For people who have no sense of humor, Democrats seem to have no sense of “serious,” either.

First, let's examine the premise that Democrats have no sense of humor.  I can personally attest to that. On Thursday, I tweeted something so outrageously silly that no one in his right mind would take it seriously. I forgot there were clueless Democrats out there and that I needed to add “THIS IS A JOKE, YOU IDIOTS."

Here’s what I tweeted: “I’ll be on @seanhannity [email protected] FoxNews at 9pm ET and will explain how @realDonaldTrump will be eligible for a 3rd term due to the illegal attempts by Comey, Dems, and media, et al, attempting to oust him as @POTUS so that’s why I was named to head up the 2024 re-election.” It went on: “Greatly honored to be asked to chair @realDonaldTrump re-election campaign for @POTUS in 2024. Gives me lots of time to plan! By then the Dems will no longer be a political party in America, replaced by the New Whig Party.”

Democrats flipped their whigs.

Now, since comedy is (or should be) based on truth, I should say that certain elements of my tweet were true. I WAS going to be on with Sean Hannity at 9pm ET on Thursday. There certainly WAS (and still is) illegality involved in the attempt to bring down the President. But the rest of the tweet is so obviously in jest that I was not expecting to be “fact-checked.”

(Of course, fact-checking isn’t what it used to be, because “facts” aren’t what they used to be. Today, a “fact” is what I believe because it has been repeated enough times to me as a talking point even though there is no evidence for it. But I digress.)

Anyway, plenty of leftists assumed I was serious. One tweeted, “If they ACTUALLY try this, we need to revolt. We need to leave our jobs, march to D.C., put the orange f----- out of the White House, and lock him in chains. If anyone tries to protect him from facing justice, they should be prepared for violence. Normally, I think the civil war talk is irrational, but gunning for a third term because of “Democratic obstructionism” is fascism at is finest. It needs to be stopped by any means necessary.”

You know, if anything is “fascism at its finest,” it’s marching to D.C. and locking the duly-elected President in chains. Another insane person tweeted: “When he [Trump] said China had the right idea about getting rid of term limits and laughed and said ‘we’re working on that’ when supporters push for him to get three terms, those really should have been obvious signs that he absolutely planned to proclaim himself president for life.”

And this: “Why not just say Trump should be made King? Or maybe president for life, mister huckabee?”  Good grief.

"It was unclear if Mr. Huckabee was serious,” wrote Tom Embury-Dennis at the British news outlet INDEPENDENT, “but there is no indication there exists any official 2024 re-election campaign for Mr. Trump, who faces a battle just to win a second term in November 2020.” (We’ll see about that.) In case their readers aren't aware, Mr. Embury-Dennis helpfully noted that such a campaign “would be unconstitutional” because “the U.S. Constitution expressly forbids Presidents from serving more than two terms in the White House.” Gosh, really? (On the other hand, since this is a British publication, some of their readers probably DON’T know an American President can’t serve three terms. So at least the Brits have an excuse for not knowing. Maybe they find our system as baffling as we find their Parliamentary system. But I digress, again.)

Recall that when Obama was President, there were theories going around that he would find a reason to declare marshal law and remain in office indefinitely. I think a lot of that anxiety was fueled by the fact that he had the media in the palm of his hand, was worshiped as a god by leftists and was already exercising power “with a pen and a phone” that went beyond his constitutional duties.

Even THE HILL reported on my tweet as if it were serious. Were they just playing along with the joke? I don’t think so; they say they “reached out to the White House and Trump’s 2020 campaign for comment.” Really??

Huckabee teases Hannity appearance, says he'll explain why Trump is eligible for third term

So when you see Democrats on the floor of Congress repeatedly calling Trump a “dictator,” as they did during Thursday’s big, embarrassing impeachment confab, don’t think their words have no effect. They do with their lame-brained base --- the ones who take the dumbest ideas ("Medicare For All"?) at face value and think AOC says deeply profound things --- because that crowd has completely lost its collective mind. They’ve known nothing but freedom and don’t understand that If Trump really were a dictator, he would have silenced them all long ago, either by throwing them into prison, throwing their families into prison, or standing them up against a wall and shooting them. Plus, he would have taken everyone’s guns and money, which, when you think about it, is what THEY want to do.

Gee, if Presidents want to continue having their hands in the pot when their term of office is up, the best way would probably be to have loyal swamp-weasels embedded deep within the government bureaucracy, doing every possible thing they thought they could get away with to sabotage the interloper and get him thrown out of office. Even spy on him. Just a thought.

Anyway, I did go on HANNITY Thursday night. (See?  That part is true.)  Sean put up the response to my tweet from Susan Rice:  “WTF??!!,” which I understand means “Well, that’s fine.” It was fun for me to see Democrats’ heads explode over this, especially when Susan Rice took the bait. To never-Trumpers, having Trump in office another four years is something you can’t even joke about. Not even on April 1.

So, we’ve established that Democrats can’t take a joke, or even recognize one. But it seems they don’t have a sense of “serious,” either. Look at the hurt their self-indulgent impeachment sham is causing the country right now, setting precedents that undercut our system of checks and balances and due process. Nancy & friends put on long faces and pretend to be heartbroken, when we know they can barely contain their shivers of delight as they sit before the cameras all day and call President Trump a dictator a few thousand times.

This is their fantasy come true.  For a few hours, they get to stomp all over Trump and forget how this travesty is going to make many of them very, very sorry in November. (Contrast their phony Constitution-waving with the gravitas of someone like Bill Barr, who genuinely cares about the law.) These Democrats have no idea how ridiculous they look to the rest of us. And that truly is sad.

    Lots of Trump supporters thought you were serious, and are passing along your original claim. You've seriously over-estimated the intelligence of your base. Sad.

    One of millions of reasons Democrats should never be in power. Their demonic baby killing minds were permanently lost at the founding of their KKK

    Love your sense of Humor Mr. Huckabee! I had made a remark I was all for Pres. Trump for 4 more years!!! I do not think he could stand to be in a fight with the Dems for that long! He would do it, no doubt, to say the least, but I do not think he would want to! I just Pray that God hold him in HIS arms every minute Pres. Trump is up against the EVIL's of this God Given Country the USA !! HIS Will be done. In Jesus/Yeshua's name amen.

    I want to thank you for having Nikki Haley on your program and your recommending her book, "With Due Respect". It is one of the most enlightening books this year.

    I LOVE Mike Huckabee! I have also visited his show. He puts on a funny hick-type front, but he's really incredibly smart and has a wonderful sense of humor!! Now reading his tweet (if I could-I don't know how to tweet), I would have known immediately it was a joke. I'm a staunch conservative Republican. But I digress . .

    This is so funny. The democrats are so out of touch with reality. Too bad this impeachment is so real. I hope it never happens. I love reading your take on this, I don't have to read anything else.

    The saying goes: "be careful what you wish for."
    But..since they got so flustered about your suggestion of a 2024 run, is there a possibility that it might be a possibility?
    And who better to lead the campaign but you, Mr. Huckabee!

    Saturday morning at 1:40 AM PST and it says "No Comments" below! The newsletter showed in my inbox at 8:11 AM (Friday). Possible explanation for the lack of comments after 17 1/2 hours - some folks haven't been able to catch their breath and have passed out after laughing for 16-plus straight hours; it's hard to keyboard when you're clutching your belly while rolling on the floor in laughter; some (dems) have shorted their devices by sputtering on them as they spew obscenities; or some (dems) didn't make it past the first 3 or 4 paragraphs before throwing their devices against the nearest wall and stumbling from home in search of the nearest "safe space"...and some Playdough :)

    President Trump has accomplished what Dems couldn’t or wouldn’t do. Something you’ld think Dem “socialists“ would openly acknowledge as a truly great deed—extended leave for new mothers. Dems are so blinded by their vitriol of a legally elected President that they can’t turn off their hate screed for one news cycle.

    What the don't understand or really care about, It's the job OF BOTH PARTIES IN THE HOUSE AND SENATE WHO WRITE THE LAWS. THE PRESIDENT HAS veto power and can write EXECUTIVE ORDERS. SO IS REALLY TO BLAME FOR THIS MESS IN DC. BOTH PARTIES !!! The Left DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE... THEY CARE ABOUT THE POWER OF THE PURSE PERIOD !!! ALL the money that has been WAITED ON INVESTIGATIONS COULD HAVE BEEN used for a better cause. Help the homeless ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE VETERANS. FEED THE POOR, ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE CHILDREN !! NO!!! Let's just impeach the President. I spent 28 yrs in the Navy. I did 2 tours to VIETNAM AND I WAS ONLY 18 AND 19 YRS OLD. JUST TO start with. How many men or women in both the house and Senate ever served in the military.. I FOR ONE, THINK IT'S TIME TO PUT TERM LIMITS ON EVERYONE IN DC !!! THEN MAYBE WE WOULD GET SOMETHING DONE EXCEPT WATCHING A CIRCUS ON TV EVERY DAY.... I AM a Christian, so immediately I AM A VERY BAD PERSON.... WOOOH..

    Keep it up Mr Huckabee!

    I believe our democracy due to outside interference and manipulation,
    and people seeing members of the squad is in danger....
    I’m as Optimistic as it gets...

    Have a great weekend you and your beautiful family!

    The dems, including HRC herself, were so sure that she would win in 2016, that when she lost they went insane. Just 6 hours after Trump was declared President-Elect, Mad Maxine Waters called for his impeachment. Later, Kamala Harris planned to Introduce a bill that would eliminate the Electoral College, until it was explained to her that removing it would require a Constitutional Amendment. They are so PC minded, they cannot realize when someone is joking. In their case PC stands for Plain Crazy!

    Oh, Governor, you are a hoot, this article was the first time I chuckled about politics all week, thank you and you hit the nail on the head.
    The Dems are led around by the nose of the party leaders, who are outright devious.

    There is not one Democrat that has a sense of humor or a sense of serious.
    They do have a sense of anger, hatred and dare I say ‘rage’?
    Now there moving on to trash AG Barr & Mitch McConnell.

    Should we change back to 3 terms for president?

    Nah, you can run in 2024!
