Mike Huckabee says CBS is embroiled in a "real scandal" for editing an interview with Bill Clinton that removed a reference to Hillary Clinton having "frequently" collapsed in the past.

"In an interview with CBS's Charlie Rose, Bill Clinton either made a slip of the tongue or let the cat out of the bag, depending on what you believe about his wife Hillary's health," the former Arkansas governor said Wednesday on his Facebook page.

"An unedited video shows that in trying to brush off her near-collapse at the 9/11 memorial, Bill said, 'Frequently — well not frequently, rarely — but on more than one occasion, over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing happened to her when she got severely dehydrated.'

"Yet when the interview aired, CBS had helpfully edited the first four words out of the tape, so it appeared that he never said she had 'frequently' collapsed in the past."

Huckabee, a former GOP presidential candidate who supports Donald Trump, said it is "entirely possible" that the former president "did simply misspeak."

"But the real scandal is how CBS was so willing to edit the tape to keep viewers from seeing the slip and deciding for themselves," Huckabee said.

"To illustrate the bias, if Melania Trump had been caught on tape saying that her husband 'frequently — no, I mean never — says racist things,"' do you think CBS would have edited that or run it 24/7?

"At least Melania would have the excuse that English isn't her native language. But then, objectivity is no longer the media's native language, either."
