Panicky Trump Orders Dozen New Sharpies Before Releasing Ukraine Phone Transcript

NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—A reportedly panic-stricken Donald J. Trump ordered a dozen new Sharpies before releasing a transcript of his phone conversation with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

Trump was reportedly incensed after he discovered that aides had not replenished his supply of Sharpies after he used his last one diverting the path of Hurricane Dorian.

In New York for the United Nations General Assembly, Vice-President Mike Pence scoured stationery stores in midtown Manhattan to find the precious Sharpies, but came up empty.

While the quest for Sharpies continued, aides professed that the situation was “under control.” “President Trump has actually done some of his best work with crayons,” one aide said.

I will bet you right now there are people around Trump saying frantically, "Mr. President, do not release doctored transcripts! Don't do it, this will come out if you doctor them, it surely will harm you." But Trump can't see past the day's news cycle and he's desperate to change the narrative.

They will release doctored transcripts, the real conversation will come out, and this will be worse for him.
