The ‘birther’ vs. President Obama
Donald Trump, the most notorious of the ‘birthers’, flips his lid.
In an incident that may prove to be one of the most embarrassing events in ‘the Donald’s’ life, Trump was caught losing his wig in a rush of hot exhaust from a jet engine of Air Force One.
He was giving an interview for BNN on an airport runway when the President felt the irresistible tug of mischief overcome him. He happened to notice Mr. Trump step out of his private jet and correctly concluded that the real estate mogul was there to upstage him.
He quickly realized the possibilities and rushed to the cockpit. He instructed the pilot to veer off their runway path and turn the butt of Air Force One in Donald Trumps direction. The exhaust blast did the rest. The high pressure stream of exhaust literally flipped Trump’s lid leaving him standing there on the runway with his bald head gleaming up at the world. He shrieked like a 1st grader and then turned and ran after the toupee just missing several attempts at snagging it.
Several of the grounds crew joined in the fun and grabbed the toupee They then tossed it to one another much like a frizby at the beach. All the while the President’s men were doubled over in laughter with the film crew recording every priceless moment.
The President’s men quickly retrieved the hair piece and handed it over to their Commander-in-Chief who graciously carried it over to a scarlet faced Mr. Donald Trump.
But just as the President reached Mr. Trump he playfully fitted it on his own head causing a flustered Mr. Trump to snatch it off the President’s head and and stuff it into his jacket pocket. He ran up the stairs of his own jet and disappeared into the cockpit never to be seen again on the runway.
Later that afternoon, the Trump people put out a press release saying that the whole incident had been staged and that the real Donald Trump had been in Europe during the time in question.
In an interesting turn of events, a straw poll of Americans showed that 11% of people polled believed that Trump was in Europe which is the identical percentage of people who believe that President Obama was not born in the U.S. and, coincidentally, the same percentage of people who believe that former President Bush ordered the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center.
