Ripping the Headlines Today, 10/28/19

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:

Felicity Huffman

Felicity Huffman was released early from prison in college admissions scandal

I’m betting she got time off for buying someone else’s good behavior.

No word if he said “E.T phone 1-800-Lawyer.”

No wonder Trump had it in for the NFL, he hates anything with whistleblowers!

… Doubling the country’s cholesterol rate.

Trump says the Emoluments Clause is phony

In fairness, no way he’s read the Constitution his name ain’t in it.

Be careful out there, Pat, we don’t want you hosting “Wheelchair of Fortune.”

Trump might be at game 3 of the World Series

Instead of throwing out the first pitch, he’ll just throw out another Cabinet Member.
