Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee had another epic fail in his attempt at online humor on Wednesday, tweeting a crack at CNN that mysteriously misspelled the three letters of the cable news giant.

“CNN now stands for Cardiac Care Network because their ppl are having heart attacks over Trump doing what Dems once demanded-fire Comey,” tweeted Huckabee, a two-time Republican candidate for president whose daughter Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a spokeswoman for the Trump White House.

Naturally, social media was quick to point out that Cardiac Care Network would spell out CCN, not CNN.

“You’re not great with acronyms, huh,” one commenter wrote, while another noted: “Word are hard.”

This isn’t the first time the Republican has caught flak for his Twitter humor. Just last week, he drew online fire over a joke that many found to rely too heavily on certain Mexican stereotypes.

“For Cinco de Mayo I will drink an entire jar of hot salsa and watch old Speedy Gonzales cartoons and speak Spanish all day.,” Huckabee tweeted. “Happy CdMayo!”

Here’s a sampling of the responses to his latest attempted punchline that seems to have punched right back:
