On Monday morning's edition of "Fox & Friends," former Arkansas Governor and Fox News host Mike Huckabee responded to President Barack Obama's remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast last week, arguing that "everything [Obama] does is against what Christians stand for."

"And he's against the Jews in Israel," Huckabee continued. "The one people who can know that they have his undying, unfailing support would be the Muslim community, and it doesn't matter whether it's the radical Muslim community or the more moderate Muslim community."

To prove his point, Huckabee referenced Obama's State of the Union, which referenced climate change as a major security threat to the United States.

"I assure you that a beheading is much worse than a sunburn," Huckabee said. "And this president couldn't watch a Western from the '50s and know the difference between the good guys and the bad guys even if John Wayne was starring in the film."
