The Trumpification of Mike Huckabee

  • SOUNDALIKES: Trump and Huckabee.
Bloomberg's Melinda Henneberg goes to Arkansans to try to answer the question: "Has Donald Trump Swallowed the Old Mike Huckabee."

Anything for attention in a crowded field of Republican candidates. That seems to be the general view of Huckabee's daily dose of outrageous rhetoric, along with many mentions that Huckabee was known as a bit more moderate and genial in olden days. (Our own thought is that the Huckster's moderation and geniality were overrated and never completely masked a mean and graspy streak, though ARKids and a once-moderate view of immigrants were certainly notable exceptions.)

Thanks to Bloomberg for noting that Huckabee booted press he didn't like — you know who — before Donald Trump did it to the Des Moines Register.

ALSO: Wonkette nails Huckabee for trying to sound like he's apologizing for his dumb Holocaust crack when he really isn't.
