with David Blaska

President Trump will visit you soon

(page 2 of 2)

Back home, police sirens rend the night air. Eleven million Mexican immigrants, most of them illegal and not all of them Mexican, wail as they are led to waiting cattle cars. Tough times require tough measures, press secretary Sarah Palin explains. The Klan announces new chapters in 12 major cities. The dollar is pegged to the yuan. Embargoed iPhones are the new black market currency.

The few pockets of resistance are being silenced. The IRS audits Paul Gigot and Daniel Henninger at the Wall Street Journal. Publication of Bill Buckley’s old magazine, The National Review, is suspended after the IRS revokes its tax-free status. Mitt Romney says he will appeal the gag order imposed under new libel laws making it easier for public officials to sue critics. The Ricketts family sells the Cubs to Eric and Donald Junior in a surprise deal. Terms were not disclosed.

Megyn Kelly lands on her feet with a new show on the QVC shopping channel. She announces a new line of glossy lipstick, Trump Blue.

Speculation on Marco Rubio’s whereabouts begins to wane after the FBI announces no new leads.

“The truth is that men are tired of liberty,” the American Il Duce exults in his first State of the Union address. The few dissenters are hustled out of the chambers.

There might be some humor buried in there, but the situation is too sad to encourage many to look for it.

Dave should be proud. It was the Blaskas, Rushs, Bellings or the country that wrote the script.

Sounds like a really bad trip. Do you need someone to talk you down? You need to find a better dealer next time.

To everyone that was scared of "Citizens United".
Please note the small amount of campaign money spent by Trump and the huge amounts spent by Bush and Clinton.
Have a little faith in your fellow citizens.
Maybe it takes more than consultants and advertising.
