Headline of the day: Gullible’s Travails


From the London Daily Mail:

Joke’s on them! White House promotes column about ‘Trump’s budget makes perfect sense’… not realizing it’s vicious satire

  • White House newsletter included link to Washington Post column on Friday
  • ‘Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why’
  • But a read beyond that headline reveals the piece is vicious satire 
  • ‘All schoolchildren will be taught by an F-35 wearing a Make America Great Again hat,’ Post opnion writer Alexandra Petri pens in zany extended riff
  • Embarrassed White House removes link to satirical column
  • ‘This is 2017 in a nutshell: You start with what you think is obviously a joke, and then a few days later it is being sent out from the White House,’ writes Petri
