Folks Were Not Pleased with 'The Daily Show' Tweet on the SCOTUS’ Abortion Ruling

It’s not that their intentions weren’t in the right place, but as is sometimes the case when it comes to The Daily Show, their attempts at humor are misguided and tone deaf. Whoever operates their Twitter account might consider running their tweets past a few people to test their reactions. Or maybe, like, one woman.

Anyway, here’s what The Daily Show account tweeted after the Supreme Court decision came down overturning overly restrictive laws on Texas abortion clinics.

Ha ha ha, right? Go get set someone pregnant because abortions are accessible and fun, yee-haw!

Take it away, Anna Kendrick:

I think this guy hits the right tone: Disappointed, but not completely outraged.

Meghan McCain’s reaction is less magnanimous.

O’Douls? Oof.

I mean, yeah: The math doesn’t really work out on that joke.

Probably a good idea, in either respect.

Awwww.

Harsh, bro. Harsh.

I kind of appreciate this one.

Trevor probably didn’t even write this tweet, but …

Before you go that far, I might remind you of this quote from Craig Kilborn, about the co-creator of The Daily Show and the then head writer:

“To be honest, Lizz does find me very attractive. If I wanted her to blow me, she would.”

If KIlborn had tweeted that in 2016, the number of angry GIFs on Twitter would have melted the servers.
