So he sarcastically stopped funding testing sites?
 
2020-06-26 11:07:13 AM  
Ahhhh....  Sarcasm.  The weasel word that allows you to say some of the nastiest things, then place blame on others when you are called out on it.

-You're fat and ugly!
-Whoa, that was mean.
-I was being sarcastic bro. Why are you so sensitive?
 
2020-06-26 11:08:52 AM  
Man, they aren't even trying anymore, are they?
 
2020-06-26 11:10:55 AM  
When asked if he was kidding he literally said "I never kid".

But it backfired so now he was totally just kidding.

We are so farked.
 
2020-06-26 11:11:47 AM  
he just does not get it. he is that stupid. he does not care about anyone except himself, and he cant even pretend that he does. he is not human.

Our President: a tenth rate hack comedian.
 
2020-06-26 11:21:02 AM  
I am fairly sure I made my standard, "he was being sarcastic, stupid libs" joke about his comment a couple of days ago.

I mean, I know the WH doesnt have a very deep bench of excuses to pick from over his atrocious gaffes, but they could vary it up a little.  This is just insultingly low effort.
 
2020-06-26 11:23:57 AM  
People who lack a sense of humor, especially when they're unable to laugh at themselves, shouldn't attempt comedy in front of others.

That said, I don't believe him. He'll lie about blatantly obvious things like crowd sizes, which means he'll lie about anything.
 
2020-06-26 11:27:37 AM  
He says it like it is except for when he doesn't.

It's funny joke because 120,000 people have died.
 
2020-06-26 11:28:51 AM  
Making jokes about a hundred thousand people dying would, and should, end any presidency.

We are so broken as a country.
 
2020-06-26 11:28:52 AM  
He is such a hollow f*ck. He said what the crowd wanted to hear. No he says this because he is not in front of the crowd and this is what is expedient. I hate people like that.

"What I'm saying should be interpreted in whatever way will make you vote for me!" - Donald Trump
 
2020-06-26 11:29:24 AM  
At least he's admitting his Coronavirus response has been a joke.
 
2020-06-26 11:30:11 AM  
Fauci said they're ramping up testing.

RAMP!

No wonder Trump is terrified! He was told there would be no ramps. We've all seen how he fears for his ass when confronted by a ramp.
 
2020-06-26 11:30:23 AM  
What a farking dope.
 
2020-06-26 11:30:58 AM  
Great, then he wants to expand testing.
 
2020-06-26 11:31:00 AM  
"Sometimes I jokingly say, or sarcastically say, if we didn't do tests we would look great," Trump said in an interview during a Fox News town hall with Sean Hannity. "But you know what? It's not the right thing to do."

"I don't kid."

Schrodinger's douchebag.
 
2020-06-26 11:31:01 AM  
Sarcasm that two him two days to clarify?  From signal to launch, our nuclear missiles take 8 minutes to reach their target.  He's an incredibly irresponsible and stupid human being.  A jellyfish would have made a better president.

When asked by CBS News' Weijia Jiang on Tuesday if he was kidding when he made those remarks, Mr. Trump replied, "I don't kid."

The Dunning-Kruger effect at work: he's too stupid to know which lie is correct.

Already had that chance and said you were dead serious. Nix the last word and just stroke out already, for fark's sake.

FrabjousDay: So he sarcastically stopped funding testing sites?


He disbanded international monitoring and threw out a literal pandemic playbook ironically.

some_beer_drinker: he just does not get it. he is that stupid. he does not care about anyone except himself, and he cant even pretend that he does. he is not human.


Now let this sink in: His supporters are even less intelligent...

Yeah, let's be sarcastic about testing an illness that has sickened a ridiculous number, and killed ~120k Americans. You know, about 10x the number of the "bungled" H1N1 response by the durty libz Obama and Biden...
 
2020-06-26 11:33:30 AM  
And 40% of Americans will never hate this monumental inert idiot.

I was kidding about saying I was kidding when I said I don't kid.

Trump is very meta.
 
2020-06-26 11:37:40 AM  
Here's a funny joke:
Kellyanne Conway said she has no idea what Ivanka Trump is putting in Donald J Trump's food but Ivanka promised to split some of the profits. They've both been watching Game of Thrones during the pandemic.

It's a funny joke, because it's about Donald J Trump dying painfully. The President said American deaths are a humorous subject, he's certain to adore this "joke".

Masterful use of this.

"It was a joke."
"I don't kid."
"It was sarcasm."
"I take no responsibility."
"I never said that."


It's like he truly believes that the moment he says something, all evidence -- video, audio, in-person witnesses -- that he said completely the opposite just a couple of days ago completely vanishes and is replaced with his new reality.

He doesn't just reject reality.  He thinks reality is whatever he says it is, even retroactively.
 
2020-06-26 11:38:27 AM  
But his followers like him because he says what he means.

He says it.  He means it.  Then he says he was being sarcastic.  Then he repeats it.

/I am voting for Trump
//I was being sarcastic
///but you already knew that

> Donald Trump on Thursday said he had "sarcastically" claimed that a decrease in coronavirus testing would lower U.S. infection rates,
> The president's comments come nearly a week after he claimed at a campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla., that he'd ordered a slowdown in coronavirus testing.


Umm an observation is different than an order so he really hasn't walked back his order claim.

Trump may go back to both when he hasn't had a handler coaching him for 10 minutes beforehand about what to say. He thinks that belittling testing works with his base.

Taken at face value (I don't, but whatever, let's pretend): THAT'S NOT BETTER, YOU PIECE OF shiat.

I don't understand what people don't understand about this. Saying (or writing) something appalling as a "joke" doesn't make you not an asshole.

You're an asshole because you said/wrote it. Regardless of whether you were "serious" or not.
 
2020-06-26 11:42:39 AM  
Joking about a major health crisis? Guess that makes him a doomchebag.

/I hate myself now
 
2020-06-26 11:43:59 AM  
He still thinks he can game the numbers to the electorate even in the face of total panic by his GOP supplicants in TX and FL.
 
2020-06-26 11:48:10 AM  

DrakhanV: So when he said he doesn't kid, he was kidding?


He said, "I don't, Kid."  Referring to the person asking the question.

No... Wait, that would still mean the same thing.

He said, "I-- Don't kid!" as he saw a kid about to walk into a busy street.

And the main stream media won't even mention that he saved that kid's life.  Typical.
 
2020-06-26 11:48:57 AM  
Lol. You libs will do anything to distract from sleepy Joe thinking millions have died.  DISTRACTGATE.

As if catching our president in another bald-faced lie is even news anymore.  Sad.  Low energy.

Does anybody get the meaning of what a so-called Noble (not Nobel) Prize is, especially as it pertains to Reporters and Journalists? Noble is defined as, "having or showing fine personal qualities or high moral principles and ideals." Does sarcasm ever work?
- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 26, 2020
No, Donald, not for you.
