That is basic humanity. There’s something mentally wrong with a person who has no sense of humor or who cannot laugh at themself….or at least pretend to do so.

Pretty much agree: as far as Presidents go, the ability to not take oneself too seriously is definitely a plus, as far as cementing one’s reputation goes. But it isn’t everything: Jimmy Carter, frex: a decent-enough President (I think his “historical” rep has been hideously skewed by the contemporary need for him to have been demonized by the Republican Opposition: will change over time) but lacking in that self-humor, which, I think, was a major negative for him as President (and will affect “historical” analyses of his Admin.).
