Huckabee: Democrats Should Celebrate 'Constitutional Transfer of Power'

Fox News

Democrats should move pass their disappointment at not winning the election, accept the results, and try to make our country work, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told Fox News on Tuesday.

Commenting on the planned boycott of Inauguration Day by more than 40 Democratic congressmen, Huckabee said they will look like children if they sit it out.

He also emphasized skipping the inauguration will not even help the Democrats.

"I think it delegitimizes their ability to be a true force of opposition based on philosophy," Huckabee said. "They're basing their opposition on the personality of Donald Trump, on the election itself, and I do think that the election and all of the politics is behind us. The inauguration is not celebrating the individual who is being inaugurated; it's celebrating the constitutional transfer of power, the peaceful transfer of power."

Huckabee added a better protest and wonderful statement the Democrats could make would be for them to "show up and say, we don't like Donald Trump. We didn't vote for him. We may not find anything to agree with Donald Trump, but we agree with our form of government, and we agree that it is a peaceful and a remarkable system of constitutional power, and we celebrate that today even if we don't celebrate Donald Trump."
