Mike Huckabee is the former Governor of Arkansas (I have met him on several occasions, sadly), a three-time failed Presidential candidate, a major proponent of covenant marriages, and the father to the current deputy White House press secretary and wannabe Kellyanne Conway, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who made the talk-show rounds over the course of one weekend three weeks ago before apparently taking up residence with the wife of David Miscavige.
And now we can add failed Twitter comedian to Mike Huckabee’s bio:
Breaking News! Jimmy Dean Sausage Co will be renamed GORSUCH SAUSAGE because he's grinding up some Democrat Senators into PURE PORK SAUSAGE!— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) March 21, 2017
That’s not a joke. It is a war crime. I saw parts of the Gorsuch hearing. There was no grinding of sausage. That man is as mild as they come; I don’t even know if he could chew an entire sausage without spitting it into his cloth napkin. He looks like the kind of guy who believes sausage is beneath him, who believes sausage is reserved for plebeian riffraff. He’s clearly a Canadian bacon sort of guy, if that. And why identify the sausage as PURE PORK? There is no appropriation of government spending for local projects involved in a confirmation hearing — he’s confusing his branches of government. Who would even eat GORSUCH SAUSAGE? It sounds like the sort of thing one would feed to competition dogs before Mike Huckabee’s son turned them … never mind.
It was a bad joke, y’all, and Twitter made sure to call it out.
Mike Huckabee has the sense of humor of someone who was trapped underwater for two minutes and then forced to tell jokes at gunpoint.— Kashana (@kashanacauley) March 21, 2017
Mike Huckabee's tweets remind me of the guy who signs up for Improv 101 so he has a place to do his Borat impression.— Ari Scott (@ariscott) March 21, 2017

Mike Huckabee might be painfully unfunny, but at least he's also terrible at politics— ♡ brian essbe ♡ (@SortaBad) March 21, 2017
It takes concerted effort to be this not funny. I feel like he workshopped this for an uncomfortable length of time. https://t.co/ZyarImzE0P— Jane Coaston (@cjane87) March 21, 2017
SAUSAGE. I SAID SAUSAGE 3 TIMES. The joke is about SAUSAGES. SAUSAGE. https://t.co/TUFpWlv7BS— Wu Ming (@twlldun) March 21, 2017
This is, of course, the latest (and worst) in Huckabee’s lengthy history with failed Twitter jokes.
