‘You’re a Fool’: The Internet Torches Mike Huckabee For Comparing Trump To Winston Churchill

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) is being hammered online after he compared President Trump to British leader Winston Churchill.

In a tweet posted Tuesday, Huckabee said that he had just watched the film “The Darkest Hour,” which dramatizes Churchill’s experiences as prime minister during World War II, calling it a reminder of “what real leadership looks like.”

“Churchill was hated by his own party, opposition party, and press. Feared by King as reckless, and despised for his bluntness,” Huckabee tweeted. “But unlike Neville Chamberlain, he didn’t retreat. We had a Chamberlain for 8 yrs; in @realDonaldTrump we have a Churchill.”

Huckabee was apparently comparing former President Obama to British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, Churchill’s predecessor, who has historically been criticized for agreeing to surrender Czechoslovakia to Nazi Germany.

Twitter users quickly mocked Huckabee for making the comparison.
