Misery loves company

THAT’S NOT FUNNY.

According to (Scott) Adams, the common thread between why so many people believe these claims to be true without any evidence (or even in the face of counterevidence) could be that they simply have no sense of humor.

Adams described a conversation he had on Twitter with an actress who said she believed the claims in Goldberg’s article because of the joke Trump made in 2015 about John McCain not being a war hero because he was “captured.”

“This is typical Trump, he is a dumb, hate-filled liar and misogynist!” Scott’s Twitter correspondent said.

“When I saw that I commented back [that] Trump told a Chris Rock joke about McCain because Chris Rock actually did that same joke before Trump did,” Adams replied. “And then I said, you literally want to overthrow the government because you don’t recognize a joke. That’s actually what happened, this is someone who wants to get rid of Trump at any cost in part because she doesn’t recognize a joke. So, I said maybe the problem’s on your end.”

She responded: “B.S. Circus with Trump’s trained Monkeys defending his stupidities. What’s wrong with you people? Who cares if Chris Rock made a joke?”

“See where this is going?” Scott asked, holding back a laugh. “She has now acknowledged that the president told a joke. She did not know until I explained it that it was a joke. So now she has to change her objection from being a horrible thing he said, to ‘Yeah, it was a joke but it was still horrible, and here’s why.'”

She responded: “A president must know better than to say something like that! There are better things to quote as president, how do you fall for this crap?”

“Now, she also said earlier that Trump had no sense of humor, therefore it couldn’t be a joke. To which I pointed out that he is the most successful stand-up comedian in the history of humanity. His rallies with gigantic audiences are literally stand-up comedy. He does it to entertain. He literally says funny things and his audience laughs. And they go because he will say funny things that will make them laugh. He’s literally the most successful stand-up comedian in the history of civilization if you look at the numbers of people who go in person,” Adams revealed. “You have to admit the reason the crowd is so big is because he brings entertainment and humor.”

The unhappier the joyless, juiceless Lefty prigs are, the better for the rest of us.

    1. They certainly are. I think Adams has a good point here. Leftists tend to define themselves as the Smart People, the Cool Kids, just because they are leftists. It is key to their entire self image and world view. So the concept that they are missing the joke with Trump violates their very sense of self — it would mean they are NOT the “smart” people. And that just can not be possible! To admit it would destroy them.

      This same dynamic is why they insist that every Republican president or presidential nominee (while they are running, at least; once defeated they can be ‘rehabilitated’) is a moron, a doofus, barely able to string sentences together, etc. Thier opponents must be stupid losers, because they are the Smart Winners ™. It is right there in their mental script, after all.

      1. What I find most funny is the progs thinking they are the “educated” group, not understanding that their piece of paper certifying they received a degree in social grievance is pretty much useless, not even good for toilet paper. Might make a decent bird cage liner. And then they tell me I need to listen to the scientists… Somehow, in their twisted world view the scientists are incapable of telling a lie, of deceiving for political/monetary gain. When in fact almost all the so called scientists they listen to routinely lie to them.

        They’re just brilliant, these rocket scientists of the prog world. Just effin brilliant. Everything they touch turns to shit.

        1. But they meant well! And isn’t that what really matters, rather than the smoking ruins they leave behind wherever they get power?

            1. The Universe works exactly the same for the individual as the collective group.
              Science is the domain of the individual mind working with other individual minds who all use their own intellect.

              When Science becomes consensus while admitting power differences, it become a collective, and therefore unscientific, pursuit.
              If one “scientist” can posit something and a consensus form around that, even though one lone voice can get contrary results but be ignored, then it is no longer Science.
