Mike Huckabee Made A Joke About Ted Cruz’s Porno And Twitter Is Amusingly Not Amused (Tweets)

There’s a reason why right-wing evangelical Christians aren’t celebrated for their humor: Mike Huckabee’s tweet in defense of Ted Cruz is a prime example.

As we reported earlier here at American News X, on Tuesday morning astute Twitizens noticed Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) was trending, and it didn’t take long for them to find out why. Someone who keeps a beady eye on his Twitter profile noticed he’d just “liked” a tweet with a porn video. Since Ted Cruz is a sanctimonious prig who’s got no issue with attacking the sexuality of others, the Internet had a field day with this discovery.

He later claimed, “It was a staffing issue, and it was inadvertent. It was a mistake, it was not a deliberate action.” But only one person appears to believe him: Christian minister, political pundit, and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.

To show his camaraderie and support for his fellow fundie, Mike Huckabee tweeted this: “Leave @tedcruz alone! He didn’t like PORN-he liked CORN and it was his first overture to Iowa voters for 2020! Sheesh! Case closed!”

Seriously, you can’t make this stuff up.

Um, no, Mike Huckabee. It was definitely porn. From a Twitter feed called “Sexuall Posts,” as in someone misspelling their search for “sexual posts” and stumbling on this accidentally-on purpose.

Sigh Hersh snarked (correctly) about Mike Huckabee not knowing what jokes are.

But wait, are we sure that was a joke? What was that?

Ken poked fun at Mike Huckabee’s and Ted Cruz’s stance on abortion.

Others couldn’t resist making some off-color jokes.

After all, how does Mike Huckabee know what Ted Cruz likes?


Is “Corn Hub” really a thing?

where do people find this stuff?


But when push comes to shove, some of us just want him to just stop.

Oh, and Serendipiterry just trotted out that hilarious “Bad Lip Reading” video.

And by the way, Mike Huckabee…That tweet isn’t helping Ted Cruz out one bit.

Very well then. I will not retweet Mike Huckabee. I will not retweet Mike Huckabee…

Yet these scathing tweets don’t hold a candle to the ones Ted Cruz received earlier today. For starters, there was that time back in2007 when he tried to ban sex toys in Texas when he was solicitor general there.  When people protested that this was unconstitutional, his office released this statement:

There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship.

No wonder Craig Mazin — Ted Cruz’s one-time roommate at Harvard — came up with this snappy rejoinder the last time that topic came up.

To which Candygram 4 Mongo responded in the only way possible.

But The Daily Beast writes The Daily Show‘s Trevor Noah insists there’s no way Ted Cruz was liking or watching that porn video. Mainly, because that would prove he’s an actual human being instead of an alien reptile disguised as a human with hair, clothes, teeth, and flesh-toned silly putty.

Oh, and there’s this.

Luckily, TMZ has got some helpful advice.

Oh, and back to Mike Huckabee…
