Bernie Announces

Don’t try to talk to me unless you’re wearing a surgical mask. I wouldn’t hear you then and don’t want to now. I don’t care I lost Florida by forty points and also got hosed in Illinois and Arizona and now trail Joe Biden by three hundred delegates. That’s irrelevant. What do you mean what […]

State of the Trump

Look at those Democratic ladies dressed in white flags of surrender during my State of the Union address. They know I’ve given Americans their best wages in decades and an economy growing almost twice as fast as when I took office. Some say I inherited a good economy. Not as good as the one we’ve […]

Trump on Election Day

I’m up early because I couldn’t sleep last night after Sean Hannity shined my butt at an election rally and now my tweeter’s hotter than ever telling patriots this Republican candidate’s great and that one’s wonderful and those others are important and it’s vital to get out and vote because my name is really the […]

The Booming Economy

(These are highlights from my conversation with an economist who graduated from an elite university, served on public policy staffs during the administrations of Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford, and later consulted international businesses.) George Thomas Clark – Okay, I read your recent newspaper columns about economics and foreign policy, respectively. You emphasize what President […]

Pastors Visit White House

Thank you inner city pastors for being black and brown in my White House so I can tell you I’ve cut taxes, reduced regulations, increased American industry, and promoted manufacturing to create almost four million jobs since I was elected, lowering black and Hispanic unemployment rates to lowest levels in recorded history.

Joe Six Pack Reports

I’m excited looking at an email from Team Trump. They need our participation “because we’re close enough to change everything.” And we have to. “Illegal voting in the United States wreaks havoc with elections. Every election… it seems we rarely get our candidates elected.” Damn right “it’s time we do something about this.” Team Trump […]

What About Predatory Women?

Envision those male politicians, corporate bosses, and college administrators who enjoy flagellating themselves and other men while females of all ages and stations help them lay on the whip. Right now, that’s the self-righteous, politically essential, and cool thing to do. Make believe that most men are beasts and most women aren’t. Pretend the fair […]

Andrew Puzder Laid Off

To hell with it. I’m relieved some Republican senators have sided with moronic fast food workers and forced me to withdraw before I could be confirmed as head of the Department of Labor. They’d have been lucky to have me. I’m a certified business wizard who pulled Hardee’s out of the dumpster and made their […]

Obama’s Letter to Trump

Donald J. Trump is getting ready to have a really great time his first night in the White House and about to hit the sack with the force of an exhausted whale when he notices a paper pinned to the wall above the headboard. He grabs the paper, wondering, what the hell does it say? […]

Most of you still don’t know me but soon will since President-elect Trump asked me to be his Secretary of Labor. He knows I’ll put America back to work. I’m an expert worker and CEO of the restaurant holding corporation that includes Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s. I understand business and money and jobs. Listen to […]

Another tardy, you’re fired, boss told me. Sir, I’ve been both diligent and creative.

Executive Confusion

New executives understand little about business yet often rudely give nonsensical orders to experienced professionals. Pros are quite upset but executives proclaim way of future. They never actually learned any way but no matter since all have special degree authorizing to transform ignorance into arrogance. Expect more problems until system changes. It will change when […]
