Mike Huckabee is pretty upset with his fellow Republicans, and they are pretty upset with him. His unapologetic and seemingly blind support for every Republican nominee was fine and even understandable until his support was also applied to Donald Trump. And then it just became absurd and quite frankly embarrassing.
In an interview on The Bernie and Sid Show on New York radio, he communicates his frustration with #NeverTrump: “I’m really just disappointed that Mitt now is leading the #NeverTrump movement. And I’m thinking, he took Trump’s contribution, he took Trump’s endorsement, he had Trump making robo-calls for him, and a little bit of loyalty in this business goes a long way.”
In light of Huckabee’s dedication to loyalty, he addressed his Republican cohorts in a Fox News interview saying that if they weren’t going to back Trump than they should just leave the party altogether. For a direct quote, “This isn’t Burger King. This is an election. And you don’t get it all the time just like you want it.You’re either on the team, or you’re not on the team.” So, yeah, he really is saying that Republican ideals, principles, policies and ethos aren’t what matters. What really matters is the word “Republican,” whatever that word may mean to whomever may be wielding it to ban Muslims from coming into the country.
In the same interview on The Bernie and Sid Show, he attempts to explain away some of Trump’s, let’s call them, “embarrassing moments” with the world’s most pathetic and terrifying argument:
“Donald Trump has never run for office before, I think a lot of people are expecting him to be this professional at politics where he has thought through the details of every issue. He hasn’t. You know what? As president, he doesn’t have to.”
Well, Huckabee seems to be an expert on not demanding much from professional politicians and is definitely practicing what he preaches when it comes to not thinking through the details of every issue.

Welcome to Episode IV. This week, Dan spends some time with his favorite singer/songwriter, Matthew Perryman Jones. Matthew and Dan talk about panic attacks, growing up in Atlanta, the way music is informed by pain and suffering and the way music gives freedom.
If you have spent any time watching television in the last decade you have most likely heard one of Mattew’s songs on shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, One Tree Hill and many others. His insightful writing and voice have drawn comparisons to Leonard Cohen and Jeff Buckley, and he is on the short list of songwriters who skillfully weave the deeply philosophical and the vivid utterly human without ever losing sight of either.
To get his new album Cold Answer, (which features the three songs from him you heard on this episode), visit MPJmusic.com.
