Mike Huckabee went whining on Fox Business Network after his appearance on The View, which also included his daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The interview went uncomfortably for the dishonest duo as the panelists offered legitimate criticisms of President Donald Trump.

“Their hatred for Donald Trump is so irrational that I think that comes across," Huckabee said of the female co-hosts, which included Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar.

Goldberg spoke out on The View about his critical comments, which were dripping in sexism.

“We worked hard to do a fair interview, and I resent that you would do that because you would never say that about Stephen Colbert. You would never say that about Trevor Noah.”

Conservative panelist Jebediah Bila also took a shot at Huckabee.

"You don’t get to say you came here and the ‘liberal media’ opposed you. I sat right here and it’s not irrational that I opposed Donald Trump. Donald Trump’s character was questionable.”
