In a recent Fox News Channel appearance, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee lashed out at CNN contributor David Axelrod.

His comments stemmed from Axelrod’s depiction of Huckabee’s daughter, outgoing White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, as “the spokesperson for a habitual liar.”

Huckabee claimed he was “shocked and surprised that he would go there to that degree,” going on to denigrate CNN in the process.

“That’s what they pay them to do, so I guess he earned his paycheck on that particular segment,” he said.
