Yes, it’s time to steal a few more jokes from my father-in-law (F.I.L.). His blog posts range from political comedy to humorous commentary on pop culture.
For those of you who might be new here, he used to write for Alan King, Milton Berle and Jonathan Winters, just to name a few. And all those Dean Martin Roasts, too: Don Rickles, Red Buttons, Phyllis Diller, Sammy Davis, Jr., etc.
A tiny respite from all the frustrating events of the day:
In order to win the first Presidential debate held last week, the experts said HILLARY CLINTON had to project an image of competence, experience, wisdom, health, and vitality, without coming off as angry, bookish, or overbearing. DONALD TRUMP had to NOT commit murder — on camera.
Before the debate, PRESIDENT OBAMA told HILLARY, “Be yourself.” Then OBAMA told TRUMP, “Please, please, please be yourself.”
HILLARY was so prepared, her new nickname should be, “Preparation H.” It’s a compliment. In the primaries, she proved she could, “Soothe the BERN.”
It didn’t take too long for one of the two candidates to tell a lie. TRUMP opened with, “it’s good to be here.” False! Where were the fact-checkers?
When TRUMP heard that HILLARY invited “Shark Tank’s” MARK CUBAN to attend the debate he was furious and said, “A billionaire reality star has no business being at a Presidential debate.”
Libertarian candidate GARY JOHNSON was giving a television interview and was unable to name a single foreign leader. Wow, this might cost him the election.
But not to worry, JOHNSON could still get a job. He’s perfect to be DONALD TRUMP’S Secretary of State.
The next debate will be what they call the town hall format, which is where real voters get to ask questions and the candidates ignore them and just talk about what they wanted to in the first place.
One of TRUMP’S goals in the next debate will be to win back female voters. Which explains why TRUMP is practicing answering every question with a passage from “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
In a recent speech HILLARY encouraged everyone to vote early. TRUMP opposed, because he believes that voting starts at conception.
DONALD TRUMP has a new scandal to deal with. According to Newsweek, in 1998 he spent $68,000 on a business venture in Cuba which was illegal because of the embargo. TRUMP, of course, denied the allegations. He said there’s no such place as Cuba.
When Newsweek produced the paid bill. TRUMP said, “See, it’s not true. If I owed $68,000 I’d have, as is my usual business practice, stiffed them.”
According to the latest poll, 80 percent of the people polled are sick and tired of hearing about the latest polls.
