It has always been my understanding that "dumb", in this context, means unable to speak. If this is correct, it is somewhat natural to include the term with the mention of deaf and blind.

Or many autistic people who use a AAC/sign language probably disagree

Not one to be the pc police, maybe I missed the joke, but the original poster was making a joke and I think everyone got it, maybe you are too but saying some one is dumb because they can't speak is odd. ��*♂️
