It was hard to beat Donald Trump’s Cinco de Mayo taco bowl for the “Insulting Hispanics While Pretending To Honor Them” award but Mike Huckabee found a way. Heck, he didn’t even pretend much.
Today, Fox News contributor Huckabee tweeted:
For Cinco de Mayo I will drink an entire jar of hot salsa and watch old Speedy Gonzales cartoons and speak Spanish all day. Happy CdMayo!— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) May 5, 2017
This is nothing but mean-spirited. Considering that Huckabee is an ordained minister, it’s especially repulsive.
Not surprisingly, the Twitterverse did not take his tweet well.
So “good Christian” Huckabee attacked his critics instead of taking the personal responsibility he espouses for others. Plus, we got a another taste of his "humor."
To humorless trolls who soiled themselves re: my earlier tweet-stop following me;follow someone sensitive and kind like Stephen Colbert— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) May 5, 2017
Can’t wait for next year!
They’re quite dedicated.
