This is called schadenfreude.
People in the upper echelons of government are notoriously unpopular, so it's no wonder that some people raised a chuckle at the news that the POTUS
had an elbow smacking him in the face which resulted in a busted lip.
People are so PC and easily offended. He suffered a minor
scrape, that is all.
It would only be in bad taste if he was seriously hurt, which he is not.
It's like ''Dubya'' choking on a pretzel; mildly amusing.
Having said that, I don't find this incident particularly amusing, but I can understand why other people might do so.
