Political Humor

Lunch with the Pope

President-elect Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht.

The Pope accepted and during lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff's hat off, right into the water.

It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.

The crew and the secret service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying, "Never mind, boys, I'll get it."

The Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed into the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.

The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope's entourage were speechless.

No one knew what to say, not even the Pope.

But that afternoon, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN reported:

"TRUMP CAN'T SWIM!"

  1. HA! I repeated this story, myself, several times in the past couple of moonths. It's hardly original. In truth it's a very old joke recycled from the days when RICHARD NIXON ran for president the late Nineteen-SICK-sties.

    That would make the story FIFTY YEARS OLD at least!

    No matter! It's a good joke, and just as appropriate today as it was then –– possibly even more so, if that were possible.

    The ENEMEDIA has only grown increasingly fatuous, deceitful, treacherous, untrustworthy and incorrigible with the passage of time.

    And doesn't Ecclesiastes tell us, "There is nothing new under the sun" anyway?

    1. FT,
      There's also an old joke about parachutes and jumping from an airplane. Maybe you know that joke?

  2. Reminds me of a Zizek joke... ill Order

    to relax after the arduous work of preaching and performing miracles, Jesus decided to take a short break on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. During a game of golf with one of his apostles, there was a difficult shot to be performed; Jesus did it badly and the ball ended up in the water, so he did his usual trick: he walked on the water to the place where the ball was, reached down and picked it up.

    When Jesus tried the same shot again, the apostle told him that this is a very difficult one — only someone like Tiger Woods can do it; Jesus replied, "What the hell, I am the son of God, I can do what Tiger Woods can do!" and took another strike.

    The ball again landed in the water, so Jesus again took a walk on the surface of the water to retrieve it. At this point, a group of American tourists walked by and one of them, observing what was going on, turned to the apostle and said: "My god, who is this guy there? Does he think he is Jesus or what?"

    The apostle replies: "No, it's worse, the jerk thinks he is Tiger Woods!"

    1. The image of Jesus playing GOLF was enough to put me in stitches.

      I've always loved the Absurd and Incongruous. Please don't ask me why, because I couldn't tell you.

  3. Talk about the POPE....

    He was visiting D.C. when he got bored of being driven around and asked the limo driver if he could drive...

    two moto cops were behind a big sign waiting for a speeding car on the freeway...sure enough, bthe limo races by....So one of the cops takes off after him and stops the limo....

    He comes back to the other cop after 10 minutes, who says "Give them a ticket?" "No, I didn't.." "WHY NOT? He was speeding! I thought we weren't going to hold back giving tickets even if it was a big shot!"

    The cop says "This guy was so big he had the POPE as a driver!" :-)

  4. Trump would have never jumped in, in the first place. He would have turned the water Orange.
