Ten Ways Donald Trump Has Already Made America Great Again

January 21, 2017

1. Shortened the list of things not to do if you want to be President.
2. Made the White House white again.
3. Brought the ignorant and bigoted back to the policy making table.
4. Agreed to remake Green Acres as a White House reality show. Theme song excerpts: “Wash DC is the place for me/Making billions skewing policy/Tanks spreading out so far and wide/Failing Washington Post, you’ve got nowhere to hide.”
“No, New York is vhere I’d radder stay/I’ll die if Barron goes to Georgetown Day/I just adore my Tower milieu/Darlink, I love you, but I vant Jeter, too.”
5. Put Ivanka in and kept Chelsea Clinton and her Jew husband out of the White House. We all know what happens with Clintons and Jews of another gender in the West Wing.
6. Provided a replacement for the Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus.
7. Extended the Obama First Couple tradition of one American and one foreigner.
8. Promoted equality by proving that an Ivy League diploma doesn’t make you better than anyone else.
9. Returned US to the International Leaders Crazy Hair List at number two, behind North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
10. Ended discrimination against the privileged.
