“Jesus would slap the shit out of you.”
Mike Huckabee just learned the hard way. You don’t mess with the Notorious RBG.
Over the weekend, Mike Huckabee tried to make a completely tasteless joke about 84-year-old Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. And it didn’t go well. Twitter skewered him for it.
It's not fair that ppl are criticizing Justice Ginsberg for skipping SOTU! Security concerns wouldn't allow her to bring CPAP machine into House Chamber. pic.twitter.com/9GOR4NlHkr

I’d also like to point out that Huckabee didn’t even spell her name right.
In 2015, Justice Ginsburg famously nodded off during one of Obama’s State of the Union addresses. She later said that she dozed off because she had a little too much wine with dinner before the address.
Huckabee’s tweet was in response to news reports that Ginsburg won’t be attending Donald Trump’s first State of the Union speech on Tuesday night. While Huckabee is making stupid jokes about her health, Ginsburg is busy with a packed schedule and a nationwide speaking tour. And, on Tuesday night, she will be giving her own speech in Rhode Island.
Mike Huckabee might think it’s funny to make fun of Ginsburg’s age. But, based on the responses his stupid joke got on Twitter, I’d say that Americans don’t think he’s funny at all. Ginsburg is one of our national treasures. Huckabee should be ashamed of himself.
Today’s #PIPAward goes to @GovMikeHuckabee – so politically intoxicated that he would make this despicable, tasteless joke. Sober up and stop embarrassing yourself and your family. #PIP = politically intoxicated person https://t.co/ktjqTKDyek

Mike Huckabee tweeted something terrible in an attempt to get uncle Trump to notice him.
It was a cheap shot from a sad man who's been tossed aside like the garbage human he is.
Anyway, here's a photo of him juxtaposed with a lumpy potato with his eyes and jowls on it. pic.twitter.com/GAn680ZIEY

This is repugnant garbage. Also, who wants to bet Ruth Bader Ginsburg could hold a plank longer than Mike Huckabee? https://t.co/XGTtfLYmjK

Mike Huckabee would wave the white flag of surrender after only a few minutes of Ruth Bader Ginsberg's workout regimen. https://t.co/32xEyKZd9K

Mike Huckabee seems intent on trying to one-up Trump in bad behavior. https://t.co/wSVDXnhksS

Despicable tweet. She's more capable and intelligent than the entire Trump administration together.

YOU are a disgusting POS, Shuckabee, the father of an animal abuser and chronic liar.@GovMikeHuckabee

Way to keep it classy, Huckabee. Of course, considering your daughter’s soulless behavior, I can’t say I’m surprised.

You’d sing a different tune if an insensitive comment like yours was made about YOUR WIFE’S WEIGHT, and sense of style, or your daughter’s WAYWARD WANDERING EYE, poor social and fashion skills, and capacity for falsehoods. Shame on you, Governor, & you claim to be Christian .
