GOP presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee responded to Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s previous attack over Huckabee’s characterization of President Obama’s Iran deal:
Hillary Clinton came out of hiding today to attack my comments on Iran, calling them unacceptable, but what’s truly unacceptable is a mushroom cloud over Israel. How many times will Iran’s leaders call for Israel’s annihilation before Hillary wakes up to this existential threat? How many murdered Israelis will it take for Hillary to express as much outrage at Iran as she did at my defense of Israel? The policy of my administration will be ‘never again’ and when the phone rings at 3 A.M. I won’t tell the American people ‘what difference does it make?’ I will stand with Israel against Iranian evil.
Clinton attacked Huckabee while campaigning in Iowa.
“Comments like these are offensive and they have no place in our political dialogue. I am disappointed and I’m really offended personally. I know Governor Huckabee. I have a cordial relationship with him. He served as the Governor of Arkansas. But I find this kind of inflammatory rhetoric totally unacceptable.”
The DNC, President Obama, and establishment politicians – including both Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton – have attacked Huckabee over his statement on the Iran deal, which he made on the Breitbart News Saturday radio show on Sirius XM Patriot Channel 125, when Huckabee said, “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”
