CNN’s Jim Acosta is backpedaling on a comment he made to Variety, calling President Trump’s sleights against the media (like “Fake News CNN”) an “act,” but claiming there are some people around the country who don’t know it’s an act, and "they don’t have all their faculties in some cases — their elevator might not hit all floors. My concern is that a journalist is going to be hurt one of these days."

After getting slammed by conservatives for apparently implying that Trump supporters are violent mental defectives, Acosta claimed his comments had been twisted and he wasn’t referring to Trump supporters but to people who would attack journalists. Okay, I take him at his word that he was misquoted. After all, who can trust the media to get quotes right?

But I can’t let this story pass without calling attention to another self-pitying comment by Acosta: “They take attacks from Sean Spicer and Sarah Sanders and what they do to us on a daily basis very seriously."

Another socialist crackpot idea fails in reality

By Mike Huckabee

Finland, the first European nation to give a guaranteed monthly income to all unemployed citizens, is ending the program. The unconditional checks will be replaced with conditions, such as having to seek employment, and limits on other benefits. The change comes amid complaints that it would have required a huge hike in the already crushing tax burden and free money just encouraged people to sit on the couch and play video games instead of working.

In short, it’s yet another crackpot socialist idea that sounded great in theory and failed in reality. No wonder California wants to try it.

"Huckabee" preview

By Mike Huckabee

Tonight on TBN, we have a brand new edition of “Huckabee” just for you! I’ll talk about the blizzard of snowflakes on America’s college campuses with Dr. Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University and author of the op-ed that swept the Internet: “This is Not a Daycare, It’s a University.” I’ll also welcome Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform, who makes those hilarious-but-scary on-campus interview videos that prove being passionate about politics doesn’t mean you actually know anything about the subject. "Full House” star and best-selling author Candace Cameron Bure will tell us about her new book. Plus, I’ll visit another “Our Kind of Town” and present a death-defying acrobatic act (no, I do not participate.) All that and more tonight at 8 EST, 7 CST. To find out where you can watch TBN in your local area, and for clips and complete past shows, visit


Broward deputies have "no confidence" in Sheriff Israel

By Mike Huckabee

Broward County, Florida, Sheriff Scott Israel refused to accept any blame for the Parkland school mass shooting, despite repeatedly missing the danger signals and his deputies cowering outside while it went on. He joined the chorus blaming the gun or the NRA. But as they say, it’s those closest to you who know you best, and those closest to the Sheriff are not impressed.

Israel’s own deputies are petitioning the Governor to replace him. This follows a vote by the 628 union members of the Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputies Association in which they voted “no confidence” in Israel by an 80% margin. The union president said Sheriff Israel “fails to listen to the people. He fails to listen to the membership, and he wants to blame everybody else for his problems.”

In response, the Sheriff refused to listen to the union members, dismissed their no-confidence vote as “inconsequential” and blamed it on negotiating tactics for a raise. Who could have seen that coming?

No legal consequences

By Mike Huckabee

A Manhattan judge ruled this week in favor of a bar that refused service to a Trump supporter wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap and threw him out. The man said the staff of the ironically-named “The Happiest Hour” bar told him, “Anyone who supports Trump — or believes in what you believe — is not welcome here!” The man sued, but the judge ruled that supporting Trump is not a religion or some other group covered by New York’s anti-discrimination law, which doesn’t protect political beliefs from denial of service by businesses.

So I guess the message here is that if Christian bakers and florists don’t want to work on same-sex weddings, they shouldn’t say the redefinition of Biblical marriage offends them. They should just say the couple’s liberal political views offend them, and then they can withhold their services with no legal consequences.
