Mike Huckabee appeared on Fox & Friends this morning to react to Hillary Clinton saying in an interview that “we just elected a person who admitted sexual assault to the presidency.”
Clinton made the comments in an interview with Channel 4’s Matt Frei, while she was discussing Harvey Weinstein.
Abby Huntsman brought up that moment from the interview and asked Huckabee, “Has President Trump ever admitted to being a sexual assaulter?”
Huckabee said, “I don’t recall that that’s ever happened.”
He went on to invoke Bill Clinton:
“I do recall that Bill Clinton lost his law license, he was impeached, he admitted that he had lied under oath, and that there have been a number of women who have never been disproven to be wrong [sic] about their allegations regarding him.”
In a separate interview recently, Clinton again talked about “someone admitting to be a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office,” but when the subject of her husband came up, she dismissively said, “That had all been litigated. That was the subject of a huge investigation… That was clearly in the past.”
But regarding what Huckabee seemingly could not recall, in the Channel 4 interview, minutes before talking Weinstein, Frei made the first reference to how Trump had “bragged on tape about assaulting women,” clearly referring to that infamous Access Hollywood tape where the President of the United States talked about grabbing women by the pussy. The thing probably everyone recalls from the campaign.
