Can the clueless and humorless Left take any joke?

This week they stepped in it twice.

Check out this tweet from Trump legal adviser Jenna Ellis:

The President re-tweeted the jab at the ridiculous impeachment process and that occasioned a response from the so-called “fact-checkers” at Snopes.

An email from Snopes Dan Evon to the White House said:

“President Trump recently retweeted a post from @JennaEllisEsq containing a fake quote from an entertainment article. Was President Trump aware that this quote was fake when he sent it? If so, why wasn’t it accompanied by a message labeling the quote as fiction?”

Babylon Bee CEO Seth Dillon, the publisher of the satirical piece had this to say about the humorlessness of the fake news media:

“I’m not surprised by this at all. They don’t like conservatives, so they’re intent on painting us as a fake news outlet, rather than the well-known satire publication that we are. This time, they’re concerned we might have duped the president, or that the president might be duping others because he didn’t attach a disclaimer to our piece. It’s just one more example of their bristling at humor they don’t like.”

The most outrageous reaction to the Trump meme game came with (ratings challenged) CNN’s Don Lemon coming completely unglued about this innocuous tweet by a Trump-supporting account:
