When is sarcasm bad – and when does it help?

Sometimes sarcasm only adds fuel to the fire when it comes to politics. But can it be a helpful way to talk about tough topics?

Hannah, an 18-year-old listener who was born and raised in Brooklyn, called in to talk about sarcasm and snowflakes on Thursday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson.”

“My dad busts chops around the house all the time,” Hannah laughed, describing her New York City family. Being tough on each other helped prepare them for the real world. “It gets you used to what’s out there,” she said.

Doc Thompson wanted an analysis on “The Morning Blaze” crew’s sometimes sarcastic approach to news stories, explaining that they always try to be self-deprecating even when they make fun of people.

“Yeah, we’re giving people the business … but we hold ourselves accountable,” he said.

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.
