We know that memes are fun to share and have a chuckle about but maybe if they are about a woman who claims to have been sexually assaulted by a Supreme Court Judge nominee you should steer clear, especially if you are a politician.

Steve King is a Republican in the United States House of Representatives from Iowa and has held his seat in Congress since 2003.

Last week, he thought it would be a wise idea to share a series of memes on his Facebook page which 'joked' that Brett Kavanaugh's accuser Christine Blasey Ford was a conspiracy by the Democrats to sabotage Donald Trump's nominee.

The memes see a picture of Ford doctored in order to look like Hillary Clinton, a woman labelled as 'Ford' falling out of a car labelled 'Democrats' and another which labels Clinton as another Kavanaugh victim.

King, or whoever runs his page has also shared memes and cartoons aimed at people who supported Ford during her testimony.

Huffington Post has contacted the person who is in charge of Steve King's page asking whether they thought sharing meme's of this nature was appropriate, given the seriousness of the allegations.

Their response was:

The humour of that meme is pointed at the absurdity of the Left, nothing more.

Our page content is definitely not for people who struggle to have a sense of humour or irony.

That being said, we’re definitely not going to litigate every meme with you.
