Huckabee: 'Please, God, Let Nancy Pelosi Continue to Be the Voice of the Democratic Party'
Nancy Pelosi raised some eyebrows when she dismissed an extremely positive jobs report, and Mike Huckabee says her latest remarks are great for the Republican Party.
Reacting to U.S. businesses adding 223,000 jobs in May and unemployment numbers hitting an 18-year low, the House Minority Leader was less than impressed.
“May’s jobs report shows that strong employment numbers mean little to the families hit with soaring new costs under the Republicans’ watch,” the she wrote in a statement released Friday.
On "Fox & Friends" on Sunday, Huckabee quipped that if Pelosi was given a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, she would complain that it was too heavy and too labor intensive to pick up.
"I just don't even know how to begin to say anything other than, 'Please, God, let Nancy Pelosi continue to be the voice of the Democratic Party for the midterm elections,' because it's the best thing that the Republicans could possibly have," Huckabee said.
He said all the GOP needs to do is take Pelosi's words -- whether it's her infamous "crumbs" comment or this new statement dismissing strong employment numbers -- and play them over and over again on television.
"Because all those families out there in America who are getting bonuses and pay raises, who have jobs that were unemployed, they're going to say, 'What la-la land does Nancy live in?'" Huckabee said.
He argued that Pelosi and Democrats in general have lost their credibility because they refuse to acknowledge the positive things that are happening under President Trump.
