Oh how I love Mike Huckabee!
I’m not sure if he was being serious here or being a little tongue in cheek, but I love how he can stir up a topic!
He announced he was head of the Trump 2024 campaign, and then said he’d explain on Hannity how and why Trump is eligible for a third term.
You gotta love Mike!
Here are the Tweets:
Here's more, from The Hill:
Huckabee claimed Trump’s critics, including former FBI Director James Comey and Democrats in general, as well as the news media and House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry, would make the president eligible to run in the 2024 presidential election. He also said he was “named to head up the 2024 re-election.”
“I'll be on @seanhannity 2nite @FoxNews at 9pm ET and will explain how @realDonaldTrump will be eligible for a 3rd term due to the illegal attempts by Comey, Dems, and media , et al attempting to oust him as @POTUS so that's why I was named to head up the 2024 re-election,” Huckabee tweeted.
Trump is constitutionally prohibited from serving a third term under the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution.
The president has previously joked about running for president indefinitely. Earlier this year, he tweeted an edited video depicting him campaigning for office forever on a satirical Time Magazine cover. It was based on an actual magazine cover from last year that showed Trump campaign year signs every four years from 2024-2044.
Huckabee’s tweet came as the House Judiciary Committee held a marathon debate on two articles of impeachment Wednesday ahead of final votes expected on them later in the day. The full House is expected to vote on the articles next week.
