Welcome to Buster's Blog

Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

Calling Earth a "Loser," Trump Vows to Make Better Deal With New Planet

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) -- In a dramatic Announcement from the White House Rose Garden on Thursday, Donald J. Trump pronounced the planet Earth a "loser" and vowed to make a better deal with a new planet.

"Earth is a terrible, very bad planet," he told the White House press corps.  "It's maybe the worst planet in the solar system, and it's far from the biggest."

Trump blasted former president Barack Obama for signing deals that committed the United States to remain on the planet Earth indefinitely.  "Obama is almost as big a loser as Earth," Trump said.  "If Obama was a planet, guess what planet he'd be?  That's right -- Earth!"

When asked which planet he would make a new deal with, Trump offered few specifics, saying only, "The solar system has millions of terrific planets, and they're all better than Earth, which is a sick, failing loser."

Trump's remarks drew a strong response from one of America's NATO allies, Germany's Angela Merkel.  "I strongly support Donald Trump leaving the planet Earth," she said.

(Gotta love Andy Borowitz!)
