Hi!!

Dans le contexte suivant:
One is attempted to imagine the guffaws of politicians in the Deep South at this development, but such a semi-comic image seems profoundly inappropriate, considering the tragic consequences for millions of people.

(livre sur la Guerre civile et racisme aux USA)

pourrait-on traduire "semi-comic" par "risible"??

Merci pour votre aide :)

    Thank you for your suggestions. Can I ask you if semi-comic is more like "could be comic but isn't" or "a bit comic" or is there irony??
