Making fun of the headlines today, so you don’t have to

The news doesn’t need to be complicated and confusing; that’s what any new release from Microsoft is for. And, as in the case with anything from Microsoft, to keep the news from worrying our pretty little heads over, remember something new and equally indecipherable will come out soon.

Really all you need to do is follow one simple rule: barely pay attention and jump to conclusions. So, here are some headlines today and my first thoughts:

Headlines Today, Amish

73 arrested after police raid Amish party in Ohio field

Seems they were partying like it was 1699.

Hillary apologizes for calling 1/2 of Trump’s supporters a ‘Basket of Deplorables’

We await an apology from Trump for making the basket in China.

It would be way more likely for him to harass Working Woman Magazine.

Unfortunately, it was to Joe Scarborough and not Alex Trebek.

Look for Trump to propose building a wall around Minnesota and have Al Franken pay for it.

And, maybe, play some Barry White on their iPods.

That’s why each can comes with a straw.

So, in other words, he now thinks King was Putin him on.

How exactly did lightning kill 323 reindeer in Norway?

I’m more interested in who brought the 200 gallons of A 1 sauce.

Melania: Shut up, at least you didn’t have to marry him.

Geraldo Rivera ‘filled with regret” for defending Roger Ailes

Some people find his statement of regret as empty as Al Capone’s vault.

Matt Lauer gets grief for his performance on NBC’s Presidential Forum

The next time they do ‘Where in the World is Matt Lauer’ nobody is going to go look for him.

Gretchen Carlson gets 20 million dollar sexual harassment settlement

So, FOX got what Ailes asked for, she screwed them but good.
