It’s Becoming Clear That Trump Doesn’t Know What Sarcasm Means
In late March, when Trump was informed that Sen. Mitt Romney was in quarantine after being exposed to Sen. Rand Paul, who had tested positive for COVID-19, he told a reporter, “Gee, that’s too bad,” according to the Washington Post. The reporter then asked Trump, “Do I detect sarcasm there, sir?” Trump replied, “No, none whatsoever.” A couple of days later, when Romney shared that he had tested negative for COVID-19, the president, actually employing sarcasm correctly, tweeted, “This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!” Trump refers to Romney as a “RINO,” which means “Republican In Name Only,” because the Utah senator has spoken against the president and voted to impeach him.
