Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg dropped out of the race today after claiming he could speak Norwegian, but then failing to correctly pronounce Menneskerettighetsorganisasjonene; a word that means ‘human rights organizations.’ An embarrassed Buttigieg immediately apologized for his error and ended his campaign in disgrace. Meanwhile, in a tweet, president Trump mocked Buttigieg, stating “Little Mayor Pete just revealed himself as a lier and offended all of Skandiñavia. Pathetic. Good riddants.” Advertisements
It’s no secret that the left and right are clashing harder than ever, so much so that large swaths of MAGA conservatives have become closeted out of fear for their personal safety. In fact, in the past month a 15-year old MAGA-hat-wearing boy was slapped by a grown man and, in another incident, a man ran over chairs and tables at a Republican voter registration booth with his car. The two assaults truly depict how hard it is to come out as MAGA in the US today. With experts estimating that at least 37% of the population is MAGA to some degree, countless right wing individuals are having to deal with discrimination for the first time in their lives. “Nobody can imagine what it’s like for us,” an anonymous MAGA man stated. “For someone to tell me that my love for the president is wrong. To shame me for who I am. Well that’s not the America I grew up in! That’s not how you treat your fellow man.” Meanwhile, some political experts are suggesting a Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell approach in which people who identify as MAGA can support the president, but must do so quietly.
President Trump served as the Grand Marshall at this year’s Daytona 500 yesterday. The race marked the 19th anniversary of Dale Earnhardt’s fatal crash at the same event and president Trump had harsh words for the deceased race car driver. “You know, they say he was one of the greatest. They even called him ‘The Intimidator’ folks! You can’t make this up,” Trump stated. “All you do is left turn, left turn, left turn, and maybe there’s a right in there. I don’t know. I don’t know. But it’s simple turns and Dale just drives into a wall. I prefer drivers who don’t crash.”
Senate Republicans celebrated their success in acquitting president Trump today, admitting their complete incompetence was a ruse that all but assures Republican Senators will never be called for jury duty. “We had our eyes on the prize the whole time and it really paid off,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell s grinned. “We’ve now clearly demonstrated an inability to be fair or impartial; meaning we’ll never receive a jury summons or have to pretend to care about the rule of law again.”
Countless Americans are up-in-arms after Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi took her copy of president Trump’s State of the Union speech and tore it into pieces. Pelosi says that compared to what the president has said and done that she is more than comfortable standing by her actions. “I did it and I’d do it again,” Pelosi grinned. “I moved on that speech like a bitch, grabbed it right by the title, and tore it apart – because when you’re Speaker they let you do it!”
President Trump announced today that he will be reinstating “Don’t ask, don’t tell” (DADT), which was the official United States policy on military service by gays, bisexuals, and lesbians up until 2011. President Trump says the law will bar openly gay people like Pete Buttigieg from being Commander in Chief of the US military. “It doesn’t matter what role you are in the military,” Trump stated. “private, corporal, top, bottom, sergeant, twink, or bear; if you’re out, you’re out! That means you Mayor Pete!”
Republican Senators formed an orderly line today on the Senate floor in order to eat out president Trump’s asshole. The hour long tongue bath began right after the elected officials cast their votes to acquit the president of high crimes and misdemeanors; leaving constitutional scholars uncertain which was worse: the destruction of our democracy, or Trump’s intermittent farts and the inevitable resulting spread of pink eye.
