Political Humor at the Expense of You Know Who!

For your sake, if you are a big fan of our President don’t read any further and save yourself the anguish.  Instead, either read my previous Missive or the next one.  But there is too much humor out there not to share it during these crazy times. This Missive will take you longer than usual for though the writing is slim, some of these links are a bit longer than usual.  Also, remember that there may be adds before the actual humorous event is played which can be deleted after about 5 seconds.

Can you imagine what would happen if the president would come over to visit Ralph Cramden and the Honeymooners. This is a pretty good possibility.

Do you remember what the original song called “Bye, Bye Miss American Pie” was about? 
Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson (known as the Big Bopper) and Ritchie Valens, who all died in a plane crash in 1959.   It was memorialized in the song by Don Mclean and what he called “the day the music died”.  Here is an updated version regarding the day democracy died sung by our founders:

People have been so happy with Governor Cuomo of New York that they are proposing him as a candidate for president, which he has rejected.  Here is what would happen if he would sing directly to Trump.

Remember the old African folk song that Peter Seeger made famous, Wimoweh: The Lion Sleeps Tonight?  Here is a more up to date version: The Liar Tweets Tonight.

Here is a slightly different take on the Battle Hymn of the Republic which we may need more than ever. 

I am going to end with a bit that is longer than all the others, which has lost some of its humor but just as sharp as it was at Barack Obama’s final White House Correspondence dinner.  It is over 30 minutes long but I think you will enjoy it if only for nostalgic reasons, remembering when we never even dreamed there would be a time like this when we’d be without leadership:
