THE LIGHTER SIDE
God bless America, and how’s everybody?
President Trump defended Donald Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer in a lengthy interview with Reverend Pat Robertson on the CBN Wednesday. It was great theater. President Trump called his son open, transparent and innocent, then thought about it and demanded a paternity test.
Capitol Hill was a beehive of Senate negotiation over private coverage and Medicaid coverage Friday as the repeal and replace bill neared a vote. Everybody’s all in. It’s rumored that President Trump has offered to adopt Rand Paul and put him in the will in exchange for his vote on health care.
Senate Republicans continued negotiations Thursday over a health care bill they’ve had seven years to write, but haven’t taken the time to do it. The bickering resulted in a TV movie. Animal Planet just announced its plans to shoot a remake of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington” with an all-baboon cast.
Bill Clinton and George W. Bush addressed the President’s Leadership Council at the George W. Bush Library on Thursday. For an entire hour, neither president tweeted anything outrageous, ripped the media or said anything crazy. It was a throwback to a simpler time when a president had to have an intern under the desk or invade the wrong country to get his name in the newspaper.
