(POLITICAL SATIRE) (LONDON, May 23, 2017) Ebenezer Scrooge, known for famously saying that the poor should die and decrease the surplus population, said today from his home in London, that President Donald Trump’s budget goes too far–even for him.

“Look, it’s just not right to give your rich buddies tax cuts whilst taking bread out of the mouths of kids. How many damn Mercedes do you need?”

Scrooge said that he understood the urge to go too far.

“Hey–I’ve been there, ” Scrooge said. “I was stingy and mean, but these guys take the pudding. I hope Mr. Trump is visited by my good friend Marley. That might change his mind, quick as you can say, ‘Bob’s your uncle!’ Now excuse me, I have to go give away more of my money.”
