It finally happened: the kneejerk anti-Trump media memes that stress made-up or out-of-context “gaffes” over real and serious news have become so out-of-touch with reality that even the far-left New Republic is urging liberals to knock it off because they’re embarrassing themselves.

Of course, this article still had to reiterate the left’s dearest article of faith – that Trump is just the worst thing ever and does so many horrible things for real that they don’t need to make them up. I’d just ask, if that’s true, they why do they feel that they do need to make so many up? Is it because what they define as horrible, repellent and racist are things that the majority of Americans agree with, such as that borders should be secure, criminal illegal aliens should be deported back to where they came from, and people who’ve become rich from the opportunities America provides should have the basement-level amount of decency and gratitude to stand up during the National Anthem?

Or is it because it’s hard to gin up outrage among the public by honestly saying that under Trump, the economy is growing faster than liberals said was possible, the Dow is setting new records, job-crushing regulations are being axed, ISIS is getting crushed, judges who respect the Constitution are filling the bench, unemployment is falling, America no longer kowtows to foreign tyrants, and consumer confidence is at its highest level in years? It’s hard to scare non-coastal Americans by saying all that. Maybe they could try warning that they might do so much winning, they’ll get tired of winning. Or if that fails, try to scare us by saying that too much prosperity may lead to gout.

    I absolutely love your newsletters. Not only do I get "real" news but I get my daily chuckle. Your sense of humor (and your sarcasm) make my day!
    I trust you over any other news source. Keep up the great work.
    Oh, and your daughter is wonderful! I'd say she's her Father's daughter but I don't know your wife.
    Love you!!

    Trump and team are doing a great job. I think the others are just jealous of how great America is looking lately

    I'm pretty much a lifelong NFL fan. I attended my first AFL game in the early 60's as our pathetic Denver Broncos (this year's version is reminding me of that memory). I rejoiced when they won Super Bowls in '97, '98, and '15...then something strange happened. A two-bit player who had read too many of his own press clippings decided it was time to set America straight, and thus was born "The Knee". Along with millions of Americans, and especially veterans, I was more outraged when the wimp called the NFL Commissioner wussed out and chose to look the other way. We all now know how that played out. My point in this mini-history lesson that the man who called out the NFL and reminded us all that dissing our great nation by way of so-called "free speech" rights was an affront to ALL Americans was none other than The Great Satan himself...Donald Trump. As a result of his courageous and call-it-like-it-is rhetoric, I am finding other things to do on Sundays and, much to my surprise, I don't miss the pretty-boys at all. Hearing that Marshawn Lynch of the Raiders sat with his back to the American flag in Mexico City today, but respectfully stood for the MEXICAN National Anthem is yet more confirmation of what our President had to say, and why people like me will gladly do without ANY sport in which our flag and heritage is dishonored!

    Thank you, Mr. President for galvanizing millions of Americans to do what you've advocated all along...Put America FIRST and make America GREAT again! Praying for your health and the blessing of the God that your enemies hate even more than you.

    No matter what, you cannot compete with people who are unhinged, by using rational and logical arguments to counter their illogic. An old saying goes like this: A lie travels halfway around the world before the truth can get its shoes on.

    Trump is the best thing to happen to this country. He is making America great again. He is fiercely loyal to the country and its people. He is trying his best to do what is best for Americans. I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how folks thinks the things he is doing are wrong. It is just good old common sense. He is a great man!!!

    I am proud of everything President Trump is doing for our people and our country. I wish these trouble making libs would just crawl up in a hole somewhere, and stay there until The President has finished his two terms. That's not gonna happen tho, they want their lying mouths to be heard and I just pray that no one listens to their garbage.
    God Bless You and Yours Mike, Today and Forever.

    Thanks so much Mike Huckabee for keeping us informed in what's really true! I'm a 65 yr old widow and it's very unsettlingly to see such hate and vicious attacks on the POTUS. I disliked the last 8 yrs but I didn't go out and destroy businesses and try to physicality hurt others. So thankful God is in control. He alone has the last word. Love ur commentaries, and ur sense of humor. Keep standing for us God bless you and ur lovely daughter. She is amazing!!

    Thank you Governor. Your comments about media bias is true and correct. Christ said a house divided against itself cannot stand. How much longer do we as a country have?

    Mike.......This sounds crazy, I know, but can President Trump exile every liberal! Why is it so hard for the liberals to work with President Trump so we can have a government that will work for the good of our country and the good of the people. If our next president is a liberal, I hope and pray they get the same treatment as President Trump is receiving by the liberals. Thank you for your time and God Bless.

    I thank you for your service, for standing up for SS. I think Ann Coulter is correct in her view on how the Democrats have stacked the deck. I can see how they have bought the votes of aliens with favors. Please keep standing for the truth.

    This comment goes to the MSM. The management at the top of the organizations are the ones who advocate the improper reporting. They do not know how to deal with a man who says what he means and means what he says. We elected a man who would no longer kowtow to the countries who hate or take advantage of us, and because he stands up for us the MSM finds fault at every turn.

    And now for the politicians. There are far too many Democrats who are more focused on disrupting when they should be focused on the needs of the people. If they spent just half the time they devote to bashing President Trump to the duties they took an oath to perform, our country would be settled and prosperous beyond belief.

    Are you really sharing those clickbait posts from the Conservative Tribune, Western Journalism and the like? Just seems below you.

    Thank you! You’ve said it perfectly! I’m so sick of the left warmongers.

    Why haven't Clinton and Obama been charged with any crimes? I would like to see something happen before 2020. God bless America, god bless president Trump.

    Might lead to gout! Hahaha! That is awesome! I hope they quit with all the BS but I won't hold my breath.

    Those no longer in power across the entire spectrum of politics, media , and entertainment have been exposed and are drowning in their own sewage. It is literally their last attempt to remain relevant, as they now from a circular firing squad and start taking each other out. They are fighting for those last spots left on the lifeboats, and they do not care who they destroy. No honor among thieves or liberals.
