TRUMP SAYS HE DOES NOT KNOW JARED KUSHNER VERY WELL

TAORMINA, Italy (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump on Saturday accused the media of exaggerating his relationship with Jared Kushner, asserting that “I don’t know him very well.”

“He’s someone I would see around the office and who, I guess, was working for me,” Trump told reporters on the last leg of his foreign trip. “Beyond that, I couldn’t tell you much about him.”

Trump acknowledged that he had spoken to Kushner at times during the 2016 campaign. “I’d pass him in the hall and say hello,” he said. “He seemed like an O.K. person. I never got much of a sense of the guy.”

When asked whether Kushner might have had improper contact with Russian spies during the transition, Trump said, “I couldn’t tell you if that’s the kind of thing he’d do. You really should ask someone who knows him.”

That's how bad it's gotten of late.

Well Kushner should know now that Trump will easily throw him under the bus, if need be.

6. Satire alert!

Borowitz, the author of this piece, does satire.

Problem is, even satirical musings on Trump & Co. sound so much like something they would actually do....

I have to double-check to see if a story is from Borowitz or The Onion all the time, anymore.

11. Ah, satire

 

Have to be careful with that. After seeing him wander away on tv looking confused, I wouldn't be shocked if he looses touch with reality that much.

14. Satire about Trump should be marked as "Satire" in the title.

Trump has been saying such crazy things that it is getting extremely difficult to distinguish satire from truth. I'm afraid many DUers are going away thinking that certain things have happened that have not really happened.
