Mike Huckabee says that liberals blasting Ivanka Trump's role in advising her commander in chief father as blatant are ignoring their own party's history.

"Liberal critics from [Sen.] Elizabeth Warren to [civil-rights leader] Al Sharpton have been blasting President Trump for letting his daughter Ivanka advise him without having an official position," the former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate wrote Thursday on his Facebook page.

"Well, the Trump White House gave them what they say they want: to answer their concerns, Ivanka will take an unpaid position with the title of 'adviser,' which makes her subject to all the same rules of ethics and transparency as any other executive branch employee."

With that appointment, Huckabee says, "I'm starting my stopwatch: how long will it be before some of the same liberals who demanded that Ivanka be given an official title start complaining that it's unfair nepotism that his daughter got a job as an official adviser to the President?

"Bonus point to anyone who gives us a hypocrisy twofer by complaining about Trump nepotism while begging Chelsea Clinton to run for Congress. If that happens, I'll note that according to my stopwatch, we're at 67 years and counting, waiting for them to complain about JFK appointing his own brother attorney general."
