In reaction to a individuals claiming Trump supporters will need to be"deprogrammed," Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee on Tuesday clarified why people voted for the former reality TV star to lead the nation.
"The very first thing would be to get some of these leftist loons [to] take off their boot my neck. I really don't need that, I am supposed to be a free American with the capability to think for myself," Huckabee told"Fox & Friends."
"If my views are as dreadful as they believe they are, then nobody will follow them," Huckabee said.
Liberal journalists and social networking voices have stepped up their calls to"deprogram," deplatform or blatant sabotage right-leaning voices in the aftermath of the deadly Capitol riot earlier this season.
During an appearance Friday on"Real Time with Bill Maher," former CBS News anchor Katie Couric ripped the Republicans in Congress who voted against impeaching President Trump above a complaint of inciting rioters on Jan. 6.
"The question is how are we going to really practically deprogram those people who've signed up to the cult of Trump," Couric said.
Robinson said a week on MSNBC"there are millions of Americans, nearly all White, nearly all Republicans, who need to be deprogrammed," calling them members of a"Trumpist cult"
Huckabee claimed that there is"no cult" of Trump fans, but rather people who"enjoy the numerous" actions that President Trump created to the country such as"standing up for the sanctity of life, standing with Israel by moving an embassy inside that nation, also resetting the Middle East."
"I am glad he cut taxes, deregulated for businesses so that people had the maximum number of jobs among Hispanics, Blacks and women in the background of the nation. I'm glad he pushed back against China so we are not rolling as these Communists continue to steal all, including our advice and our information and each and every key and invention we've created," Huckabee said.
"There are a few things that even a leftist ought to be able to check at and say,'You know what? President Trump has done some good things,' but they can not. And they are the ones that are following the cult, the cult of the left, that thinks somehow that they're always right, they are never wrong, and the rest of us are crazy."
