The timing could not have been better for the lagging campaign of Mike Huckabee, whose appearance at a rally for Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis coincided with her release from jail on contempt charges.

The former Arkansas governor — who played no part in the anti-gay government worker’s release — grabbed a prime spot, escorting Davis out of jail with her lawyer, Mat Staver taking her other arm as Davis’ 4th — and 2nd  — husband Joe trailed behind.

Standing before the famous segmented Ben Franklin snake poster with the admonition to “Join or die,” Huckabee and his wife Janet posed for a picture with Davis and her overalls-wearing husband which his campaign posted to Twitter. As might be expected Twitter commenters reacted to it with the derision and mockery that Twitter is known for.
