Huckabee Prefers Obama Presidency To Comcast

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee attacked cable network Comcast in a series of tweets April 17, one of which stated he would rather have former President Barack Obama back in the White House than have to deal with them.

Huckabee was a Republican presidential candidate in 2016 and an ally of President Donald Trump, Business Insider reports.

The former governor tweeted he would "rather have Obama back as president than have Comcast." 

This was only one of the criticisms he made.

"Is Comcast the United AL version of cable/internet/phone? Has anyone else had deplorable dealings with Comcast?" he wrote in another tweet.

"Mafia better service than Comcast," Huckabee added. "Sure they shoot you, but it's over with and they don't charge you for the bullet."

He alleged his 5-year-old grandson would be graduating college before Comcast turned up to carry out a repair and said its customer service was slower than "cold molasses pouring out of pinhole."

"Comcast is now operated by the N. Korean missile launch team. Epic failure!" he added.

Comcast responded to Huckabee's series of tweets, writing it was "happy to assist with your account concerns."

A company representative did not immediately respond to a request by Business Insider for further comment on the incident.

Huckabee was no less outspoken when he appeared on Fox News, where he was asked his opinion of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in the wake of a failed missile test by the country.

"I think there's a saying we say down here in the South -- he just ain't right," Huckabee said, according to the Daily Express. "And we're talking about Kim Jong Un. It's fair to say, he just ain't right. This is not a person who is rational, he does not think in the terms of statecraft, he thinks in the terms of publicity and showing off."

Huckabee proceeded to call the North Korean leader "seriously delusional" and "crazy." However, he warned that Kim posed a threat to the U.S.

"And so when he sees Tomahawk [missiles] hitting Syria, he sees MOAB hitting Afghanistan, he's not getting much attention," he added.

"So he decides he's going to make a power play so he has this big parade and military exercise on the 105th birthday of his grandfather and then he decides he's going to light the candle on a missile and show us how tough he is. The only problem is the missile blows up on the pad," added Huckabee.
