Huckabee slams Lawrence O’Donnell for reporting fake Trump story


DISEASE, BECAUSE HE HAS THREE YEARS LEFT ON HIS CONTRACT. GREAT TO HAVE HIM BACK.>>>PRESIDENT TRUMP SLAMMING MSNBC’S LAWRENCE O’DONNELL FOR FALSELY REPORTING THAT RUSSIAN OLIGARCHS COSIGNED ON A LOAN TO TRUMP. TRUMP RAMPING UP THE RHETORIC AGAINST THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA IN SERIES OF TWEETS AND IN AN INTERVIEW WITH FOX NEWS TODAY.>>LAWRENCE O’DONNELL HAS BEEN SAYING STUFF FOR FOUR YEARS THAT IS JUST AS WRONG BUT THIS WAS ONE THAT HE WAS FORCED BY NBC TO APOLOGIZE FOR AND, WHAT THEY SAY IS JUST MSNBC AND CNN AND ALL OF THEM FOR THE MOST PART, BUT THEY’RE JUST REALLY DESPICABLE PEOPLE.>>RIGHT.>>FAKE NEWS. IT’S A SHAME. BRIAN, IT IS SO BAD FOR OUR COUNTRY.>>BRING IN FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR, FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE. GOVERNOR, THANKS FOR JOINING US.>>HAPPY TO BE WITH YOU, CHARLES. YOU KNOW, WHEN YOU GET RACHEL MADDOW TO REACT NEGATIVELY AND BE SHOCKED AT SOMETHING ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP, IT MUST BE OVER THE TOP. WHEN LAWRENCE O’DONNELL SAID WHAT HE DID THE OTHER NIGHT, SHE, RARED BACK IN HER CHAIR AND SAID, ARE YOU KIDDING? YOU COULD TELL EVEN SHE WAS SHOCKED THAT HE WENT THERE. IT WAS TRULY ONE OF THE MORE OUTRAGEOUS THINGS WE’VE SEEN ON PART OF SOMEBODY IN THE MEDIA IN A WHILE. WE’VE SEEN PRETTY CRAZY STUFF. CHARLES: WE HAVE SEEN PRETTY CRAZY STUFF. SOMETIMES YOU CAN ARGUE THERE IS THE HASTE, TO HAVE QUOTE, UNQUOTE, BREAKING NEWS BUT THERE HAVE BEEN INCIDENT AFTER INCIDENT AFTER INCIDENT WHERE THERE HAD TO BE MAJOR APOLOGIES BY THESE JOURNALISTS. OFTEN THERE HAS BEEN SERIOUS COLLATERAL DAMAGE. MORE THAN ONE OCCASION THE STOCK MARKET SWOONED ON NEWS THAT WAS COMPLETELY FALSE AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN VETTED BETTER.>>THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BREAKING NEWS AND BREAKING WIND AND WHAT LAWRENCE O’DONNELL DID WAS NOT BREAKING NEWS. IT WAS BREAKING WIND AND IT WAS EMBARRASSING TO THE NETWORK T SHOULD BE EMBARRASSING TO HIM. ALTHOUGH I DOUBT IT IS. WHEN YOU HAVE LIKE ON CNN WHERE YOU HAVE SOME NUTCASE SAYING THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR MORE DEATHS OF PEOPLE THAN CHAIRMAN MAO AND HITLER AND MUSSOLINI, THE HOST OF THE SHOW, JUST SITS THERE AND LETS IT GO? LATER PRETENDING THAT HE DIDN’T HEAR IT. WELL THEN, GET YOUR EARS CLEANED OUT PAL, IF YOU WILL HOST A SHOW TO LET PEOPLE STAY STUFF LIKE THAT. THE NET RESULT, PEOPLE JUST ARE NOT PAYING ATTENTION TO MOST OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA BECAUSE THEY DON’T TRUST IT ANYMORE. SADLY, IN A TIME WHEN WE REALLY NEED GOOD JOURNALISM, WE NEED GOOD REPORTING, A LOT OF THE LONG-STANDING WANNABE JOURNALISTS ARE SHOOTING THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT. MAYBE I SHOULD SAY SHOOTING THEMSELVES THROUGH THEIR OWN TONGS, MAKING IT MORE AND MORE DIFFICULT FOR ANYONE TO BELIEVE THEM. MANUFACTURER AND MORE LIKELY THEY AGREE WITH THE PRESIDENT. THIS IS FAKE NEWS. CHARLES: HOW MUCH OF A ROLE IS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S CONSTANT COUNTERPUNCHING AGAINST THE MEDIA, SOME OF THE THINGS HE HAS SAID ABOUT THE MEDIA, DOES THAT, DOESN’T JUSTIFY IT WHAT I THINK IS BEING COMPLETELY UNFAIR TREATMENT OF PRESIDENT TRUMP SINCE HE ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY HOW MUCH OF IT STOKES THESE FLAMES, EVEN MAKES THEM MORE EAGER TO GO AT HIM?>>OH, I THINK THERE IS NO DOUBT THAT THEY ARE IRRATE. THEY WANT TO DO EVERYTHING THEY CAN TO DISCREDIT HIM. BUT THE BEST THING THEY CAN DO, ANECDOTE TO ANYTHING HE SAYS ABOUT FAKE NEWS, WHERE HE SLAMS THEM, THE BEST THING TO DO IS SIMPLY STICK TO REPORTING VERIFIED FACTS BUT THEY’RE IN SUCH A HURRY TO DISCREDIT HIM, THEY’RE IN SUCH A HURRY TO GET SOMETHING FIRST RATHER THAN RIGHT, THEY END UP DISCREDITING THEMSELVES INSTEAD OF HIM. THEY HAVE A SIMPLE SOLUTION, THERE IS A SIMPLE ROAD TO REGAIN THEIR CREDIBILITY, CALLED, REPORT THE NEWS, QUIT MAKING EVERYTHING YOUR OWN PERSONAL COMMENTARY. THEY CANNOT HELP THEMSELVES. BUT THEY ARE HELPING PRESIDENT TRUMP BY WHAT THEY’RE DOING. CHARLES: NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THEY HAVE CROSSED THE RUBICON, WHEN IT COMES TO THAT. NO DOUBT IN MY MIND. IT IS UNFORTUNATE. I WANT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ERASING METHANE RULES FROM OBAMA ADMINISTRATION. HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THE NEWS.>>WELL, LET’S REMEMBER THAT THERE WERE NEW METHANE LIMITS PUT ON IN 2012. WHEN THE PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS IN OFFICE. THEN THEY CHANGED THEM IN 2016 OF THE SO WHAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS DOING, THEY’RE NOT ROLLING BACK PAST 2012. THEY SAYING ONES IN 2016 WERE TOO MUCH, TOO FAR. A LOT OF ENERGY COMPANIES SAY, YOU KNOW, THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DO IT. METHANE IS ACTUALLY GOING DOWN BUT ANYTHING THAT THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION DOES, ANYTHING, WILL BE VIEWED AS HELPING TO BRING ABOUT THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. SO, WE SHOULDN’T BE TOO SURPRISED THAT PEOPLE ARE TEARING THEIR GARMENTS AND SAYING INSTEAD OF 12 YEARS LEFT FOR THE HUMAN RACE TO SURVIVE, WE MAY BE DOWN TO 11. CHARLES: OH, BOY, I HOPE NOT. I LOVE THESE INTERVIEWS WITH
