Somebody oughta give the op-ed guys over at the Boston Globe a trophy for trolling after they posted future front page news from a 2017 presidency of Donald Trump. It is funny (…and maybe not). There are headlines of the type you’d expect, highlighting Donald’s Hulk-smash immigration policy: DEPORTATIONS TO BEGIN…Curfews extended in multiple cities. There’s a no-brainer for the business types: Markets sink as trade war looms. Seems likely to me seeing as how Brobdingnagian Bluster spends so much of his time in bankruptcy proceedings.
But the real beauty of Fuck You Trump is in the details. Like these:
NASA engineers halted the launch of an unmanned probe amid fears that its new gold leaf trim would interfere with radio communications
A guffaw for environmentalists:
Heavy spring snow closed Trump National Park for the first time since it dropped its loser name, Yellowstone in January.
And your boring old funny.
Japanese Emperor Akihito formally censured Ambassador Kid Rock for a speech calling on US allies to “Let the [expletive] business guy run the [expletive] country like a [expletive] business.”
It’s all quite comical until you remember we’re for-reals talking about the GOP frontrunner. Then it becomes a tad confusing. Hullo is that Oslo on the phone?
Trump on Nobel prize short list
IT’S NOT MIDDLE East peace, at least not yet. But Nobel watchers were abuzz with speculation that President Trump might be on the short list for the coveted 2017 peace prize when awards are announced in October. His feat? Healing a 1,385 year old schism between Sunni and Shi’ite Muslims, which has fueled bloody conflicts across the globe for centuries.
How much do a billion Muslims hate America’s president? They’ve started their own Hands Across The Levant. There’s your silver lining.
ADD: Dumbest Man On The Internet ftw. After seeing the Globe’s faux front page Jim Hoft gets all rage-y at newspapers, everywhere. He draws a conclusion:
Media is dead.
And how do I know this? Where did I read it? I have no idea.
