Mika: GOP Candidates Denouncing Trump But Not Huckabee Are ‘Cowards’

For the second consecutive day, MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show co-host Mika Brzezinski took on former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) for his controversial remarks condemning the nuclear deal with Iran by using a Holocaust analogy.

Brzezinski reacted to some of Huckabee’s Republican opponents refusing to condemn, or even in some cases like former Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) supporting, the former Arkansas governor for the remarks.

“We had a strong reaction on the set,” she said. “I think the Republican candidates who won’t denounce this but said they’re denouncing [Donald] Trump are cowards. That’s a harsh thing to say.”

“This should be an easy one,” Brzezinski added. “Huckabee should apologize, even though at this point it would be empty since he has doubled down. And his fellow Republicans should have the guts to do and say the right thing. and they don’t.”
