Even Dinsdale Was Frightened of Doug

Apparently this was what Trump was aiming for when he accused President Obama of being a founder of a major terrorist organization:

Oh, we all get sarcasm Donald. Do you get the fact that you were repeatedly asked about your accusation and for a whole day you said you were "literal," which is kind of the opposite of "sarcasm".

I get the feeling Trump would totally pussy out if he ever met Doug Piranha.

Palin: Doug. (shaking, takes a drink) I was terrified of him. Everyone was terrified of Doug. I've seen grown men pull their own heads off rather than see Doug. Even... Dinsdale was frightened of Doug.
Jones: What did he do?
Palin (eyes go wide for a second in horror): He used sarcasm. He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes... and satire.

You see, Trump, Doug is a MASTER of sarcasm. You barely rank out of kindergarten, you con artist.

It doesn't help Trump's cause that every joke he tries is based on insult and degradation. Neither of those bits work with sarcasm at all.

How bad does Trump have to be at his stand-up routine before the judges hit that damn gong?

You had to know that was coming.
