The above “joke” comes from fertile mind of Rupert Myers, who according to the bio at his personal website, is a barrister and writer who has written “for most UK publications and appeared across all major television and radio networks in connection with his writing.”
His many editors and producers must be splitting their sides over the jolly good knee slapper Myers posted to Twitter during President-elect Donald Trump’s news conference yesterday.
To make sure his 23,500 followers understood he meant the comment to be funny, Myers added, “Asking for humanity” as a punchline.
The bit was so hilarious that after The Daily Wire ran the tweet, Myers deleted it, prompting Daily Wire contributor Harry Khachatrian to ask why.
@Harry1T6 it was a joke that I quickly realised could be taken out of context. you’ve proved my point
