Donald Trump yesterday declared, to nobody’s surprise, that he had no tapes of his conversations with James Comey.In a move that left poker players worldwide speechless, Trump called Comey’s bluff, only for Comey to reveal his handful of aces at Senate testimony. It meant yet another tape destined for the White House dumpster.
Jeff Sessions will today capitalize on the build-up to tomorrow’s Senate hearing by promoting his new biopic, “Memento”.”It’s something I’ve been working on with Christopher Nolan for a few years now”, Sessions said. “We decided to borrow from Christopher’s original Memento screenplay as there are so many parallels between my story and Guy Pearce’s struggle to find the truth despite his failed memory.”Sessions added that he’s hoping for a fall release. It was unclear if he was referring to the movie or his impending jail term for perjury.
Melania Trump joined her husband last night for a celebratory dinner, following James Comey’s Senate testimony in which the former FBI director proclaimed, “Lordy, I hope there are tapes.”White House fashion consultant, Sarah Huckabee Sanders gushed, “Melania wanted to show how passionate she is about recycling. She found several boxes in her husband’s Oval Office closet marked ‘Goodwill’ and decided to do something fun with the contents. I’m sure you’ll agree that her designer did an unbelievable job.”This story got a lot of attention. Credit goes to Virginia Fitzgerald for her wonderful creation “Black Widow” which I used as the idea for the story. It is a life size dress sculpture created out of chicken wire and VCR tape.

Reacting to James Comey’s prepared statement, French President Emmanuel Macron said he also recalled a meeting with President Trump where he was asked the exact same thing…”I hope you can let this go””I didn’t move, speak, or change my facial expression in any way during the awkward silence that followed. We simply looked at each other in silence until I finally decided the time had come to loosen my vice-like grip.”
