Pundit Pap: Sunday morning lowlights – and a big highlight
CNN and FOX had the hot Sunday action this weekend.
On CNN’s State of the Union, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson ominously avoided the word “If”:
Tillerson says Trump wants diplomacy in North Korea: “Diplomatic efforts will continue until the first bomb drops” https://t.co/TuRBJ51eeJ

Tillerson also (testily) failed to deny that he had called dealmaker (unless it’s North Korea) Donald Trump a “f***ing moron”:
On FOX News Channel, Huckabee shows signs of [quite intentional] memory issues:
Former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said on Sunday that he could not recall whether President Donald Trump admitted sexually assaulting women even though the now-president was caught on a leaked Access Hollywood tape saying that he grabbed women by the “by the p*ssy.”
While appearing on Fox & Friends, Huckabee blasted former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for suggesting that Russia helped Trump win the election.
“There was also an uncomfortable moment when she talked about President Trump, how he admitted to being sexual assaulter,” Fox News host Abby Huntsman said. “She was asked about the [Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations] and she mentioned how her husband has — what he did was in the past. Anyone watching that, I think, was a little squirmy in their seat.”
“Has President Trump ever admitted to being a sexual assaulter?” Huntsman wondered.
“I don’t recall that that’s ever happened,” Huckabee said.
Back on CNN, Fareed Zakaria spent nearly a half hour with Hillary Clinton on GPS. Highlights:
- Hil says Putin is “not through” interfering with the US (or the West)
- She also tore into Trump’s stupid Iran and North Korea policies
