Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee loooooves to make jokes. Loves them. Tweets 'em out nonstop.
They're often mighty awkward "dad jokes" without much of a punchline.
And his latest... Well, folks, it's a treat.
Huckabee tried to deliver a chuckle nugget about the NFL #TakeAKnee protests. Unfortunately for him, and fortunately for us, this joke didn't quite stick the landing.
On October 9, Mike Huckabee tweeted this "joke":
I was at public event and ppl starting "taking a knee." I was going to walk out in protest, but wife told me it was okay-we were at church.— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@Gov. Mike Huckabee)1507591901.0
TV writer Jess Dweck was quick to point out that what the joke actually says is literally the opposite of its intention:
Mike Huckabee is so bad at jokes he accidentally made the opposite point and proved why kneeling is respectful https://t.co/1IM8w1ux9Q— Jess Dweck (@Jess Dweck)1507615613.0
