Not Getting Trump's Humor, And Pretending Not To Get Trump's Humor (And The Infamous Russia / Hillary's Email Joke)

He's no Obama, but Trump's occasionally pretty funny. A lot of progressives fail to get him, and fail to even recognize that he's joking. Or pretend to fail to, anyway.
   I agree with Althouse: he's pretty funny at points in the CPAC speech.
   I particularly approve of making fun of people who took his comment about Russia releasing Hillary's emails seriously. Or, again, pretended to take it seriously. Some people around here were actually arguing that it was some kind of actual evidence of collusion.
   Anyway--obviously--it was a joke. It was obviously a joke then. It's still obviously a joke. If you thought it was some kind of evidence of collusion...well...ya gotta sit down and have a long talk with yourself about this stuff. You've lost a firm grip on the facts in this vicinity. You need to admit that and try to correct the situation. There's not really a lot of shame in it. It happens to the best of us. And I'll admit that Trump could make the pope cuss. But still...when you count obvious jokes as evidence of treason...something's got to change.
