So, the New York Times has published a list of 49 questions purported to be the ones special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump. Here is a completely hypothetical response to Mueller that I would dearly love to see from Trump. Here, New York Times:

Dear Mr. Mueller:

I have just seen the long list of questions in the New York Times that are alleged to be from you. Since the Times has occasionally been known to print leaked material that turns out to be incorrect, I don’t know if these really are the questions you intend for me or not. But in case they are, I have to say that they are ridiculously open-ended (Witch Hunt!!) and would take many hours to answer fully, and I kind of have a lot on my plate right now, what with working to end the Korean War, secure the border against an incoming hoard and figure out what to do about those lyin’ Iranians who clearly are on the path to nuclear bombs. I hear you don’t care about this and may want to subpoena me. Before you take that step, though, I have a request: answer this list of just 10 similarly open-ended questions I have for YOU.

"Colored boy"

By Mike Huckabee

If I told you that a conservative media outlet had referred to a prominent African-American celebrity as a “colored boy” because they didn’t like his politics, how long do you think it would be before Twitter mobs descended in justifiable outrage over such a condescending racist insult?

Well, that’s the exact term that smugly liberal NPR (National Public Radio) used in its headline on an article attacking hip-hop star Kanye West for offering support to black conservative Candace Owens and refusing to condemn President Trump, instead defending his right to think independently.

A reminder: your taxpayer dollars are paying for this. Don’t ask me why.

Who leaked to the NY Times?!?

By Mike Huckabee

In yet another leak masquerading as journalism, the New York Times printed a lengthy list of what it claims are questions that special counsel Robert Mueller wants to ask President Trump. You can read more about them at the link. Suffice to say, it’s an entire tackle box full of lures for a fishing expedition, very few of which have any relation to the alleged object of the probe, “Russian collusion” to influence the election.

They range from questions about Trump’s business dealings with Russia to whether he knew about Jared Kushner’s efforts to set up back-channel communications with Russia prior to his Inauguration (which as President-elect, he had a perfect right to do, and it was after the election) to his motivations for firing FBI Director James Comey (Ooh, let me answer that one! He was motivated to fire Comey because everyone on both sides agreed that he richly deserved to be fired – up until he was, of course -- something he continues to prove every time he opens his mouth; and Trump probably realized that as President, he had both the duty and the unquestionable power to fire him at any time for any reason. Next question!)

What the media gets wrong about the WHCD?

By Mike Huckabee

Good article: Tony Williams at the Victory Girls Blog explains to White House Correspondents’ Association president Margaret Talev that not only did they fail in their purported efforts to “build a spirit of unity,” but they also failed to grasp the basic flaw in their self-aggrandizing mission statement. As Ms. Talev put it at the dinner (or as I’ve seen several pundits describe it since, the “dumpster fire”):

“We reject efforts by anyone, especially our elected leaders, to paint journalism as un-American, to undermine trust between reporter and reader, or to cast doubt on the relevance of fact and truth in the modern age.”

Kudos to Ms Williams for pointing out bluntly that journalism is not under attack, “fake news and liberal bias is under attack” – and contrary to what many in the media seem to believe, those aren’t the same thing. Nobody believes journalism is un-American or wants to cast doubt on facts and truth. We just don’t trust journalists who have squandered our trust by rushing to air phony, poorly vetted or deliberately slanted stories that promote their own political views, or who make it clear through events like that dinner that they have nothing but hatred and contempt for millions of Americans whom they expect to look up to them as beacons of unvarnished truth.

A week of news - my weekend monologue

By Mike Huckabee

Just a few hours after we taped last week’s show and a few miles from our studio, a man entered a Waffle House in Nashville and randomly shot and murdered 4 people and wounded several others. I won’t give the name of the deranged young man who did the killing because it’s my policy to never help mass murderers become famous or see their names or faces in the papers or on TV. But there is someone I hope becomes famous from that tragic situation—James Shaw Jr, a young father who grabbed the gun and threw it over the counter causing the killer to flee. The gunman evaded capture for more than a day before being arrested and charged with the murders. He has a long history of mental illness and firearms had been taken from him, but his father appeared to have given them back.

Enough about the killer. Let’s focus on James Shaw Jr., an honest to God hero. He acted instinctively and instantly. He first risked his own life for had the gunman been able to reload, the next victim would have been James Shaw. Secondly, he saved the lives of other people at that Waffle House. They owe their very existence to the actions of someone who exemplified what Jesus said was the greatest form of love: “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for his friends.”
