Trump's Budget Contains Twenty Million Dollars for Bail

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump’s $4.7-trillion budget raised eyebrows on Monday when government-watchdog groups discovered that it contained twenty million dollars for bail.

The line item for a “bail fund” was buried in the fine print of the published budget, along with a footnote specifying that the money could be used only to bail out Trump and members of his immediate family.

The footnote listed the members of his family who would be eligible to use the funds, including his daughter Ivanka and his sons Donald, Jr., and Eric, but not his son-in-law, Jared Kushner.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joined a chorus of congressional Democrats who cried foul at the notion of American taxpayers posting bail for Trump and his family.

“At the end of the day, this is going to cost way more than twenty mil,” she said.

3. Borowitz is satire!

Still, it seems so believable given what we hear every day.

8. LOL! I was thinking more along the lines of about $200 million. Maybe that's in the next budget.

Or maybe he'll take that from one of the children's after school funds.

Great satire. Had me fooled for a second. That's how unreal reality is right now.
