Here’s how Mike Huckabee is celebrating Cinco de Mayo, which tbh doesn’t sound like much fun:
For Cinco de Mayo I will drink an entire jar of hot salsa and watch old Speedy Gonzales cartoons and speak Spanish all day. Happy CdMayo!
— Gov. Mike Huckabee (@GovMikeHuckabee) May 5, 2017
He tweeted, “I will” which makes it a promise. Post video, governor!
Please post a video if you do https://t.co/SQcFo44bQv

Although many thought Huckabee’s joke was just a tad too much:
Trump: "Ok. It's Cinco de Mayo. Republicans, guys, please don't tweet anything. It won't work out for you."
Huck: "Hold my beer…." https://t.co/LG9ahwkLbg

And others assumed it was a fake. No such luck:

I've completely lost the ability to tell what's a joke anymore. https://t.co/ZoWCHJXBXP

I saw this and first thought: wow, they overdid it with the fake tweet. But it's his, from 10 hrs ago.
I… just can't. https://t.co/gChiRpM6ds

Exit question: How will he celebrate other holidays?
And for Chanukah he wears a fake beard, rubs his hands and counts shekels. https://t.co/EgxWykR1NG

Hopefully this is an end to the Huckabee Holiday Humor Hour.
