This Politician Is Being Dragged All Over Twitter For His Cinco De Mayo ‘Joke’

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee decided to use a moment of his time to commemorate Cinco de Mayo. However, the tweet is, well, pretty tone deaf and it has led to a backlash. It isn’t clear if Huckabee thought that this would be a funny joke or if he just wanted to stir the pot to get some attention. Either way, his claim to “drink an entire jar of hot salsa” to celebrate Cinco de Mayo bombed spectacularly. Here’s what happened:

This was how former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee commemorated Cinco de Mayo.

Now, this tweet could either be a very tone deaf joke about Cinco de Mayo or dude is just trying to get everyone riled up to get some attention.

Go ahead and get your shock out of the way now.

*deep breath in and deep breath out*

Needless to say, the tweet was not well received.

FYI, it’s cerdo racista.

Some people just didn’t know how to take the tweet.

Like, do you want us to be mad at you or are you just tweeting recklessly and not thinking twice about it?

For a couple people, they are reaching their wits’ end with these kinds of “jokes.”

*eye roll*

But some people pointed out that we really shouldn’t be surprised since Huckabee is always talking about food.

Seriously. Trevor Noah did a whole bit on “The Daily Show” about how everything Huckabee talks about comes back to food.

Speaking of food…


A few people offered him a drink to curb the spice from the whole jar of salsa he claims to be drinking.

While some people took him at his word…

Others were quick to clarify what they think Huckabee meant by “hot salsa.”

Not everyone was buying his tweet as authentic.

Can anyone name something Huckabee has done since his failed presidential bid?

And so many people weren’t able to see the tweet since Huckabee loves that block button.

If you are wondering what is up with the dog reference, here’s a quick article explaining the situation.

But this tweet sums up the sentiment of Huckabee’s tweet best:

And boo him they did.

Last Night’s Canelo Vs Chavez Memes Mostly Focused On Canelo’s Next Fight

The highly-anticipated fight between Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. was expected to be a classic Mexican boxing war, with both fighters trading shots to see who deserved bragging rights. Instead, it turned out to be a one-sided affair that showed Chavez Jr.’s size and reach advantage was no match for Alvarez, who controlled the fight from beginning to end.

From round one, Canelo was in charge:

Several times, it looked like Chavez wasn’t sure how to fight back.

As the fight progressed, it became clear that Chavez Jr. was out of his depth.

It also became clear that Chavez Jr. did not have the same fire in his belly that Chavez Sr. did.

Which led to this savage proclamation:

Once the final bell sounded, the result was a foregone conclusion.


Alvarez scored a unanimous decision, winning every round, 120 to 108.

Chavez Jr. probably felt relieved it was over.

During the post-fight interview, Canelo revealed who his next opponent would be. “Golovkin, you are next my friend,” said Canelo. Moments later, Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, made his way to the ring.

GGG and Canelo faced off in the ring and confirmed their fight was a done deal. GGG wished Canelo luck. Canelo replied: “La suerte es para los mediocres.”

Translation: “Luck is for the mediocre.”

Canelo’s trash talk made everyone forget about Chavez Jr.’s poor display.

And everyone became focused on the Canelo-GGG fight.

Canelo’s reply was so vicious…

It had people wiping the tears from their face and the sweat from their brows.

For some, the Canelo-GGG action was enough to make them forget they spent money on a one-sided fight.

After the fight, Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar de la Hoya posted a photo of the two fighters, confirming the fight was set for September 16, 2017.
