At his rally in Montana the other night, President Trump said he would pay Elizabeth Warren one million dollars if she would take a DNA test to prove she is Indian.
When I heard the clip, I laughed.
Because, that’s what you do when someone tells a joke that’s funny.
Now, I realize with the state of comedy today many Americans are unfamiliar with jokes. We hear so few of them.
But for some reason, the geniuses at NBC News felt the need to fact check President Trump’s joke.
DNA tests are not widely accepted as proof of tribal citizenship — in part because the DNA could not show a specific tribe, only some genetic markers from Native people — and are more unreliable for Native Americans than for other ancestral regions. https://t.co/D9KFhDaeN8

“I just flew in from Seattle and boy are my arms tired!”
NBC News: “Fact Check: flying is not possible for humans. The only methods of air transport available to human beings would not put stress or undue exhaustion on the arms.”
“I tell ya. I get no respect.”
NBC News: “Fact Check: Though respect is not something that can be quantified, we rate this statement as mostly false. As this was said before a large audience of paying customers, it is clear that he does garner a certain level of respect. Someone with no respect would not be able to attract an audience of that size (see also CNN).”
As Salena Zito famously said of Candidate Donald Trump back in September of 2016:
“When he makes claims like this, the press takes him literally, but not seriously; his supporters take him seriously, but not literally.”
See, we get it.
But the truth is, so does NBC News.
They know President Trump is joking about Elizabeth Warren’s claims of being Cherokee to advance her career.
It’s what we on Planet Earth refer to as “mockery.”
But what grates their cheese over at NBC News is Democrats are to be treated like sacred cows.
One mustn’t make jokes about them.
Nor should anyone ever mock them.
And the reason is obvious.
Satire and humor are powerful weapons against the Left mostly because they’re humorless dinks.
After all, their first response to any joke is to shriek, “That’s not funny!!!!!!”
In April of 2013, I had the chance to see Ann Coulter speak at Syracuse University.
And during the Q&A, a Muslim woman in a hijab stepped up to the microphone and asked if Ann really told Sean Hannity that the wife of Tamerlan Tsarnaev should be arrested just for wearing a hijab.
Just hearing the question made me laugh.
It’s just the kind of joke Ann Coulter would say.
Ann’s response was priceless.
“That’s what we call a joke.”
And in one voice, the petulant, angry Leftists who populated the back of the room bellowed, “That’s not funny!!!!!!”
Ann responded, “The feminist slogan has now become the slogan for the entire Democrat Party: ‘That’s not funny!!’”
I think a lot of the reason the Left hates Donald Trump is because he’s a funny guy.
And he uses humor to burrow under their skin and make them crazy.
But we get it.
We know when he is pointing out absurdity by being absurd.
And we know when he’s making what humans possessed with a sense of humor call “a joke.”
Most importantly, we know when he’s dead serious.
By fact-checking this, all NBC News accomplished was turning themselves into an even bigger joke.
