Will re-election mean president totally in charge?

Good news for Trump Country residents, your man’s a shoo-in for 2020. According to Trump, a poll he recently did shows him ahead by 97.6%. He said the poll included 536 million U.S. citizens and, according to Sean Hannity at Fox News, this is the largest pre-election lead in the last 7,500 years. Lindsay Graham thinks it may go back as far as the dinosaur era and Rudy Guiliani said he can’t remember much beyond 1900 B.C.

Overwhelmed with this new development, the Democrats are throwing in the towel after being promised jobs as acting Republicans. This move has prompted a name change from Trump White House to Trump Studios due to most -- if not all -- employees and politicians being placed in acting positions.

Not too sure what these changes might do to our Pledge of Allegiance. Good chance it could end up as “One Nation Run Entirely by the President” and that will definitely affect our “with liberty and justice for all”.
