Huckabee: Brennan 'Just a Tool' for Suggesting Putin Intimidates Trump

(Fox News)

Former CIA Director John Brennan is "just a tool" for thinking President Donald Trump is intimidated by Russian President Vladimir Putin, ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Monday.

"That guy is just a tool," Huckabee told Fox News' "Fox and Friends" of the intelligence veteran. "Come on. Donald Trump is not afraid of anybody. This is a guy who talks straight to the face of anybody he wants to and pretty clear about it."

While speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on Saturday, Trump called Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, along with former FBI Director James Comey, "political hacks," and added that Comey was "proven now to be a liar and he's proven to be a leaker."

Brennan told CNN on Sunday, "It demonstrates to Mr. Putin that Donald Trump can be played by foreign leaders who are going to appeal to his ego and to try to play upon his insecurities, which is very, very worrisome from a national-security standpoint."

Huckabee Monday said that Brennan's comments are absurd, and took issue about how the media "discredited themselves" while covering Trump's trip to Asia.

"There is an old expression that those of us that have been on the other side of the camera particularly in politics always said the reason the photographer takes so many pictures he keeps looking for one that's so bad he can actually print it on the front page," Huckabee said, while commenting on a unflattering photo published of Trump grimacing during a group handshake with Asian leaders over the weekend.

"These are motor-wound cameras," Huckabee said. "It's like a machine gun going off how many frames per second they are taking these shots. So he has hundreds of pictures from that very scene to take from and he picks one an isolated frame so it looks bad. This is what people get so disgusted by. This was a hit job on trying to make Donald Trump look bad."
