Mike Huckabee lashed out at the media on Tuesday, saying "mainstream" journalists have suddenly clammed up now that the Trump administration's policies are paying off.
"So this is where the mainstream media is now?" the former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential candidate said on his Facebook page.
"Jobs are up, unemployment's down, peace may well be coming to Korea, Iran's getting foiled, [special counsel Robert] Mueller's stuck in the mud, and [ex-FBI chief James] Comey's being roasted."
Huckabee — whose daughter, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was raked over the coals by comic Michelle Wolf at Saturday's annual White House Correspondents Dinner — said the media is now grasping at straws to attack the commander in chief.
It's latest salvo, he said, was making a big deal out of Trump's confession that he hadn't yet gotten a birthday gift for his wife, who turned 48 last week, because he's been so busy running the country.
"So what does the left have remaining to attack Trump on? Oh! We know! Melania's birthday present!" said Huckabee, a longtime supporter of the president. "What a bunch of frauds."
