Senate candidate J.D. Vance defends caustic jokes because ‘our country’s kind of a joke’

By Grayson Quay

Republican Senate candidate J.D. Vance argued in a recent interview with Spectrum News that “our country’s kind of a joke. And we should be able to tell jokes about it,” the Ohio-based news network reported.

According to Mediaite, Vance made the statement when journalist Taylor Popielarz questioned Vance about a joke he made after the Alec Baldwin film set shooting.

“Dear @jack let Trump back on. We need Alec Baldwin tweets,” Vance wrote on Twitter in October, tagging then-Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Former President Donald Trump frequently criticized Baldwin’s portrayal of him on Saturday Night Live.
