(Political Satire) NEW YORK– Saying that even Presidents are entitled to leisure time, a source close to President-elect Trump said categorically today that he will be using his.
“Mr. Trump fully intends to use his spare time to run the country as President of the United States. There’s absolutely nothing at all wrong with this. President Obama played lots and lots of golf in his spare time, so we don’t see any reason why Mr. Trump shouldn’t be allowed to use his vacation days to be President.”
When The Failing Times asked whether or not the Presidency itself wasn’t Mr. Trump’s full time job, the source laughed. “Don’t be ridiculous. Mr. Trump’s full time job is his hotel business. And producing Celebrity Apprentice. And Tweeting.”
When asked to comment, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said, “I think it’s an outstanding thing that President Trump is willing to use his spare time–his relaxation time from the stresses of his business–to be President. I think that’s the kind of leadership the American people expect.”
When President Obama was told of Mr. Trump’s plan, a White House source said the President “choked on a carrot and Mrs. Obama had to do the Heimlich.”
