Dark Humor: GOP Congressman Hands Out ‘Indict This’ Ham Sandwiches To Mark Trump Indictment | The Daily Wire

Sol Wachtler, a former chief judge of New York state, was once quoted as saying that district attorneys could get a grand jury to “indict a ham sandwich,” due to their untoward influence over the jury’s decision-making process.

So, in light of the Manhattan grand jury that indicted former President Donald J. Trump on Thursday, one GOP congressman decided to hand out “Indict this!” ham sandwiches at the U.S. Capitol on Friday.

On Thursday, Congressman Barry Moore (R-AL), tweeted, “Welcome to the club, @realDonaldTrump. In honor of the fact that the Manhattan DA could indict a ham sandwich next, I will be handing them out tomorrow in Longworth 1504 at noon. All are welcome!”

It wasn’t all a joke. Moore really did have ham sandwiches waiting for anybody who wanted one.

“The sandwiches are ready!” he tweeted alongside a photo of his sandwiches. “Hope to see you soon in Longworth 1504.”

The congressman also told Fox News that he believes Trump needs the support of Republicans for the sake of the country.


“We must stand against the weaponization of our judicial system!” he tweeted.

It’s unclear who went to Moore’s sandwich shindig, but suffice it to say, President Joe Biden wasn’t in attendance.

For one thing, he claims to be Roman Catholic, which would mean he shouldn’t be eating meat on Fridays during Lent. Secondly, he told reporters multiple times that he had “no comment” about the matter.

Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, for his part, has accused House Republicans of “political interference” for their criticism and investigation into his office. Moore is lucky that Bragg didn’t show up in person; he might have eaten a Trumpian amount of ham sandwiches.

Moore must be of Irish descent because this is some pretty dark humor if you think about it. The Irish would call it “gallows humor,” as they developed quite a sense of comedy amidst hundreds of years of oppression. Making fun of the situation with witty humor was the only way they could survive in hopeless circumstances.

Let’s hope that Bragg hasn’t ushered in a hopeless America where “equal justice under the law” really goes to die.
