Former Arkansas governor and ex-presidential candidate Mike Huckabee expressed support for President Trump’s denunciations of four extremist congresswomen, although Huckabee said he personally may have worded some of the president’s tweets differently.

Still, Huckabee defended Trump’s rhetoric, saying that “[Trump] is the president and he has the right to speak in his own way. I think we have come to expect that he is going to have blunt force when it comes to his style of rhetoric.”

Trump - Thing - Condemnations - Reps - Ilhan

Asked if Trump did the right thing in his condemnations of Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, Huckabee stated:

Absolutely, I do. I think the president should have called them out. I understand there may have been some ways that he worded it that perhaps we would have worded it differently if it were up to us.

Something - Lot - People - Comments - Congresswoman

But here is something I think a lot of people are not even talking about. When he made the comments he did not name any one of the four congresswoman. He didn’t. He just talked about those who are antisemitic and anti-American and he lamented the fact that they were being given places of prominence. And these four women identified themselves as the guilty parties.

Now we have a saying in the South that goes something like this — When you throw a rock across the fence it’s the hit dog the hollers. He didn’t say who they were. They stood up and identified themselves. So how insane is it that they basically are admitting that they have said antisemetic, anti-American comments that are really disgusting for anyone but especially for someone who was elected to represent people in the United States and in the Congress.
