Making fun of the Presidents?

Is it okay to have a joke at their expense? If not, what are your thoughts about Saturday Night Live? Some jokes are tacky and some are over the top. But what makes one joke okay and the other not so okay?

  • I think a lot of people here just need to relax a little and realize sometimes you just want to have fun!

  • Offensive jokes are not okay. Like making fun of Obama's race. Not funny. Jokes about dumb things he may have said. Funny.

  • Every president has made fun of!! GW was made fun of everyday. And they where very funny jokes.
    We need to laugh and it is okay with me.

    I think Religion is off limits.

  • If the joke is flat out mean, jokes about a presidents race wouldn't be ok, any race. Other then that, I think its ok to make jokes about president.

  • I think making fun of unchangables( ie. race, disabilities, religion) is not cool. But ideas, speech mistakes, and dumb comments are totally fine

  • i think freedom of speech rules. If you don't like the humor change the channel. Since I now only get NBC, we don't watch tv on saturday nights

  • I think we should just lay off the president. He has a very hard job and people make mistakes sometimes. Partof me though feels like Obama is able to laugh at himself so lol.

  • The best thing about Saturday Night Live is that they make jokes about ALL parties,all politicians,all religions, all ...everything. They don't zero in on just one group or one President. They are making fun of Obama too. Humor is good for us all. George Bush Sr was a good sport and loved the way Dana Carvey mimicked him . Sarah Palin appeared on SNL with Tina Fey and had a ball.Obama laughs at himself. I like people who can laugh at themselves.
