Gov. Huckabee Shares Heartbreaking Prayer He Gave After Wolf's Attack on Sarah

Parler Share

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee probably knew that when his daughter became White House press secretary, she was going to face a lot of slings and arrows from the press. It’s doubtful, however, that he ever imagined something like Michelle Wolf’s decision to attack Sarah Huckabee Sanders at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Saturday.

Wolf trashed Sanders on a personal level, called her an “Uncle Tom for white women” and compared her to characters in “The Handmaid’s Tale.” And Sanders took it, just feet away, without walking out.

Wolf may have been the one who ended up with egg on her face, and Sanders is certainly strong enough to handle that kind of thing.

However, in a series of Facebook messages, Huckabee said he prayed that no other mother’s children had to see their parent dragged through the mud in such a way.

The WHCD was supposed to celebrate the 1st Amendment. Instead they celebrated bullying, vulgarity, and hate,” Huckabee tweeted.

“They got all dressed up so they would look nicer when they had a hired gun savagely attack their guests. Do they really wonder why America has no respect for them? Sad!”

Do you think Michelle Wolf should apologize for her performance?

“Those who think that the tasteless classless bullying at the WHCD was an example of the 1st Amendment should never condemn bullying, bigoted comments, racist bile or hate speech. People should be free to speak but held accountable for it.”

Huckabee then thanked New York Times writer Maggie Haberman for standing up for his daughter in a tweet.

“Sincere and heartfelt THANKS to (Maggie Haberman) for having guts to publicly denounce the vicious vile attack on (Sarah Huckabee Sanders) at WHCD. (She) handled it professionally but I pray her kids never see that. I pray more they never bully another person like that.”

As for Wolf, he had a humorous, if biting, response to her antics.

“After seeing the young female hired to verbally bully anyone who worked for (Donald Trump) I now understand why eating Tide Pods is popular,” Huckabee said.

“That level of vulgarity is best handled with a mouth washed out w/ soap. Have some more Tide Pods.”

Sadly, the ante only gets upped, and the next attack will only be more vicious. One hopes that Gov. Huckabee’s prayer comes true, but one also gets the feeling that might be impossible. Let’s just hope someone remembers this is a mother with children and treats her with the dignity any human being deserves.
