Surrogate Mike Huckabee Calls Trump ‘A Car Wreck’

Former Arkansas governor and Donald Trump surrogate Mike Huckabee called the Republican nominee a “car wreck” on Friday morning.

“Trump may be a car wreck, but at least his car is pointed in right direction,” Huckabee wrote in a tweet. “Hillary is a drunk-driver going the wrong way on the freeway.”

Huckabee, who is known for his tortured Twitter analogies, endorsed the business mogul in May after his own bid for the White House failed. His daughter Sarah serves as a senior advisor to the Trump campaign and frequently appears on cable news on Trump’s behalf.

The former Arkansas governor has heaped criticism on Republicans who have declined to back the GOP nominee and defended him from questions about his support from white supremacists and call to ban Muslim immigrants from the U.S.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
