He Must Be 'Clairvoyant': Huckabee Blasts Schumer for Immediate Rebuttal of Health Care Bill
Mike Huckabee criticized Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) for essentially tearing apart the Senate Republicans' health care bill before the ink was dry.
Huckabee said it was "amazing" that Schumer could have a "carefully crafted, written speech" within minutes of the bill's release.
"I think the guy is clairvoyant," Huckabee said.
Huckabee said it was possible that Schumer received a leaked copy of the 142-page bill before Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and his caucus made it public.
"The other option is he's the one who's spying on Republicans. He was able to get an advanced copy... and craft this very thoughtful speech saying how Republicans were out to kill people," he said.
Huckabee called Schumer's move "political theater."
"The curtain needs to come down on this theater because the play is getting tiresome," he said.
