Robin,

Donald Trump has picked a Secretary of Labor, and he seems perfect for our current economy. Andy Pudzer is the CEO of the Hardee's and Carl's Jr. burger restaurant chain. Already, liberals are complaining: Pudzer opposes mandatory hikes in the minimum wage and overtime pay, arguing that they kill jobs for low-skilled entry workers and make it harder for workers to put in the extra hours to become managers. Plus he's an attorney who's helped craft pro-life legislation that held up in court.

Of course, critics will also find silly things to harp on, like the fact that Carl's Jr's TV commercials have featured scantily-clad female celebrities eating burgers, which I guess makes him both a sexist and a bovinist. If it helps the left swallow this appointment more easily, I'll note that when he was a youth in the early '70s, he dropped out of Kent State after the shootings there, worked as a guitar salesman, and as he put it, "spent the next three years attending concerts and marching on Washington." So today's SJW recent college grads can relate to his familiarity with protesting, slacking off and fast food jobs, and those on the right can appreciate his later business success. This appointment has something for everyone!

Sincerely,

Mike Huckabee

And in case you missed these:  

Harry Reid

By Mike Huckabee

Harry Reid finally gave millions of Americans the Christmas gift they'd been begging Santa to bring for years: his farewell address to the Senate. Aside from hailing policies that millions of voters just elected Trump to undo, Reid ironically urged his colleagues to "temper their use of the filibuster. Otherwise it'll be gone." Of course, he was the one who showed them how to make the minority's power magically disappear, and now he'd like to put that genie back in the bottle.

But what I think will really stand as Reid's epitaph for his Senate career are these parting words of advice to the Senate: "There's a lot more that needs to be done. Our government has done almost nothing."

Think about that: Our government has run up a $20 trillion debt, half of it accrued in the past eight years when Reid was Majority Leader. And yet he thinks it's "done almost nothing." I shudder to think what the debt – and the Constitution -- would look like if the government had actually done everything he wishes it had.

Fake News

By Mike Huckabee

The standard excuses liberals use when they lose elections – "Our message didn't get through," "Dumb people voted against their own best interests," "People who voted for Trump after twice supporting Obama suddenly became racists," etc. – were going over like last year's egg nog. So they came up with a new one: voters rejected Hillary because they listened to "fake news."

Not reliable news from believable outlets, like the ones that gave us George W. Bush's computerized National Guard documents or Brian Williams' helicopter under fire. No, all those "fake news" stories from conservative sites, obviously planted by the Russians. I guess all those reports about Hillary Clinton building a private email server, sending classified documents over it and lying about it repeatedly were just tall tales made up by Boris and Natasha. Now, even Hillary Clinton (who can't accept that it was a bad idea to tell coal miners who vote that she was going to put them out of work) is blaming the "epidemic" of "fake news" for her loss. She wants Congress to "take action" against it. So if you believed, as I did, that a Hillary Presidency would have been at least as great a danger to the First Amendment as to the Second, there's your proof that your fears were not fake.

Here's a dose of reality: Candidates have always had to deal with false accusations and innuendo. Speaking of Russia, in 1828, challenger Andrew Jackson accused President John Quincy Adams of offering his maid to the Russian Czar as a concubine. When I ran in 2008, some people tried to twist my record to make me look like a tax-loving socialist. Donald Trump was the target of plenty of false and misleading stories as well. But most Americans are smart enough to figure out when they're being bamboozled. In Hillary's case, they determined that the snow job was coming less from conservative media than from the openly partisan, Hillary-supporting mainstream media.

As for the whole "fake news" brouhaha: the Washington Post helped kick that into high gear by citing a "study" by a group called "PropOrNot" that listed over 200 mostly conservative websites they claimed spread Russian propaganda during the election. After many of those sites threatened defamation lawsuits, the group removed some from its list. WaPo amended its story to note that these so-called "experts" had insisted on anonymity and hadn't shared their research, so the Post couldn't vouch for the validity of their methodology or findings. But they ran a story based on them anyway.

In other words, the story about fake news was fake news. So fake, even Bat Boy could have seen through it.
