(Political Satire)(NEW YORK) Hillary Clinton’s election team invited President-elect Donald Trump to participate in the election recount effort started by Jill Stein, but Mr. Trump declined, concerned about how high the counting would go.
“He’s a businessman,” spokesperson Kellyanne Convoy said from Trump Headquarters in New York City. “He doesn’t have time to bother counting. He’s too busy making America great again.”
But an unidentified source inside the Trump camp said the real reason for Trump’s refusal is he can’t count. “Frankly, I haven’t seen the man count past five or six for many, many, years.”
In fact, The Failing Times was told by one of Mr. Trump’s doormen that he had changed the elevator number of his penthouse apartment to “4”, because Mr. Trump found it difficult to count to 58. “He was always losing his place at about 14, and getting off on the wrong floor,” the doorman said.
According to a Clinton spokesperson, the election recount will go on without Trump’s help. “Mrs. Clinton was always very good in math. Trust me, she can handle the whole thing without any help.”
