It would seem that two recent events have galvanized comedians like nothing in recent memory, first the ridiculous farce that was the first presidential debate (check out our Top Jokes From #DebateNight2020) – and now, #TrumpHasCovid.  Perhaps it’s that comedians have, for the most part, lost their ability to perform, to tour, and are pent up from being stuck inside for months and just needed to lash out at something.  Perhaps, like all of us, they’ve been sitting there inundated with partisan bullshit on the news and media, day in and day out, and they finally snapped.  Either way, as the kids like to say, WE ARE HERE FOR IT!  The jokes have been pouring in fast and furious on Twitter and Facebook for days on end.  It’s very hard to keep up.  But here’s a sampling of some of the best jokes we’ve seen since Trump tweeted he has The Rona.  As well as some up front, disclaimer thoughts for those of you think it’s “not funny” or “not something to joke about.”

And the jokes came in, and they just kept coming and coming and coming…

How would a guy who lives in a gold tower named after himself even know if he lost his sense of taste?

It wasn’t just professional comedians who were having a field day though.  Twitter in general couldn’t stop having fun with the news

The Tweeter of the night might have to go to @TitusNation himself though, who was also celebrating his birthday and… not feeling too reserved with his thoughts.

But, for our money, the funniest joke of the night went to Canada’s own Sophie Buddle for this gem

And we don’t know who made it, but this is the best meme to come out of #TrumpHasCovid

For those who are offended by any of these jokes… perhaps you need to go back to the top of the article and read it again, starting with all the reasons you’re wrong.  Thanks to all comedians of all stripes, for doing your jobs so well, and lighting up social media this week with hilarious jokes that highlight the ridiculous times we are living through.  The decade of the 2020s look to be a very difficult and trying time for the world, we’re going to need great comedy to get through it.
