Merkel Successor Slammed For Third Gender ‘Tranny Joke’

The Carnival season is upon us. Europeans, and certainly Germans, feast during this week the last days of meat availability before the beginning of lent. It is a tradition ever since the Middle Ages.

In Germany aspiring politicians who want to be seen and heard tend to show up during the festivities. And thus, Ms Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, the new Chairwoman of Ms Angela Merkel’s CDU and the politician she would like to become her successor, gave a speech to the carnival goers in the town of Stockach.

Attempting to make a joke (never a good idea for Germans who famously lack humor), she referred to the decision of the capital Berlin to install toilets for the ‘third gender’ (trans persons) as ‘latrines for men who don’t know yet whether to stand or sit when they pee.’

The opposition of Liberals and Greens immediately claimed that the LGBTQ minority in Germany should not be mocked in this manner and demanded an apology.

Ms Merkel’s party responded that during Carnival everyone can be mocked with such a joke.
