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.”
