    Hmm, this thread seems to be heavy on the 1st amendment and light on boobs. Misleading title.

    You used the noun comedy. I used the adjective form in my response. I'm not sure how that makes me wrong.

    Irony is frequently humorous but not necessarily. Although, maybe from a police officer's point of view that example might be funny.

    Wrong may not be the right word. Over filtered.

    I said comedy, implying humorous. You say comedic. I assume you are using comedic to mean humorous. You narrow it to mean "the comedies," as in, film, movies and the like.

    I used comedy to mean humorous, and only humorous.

    Ok, then that filters out that meaning of irony, and narrows your meaning down to contrary events.

    Since violence and protesting are not contrary, I don't see it as irony.

    It cannot be the words definition, because we're taking action. The literary device ones are also out. You are tossing the one that requires humor.

    There aren't a lot of definitions left, and I'm not sure the remaining ones apply. So I agree. Not irony.

    What's the issue if it isn't a violation?

    In general, I agree with what you are saying. The 1st amendment is a restriction on the state. I don't think the Trump admin did anything contrary to that in this case. He has said a lot of people should be fired.

    I don't know about Clay Travis and boobs, but Leah Remini just indirectly called John Travolta a ***** on cable TV.

    There can't be a violation of there isn't first an issue. In the White House case, it satisfies both tests. It isn't a violation, but at least it passes both tests.

    It's an example.

    I too like the 2nd and the 4th.

    At the same time, if Target says I can't carry a gun in their store, they haven't violated my 2nd Amendment rights.

    If, however, the state says I can't carry a gun in any store, regardless of whether the owner of the store wants me to or not, we can determine if that's a violation. And some justices might even agree.

    I used comedic to mean "like a comedy". That would include humorous and also like entertainment.

    He said "boob" not "boobies". You are therefore wrong and we must talk about it for the next 200 posts.

    Then the question still stands. How is violence humorous? And I mean violence. Not depictions of violence.

    Words have specific meaning. I get that people don't understand that, though they should.

    If you use the wrong word, you are talking about the wrong thing.

    Irony is a perfect example. It can't have all the meanings of the definition, because it cannot be both an event and a literary device.

    Obviously less frequent, but they are out there. One could probably find examples on America's Funniest Videos. Heck, people cracked jokes about Aaron Hernandez killing himself. I'm sure a lot of people would laugh if a Nazi headquarters was vandalized.

    Actual violence is not funny in the slightest. The depiction of it can be quite hilarious.

    It is why I don't like things like Jackass but laugh my ass off when watching the Three Stooges.

    The exchange was ironic (according to Clay) because in attempting to argue with Travis, his opponents made a move that he felt actually worked in his favor.
