    That would be the likely response in reality. My joke relied on the idea that merely mentioning Trump or interacting with Trump's statements makes you worth investigating as if it were a crime. Under that mentality then they have a much larger target on their backs than most Trump supporters.

      Ah, well, I missed the humorous intent.
      Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
      But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
      Than a fool in the eyes of God

          It happens to me, too. My sense of humor is so dry that people can't always tell when I'm joking.

              My humor tends to be considered "strange" but I can usually get people to laugh. I have more issues in understanding when others are joking much more often.

                I sometimes have to watch myself because I find a lot of things funny when I shouldn't (at least from a social etiquette perspective).

                  I do that too. I have a strange sense of humor and it can be dark. People sometimes take it to mean I'm laughing at them but I'm usually just laughing at the absurdity of the situation.
