Last weekend was the second annual “Women’s March,” featuring a lot of profane anti-Trump signs and rants about the rights women have lost, but precious few details about what those might be. Even some older feminists are starting to question the point of recent feminist actions that are actually setting women back in the workplace and that seem based more on leftwing politics than helping women, who are benefiting from the booming Trump economy. It’s especially strange to see so much feminist anger aimed at Republican women when most of the biggest name sexual harassers of the MeToo movement – Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, etc. – have been outspoken liberals and self-proclaimed “male feminists.”

Holding PC-approved liberal political views still seems to inoculate some people from criticism for outrageously offensive sexism, especially if it’s aimed at conservative women. Case in point: Michael Wolff went on Bill Maher’s show to peddle a story so wildly unsourced he couldn’t even put it in his book of fairy tales about the Trump Administration. He the President is currently having an affair and dropped enough broad hints for liberal media outlets to circulate rumors that it’s with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. Haley is incredibly intelligent and accomplished, and she expressed anger that just because she happens to be an attractive woman, she is not the first time she's been made the subject of insulting and demeaning false rumors. But it’s okay for the left to make sniggering, belittling innuendos based on her gender, because she’s a conservative.

Likewise, my own daughter Sarah has been the object of unprecedented personal attacks. Here is a young woman of sterling character and accomplishments, who has earned her position as spokesperson for the White House; and yet, alleged feminists routinely attack her on catty, superficial things such as her appearance. Cher recently exposed her staggering hypocrisy by giving an (anti-Trump) female empowerment speech at a Women’s March rally, then ridiculing Sarah for her clothing choices. 

Politics don’t define a person’s worth. When I criticize Nancy Pelosi, it’s for her political views, not her looks or fashion sense. That’s actually a way of showing respect: I am acknowledging that she is a person whose viewpoint is worth engaging with intellectually, even if I disagree with it. When so-called feminists and liberals can’t challenge conservative women on substance and instead try to reduce them to the level of some outdated sexist cliché, they don’t diminish the women they’re attacking. They only reveal their own hypocrisy and embarrass themselves.

    I'm so proud your daughter, Sarah! She's brave, smart, controlled, and very beautiful. The reason they attack her on her choice of clothing is because they can't find anything to criticize her about!!! You both were amazing on The View!!! Proud of both of you!!!

    I totally agree with the comments made by others. I so appreciate you for your wisdom shared with humor. You brighten my day, mist every day! And the same goes true for Sarah. She is a bright, intelligent, feisty woman and I just love her to death! The cruel comments made about her hurt my heart. I’m just thankful that she has her family and her faith to undergird her. Go, Sarah, go!!!

    I just want to say, I love watching you on tv and reading your commentaries. Also, you and your wife have raised an absolute amazing daughter that anyone should be proud to call their own! She is a strong woman to have to put up with these liberal, DEMONcrats!!!

    I agree with the previous comments, wholeheartedly. Thank God for Sarah and other women who have sense enough to dress sensibly. Thank them too for their courage to stand up for what they believe in. I can't believe some people. They have never had to work hard with no modern conveniences so they do not appreciate what they have. God help us survive the turmoil that is in progress.
    Wishing you the best. Love and hugs, Marie DeKnikker

    The Left has no agenda except to attack President Trump and conservatives - men, women. politicians or not, with the most vicious and despicable terms. They show their complete ignorance and bias by attacking anything that does not agree with their warped views or agenda, whether it is appearance, clothing, religious views, etc. - anything except acknowledging facts and truth. Instead of moving our nation forward they want to destroy conservative views even at the cost of doing great harm to the future of America.

    Once I heard that whenever one points a finger of critism, he/she has 4 digits pointinf back to ones self!
    We love Sarah, your daughter. She is a very strong and intelligent woman for whom I will stand up any time.
    I deem the hurled critic's bans to be full of sound and fury, signifying NOTHING!

    I am sick of these children in Hollywood making these childish comments about Sarah, I have been so pleased with her handling of the press and ridiculous comments. Her composure stays in place at all times. We all must consider the source......

    I am very much a conservative and sick and tired of seeing these women with their nasty signs and less than classy hats thinking all women should have their same view- they have no clue. Totally sick of Hollywood using their pedestal and Cher making fun of someone else's clothing is a hoot and she needs to look in a mirror!! Sarah is a women with morals and class and her modest closet is a breath of fresh air! I encourage my daughter to look up to her- we absolutely love how she handles the press and she is the ONLY reason we watch the press conferences ?? We love Trump and his family and think he is just what this country needs! And WOW- our first lady! Beautiful, elegant and extremely classy.

    Thank you for your honest, truthful analysis of current events.
    Please tell Sarah how disgusted I am at recent attacks on her.
    Some wouldn’t know a wise, intelligent, capable God-fearing woman if she was serving our country in a high ranking position she earned!( exactly!)
    She’s beautiful, articulate, honest, and bold! Praise to The Lord she cares enough for our country to do her job so well!

    Hi governor Huckabee , I'm a big fan and love your show on TBN . Is this the new norm for Christians and Conservatives in this Country to be ridiculed and mocked simply for our foundations or will it change ? As a Christian , I'm aware of the Prophecy's that we Will be persecuted and even killed if we do not deny Jesus Christ . Do you think we are close to end of time ? And do you believe that President Trump is going to broker a peace deal with Israel and the Muslim nations ? Moving our embassy to Jerusalem was a strong move and his recent statement to the Palestinian's about withholding our aid money until they come to the table for peace talks was a calculated move . I'm thinking we are seeing the pieces of the end puzzle coming together quickly before our eyes personally . How do think about this ? Thank you Governor and God bless you and all you hold dear . Gary S. from Mize Mississippi .

    Gov. Huckabee, I wanted to let you know what a refreshing change it is to hear your thoughts and comments about current happenings. I have come to distrust most media news outlets. They are so biased against our President and the untruths are coming to light.
    I enjoy watching your sweet daughter Sarah. She is gifted in quickly and efficiently putting the reporters in their place, and I enjoy watching her maintain her poise no matter what the reporters throw at her.
    I thank you for your Christian values . God bless you!

    I challenge these women marchers to go to anyone of the many countries which to this day have no women's rights let alone clean viable living conditions. There is nothing women cannot achieve in this country if they want it enough. Goals, hard work and a feeling of self-worth are all it takes. These attributes only come from within. Oh, and the knee-deep litter left behind for others to pick up speaks volumes!

  • Samuel Smith

    01/27/2018 09:24 PM

    Thank you Mr.. Huckabee for your news latter it is always to the point, and truthful. Mrs. Sanders and Mrs. Haley are good ladies, they are a class above the others like Cher! The more we push God out the more the devil can move in. As Christ said you can not serve two masters, you will love one and hate the other. I can not say if any of the feminists movement have Salvation, what I do know for sure, they do not heed to the Christian values. God is LOVE, and only love for us come from God. The devil is hate and only hate comes from him for us. You are ether on God's side or the devil's! All this feminists stuff remedies me of a song by Helen Reddey she song back in the 70's "I am women hear me roar".

  • Karen Kennedy

    01/27/2018 09:15 PM

    I love the way your daughter handles the wolves in the press! Don't know how many women OR men could stand up to them the way she does. And Cher's comments? really? Like anyone would take HER fashion advice seriously :-)

    I agree with Charles M. At the risk of sounding un-Godly, I've noticed for years how lovely most conservative women are, and how liberal women are quite the opposite. It's astonishing. Strangely, the same gap doesn't seem to exist between liberal and conservative men. As for Sarah, I've always found her classy, conservative look attractive and refined, qualities that are in short supply in media and politics.

  • Sandy Taylor

    01/27/2018 07:07 PM

    It's been my experience as a high school teacher that when girls are mean and catty to other girls who are beautiful, smart, poised, successful, etc., it has more to do with jealousy than anything. The Republican Party currently boasts many amazing women, brilliant, dignified individuals of character who are worthy role models. They make Hollywood's women look like superficial, silly banshees. The audience they are gathering is foolish women like themselves, not women of integrity and wisdom. They feel their influence slipping.

    01/27/2018 06:17 PM

    Thank you Governor for this commentary. I have to say though, how goofy! What do Feminists want anyway? I always thought it was to say that a woman is just as capable as a man. Then they meet your daughter Sarah - tell her kudos for me would you? and scream about how she dresses etc. They would love me. I'm 59, a handcrafter , will train to be an auto mechanic, a gunsmith, leatherworker and hopefully a bladesmith. Who is holding back whom? Oh, did I say that I'm a Christian? So, who is holding back whom - it bears repeating. God bless you Governor!

    Mike, thank you for giving the world your wonderful daughter. You and her mother have done an outstanding job of raising her. Secondly, thank you for your clear view of the world today. Many people get so bogged down with all the fake news that they can't see the truth. Your open mindedness helps to keep all of us grounded in the truth. Thank you again, God bless you and your family.

    If I have your daughter pegged right this idiot comment Cher made just rolled off her back. I went to the twitter page with the comment. Now Cher has to try and let all those comments demeaning her roll off her back. And I'm sure she will....When pigs fly! Sarah, you are truly a God's send to us. Please continue to rip the MSM a new one daily.

    Hi Mike!
    THANKS to both you and your lovely daughter for having Trump's back in all of this media horror. It is disgusting and I believe it is coming to the point where the vast majority of Americans are truly seeing it for what it actually is. These people are becoming irrelevant and at best treated as a joke. I see where the CEO of Planned Parenthood is actually stepping down from her horrible "job". The times are turning. God please Bless America :)

    There are so many double standards regarding women. The left so easily demeans any women they disagree with as being a stupid, of less value and of less attractiveness generally. Just as it should be with skin color, gender should have no part in the evaluation of intelligence or quality of their arguement.

  • Evelyn Kubanka

    01/27/2018 05:15 PM

    As a female I find these types of women offensive and appalling. I don't think normal women, especially women with sons like myself, take them or the faux protests/ rallies seriously. In fact they are the ones who are putting the progress women have made backwards by living only in the past. I am also very offended that these same women attack white men, yet they dress slutty to get their attention, all the while trashing men. As for the woman's right to decide about what is best for their bodies, that is true, but women are not animals that can't control their sexual urges. Women can also figure out when they are fertile and can abstain for that short period of time. Therefore that excuse is also an insult to woman.

  • Carolyn Gibson

    01/27/2018 04:23 PM

    I think that your daughter, Sarah, and Nikki Haley are great role models for young girls; much better than Cher.
    I enjoy watching the press conferences since Sarah took over!

  • Dot Whitley

    01/27/2018 04:17 PM

    Your daughter, and Nikki Haley are dressing like women who are serious about their jobs, which is what all women should be doing. They are so beautiful without trying to get the wrong kind of attention, while most women want to show far more than a decent man wants to see, and there's nothing pretty about them. If a woman wants to be treated like a lady she has to be a lady, otherwise she attracts those men who do not respect that kind of woman. This will fly right over the heads of most women, but it would be nice if a few saw the light, and mended their ways.

    I believe the left have only jealousy in their hard heads and hearts. Both you and your daughter are highly successful in what you do, and you don't need to "strut your stuff" to show that you are successful right out the gate. You both are obviously filled with the "wisdom of Solomon", also have intelligence beyond the norm, and have the greatest gift of humor of anyone I have ever seen. You both speak, act and attire yourselves as highly polished professionals, and the bimbos in Hollywood don't have that type of immediate PRESENCE, and they are truly green with envy. I think Sarah is by far the best WH press secretary EVER! Her response to Acosta as to where the President was hiding his taxes whereby she said," Somewhere between Pres Obama's Occidental records and his birth certificate" demonstrates a wonderfully developed sense of wit and humor and she knows exactly how to put an end to the press corps nonsense. You both have been blessed by God with your gifts, and please continue to tell us the real truths in your newsletter. I am a Catholic who believes we are exactly where we need to be at any given moment, and I believe HE needed you and Sarah to be the truth tellers in this greatly hypocritical world. Thanks to both of you for that.

    I totally agree Governor, Cher of all people, can certainly NOT fairly criticize anyone’s style! Good grief what a loser. She has shown every part of her old and new plastic self over the years, screwed up her child so bad the poor thing doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not, her mother for instance.? And, what does she have to complain about when it comes to women’s rights? Hasn’t she done very well in this country? I’d like to see how she would be treated in the Middle East where there are no rights for women.
    Go Sarah?? She is awesome in her handling the idiotic press Corp. we love her!

    My belief is the media is so bent on destroying any freedom we have. The push anti conservative values and have the means and where about to do so. There are many people who are not actors nor people of interest that do not share this liberals values. We are the ones that are concerned about our country becoming socialistic or communistic and need people like Trump, Pence, you, your daughter and many others to fight for us. We don't have the big time media and avenues as they have, but we have truth. We prayed for a leader and God sent Trump. Now our prayers are to protect Trump, Pence and their families from the rage of the left.

    Why was so much News coverage of the women's march and so little mentioned about the Right For Life march. Only about 30 seconds of
    President Trumps speech and that was about all that was covered. My prayers and I believe yours also are that President Trump will be
    able to get sufficient Republicans to introduce a ban on abortion and I'm sure he will sign it into law. Love your TV Show.

    Mike,
    If President Trump is attempting to outwit the liberal democrats with the revelation that there are indeed 1.8 million of the DACA illegals, I wish he would explain himself in a way that I could understand! What happened to the number "800,000"? Seems like they multiplied very quickly! Actually the truth would be refreshing if we could ever be sure it was told!

    I followed the march closely last year to try to understand the purpose. The only specific thing I heard was unrestricted, government funded abortion. This year they did add BLM, whatever that means.

  • Kirk Fitzgerald

    01/27/2018 02:10 PM

    Mike,

    I just want to point out that your mention of Nancy Pelosi was way too generous, i.e. that her viewpoint has any merit. She seems to be unhinged lately, and can't articulate a position, but rather uses drastic language for anything Trump does. She truly is a dingbat, sorry, just have to state my opinion. Her and Schumer are so far left that until some logical democrat viewpoint is explained, we will just have to ignore them.

    Thanks, Kirk Fitzgerald

    01/27/2018 02:10 PM

    Governor,

    I'm wondering how many of these women marchers are paid; I think there are many. In addition, like most other liberals, there always seems to be an absent message, i.e. why are they demonstrating and what are their specific causes? Outside of demonstrating, what is their plan of action to achieve their objectives? Are they communicating with their elected officials in any meaningful way? [Cricket sounds]

    Sarah is doing a fine job as WH Press Secretary. She is very quick on her feet. The mainstream media and the errant celebrities deserve every single slam dunk she has given them. When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser. All they have is slander and nothing of substance; just immaturity.

    You nailed it with the so-called "feminists" and , ahem, "male feminists"...what a zoo! The only reason conservative women are targets is because they are nearly all range from very attractive to beautiful - no comment stated regarding their libtard sisters - we all know them, don't we?
    Side note, going viral is a "poster" of Cher in one of her typical slutty costumes captioned with her snarky quote about Sara Sanders' mode of dress. As if wonderful and classy Sara would appear as Press Secretary dressed like a stripper! People like Cher appear to be seeking relevance without success.

    Governor Huckabee, thank you for speaking the truth and for your articles about what is happening in the USA. I admire Nikki Haley, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, Melania Trump, and Ivanka Trump for their courage and willingness two step forward and help the USA in relationships, Workforce, and seeking truth. they are the true leaders of the women's movement. I am disgusted with Hollywood, and the women politicians who seek to demean or diminish the USA and our duly elected president Donald Trump. I know several women ages 50 to 70 who are not impressed with the Hollywood women's movement, and my mother were she alive would be disgusted with them as well. thank you for your voice of reasonand a swarm of markand a swarm of mire.

Sessions is going to destroy the MAGA movement if we don’t find a way to have him reassigned. He recently said that our goal is justice...but we continue to wait for justice. He’s deep state as is Rosenstein...these guys are bad news for Trump and America.

    I admire Sarah and the great job she is doing. She is attractive and dresses appropriately for the job. She has a wonderful memory and does an outstanding job at handling the disrespectful press. I, frankly, do not know how she does it. The liberals are increasingly low class. She needs to "consider the source" and consider herself lucky that she is not associated with them. These people cannot think of anything intelligent to say so all they do is go on the "attack" of conservatives.
