Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee attacked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Saturday for her arrogance in looking down at the people a president is supposed to serve.
“Hillary Clinton is an elitist snob,” Huckabee said during an appearance on Fox and Friends Weekend.
“She believes she’s smarter than you. She thinks that she’s more sophisticated than you and she believes that the people who don’t agree with her are part of the great unwashed of America and the best they can do is just fall in line let her lead them and then be done with it,” he said.
To Huckabee, this is part of the reason Clinton should be beyond the pale as voters head to the polls in November.
“That’s one of the reasons why Hillary, whose campaign is just soaked in duplicity, should never be president. Because nothing she says can you ever believe,” he added.
Huckabee recently gave an instance of this in discussing Clinton’s health.
“If she’d have come out and said look, I have three chronic diseases, here’s what they are, here’s how they affect me but I can still be president, people would have shrugged their shoulders and say, ‘You know what, a lot of people deal with issues,’” he said.
“But that’s not what has happened. She’s perfectly fit, but she falls down,” Huckabee said, alluding to Clinton’s episode from Sept. 11. “You know, she has these issues. Nobody really knows what it is. The latest is that it’s pneumonia, now Bill’s saying it’s the flu. What the heck is it? It’s the cover-up and that’s a problem for someone where 70 percent of Americans don’t trust her anyway. This just adds to it.”
Earlier this week, Huckabee critiqued Clinton and her performance at Monday’s presidential debate.
“After more than 30 years in politics, Hillary Clinton is known only too well. Her carefully focus-grouped speeches about all her government experience and her 25-point plans don’t impress anyone who knows that it was bad experience and that her plans are nothing but more of the same foreign policy weakness that’s letting ISIS, Iran, Russia, China and North Korea eat our lunch …” he wrote.
“Many of her claims were downright laughable, such as her smug assurance that she’s uniquely qualified to fight cyber threats from foreign governments, when we all know she thinks you ‘wipe a server with a dust cloth and destroy data by hitting smartphones with a hammer,’ and all her own emails are all over WikiLeaks,” he added.
Huckabee said Clinton’s lack of connection to the people was evidenced by her stilted delivery.
” … her attempts to spark internet memes with painful canned groaners like ‘trumped-up trickle down’ — she said that twice, as if it would sound wittier the second time — landed with a clunk and just drew attention to her lack of spontaneity,” he wrote.
