Mike Huckabee: The Press Has Become The Predator

Todd Starnes writes for Fox News:

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was a guest on The Todd Starnes Show on Wednesday – and he had some choice words for the Mainstream Media and the purveyors of fake news.

“The issue in America is not that the press is under assault. The issue is the press has become the predator,” Huckabee told me.

He singled out CNN contributor Ana Navarro who accused President Trump of inciting violence against journalists after he shared that now-infamous Trump/CNN/Wrestling meme.

“Anyone who took that seriously, really does need some therapy – I’m talking months on the couch,” he said. The fact CNN’s journalists have been exposed for what they truly are — a bunch of third-place partisan hacks.

    Just because you are perpetually butt hurt does not mean there is a predator.

  • Dutchlander

    The press is the predator? No sweetie… the one who brags about grabbing women by the pussy – that’s your predator right there.

    • Tawreos

      In the GOP if it can’t happen personally to them it doesn’t matter.

    • Rambie

      It’s all projection with the GOP’ers

      • (((GC)))

        It’s rich how he writes about “predators” for an established Republican propaganda machine pretending to be a news organization.

        • Rambie

          It’s so rich, they’re considering another tax cut for the 1%

          • (((GC)))

            Like the tax cut disguised as a Republican “health care plan” that would KILL millions of Americans so that a few hundred ultra-rich families could buy a third or fourth vacation home, or an extra private jet, or squirrel away even more money into offshore tax havens?

      Don’t forget when Huckabee fantasied about being in the high school girls locker room when he trashed Trans students.

      Sick perv.

  • bkmn

    Send in the clowns…

    • Christopher

      …don’t bother. They’re here.

  • Tawreos

    Mike, are you jealous of CNN because you think they are third place partisan hacks and you have yet to get as high as third?

  • boatboy_srq

    Huckster is so glad he doesn’t live in the antebellum paradise for which he continually pines. 19th century political journalism was brutal: nothing in living memory compares.

  • Christopher

    So, tell me about your animal killing son. Did he get “months on the couch” to correct his obvious psychopathic tendencies?

    More likely, you just patted him on the head and told him that he’s doing God’s work.

    • ted-

      I forgot all about that. Sick hypocritical bastard.

  • Mike C

    Good because I want my press with claws and bite.

  • Marides48

    The lying liar says what?

      For the win lol!

    ‘If you quote Trump verbatim you’re lying!’

    Every current and former GOP pol.

    • (((GC)))

      “Don’t you dare lie about me by quoting my own words verbatim!”

      – lots of Greedy Old Party pols, religious purveyors of hate, etc., etc.

  • Natty Enquirer

    Turn on the spotlight and watch the angry rats scurry away.

  • joe ho

    Christer faux martyrdom syndrome.

    Religion is an illness. Together we can find the cure.

    • ted-

      I heard holding them under water for extended period of time can cure any religious illness. A helping hand, anyone…?

  • kaydenpat

    And anyone who took Kathy Griffin’s joke seriously should get therapy too then. We can all play this game, Huckaber.

  • The_Wretched

    Someone posted a link to I think a BBC guy reporting on the G20 a day or two ago. It was amazing how well it recited Trump’s problems and how they impact the US. We do not see that kind of reporting here. Instead, we have Huckabee and others making threats and trying to lock down the media so we don’t get coverage that reflects reality.

    • bambinoitaliano

      That’s what the fascist regime does back in the days before internet and social media. These old farts still think they can shut down any information from flowing freely.

    • clay

      We see too many talking heads and not enough reporters.

  • OdieDenCO

    the press has always, when they do their job been predators. and you mike huckabee are chum

  • bambinoitaliano
  • Max_1

    Dear Gov. Huckabee,
    The press is not your enemy.
    Support the First Amendment or be cast a TRAITOR!

    • -M-

      Actually the press is his enemy (and Trumplthinskin’s), but only because they choose to be America’s enemy.

  • JWC

    Mr Huckabee need to understand the reason on a free press ( i fully believe GOP wants to attack the “free” part of that) The Free press is to inform the public of events that occurr that are of interest to the general public Much asthe press would become more focussed on a major and timely event, generally it reports the news. When one segment starts generating events of a certain nature then the new focuses more there .Not a witch hunt mr Huckabee its your groups fucking up so much

  • Bad Tom

    Well, Mr. Huckabee, you would know about third place partisan hacks.

  • Derrick Johns

    Huckabee is full of Arkansas hog poop. He’s just frustrated at seeing his daughter fall to pieces every few days on national television.
    Well, as folks on this blog told me about Spicer a few months ago, “She chose her job.”

    • bambinoitaliano

      Daddy has to foot the bill for therapy sessions. He is not down with that.

    • JWC

      when you constantly defend a prick in time you might resemble one

  • DisqusD37

    That the best ya got, Huckabee? You sold your soul (provided you were born with one).

  • safari

    Sarah didn’t fall far from the tree.

    • Michael

      Unfortunately neither did the dog.

    • Guest

      But it looks like she fell out of a tall one.

  • Michael

    If he’s talking therapy maybe he should have gotten some for his son who was raised thinking it was OK to tie dogs to trees and beat them to death.

  • DrRobY

    Maybe he doesn’t know how the press is supposed to work.

  • safari
  • KnownDonorDad

    Someone on Fox referring to anyone else as “partisan hacks” is rich.

    • safari

      I will remark that they dropped their “Fair and Balanced” trademark this year.

  • lymis

    The issue is that the lying, evil, untrustworthy press never reports any of the truth, said Huckabee, to the press.

    Yeah, right, Mike.

  • Rex

    A guest on the Todd Starnes show, not something I’d put on a resume.

  • Friday

    Fundies pretending to be journalists telling other Fundies pretending to be journalists that actual journalism is the real enemy when it catches them out in lies and corruption and spreading fake news, then using it to blame the pres for their own corruption.

  • bambinoitaliano
    • BearEyes

      replace “the” with “is”

  • safari

    When the pee pee tape comes out, what will you say, Mike?

    • jerry

      The same as what he said when Josh Dugger was found to be a child molester.

      • TheSeer

        Something about Beyonce being a bad role model for kids.

  • Michael
  • Karl Dubhe

    Throw a bucket of chum in the sea, you’ll get sharks.

    Throw out a story of corruption and treachery, and you’ll get reporters from everywhere.

    Same deal.

  • safari
    • Rambie

      I’d be happy to give him a big hug Safari. 😉

    • clay

      and Junior didn’t even get any death threats!

    • Gerry Fisher

      Tell him to stop by Bear Week here in ptown. We’ll take care of him.

  • djcoastermark

    Some predator news sites that come to mind there huckerbee, britebart and a whole slew of “christian” news sites to start.

  • Christopher

    Hey guys, we should totally listen to him. He knows a thing or two about predators…

  • billbear1961

    Predators because they’re uncovering the biggest BETRAYAL of our country EVER to occur, with the active COMPLICITY of a major political party that KNEW about the TREASON and has aided and abetted in the attempted COVER-UP by the filthiest gang of THIEVES and LIARS ever to have ILLICITLY occupied the White House?!

    You belong in PRISON, bastard, you and MANY of your colleagues, TRAITORS!!

    In prison, waiting for an appointment with the GUILLOTINE!!

  • Christopher

    “Keep it up Butterball, and I’ll show you what a real Predator can accomplish!” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a8765f55abc460cfe3c472fd3acbe68ff68ba0c221639291327c144f0822469b.jpg

  • TampaDink

    I’ll buy into this bullshit when I see a news person torture a dog to death on live television. Which won’t happen ever, unless fox noise hires huckleberry’s son.

    • Michael

      Then they can air the follow up where daddy makes sure the person gets off scott-free.

      • TampaDink

        But of course!

  • ChrisInKansas

    He may be confused. “The press” is not the same thing as “FOX News”. Yes, they both report news stories, but the two are SOOOOOOO different. That poor tiny brain.

  • No, the GOP, using god, have become the predators. You seek to destroy all freedoms but freedom of imposing christianism on the masses. You and your ilk are a clear and present danger to humankind and society. STFU, go to your church and pray for forgiveness of your own unrepentant abominations, and leave us the fnck alone!

  • billbear1961

    We want your Fuehrer’s TAX RETURNS and paper ballots, from now on, for ALL elections!!

    MUELLER, do your DUTY!!

    Side by side with JUSTICE, pursue all traitors to the gates of HELL!!

  • Hank

    Where was he during the Nixon Era??? Did he not even see/read “All the Presidents Men”??? If it were not for MSM, the the truth about Watergate and Nixon would never have come to light!

    • jmax

      I’m sure that would have been fine with him.

    • clay

      Like Trump during Women’s Liberation and the Vietnam War, Hucklebee was busy studying in school, instead.

  • billbear1961

    Put the fascist coup to the sword!

    Dig up the blight, root and branch–leave behind no vestige!

    Cast every fascist gangster DOWN!!

    Cast them OUT!!

  • Uncle Mark

    “The Press Has Become The Predator,” says the preacher, who feeds upon the poor, ignorant “faithful.” Says the man, who supports the sexually predatory Duggars. Says the man, who supports the predatory President…..a sexual predator, as well as a predatory thief and con-man. I guess it is true what they say about ‘birds of a feather,’ or ‘honor among thieves.’

  • infmom

    He’s just pissy because his daughter is as dumb as a box of orange toupees.

  • Gerry Fisher

    When people abuse their power and break the law, it’s the media’s *job* to pounce like a predator.

  • Nowhereman

    Hearing them talking about fake news while appearing on the original fake news network is just too weird for me to wrap my brain around.

  • DaveMiller135

    Aw, Huck. Have some self-esteem: You and Sarah Palin are never ever ever ever going to be VP. Your wad, be shot.

    Also, I thought Todd Starnes was a columnist. He has a show?!? That has got to be at least 2 signs of the Apocalypse.

    I’m actually feeling pretty proud of myself, because my initial response to this was: “Fuck you, you fucking fuck! Straight up the ass, motherfucker!” So you can see how I might feel like I just brang the wisdom of Solomon.

    • Gianni

      Very good self control on your part. Congrats! 🙂

  • anne marie in philly

    can’t wait til the press discovers some dirt about your filthy dumbass spawn in the press room. YOU FUCKING SUCK, HUCKSTER!

  • Tammy Rainey

    but only when stalking folks we agree with. When right wing sites openly vow to bring down Obama that’s just good journalism at work.

  • DonnaLee

    He just hates that nobody gives a shit about him.

  • JCF

    Who?

  • TheSeer

    Deplorable POS.

  • Richard B

    Hmmm, let us see… Donald Trump said there were no meetings or contacts or collusion between his senior staff and Russian officials.
    So far today, we know there were at least 17 different times Donald Trump’s team meet secretly with the Russian officials, but somehow the Trump team doesn’t remember the meetings till the press ferrets out and publicly reports the details.
    Mike Huckabee is lying to cover for his party and is complaining the press is predators, but the press are the honest brokers who are reporting on the dishonesty of traitorous Donald Trump and his corrupted Republican Party.

  • charemor

    Huck off, Fuckabee. No one cares what you think.

  • -M-

    As if that one video is the only or worst thing Trump said about the media.

  • Rocco

    No, that more accurately describes your sociopathic son David, who tortured a stray dog to death. Smh…clueless asshole. One of the meanest “men of God” in the public square today. I hope he never shuts up though. He helps our cause(s) every time he opens his mouth to bray…

  • JamesR

    The mainstream ‘Press,’ such as it is, never once ran with the predation he did then didn’t do with his fork: https://plutarch01.wordpress.com/2007/12/11/new-121007-300pm/ [Quick read: Writing a book about losing weight via fork discipline and moral righteousness, while OBVIOUSLY having gotten baryatric surgery]

  • Press as predator? So says the filth-inspired failed presidential candidate and self-admitted non-trans voyeur who admitted to a desire to cross-dress so he can ogle naked teenage girls in high school locker rooms.

  • lynnie b

    I remember when I thought this guy wasn’t so bad, at least in comparison to the other primary candidates…holy hillbillies, has he ever sold out!
