(Political Satire) (WASHINGTON, Apr 5, 2017) President Trump said in a news conference today that he has changed his mind about President Bashar al-Assad after news reports of the deadly chemical weapons attacks in Syria interrupted his daily hour of television cartoons.
“I was watching The Flintstones, the one where Fred and Barney go bowling, and suddenly these shocking images came over the television,” Trump said. “I mean, who knew that chemical weapons were so terrible? This is a game changer, folks.”
The White House had no comment when The Failing Times asked why, after Assad had used chemical weapons on his own people many times in the past, Trump suddenly changed his opinion after just days before he said that the Syrian President could stay in power.
But an inside source did answer the question, saying:
“The moral of the story is, if you want to get Trump’s attention, interrupt The Flintstones to tell him.”
