Obama basically came out and said Mike Huckabee and Republicans are assholes

On his first day in Ethiopia, President Obama turned heads with his direct condemnation of Mike Huckabee’s recent remarks, saying the President is trying to push Israel into the “door of the oven” in regards to the nuclear deal with Iran.

On his first day in Ethiopia, President Obama turned heads with his direct condemnation of Mike Huckabee’s recent remarks, saying the President is trying to push Israel into the “door of the oven” in regards to the nuclear deal with Iran.

“The particular comments of Mr. Huckabee are, I think, part of just a general pattern we’ve seen that is — that would be considered ridiculous if it weren’t so sad,” the president said during a news conference in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

“We’ve had a sitting senator call John Kerry ‘Pontius Pilate.’ We’ve had a sitting senator — who also happens to be running for president — suggest that I’m the leading state sponsor of terrorism. These are leaders in the Republican party.”

“Maybe this is just an effort to push Mr. Trump out of the headlines but it’s not the kind of leadership that’s needed for America right now,” the President added.

In an interview with Breitbart News this Saturday, Huckabee compared the Iran deal to the Nazi Holocaust.

“This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history,” Huckabee said. “He’s so naive he would trust the Iranians and he would take the Israelis and basically march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiot thing.”

A spokeswoman for Huckabee tweeted a response from the former Arkansas governor to the President’s criticism:

    Is this the best use we can make of having such a powerful communication and information sharing tool? How sad.

    And how on earth can Huck-a-bee consider the Obama administration the most “feckless in American history???Huh? How quick the GOPERS forget the Bush administration did far worse to foreign policy?….Hello? Useless and horrific wars(2!) that DID nothing to deter the debacle in the Middle East, but in fact made it worse. They left a shambles and opened the door for ISIS to develop. And Huk-a-bee calls this deal “idiotic”….? well, he knows about “idiotic”…doesn’t he? He needs to go back to preaching and get of the political stage. We certainly don’t need the likes of HIM!

    Consider the source. The Huckster is an internet televangelist. What do you expect from him?

    He should not be preaching as a Christian.

    I voted for Pres Obama twice. I liked & admired him during his first term. I LOVE him in his 2nd term. He is finally able to say what we’ve all been thinking. Great when there isn’t a second election looming!
