You know, the press could benefit by actually WATCHING the nonsense pap that Saturday Night Live spews every weekend. Then they’d understand why they have no sense of humor. They certainly dish it out, but they can’t take it.
After his Coast Guard graduation commencement address, President Trump was presented with a ceremonial saber. General Kelly joked, “You can use that on the press, sir.” “Yeah,” Trump replied.
The hyperliteral press predictably lost its ever-loving collective minds:

I fought with John Kelly in Iraq. This is shocking to me, and it's not a funny joke. Professionals don't say these kinds of things. https://t.co/ZGRX7MzT69

If it wasn't already clear, DHS John Kelly-joking about killing the press- not the champion of democratic norms he once appeared to be. https://t.co/dwGMcEUH9R

Wait…you made a pun with it but you called it literal? Even you have to see how moronic you sound.
