Sad Huck watch: Mike Huckabee planning to attend Donald Trump's event tonight

Posted By on Thu, Jan 28, 2016 at 11:53 AM


Well, of course. 

As we detailed earlier, Donald Trump, is hosting an event tonight, a benefit for veterans at Drake University in Iowa, which will be at the same time as the GOP debate that Trump is skipping because...well, whatever. 

Trump earlier said that a couple of candidates were interested in attending. Mike Huckabee, come on down! The Hill reports

Mike Huckabee will attend Donald Trump's pro-veterans event on Thursday at the same time as Fox News's GOP debate.

Hogan Gidley, a Huckabee spokesman, told The Hill that the former Arkansas governor will still participate in Thursday's undercard debate, but will head to the Trump event after it ends. 

Could be a risky move for the Huckster since he presumably wants a Fox News gig once this is all over, but he's attending the sad undercard debate, so maybe it's all copacetic.

Putting on my pundit hat, I predict some more weird stuff will happen today in the GOP presidential race.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
