Following the lead of Donald Trump and Donald Trump Jr., former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee turned the ongoing spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 into a partisan rant.
In a tweet this week, the failed 2008 and 2016 presidential hopeful claimed without evidence that the Democratic party and news media would fault the president even if he personally solved the crisis through decidedly unconventional means.
“The left & media (but I repeat myself) hate @realDonaldTrump more than Coronavirus. If he personally sucked the virus out of the lungs of all 62K ppl affected & swam to bottom of ocean to spit it out, they’d complain he polluted the seas!” Huckabee wrote.
He was widely mocked on social media by critics who took issue with his unfounded allegation and the bizarre way he expressed it.
“Huckabee really drank the MAGA koolaid didn’t he?” tweeted former Trump supporter David Weissman.
Republican strategist and Trump critic Rick Wilson suggested that people “do NOT want to see Mike Huckabee’s PornHub search history.”
