Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) had an even more colorful reaction to Tuesday night's Democratic primary debate than Donald Trump.

Huckabee, a presidential candidate, fired off a number of tweets, including a somewhat crude joke about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont) and North Koreans eating dogs.

"I trust @BernieSanders with my tax dollars like I trust a North Korean chef with my labrador!" Huckabee exclaimed.

In another tweet, he quipped that Sanders' "socialist math is as solid and sound as El Chapo’s prison security."

He also derided Democrats for warning about climate change by characterizing their argument as "a sunburn is worse than a beheading. It's nonsense!"

Most of Huckabee's tweetstorm is below:
