One of Donald Trump's biggest supporters has been former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, whose daughter is currently working in the White House as the president's press secretary. In an attempt to use possibly humor to downplay the Russian investigation, Huckabee compared his recent colonoscopy to the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, while name-dropping Michael Jackson.

Huckabee on Russian probe

After Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton to become the 45th President of the United States, it didn't take long before several well-respected news outlets and government agencies came to the conclusion that Russia hacked into the election.

In the weeks that followed, reports noted that Russia didn't just hack into the election, but did so with the goal of helping to elect Trump. Since then, Trump and his team have done everything in their power to dismiss the allegations, accusing the reports of being "fake news" and repeatedly claiming that there's been "no collusion" between the White House and the Kremlin.

One of the loudest voices outside of the White House to defend the president over allegations of working with Russia has been Mike Huckabee, who took to Twitter on April 3 in an awkward attempt at humor. "Had a colonoscopy today. My doctor was actually Russian. Now THAT is what I call RUSSIAN MEDDLING!" Huckabee tweeted. "They put me to sleep w/ same stuff Michael Jackon used," he added, while taking a shot at how the famous singer passed away from a drug overdose.

Huckabee then concluded, "When I woke up, I MOON-walked right out of the hospital!"

Twitter reacts

After posting his odd and curious tweet about Russian meddling and his colonoscopy, Mike Huckabee received massive criticism in return. "So the doctor discovered what we all knew? You're full of sh*t, right. I see where sister wife lying Sara gets her genes.

You're a POS," one tweet read.

"Should have given you the same dose as Michael Jackson," a Twitter user wrote.

"Hahahaha! It’s funny because Russians meddled with our elections, Donald Trump won’t do anything about it, and Sarah Huckabee lies about it constantly. Hilarious!" another tweet added. "First off, your son tortured a dog. Second, your daughter will end up in federal prison with the rest of this administration. Third, have you ever heard a joke before? Because this isn’t what they look like," comedian Zack Bornstein tweeted.

"An a**hole got a colonoscopy and you think that's news?" a social media user wrote. "I'm sure Michael Jackson's children will appreciate this. How very Christian of you," a follow-up tweet added.
