A Good Deal!!!

I don’t know about you guys, but I could use a little humour at Trump’s expense today.  Andy Borowitz is always good for a few laughs.  This column of his is from 24 January, six days ago, but it’s still funny.

borowitz-andyWASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In a bold initiative aimed at ending the shutdown, congressional Democrats on Thursday agreed to fund a border wall and reopen the government if Donald Trump leaves the country forever.

Calling the deal “a huge win for America,” the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said that Trump would get the wall he wanted plus the opportunity to do something “incredibly patriotic” for his country.

Pelosi brushed aside criticism of the offer’s 5.7-billion-dollar price tag, telling reporters, “When you consider what we are getting in return, nine trillion dollars would be a bargain.”

But, even as Pelosi touted the offer, some details remained unresolved, such as finding a country willing to accept Trump.

Although Russia has a practice of providing country houses to former leaders such as Nikita Khrushchev and Boris Yeltsin, it is unclear whether Trump’s two years of service to the Kremlin qualify him for such accommodations.

The White House offered no official response to the Democrats’ offer, but Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani gave it a full-throated endorsement during an appearance on CNN.

“He should absolutely take this deal,” Giuliani said. “I mean, if he stays in the country, he’s probably going to prison.”

And in case that didn’t quite bring a smile to your face … try this!  I call it “My Dream”

  1. And meanwhile, in a parallel world in an alternate universe, in a future far far away, an old gravestone was uncovered. On it were carved the words:

    Here lies Donald John Trump,
    First Emporer of the Continent of Antarctica
    Born: June 14th, 1946 CE
    Died: Nov. 7th, 2016 CE
    swarmed to death by Emporer Penguins who refused to build a wall around Antarctica.
    “He wanted to be loved so badly, we loved him the baddest we could!

  2. Jill, a gofundme page would easily fund this and pay for his housing elsewhere. As the satire says, he may want to leave as he would otherwise go to prison. Keith


    • PS – A week or so ago, I wrote a post citing the concerns of conservative writer George Will about the President. He is one of many conservative “friends” of the GOP who have left the party and/ or are hypercritical of the President. One of those is Ross Douthat, who wrote the following in a piece this weekend in The New York Times called “A case against impeachment.”

      “…the government shutdown has demonstrated that Trump’s own incompetence suffices to cost him support in the polls and in the Senate – an indication that a larger crumbling of his political firewall might be possible.”

      The piece is worth reading. The ideal way for Trump to go per Douthat is to not be elected. Yet, he notes if things unwind with the Stone arrest and further actions from Mueller, then other actions could and should be taken.


  3. A pretty fair deal fr him as he gets away scot free. I loved the video barring one thing, why did Mrs Kushner get to remain in the car un-arrested and still smiling? She did nicely out of China while suposedly working for the Country.

    • I was puzzled by Ivanka’s escaping arrest, and more so by her laughing. I think the only explanation is that perhaps she was the one who provided the information that led to the arrests of both her father and her husband? Else she was cackling at being overlooked by the FBI. Either way, though, it was a bit creepy.
