Mike Huckabee went on the Iowa-based talk show hosted by Steve Deace, where he made a statement saying that President Obama has done “things worthy of impeachment.” He also made a statement implying that President Obama was “acting like God.”

Steve Deace asks Huckabee, “Has [President Obama] done anything worth being impeached for, in your view?” Huckabee responds saying, “Absolutely, There’s no doubt that he has done plenty of things worthy of impeachment. The fact is though, we don’t have the senate, so, of you impeached him in the house and it went  to trial in the senate, it would never even get to the board, [be]cause, Harry Reid has been sitting on 357 pieces of legislation passed through  the House republicans.”

Huckabee then went on to say, “ there are a number of things that president has done in the overuse of executive power, complete ignoring of the law. Even his own law.” Huckabee then cites changes to the Affordable Care Act through the use of executive power as an example.

Huckabee then later says to Deace that we, “do not have a border, we do not have a country.” Huckabee backs these claims because border security operates forty miles within the United States border, which is causing chaos due to there being a lack of a “wall.”

Huckabee claimed that it is solely the responsibility of churches to take in children who have crossed the border and that it is the government’s job to secure the border. He summarized this point by implying that President Obama is acting like god. He stated “The government is going to have to secure the border. There’s a big difference between what we owe God and what we owe Caesar, and right now we’ve got Caesar acting like God.”

Huckabee then blatantly lies about the number of Israelis killed by Palestinians killed by suicide bombers, saying, “they went from 1000 terrorist suicide bombers a year to 0 once they put that fence up.” Huckabee was suggesting that the United States create a border similar to the one that separates Palestine and Israel. He also seemed to be conflating people who cross the border into the United States illegally with suicide bombers.
