We all like jokes about the other people, but when it comes to jokes about ourselves, not so much!

In today's world, cruelty is the norm. We have a president who slanders his words to offend people without consequences. We have comedians trying to be funny at the expense of others. Wouldn't it nice that if we could have funny jokes that were clean and not vulgar to the point someone is not offended? It is not good enough to say "they said something vulgar and we can get even with them for what they said"! Now, I am no saint and laugh along with some of the jokes especially about Trump and his staff. I also, laugh along with others about jokes that are made about me. What my point is, we as Americans need to remember that while some jokes are funny to some people, those same jokes are hurtful to others.

1. Either Mel Brooks or Carl Reiner said,

"Comedy is when you fall into a manhole. Tragedy is when I fall into a manhole."

2. Has anyone here actually been 'roasted?' A former workplace engaged in this with departing

coworkers. While meant to be " all in fun" they were biting and sometimes cringe-inducing, which is why this kind of humor is admittedly not my favorite.

But against public figures at an event honoring the second amendment? I think all is fair and all should be expected. Wolf certainly "gave" no more than all of us have "gotten" from this administration.
