White House Doctor Writes Note Saying Trump Too Sick to Talk to Mueller

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Amid reports that Donald Trump might soon be summoned to appear before Robert Mueller, the White House doctor wrote a note on Wednesday indicating that Trump was too sick to talk to the special counsel.

“Donald Trump is not well,” Dr. Ronny Jackson wrote.

The doctor’s note offered a laundry list of ailments afflicting Trump, including flu-like symptoms, upset stomach, headaches, dizziness, confusion, and what Jackson called a “wartime foot injury that appears to be acting up.”

1. Did It Sound Like, "This Is Ha-Oh-Meh-Eh-Er's Doc-tor; He's Too Sick To Work To-day"?

2. A "war time foot injury"?....What war caused that?


Can Dr. Jackson be any more stupid?

Crikey!

13. It's Andy Borowitz, political humorist at The New Yorker.

He's a satirist. The war time foot injury is making fun of the bone spur deferment.

4. Uhhh....guys...

Trump is too sick to talk to Mueller. Nobody even doubts anymore that he lacks the cognitive ability to control his mouth in an interview.

6. Fake news!

A legitimate note would have been signed, "Donald's Doctor." Or maybe Epstein's Mother.

12. Ordinarily I would agree with you, but the URL includes the word "humor" and...

Andy Borowitz may not be a household name, but he's routinely on the Greatest Page here at DU. I can see why an OP wouldn't bother when linking to his column.

21. Some people, notably repuglicons, just don't get humor.

Unfortunately putting the punch lines in front of the lead-ins might satisfy some of these people but it defeats the purpose of a joke. A joke is usually something that ends in a way that we're not expecting.
