Mike Huckabee: Trump will smash Biden in debate

Biden with flags in backgroundFormer Gov. Mike Huckabee (D-Ark.) forecasts that it will be a “very ugly sight” for former Vice President Joe Biden and his supporters when President Donald Trump demolishes him in their 2020 presidential election debate.

In lieu of Biden recently emerging out of his home self-quarantine to participate in a Memorial Day event – amidst his numerous gaffs and blundered statements – Huckabee mused that his facemask was actually “a gag” to keep him from making more incoherent and embarrassing statements.

"His staff put it on him to keep him from saying something that they would spend the next three days walking back," the former Republican governor from Arkansas joked on Hannity, according to Fox News.

A sitting duck?

Huckabee predicted that one reason Trump will have little trouble routing the ex-VP on the debate stage is because the Democrat continually confuses statistics, dates and names.

“On Wednesday, Biden’s campaign denied that the former vice president had confused the date of the D-Day invasion of northern Europe in World War II with the date of Pearl Harbor Day during a livestreamed fundraiser with Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf,” Fox News reported.

Huckabee pointed out Biden’s incoherence – demonstrated of late via interviews and public statements.

"Joe's in trouble," he impressed to Fox’s Sean Hannity. "He's in trouble because he cannot put a sentence together, and one of these days, he's going to have to stand on the stage with President Trump, and the president's going to make sausage out of him. It's going to be a very ugly sight to say the least."

Questioning blacks’ loyalty to themselves?

One of Biden’s more recent blunders took place about a week ago when he responded to a concern brought up by Breakfast Club Co-host “Charlamagne tha God,” who told the Democrat in the interview: “It’s  long way until November – we’ve got more questions …”

Taking offence to the thought that many black Americans need to see how he is going to work for the black community before giving him their vote, Biden charged blacks who do not blindly vote for him as betraying their own race.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden shot back at Charlamagne, as reported by Breitbart News.

Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., took to Twitter to point out the racism in Biden’s statement.

“Imagine if Donald Trump said this,” Donald Trump Jr. tweeted May 22. “Retweet if you think this sounds racist AF!!!”

Biden’s problem with controlling his tongue has been compounded with a recent sexual assault allegation by a former aide who brought up an incident from decades past. This is along with the Burisma scandal, where Biden was recorded boasting about threatening to withhold major U.S. aid from the Ukraine if it did not fire its prosecutor for digging up illegal activities allegedly committed by his son, Hunter Biden – who made millions from the gas company.

Trump winning another battle?

Besides commenting on Trump’s battle for the White House, Huckabee also brought up the president’s escalating conflict with Twitter, which is now tagging his tweets with “fact checked” labels in an attempt to question the integrity and truthfulness of his tweets.

"You can either be a platform, meaning you're a common carrier like the telephone company,” Huckabee explained to Hannity. “You provide the lines. You don't get to referee the conversation two people have. That's one model. That's what they claim they are – but they're not."

He argued that Twitter is overstepping its bounds as a social media platform by tagging and filtering Trump’s tweets.

"They're a publisher, and what they are doing is they're refereeing the content – and they're deciding who wins, who loses, and they need to stand for the liability of that … and, you know, they've become a monopoly,” Huckabee insisted. “They're not just a social media platform. They're not different than when the government busted up AT&T or when the major utilities were busted up."

He then commended the president for standing up to the social media giant.

"I'm proud of the president," Huckabee concluded. "Thank goodness he had some guts and he did what he did. I've been waiting on it for a long time."
