CNN Headline News throws out worst Trayvon Martin joke yet

By / 07.15.13

Frank Taaffe has been an outspoken proponent of George Zimmerman’s innocence in the now-decided Trayvon Martin trial. Regardless of your opinion there, this joke he threw out on CNN Headline News…not good.

The Skittles and Arizona Iced Tea joke is pretty tasteless, particularly with the wound of the acquittal so fresh. But I’m more bothered by his extremely drawn out delivery of the joke. Nothing says “home run comedy” quite like drawing out your setup for a minute before hitting the punchline. “I like the joke but I really wish there were more awkward pauses and filler leading up to the ‘funny’ part,” says everyone.
