Oyez! Oyez!

News Headline:
“Trump’s short list for Supreme Court.”
Here’s what to do.
Show him a grocery list.
He won’t know the difference.
Then we can end up with a head of lettuce on the Supreme Court.
And the country will be better off.

News Headline: “Trump says travel ban ruling ‘tremendous.’ ”
The original meaning of “tremendous” is “awful, dreadful, terrible,” from the Latin tremendus: “fearful, terrible.”

Accidents happen.

Day 522, America held hostage

News Headline:
“First layoffs from Trump’s tariff’s are here.”
News Headline:Trump’s tariffs are forcing Harley-Davidson to move jobs overseas.”
Do you think Donald Trump could take a moment and share more of his insights into the art of making deals?
Or maybe he’s too modest.
