Dismissing Security Experts, Trump Invites Putin To Pentagon

TrumpWithPutin

 

Emboldened by the Mueller report’s lack of finding evidence of collusion, Trump is suddenly becoming very chummy with Putin.  Against the strong advice and dire warnings from security experts, the intelligence community, and Sec. of State Mike Pompeo; President Trump will be dining at the Pentagon with Putin.  The menu will include several Russian classics, including caviar, Pelmeni (a Russian meat pie), Borscht.  The White House chef expressed concerns due to his lack of expertise in such unusual cuisine.  But Trump replied, “You better get used to it.”

In a display of diplomacy and trust, President Trump will then lead Pres. Putin through some of the most high security areas of the Pentagon, and discuss mutual cooperation to defeat any last remnants of ISIS.  A Russian Orthodox shrine will also be erected in Putin’s honor.

GNN’s Tim Acoster was able to catch Trump on his way to greet Putin’s arrival and asked, “Mr. President, why are you ignoring your security experts and even the Sec. of State?”  To which Trump replied, “I don’t need to follow their advice.  I’m a pretty smart guy.”

Trump Cures Cancer – Democrats Lament Job Loss For Chemotherapy Workers

TrumpAndCarson

As of today, at app. 3:15 PM EDT, President Trump has announced that he has found the cure for cancer!  Sec. of HUDD Ben Carson played a crucial role, however, at the very least.  Given Dr. Carson’s excellent track record in the medical field, having been the first to successfully separate conjoined twins, many believe that it was largely Dr. Carson who is responsible.  This was first suggested by former Sec. of State Hillary Clinton during an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper.  When asked if he was taking too much credit from Dr. Carson, the President responded, “He’s a nice guy, and he’s working really hard.  But crooked Hillary is a loser.  She wouldn’t know anything about curing cancer.  She lost the race even with everyone in the fake news supporting her.”  The President declined further comments.

Trump may cause a recession

Many Congressional Democrats and die hard Keynesian economists warn, however, that this could cause a recession.  Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman remarked, “In addition to the retail jobs that will be lost to the trade war Mr. Trump is starting, many higher paying jobs in chemotherapy will be lost.  Researchers, doctors, nurses, lab techs, and many more.  Mr. Trump really should have consulted with qualified economists before proceeding with his Cancer cure.”

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer also weighed in:

“The President has not considered how this will affect many of the people who voted for him.  Many of those hard working nurses pulling double shifts to make ends meet will find themselves with fewer hours, or even laid off.  I’m sure Congressional Republicans will feel the effects of this in November.”  Schumer added that before implementing this cure for cancer, the FBI should conduct a thorough investigation into the possibility of Kremlin scientists colluding with the Trump administration to find this cure.

Healthcare lobbyist and former DNC Chair Howard Dean, however, has proposed a solution, as follows:

“Trump, or actually Carson’s cure for cancer is still very new, and can’t be guaranteed to work.  We also can’t be sure of side effects.  There should be a 5 year moratorium on this cure until we can be sure be completely sure that we know all of the side effects.  This will also stave off a healthcare worker recession for at least 5 years.  After that, as we can’t be 100% sure that it will cure cancer in every patient, we should mandate that anyone receiving the cure be required to also undergo chemotherapy as a plan B.”

10 out of 10 health insurance CEOs agree with Dean, according to a Gallup poll.

Another Gallup poll focused on the American population at large showed that 46% of Americans support Trump’s cure for cancer, 52% opposed, and 2% unsure.  97% of self-identified Republicans approve, compared to 11% of Democrats, and 51% of Independents.  Trump’s approval rating as President has also increased by 3% following this announcement.
