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:
DONALD TRUMP was sworn in as the 45th President on Friday at 12 noon. For all you kiddies out there. That’s when the big hand was on the 12, and the little hand is on the Bible.
It was a chilly, rainy day in Washington during the inauguration. In response, TRUMP tweeted, “Fake weather. The sky is rigged!”
TRUMP said after being sworn into office he’s going to take the weekend off. Unless, of course, he has to deal with a national emergency or a “Saturday Night Live,” ALEX BALDWIN, sketch. It could go either way.
At the inauguration, it was exciting to see PRESIDENT TRUMP standing at the podium as JUSTICE ROBERTS administered the oath, while HILLARY and BILL were in the audience of the swearing-in ceremony, silently holding their own private swearing-AT ceremony.
TRUMP voters in the inauguration audience were wearing TRUMP’S “Make America Great” sweatshirts for $79. I know it sounds expensive for a sweatshirt, but just imagine how much they would have cost if they were made in America.
Even TRUMP’S staunchest supporters are starting to have doubts. White Nationalists and “America First”-ists are already losing faith in TRUMP. Too bad. And they were ready to go to “heil” and back for him.
A BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN cover band dropped out of performing at the inauguration. It is not a good sign when a cover band thinks of you as a “Cover President.”
Dozens of Democratic members of Congress boycotted TRUMP’S inauguration. Which is shocking because I didn’t know there were still dozens of Democratic members of Congress.
Congress is ready to repeal Obamacare, but not to worry, the new PRESIDENT said he has a replacement that will provide insurance for everybody. It’s called “Move To Canada.”
His first act as PRESIDENT, to reaffirm his involvement in the Middle East, TRUMP telephoned Israel, Egypt, Jordan and the Palestine Authority. And to show he knows how to make a good deal, he called collect.
On Saturday there was a giant “Women’s March” to raise awareness of women’s rights. There were so many women in Washington D.C. protesting TRUMP’S trying to end abortions, the city is now referred to as “Washington D and C.”
Millions of women marched in cities all over the country. If we could harness their anger we could light Romania for a year.
Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey is officially closing down. Apparently the circus doesn’t think it could compete against the clowns moving in during the TRUMP Presidency.
Monday was “MARTIN LUTHER KING DAY” and everybody had a day off. My daughter celebrated in the traditional way, by sleeping in. So she too “could have a dream.”
