“Deployment” is a military term, “Papa” a whiskey reference. i.e., if had been long enough and he were drunk enough…

We all know that “too ugly to rape” jokes are hilarious to a certain sexist asshole subset of the population —

but in a public forum? Does this person not have a wife, a daughter, or a sister? Does he really claim women as friends? Sorry to get all Texan here, but as they say: “YOU might not be ashamed, but your momma is.”
