Fox News talking head and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) speculated Thursday that Democrats’ hatred of President Donald Trump was so extreme they would hold it against him even if Trump… sucked coronavirus out of the lungs of everyone with the virus.

On Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle” Thursday, Huckabee got pretty intimate.

“He could personally suck the virus out of every one of the 60,000 people in the world and suck it out of their lungs, swim to the bottom of the ocean and spit it out, and he would be accused of pollution for messing up the ocean, if he did that,” Huckabee said.

“There is nothing this President can do that will ever satisfy the people who hate him more than they hate the coronavirus.”

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.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
