Political Satire Thread
« on: February 08, 2017, 02:45:12 pm »
I think we should have a thread for random political satire articles and cartoons that we find amusing. I got a laugh out of this one from The Beaverton today: "NDP wonders why they never get to vacation with billionaires."

Quote
"We’re a federal party too. Don’t we deserve private helicopter rides or yacht trips through the French mediterranean?”

No one ever wants to dance with the NDP.

Watching Melissa McCarthy's performance as Sean Spicer on SNL last weekend made me laugh so hard I almost wet myself.

Meanie. That could cost him his job, you know. Trump doesn't like it that he was played by a fat chick. It makes him look weak.
Perhaps with that in mind, Rosie O'Donnell has said she's available upon request to play Steve Bannon...

Grizzly Bear attacks a school of salmon; parents demand guns and Trump takes action.

Quote
Then, late last night, in a move that stunned conservationists everywhere and created a backlash amongst many of his piers, the president inexplicably called for an immediate ban on Scottish, Norwegian, and Mexican salmon, saying, “It’s the smoked salmon from outside our borders that are the biggest drag. They’re the gillty ones. As much as we like to say, ‘caviar emptor,’ these foreign fish are corrupting our nation’s streams and rivers and luring the grizzlies to attack because they smelt so good. We must protect America’s fish from these evil outsiders, put lox on all our borders, and make America bait again. Carp Diem!”   

Steve Bannon, the president’s top advisor and known whitefish supremacist, agreed. “We need to keep the foreign salmon out. The last thing we need in this country are more jiggers,” he boldly stated.

I'm not the only one who considers the security issues of these total face covering outfits.

Perhaps this is social satire but still political...
