No -- nothing wrong with the left sense of humor -- Trump's is bad so the Left doesn't get the joke because the joke is bad -- that's why they don't find humor in Trump.

People on the right sharply criticized Obama for saying that he wished he could make laws without congress as a boost to dictators around the world. What is the difference between Obama's and Trump's comments?

You can't blast Obama and then accept Trump's comments.
He's supposed to be the President, not the class clown.

Being supportive of an autocrat is also in poor tastes. For a country that champions democracy, that's the opposite.

I'd bet all presidents have told jokes while serving as president. Jokes in and of themselves aren't necessarily bad.

These people will support anything Trump spouts.

Is taking the guns first and due process second still a good idea?

He's hilarious, just not as president. Please send him back to being a "reality show" entertainer. Please.

He's not just bad at humour, but we won't get into that will we?

We all know there are some truth to all jokes and Trump is speaking is mind here. A part of him probably wish he can serve for life so there's no way for us to remove his sorry hiney from office. We all know how much he admires and aspires to be his like his boss Putin.

How would they react had Obama said it? First the frothing at the mouth, followed by fox news spending 2 weeks on it, and finally, a congressional investigation costing 47 million so they could keep it in the headlines.

The left does political humor very well and it's actually the right that has difficulty with it. Fox news tried an ill-fated attempt about 10 years ago because of their acknowledgment of the effectiveness of Jon Stewart.

Since Trump won the left lost its sense of humor. You are all in some sort of mourning that never seems to end. You take everything Trump says and does very literally.

Who cares if Trump tries his hand at humor. All presidents do and most fail.

I am not a trumpie, Libertarian here but I am not losing sleep over all this like the left is.

Realize that when you all on the left are constantly debating this minutia regarding Trump its hard to take you seriously on things of real importance.

Relax.

I think he knows what the left says that he wants to be some sort of dictator and he is poking fun at you. Best to let it go. But you can't do that can you?

Was he joking about about taking away guns from people?
