During an interview on Fox News Radio’s “Kilmeade and Friends” on Thursday, former Arkansas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee commented on Presid Trump’s tweet about the hosts of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” by saying tweets like that make his daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ job as Deputy White House Press Secretary difficult.
Huckabee said, “I would just that…he makes my daughter’s job very difficult with tweets like that. Because she’s got to go and answer it on-camera this afternoon.”
He added that Trump is someone who hits back 10 times harder if someone hits him. Huckabee continued by arguing that any president, especially this one, wouldn’t let what “Morning Joe” has said about Trump go.
Huckabee also said he’s “never that nervous for” his daughter and has confidence in her ability to handle White House press briefings.
