Huckabee: ‘Nonsense’ To Say My Campaign Is on ‘Life Support’

‘It just incenses me when people who have no idea what a campaign is about pretend that, “Well, Huckabee’s campaign is on life support”’

KILMEADE: “Governor, let’s talk about what you’re doing. You want to be the next president of the United States. And currently, a lot of people — we’re looking at the poll numbers and they don’t look strong, and your numbers don’t look nearly as strong as last time around. So what is going to take to turn things around and would you say it’s correct to characterize your campaign is on life support?”

HUCKABEE: “Well that’s nonsense. You know, people who say that sit in their little buildings in Washington and their pundits. They look out the windows and look at Manhattan. If they want to look at a campaign, come to Iowa and look at the fact that every event I had last week, we had overflow crowds. We had people that couldn’t get in the room. You know, I’m in a better place now than I was seven — eight years ago at this very same time. So, it just incenses me when people who have no idea what a campaign is about pretend that — well Huckabee’s campaign is on life support. You know if people want to support the campaign, they can do it. But I get so just fed up and disgusted with pundits who don’t have a clue what they’re talking about. And you know, they’re so bright, they predicted Rudy Giuliani was the winner, eight years ago. This time, four years ago, they were predicting it would be Rick Perry.”

KILMEADE: “Right.”

HUCKABEE: “So good luck with that pundits. You’ve done a great job always making the right pick.

KILMEADE: “Governor, thanks so much for choosing us this morning. Great to see you.”

CHILDERS: “Thanks for your time, governor.”
