Donald Trump brought out his legendary sense of humor during a Republican National Committee fundraiser at Mar-a-Lago Friday night … where “legendary sense of humor” means unfunny blackface “joke” from a guy who rarely smiles and never laughs unless it’s at himself insulting someone.

Guests at the fundraiser weren’t allowed to have their phones out, lest anyone record Trump or another speaker saying something that wouldn’t play well outside a room full of wealthy Republicans. But many of them seem to have rushed out to leak stories about the event immediately afterward, with two sources telling Axios about what one called a “bizarre tangent” in which he described seeing Secret Service agents on the White House lawn over Christmas. “They’re in blackface,” Trump said, in what Axios described as a joking reference. And because of that, “so maybe they have to take them away.”

Ha ha ha, gosh, it sure is funny comparing Secret Service agents wearing dark masks for stealth purposes with people wearing blackface for racist purposes. What a knee-slapper.

At the same event, Trump also “said he didn’t understand how any Jew could vote for a Democrat these days,” which is legitimately if unintentionally hilarious, since 79 percent of Jewish people voted for Democrats in 2018.
