Mike Huckabee Says President Obama Is “Marching the Israelis to the Door of the Oven”

You never go full Holocaust!


Earlier this month, Gov. Mike Huckabee tried to get a little juice for his presidential campaign by releasing a remake of LBJ’s “Daisy” ad, in which a small child is blown up by a nuclear weapon. When that failed, he nuked two characters from Disney’s The Lion King. And on Sunday, when that didn’t deliver Huckabee the media firestorm on the Iran nuclear deal he was looking for, he played his trump card.

And okay, now you have our attention, Gov. Huckabee:

 

At least one person rejects the idea that President Barack Obama is launching a second Holocaust—President Barack Obama. Responding to the former Arkansas governor’s comments while on a state visit to Ethiopia, Obama said Huckabee’s comment “would be considered ridiculous if it wasn’t so sad.” Huckabee is among a handful of GOP candidates who appaear to have been hurt by the rise of Donald Trump. We’ll see if the most recent stunt will help him make up some ground.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
