Former Arkansas Governor-turned TV Host Mike Huckabee reverted to old tactics and took aim at Ruth Bader Ginsburg with a tasteless tweet.
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

The beloved Supreme Court Justice announced her intention to boycott Trump’s State of the Union. Huckabee, who couldn’t even be bothered to spell her name right, responded with a low blow insult.
When you’ve served in the highest court in the land for almost 25 years, then maybe you can criticize, Mike Huckabee. But it looks like your resume comes up short in a side by side comparison. Huckabee served as Governor of Arkansas until 2007. He has since been a host of his own show “Huckabee,” on TBN.
This isn’t the first time Huckabee has resorted to misusing medical conditions as slurs. In 2015, during his campaign for the Republican nomination for President, Huckabee criticized Justice John Roberts for two very different decisions he delivered in the Supreme Court. He characterized Roberts as “Schizophrenic,” for displaying symptoms of a split personality.
Huckabee ran afoul of mental health advocates, who corrected the misconception that schizophrenia symptoms include split personalities – that’s dissociative identity disorder – and for using the condition as an insult.
The internet rallied in support of Ginsburg and swiftly shut down Huckabee.
This is repugnant garbage. Also, who wants to bet Ruth Bader Ginsburg could hold a plank longer than Mike Huckabee? https://t.co/XGTtfLYmjK

Reverend Huckabee and his god, the way he treats people, and the way he acts could largely be associated with the respsonse of the #exvangelical millennials.
Let me be clear… this is unbecoming of the office of pastor. https://t.co/0FfRqFtw6U

There’s trolling for “librul tears”, and then there’s sheer inhumanity. @GovMikeHuckabee has clearly demonstrated his utter lack of empathy for anyone outside of his ideological limits. https://t.co/6iYw2WUoA5
