LOL! That IS funny, isn't it?

Loved the artwork from Pearl Jam, too....burning White House and Trump dead on the lawn. Hey, when you govern like a traitor and a tyrant, the way Donnie Dump does, you make enemies of the American people.

He'll realize that more fully after the mid-terms...

I think something of that color and fat content and bloated-ness would float, but I am not physicist.

From the summary that does not sound like appropriate invective for a national politician...even though Republican officials behave like that all the time. Better to leave jokes like that for non politicians, imo.

Q: Do you know the difference between a crisis and a catastrophe?
A: A crisis is if Rep Alcee Hastings were lynched. A catastrophe would be if the rope broke.

Two sick unfunny jokes about President Trump and Rep Hastings. I don't wish any harm to Alcee Hastings btw. Which is unlike those on the left who suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome.

That's rich coming from a barrel of pig guts like Alcee Hastings.

The man is so corrupt a democrat controlled Senate impeached and removed him from the bench.

I lived in his gerrymandered district 300 miles away but that was when Crats controlled the state - being a disgraced grafter is no bar to election in that snakepit.

He is the poster boy for shameless Crat corruption

A slob like Alcee Hastings making a sleazy joke is the only funny part about it.

Hastings is another person of color who takes his marching orders from his white plantation owners, 150 years ago he would of been the good "boy" that ratted out the rest of the slaves who wasn't working hard enough in the fields so he could play favor with his master, he's a traitor to the black race like all the black politians in the democrat party.

Funny was when the event ended and the guests found their stripped cars sitting on blocks.

Alcee Hastings opened a used car parts store the next day and they were able to get parts to restore their cars at discount prices

Going by the "disagree" icons on my above conjecture, "I think something of that color and fat content and bloated-ness would float, but I am no physicist," the right wingers are of the opinion that Ill Duce Trump would sink.

I am always open to feedback and discussing different opinions regarding buoyancy and politics.

Ahhhhh Alcee Hastings is a funny guy who wants to make politically incorrect jokes...

I wonder if he's heard this one?
What's long and hard on a 18 year old Black man Al?
THE FIRST GRADE!!!

Ain't insulting, degrading humor just grand.

Hey Al...
Does your a$$ get jealous of all that $hit that comes out of your mouth.

Hey Al... I love what you've done with your hair!!! How'd you get it to stick out of your nose like that.

Allllllllll... I'd kick the crap out of you but that would be animal abuse.

It's soooo nice when some spoiled narcissistic liberal opens up the platform for insults and put downs. Thanks Al! But I guess MY "politically incorrect" is probably less acceptable to lefties than his "politically incorrect", right?

Racism... approved by the left.(Trayvon, Mikey and the BLMKK)
Sexism... approved by the left (Bubba the rapist horndog)
Violence... approved by the left (Antifa fascists)

Alcee Hastings was tried for accepting bribes from mobsters in return for lenient treatment in his court.

He beat the charge but his guilt was so OJ that a democrat controlled Senate stepped in and removed him from the bench.

He still claims he was railroaded because he is an innocent black man falsely accused of a crime

ANY Black man is presumed to be the victim of rayssssist oppression. Except Clarence Thomas and Ben Carson of course. Black people are forbidden to be conservative. Listening to conservatives is treated the same as "talking to the white woman" was seventy years ago. Only today the mob that wants to go out and "get a rope" are outraged butt hurt lefties instead of White racists..

It's no surprise that a right-wing racist would make a racist joke about a black Representative, either. Next time, you try the rope FIRST...

Every black American is a victim of racism, but some still sell out to the white man - for example, Unca Clarence Thomas and Unca Ben Carson. And isn't it great that they can do so in this wonderful, FREE country?

White racists still want dead black men. Don't lie, you puke.

It's curious how mindless wimps like you think calling someone gay is an insult.

If I were gay I'd scratch your eyes out!

That's more likely than your smear of him, to be sure. Righties LOVE their smears, especially of black men.

Love it when some vicious, right-wing racist (but I repeat myself) PUKE tells racist jokes, threatens black men, attacks liberals for "racism" hypocritically, and generally acts like a drunken Klansman at a cross-burning.

Hint: Next time tie yourself to the cross BEFORE they burn it, puke...

Race-baiting is all I expect from a POS like you, obviously. You still want black Americans in the fields, just admit it, you fake negro! JUST ADMIT IT!
