Here’s a variation of a joke I heard recently that is circulating among conservatives. The pope and Trump were out on a ship and suddenly a gust of wind causes the pontiff’s hat to fly several feet away from the boat on surface of the water. Trump gets out of the boat and walks on water to retrieve the miter. On a nearby boat are members of the media.
- The next day the headline read in the New York Times declares, “Trump Can’t Swim.”
- The Washington Post headline read, “Trump Guilty of Water Pollution.”
- The LA Times headline declares, “Trump Shows Off in Front of Pope.”
- USA Today notes: “Trump Tries to Upstage Jesus.”
