point of the conversation with Obama or, rather, at least the point of Obama’s remark that he could have one the election.

      The conversation covered a lot of ground during which Obama made plenty of points other than the one Huckabee commented on. Obama acknowledged the double-standard and other obstacles that Clinton faced. His various comments about how Democrats failed to connect with certain voters and how the campaign fell into the trap of playing it safe are certainly criticisms of Clinton’s campaign. Whether those criticisms should be considered insults is a matter of opinion (as is whether or not the criticisms are valid in the first place).

      But for Obama to throw in the conversation the remark about how he could have won the election stuck me as gratuitous, vain and, most importantly not helpful in coming to an understanding of how Democratic candidates can do a better job of getting elected. And in is saying that I could have done what Clinton failed to do, it is an insult. While Huckabee is totally hypocritical for attacking Obama for being vain given the self-serving, vanity-driven leader of his own party, Huckabee does have a point.

    Seems to me President Obama was making an observation that’s usually met here with contempt, which IS VERY ironic.

    OT:
    You may have seen this joke before.

    A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She lowered her altitude and spotted a man in a boat below. She shouted to him:

    “Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

    The man consulted his portable GPS and replied, “You’re in a hot air
    balloon, approximately 30 feet above ground elevation of 2,346 feet
    above sea level. You are at 31 degrees, 14.97 minutes north latitude and
    100 degrees, 49.09 minutes west longitude.

    She rolled her eyes and said, “You must be an Obama Democrat.

    “I am,” replied the man. “How did you know?”

    “Well,”answered the balloonist, “everything you told me is technically
    correct. But I have no idea what to do with your information, and I’m
    still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help to me.”

    The man smiled and responded, “You must be a Republican.”

    “I am,” replied the balloonist. “How did you know?”

    “Well,” said the man, “you don’t know where you are — or where you are going.
    You’ve risen to where you are , due to a large quantity of hot air. You
    made a promise you have no idea how to keep, and you expect me to solve
    your problem. You’re in exactly the same position you were in before we
    met, but somehow, now it’s my fault.”

    • Todd20036

      That sums up the republicans and the democrats quite nicely.

    Oh Huckabee, you got passed over for a precious job by the very man you are defending. The truth always hurts and the fact is, whether a person considers Hillary or Donald, President Obama WOULD have been re-elected. And why is Huckster defending Hillary? He can’t even stand her. Nice diversion, tho. Huck, tell us how you really feel to be left in the dust by your white Jesus.

  • Silver Badger

    Huckabee crying for political correctness. Whoda thunk it? Simple truth, fool. President Obama could have walked away with the election with on hand tied behind his back. Michelle may have divorced him, but he coulda done it!

  • SFBruce

    Apparently Huckabee believes excessive vanity is a bad thing in a president, so he did the logical thing, and threw his support behind Trump. An actual human being might have put Obama’s comments in context, but Huckabee can’t pass up a chance to make a snarky remark.

    Hi Mikey…stopped any more investigations into your son’s history of animal cruelty?
    Just wondering.
    Clean up your own house, you corrupt loser.

  • 2patricius2

    Put a sock in it, Mike Huckster. You have been supporting a narcissistic baby bigot psychopathic liar, and you think you are so smart in calling Obama vain.

  • President Obama might have won enough electoral votes to get the 3rd term. As it is, the results were close enough in enough states that just a few more votes in the affected states would have resulted in a Hillary Clinton electoral victory in addition to the popular vote.

    Trump’s strategy did tap into “white” disaffection in some traditionally Democratic states in the rust belt – his focus on trade agreements and tariffs with a promise of “bringing back manufacturing jobs” struck enough of a chord in those states. One can accentuate the misquote of Hillary on the issue of coal mining jobs in West Virginia – where much of the media AND the Trump campaign hammered away on the lie that Hillary was going to “close all the mines” and “retrain” miners.

    Add the white supremacist support, and the Christianist Dominionists attracted by the choice of Pence as VP and their expectation that judicial nominations (1 Supreme court justice and 103 federal judgeships) that the GOP controlled Senate has held up) will result in renewed rights of CHristians to engage in religious persecution of women and LGBT people as all sorts of civil rights advances get rolled back to make America both “White” and “Christian” again.

    It isn’t just that Hillary did not get the electoral votes, the Democrats did not retake the Senate. And when it comes to those appointments, do not expect the filibuster to allow these appointments to go unfilled with the worst possible appointees.

    Once the federal courts have been corrupted, and the racists and dominionists control the justice department, there will be a lot more “change” coming that will cause harm to America and Americans. Trump will be free to make billions while letting Pence actually run things with the thugs in the proposed cabinet, and the GOP-controlled House and Senate will themselves be like kids in a candy store, doing the bidding of the top tenth of one percent and making life more difficult for the poor, the different and the downtrodden.

    I just bingewatched the second season of The Man in the High Castle over the weekend, and it looks to me like a frighteningly prophetic vision of what life may look like (with a very few differences) in the U.S after a few years of Trump.

    The descent into evil will not happen all at once, but all the signs are there.

    In the meantime, I really don’t give a damn about what Donnie is tweeting while the plans are being made to destroy the nation and the planet.

  • NO MORE GOP!

    My instant reaction on seeing his face: “Oh, Christ. This asshole again?”

  • Gerry Fisher

    He did, indeed, troll Hillary and, more importantly, the DNC. The Democrats need a bit of a goosing to get their butts in gear. He was saying–with some merit–that he has a winning formula that Democrats should emulate in the future. (I don’t know if people recall, but Wasserman-Shultz and most Dems (including Hillary very early on) in 2014 were running *against* the president’s record. They need to own the progressive agenda, move toward it, and stay steady. THAT was the point of Obama’s message.

  • GayOldLady

    Oh, PLEASE, spare me the faked concern over Hillary, you father of a dog abuser.

    • DaddyRay

      Oh the Huckster is all broken up about it, I am sure he will be uploading a YouTube later telling us all to leave poor Hillary alone

    • MΩebym

      It’s like their feigned concern for Bernie – designed to make the Democrats fight amongst themselves. They do it because it works. Every. Time.

  • kaydenpat

    Is it just me or is Huckabee not aging well? If there is any creature on earth more vain than Trump, it needs to be analyzed on one of those National Geographic channels.

  • Oh, Huckabee. Yes. I forgot. He still exists, doesn’t he. Well, it doesn’t matter.

  • Chris H.

    Since when does The Huckster have any concern for Clinton or Obama?

    • TrollopeReader

      Remember, we are now in The Antonym Era!

  • TrollopeReader

    Oh Fuxabee .. .you know vain, you know gluttony, and sloth, and all the other things that pastors rail against — yet you take to heart.

  • Bj Lincoln

    I read what the President said and did not in any way glean an insult to Hillary. I’m sure he didn’t intend to insult anyone.

  • Friday

    Every time there’s more insight into what goes on in Reverend Shower Creep’ head, the uglier his Christianism seems.

    Actually it’s just a plain fact: another Obama run would have flipped a lot of *Southern* states, and held the Rust Belt.

  • boatboy_srq

    I can just see HRC:

    “Don’t you DARE take my side.”

  • Bob Conti

    One could ask the Huckster, “What point do YOU have?”

  • SelectFromWhere

    I’m loathe to agree with this man, but he does have kind of a point–it does no good for Obama to make a statement like that and surely doesn’t help things between the Obamas and the Clintons, whom we all need to stay allies in the REAL fight against what lies ahead.

    • David L. Caster

      Maybe, but there is a measure of getting under Trump’s skin in play here.

      I believe, in fact am almost certain, that had clinton not been such a luddite and learned how to deal with her email like every other federal employee and without her own server, she would be President Elect. It was a rookie mistake to set herself up like that. As well qualified as she was to be POTUS, and given the fact that she had been through so much in her many years of public service, she should have known better. Benghazi was her—and our—undoing in more ways than one.

  • Bad Tom

    Huckabee, you have NO FUCKING ROOM AT ALL to be teaching other people manners.

    The Huckster is concerned about an insult to Hillary? Too obvious and shallow, Mike. When are you just going to go away?

  • Helen Damnation 🍑™

    “So what, who (the fuck) cares?”
    as Joy Behar would say

  • David Walker

    “How vain must President Obama be to say he would’ve won if he ran again?!” First of all, he’s right. Second of all, how vain do you have be to proclaim again and again the god told you to run for president?!

    • EdA

      Given the number of Republiscum who thought that God wanted them to run for president, their god must have a wicked sense of humor (multiple senses of the word).

  • andrew

    Dear Mike: Obama was just recognizing the fact that millions of bible believers like you do not believe that a woman should have power over men, as your “Good Book” so clearly states many times, and under no circumstances would they vote for a woman.

  • JT

    Hucksterbee: My manboobs are all aquiver to get myself noticed again.

  • Tor

    Since when did Huckabee give a flying fuck about insulting Secretary Clinton?

    • Beagle

      Kind of like that brief moment in the ’08 primary season when the R’s were talking her up for the nomination. They’ll defend her if it allows them a dig at Obama.

    I wish someone would beat huckleberry

  • EdA

    Given that Hillary DID beat the piece of trump by several million votes and except for massive voter suppression would also have won the Electoral Vote, it’s almost a certainty that President Obama would have beaten him too. Again, apart from voter suppression enabled by the five corrupt Republiscum (redundancy unavoidable) Supreme Court injustices who recognized the role of the Voting Rights Act in promoting fair elections — and trashed it.
