Mike Huckabee slammed a TIME magazine story that said President Trump's opposition to Washington bureaucracy could come at the expense of our democracy.
The former Arkansas governor called it the latest example of an anti-Trump press writing a "contemptuous and condescending story."
He said that journalists like the one that wrote the article still do not understand that Americans voted for Trump because of the size of government bureaucracy, not in spite of it.
"This is at the zenith of what people are disgusted by," Huckabee said, adding that Trump is the "major disruption" the people have been wanting to see in the capital.
"It's a war for the freedom that the American people have lost because of Washington," he said.
He compared Trump to a prophetical figure coming down the mountain to take away the "golden calf" from the "god of government."
