The greatest gift of Donald Trump’s presidency hasn’t been to blue-collar voters, the South, and the “economically” insecure. No, it’s been his gift to comedians across America (and the world). Sure, Canada’s Rob Ford was a good source of comedy for a while, but then he went and died, making it a little awkward to bust out the crack pipe jokes.
But while Trump may not give America any of his tax money, he sure gives the country his spectacular performance as Entertainer-In-Chief. Whether he’s assuring the haters and the losers that he’s got the world’s highest IQ or hemorrhaging senior staff members like a hemophiliac with a chest wound, we’re all enraptured.
Is it depressing that the leader of America has to seriously think before condemning racist militias? Absolutely! Is it terrifying that Trump’s views have emboldened literal fascists to march proudly on America’s streets? For sure!
But it’s still worthwhile to have a laugh about it, every once and a while. Sometimes, you need to laugh, or you’ll cry.
1. “Bush, Obama and Trump go to a job interview with God…
God asks Bush: “What do you believe in?” Bush answers: “I believe in the free market, and the strong American nation!” “Very well”, says God. “Come sit to my right.”
Next, God asks Obama: “What do you believe in?” Obama answers: “I believe in the power of democracy, and equal rights for all.” “Good”, says God. “You shall sit to my left.”
Finally, God asks Trump: “What do you believe in?”
Trump answers: “I believe you’re sitting in my chair.” (RifRifRif)
