Prior to President Donald Trump’s “shithole” comments sucking up all the oxygen of the last the news cycle, Fox News was all over House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s ill-advised “five white guys” quip. In case you missed it, Pelosi took a shot at the Capitol Hill group working on immigration, stating it was comprised of only white men while comparing it to the burger chain Five Guys.
This morning on Fox Business Network, Stuart Varney brought up Pelosi’s comments again in an effort to equate it to the president’s remarks and highlight racism from Democrats. Appearing on Varney’s show, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee used Pelosi’s bad joke to make an even worse one of his own.
“I put it to you, governor, had she been a Republican, she would be branded a racist and would be out real fast,” Varney declared. “But not if you’re a Democrat.”
Huckabee said that there are “two sets of rules” for Republicans and Democrats before tossing out a groaner of a line in an attempt to mock the Dem leader.
“Nancy Schmancy is one who is so fancy that she puts caviar on top of her Five Guys burger,” the ex-presidential candidate proudly stated.
He went on to add that Pelosi’s remarks were ridiculous due to the fact that she herself is caucasian. Huckabee further said that he’s “tired of identity politics” and that “this nonsense of color is absurd and offensive.”
