The Real Joke May Be Himself

Staff writer Amy S. Rosenberg of The Philadelphia Inquirer/Daily News reports from New Jersey that

"Just asking?" Atlantic County Republican Freeholder John Carman wrote cheekily on his Facebook page, as he posted an image of a woman in the kitchen that asked: 

"Will the women's protest be over in time for them to cook dinner?"

And no, the good news is not that, after Facebook commenters, the Atlantic County Democratic chairman, and other individuals slammed the remark, Carman (on the left in Fox News/Instagram photo above) took it down. Prior to that, he maintained in an interview "some people just have to get a sense of humor."

It was a joke when  Saturday Night Live's Katie Rich tweeted of one of Donald Trump's sons "Barron will be this country’s first homeschool shooter." Not funny, and making little sense, it was no doubt meant as a joke and she was suspended amidst demands for her removal by 79,000 people on change. org.

They did not have much of a sense of humor nor much tolerance for a very bad joke Presumably someone of the left, Rich profusely apologized as expected.   Not so Carman, given that

"I will support anyone who wants to march," he said. "I am a proponent for women’s rights. With that said, some of these marchers, with their vulgarity and replicas of female body parts on your head, they hurt the cause rather than help it. I’m saying 'Come on, really?' That's the part that turns you off." 

Vulgarity? Someone, evidently, can't take a joke.
