Is laughter now a crime?

Laughter, which is generally regarded as healthy and healing, may soon be declared a misdemeanor.

During a hearing, Jeff Sessions was described as having a documented history of “treating all Americans equally under the law,” When Code Pink activist Desiree Fairooz heard
this, she expressed some mirth.

A government motion against her states that Fairooz let out not one, but “two bouts of laughter.”  Each bout carries a possible “six months in jail and/or a $1,000 fine.”

Although Sessions had been “denied a federal judgeship” in 1986 due to his racist remarks, it is Fairooz who is being accused of disrupting justice.
