(Political Satire, Still Legal in USA) (WASHINGTON, D.C.–Jan 26, 2017) Sources inside the White House said that President Trump was congratulating himself for turning both the media and American public’s attention away from his troubling connections with Russia.

“It’s been gigantic,” Trump was said to brag to a staffer. “I Tweet about the size of my inauguration crowds, and let’s face it, that was a pretty outrageous lie, am I right? Then I do a number on Spicer’s suit, then I bring up that old chestnut about fraud at the polls, which is the gift that keeps on giving. Before you know it, everybody forgets about Putin, and the FBI and shady connections. Win. Bigly.”

Trump also was delighted by the calamity caused by his cabinet picks.

“Also beautiful, am I right? DeVos goes up there and can’t put a sentence together, Price refuses to say we won’t cut Medicare. Everybody runs around like a chicken with their head cut off, and I’m sitting easy. I could walk down Fifth Avenue right now with a Russian hooker on each arm, peeing, and I still wouldn’t lose support.”

The source also said that Trump is also heartened by his so-called ”War on the Press.”

“I got NPR News not willing to use the ‘lie’ word for fear of offending me. I got PBS News ignoring the size of the crowds at the Women’s March. They’re running like a bunch of girly men in pink hats. Sad– Not!”

The source said the Trump was so emboldened by the success of his first few days, he was planning to double down.

“Next week, I’m going to tell them that I’m making Crooked Hillary pay for the wall. By the end of next week, they won’t even remember where Russia is. God Bless being President. Is it great, or what? ”
