“Have you ever been to a restaurant behind the scenes in the kitchen? I mean, I’m talking about a five-star restaurant,” he said on “Fox & Friends.”
Huckabee said it may seem “like there is chaos back there” in the kitchen but when the food is brought out, diners say it is “the best I have ever had.”
Huckabee continued with the dining analogy:
What I think people are missing is that this is not chaos, this is an administration who has a leader who has so many things going on, he’s pushing so many buttons and so many things are on his table, on his plate, that frankly, his own staff has a hard time keeping up with him. His stamina is simply remarkable.
Fox’s Mike Huckabee denies that the Trump White house is chaotic and incompetent by comparing it to “a five-star restaurant”: “It seems like there’s chaos back there” in the kitchen, but “what they called ‘chaos’ was actually a very careful execution of getting it done right.” pic.twitter.com/9qzTtGbR3F

Huckabee’s analogy was later picked apart on Twitter:
Yeah, a 5-Star restaurant at the epicenter of a 9.0 earthquake.
I swear the Huckabee family tree is really a telephone pole.

A 5-star restaurant that serves 5 kinds of hamberders of varying grease levels.
Huckabee needs a new joke writer. Or a new brain. Commander-in-chef, my ass! pic.twitter.com/5BCo78GZS0
