Are Trump-is-gay-for-Putin jokes funny?

“No. I think it’s cheap and stupid. As a society, we should be past that. There’s nothing inherently funny or insulting about men being in a same-sex relationship. And there certainly are other ways to mock Trump and Putin.”


David Murter

“No. Jokes about sexual preference aren’t appropriate at all. It doesn’t matter how much you dislike Trump — or anyone. Bringing someone’s sexual preference into a joke is never funny.”


Daniel Novic

“No. They should be avoided because it puts LGBT people in a negative light. LGBT people shouldn’t be the brunt of jokes. That’s not something to joke about. I can definitely understand why people would find those jokes offensive.”

“Yes, people should lighten up and enjoy themselves. Don’t take shit so seriously. I find satire valuable. It helps us as a society. God knows we need all the help we can get to deal with Trump’s bullshit.”
