The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Virginia's governorship looks up for grabs after a cascade of scandals by the state leaders last week. In days, the outrages went from infanticide, to black face, to sexual assault, and then back to black face. Virginia has so embarrassed itself West Virginia just changed its name to East Kentucky.

• Virginia's governor refused to resign Thursday while the Lt. Governor and Attorney General were wounded by scandal as well. The GOP Speaker is set to take over, but it was learned he once watched Blazing Saddles and laughed out loud repeatedly. He's apologized, but it may not be enough.

• ABC and NBC faced blackface scandals of their own Thursday after photographs appeared of Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon and Joy Behar made up as black people. It's a bad day for the West Virginia Film Commission. Hollywood won't make any movies about coal miners for a long, long time.

• Delta Airlines and Coca-Cola apologized for napkins which encouraged passengers to get the phone numbers of other passengers they might have a crush on. Coca-Cola apologized for the pick-up suggestion printed on the napkins. Delta apologized for charging five dollars per napkin.

• Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez filed a Green New Deal bill Friday that imposes a huge tax rate, ends air travel, kills all cattle, ends coal and gas power and renovates every building in the U.S. It could be the silliest bill ever filed. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez walks into a bar, and lowers it.

• Senator Markey of Massachusetts and Ocasio-Cortez wrote the Green New Deal that is intended to save the planet, which progressives believe is threatened by carbon emissions. Everyone on both sides of this issue can agree on one thing. Global warming is the number-one cause of documentaries.

• Democratic Senator Amy Klochubar of Minnesota hinted that she would announce her plans to run for president. It's best to announce early for the media attention. A national survey taken last month reveals that eighty percent of all Democrats are planning to run for president.

• Elizabeth Warren apologized again after her she wrote on her Texas Bar application in 1986 she was an American Indian. Later on, Harvard Law School advertised Warren as its first woman of color on the faculty. Look, if you want to get technical, the Saxons WERE a tribe once.

• Senator Elizabeth Warren was contrite Wednesday after she was caught on her old Texas Bar application asserting she's an American Indian. The senator spent all day apologizing and admitting she belonged to no tribe. Warren was really red-faced about it so she'll never be governor of Virginia.

• The Detroit Free Press gave a rave review to a new biography of Betty Ford by Lisa McCubbin which details her fascinating life from high-fashion model to First Lady to a pioneer in alcohol recovery. She died a few years ago but not before Americans showed we could stop after one Clinton.

• Washington pundits were perplexed over the Virginia blackface photo revelations scandal and wondered just how far this reign of terror into older politicians' past would go. No one knows where it's going to end. Way back when Bernie Sanders was a little boy growing up in Brooklyn and his buddies played Cowboys and Indians, Bernie always insisted on being the Chinese railroad worker.

• Governor Ralph Northam's racist yearbook page unleashed a PC reign of terror against white privilege. Critics are attacking Mary Poppins, saying when she sings while covered with chimney soot she's in blackface. To be fair the song was Just a Spoonful of Sugar Helps the Hennessey's Go Down.

• President Trump announced he'll hold talks with Kim Jung Un in Vietnam this month. It will be a nice escape from CNN, the Russia probe and Late Night host badgering. I don't want to say the script has flipped during my lifetime, but Trump is going to Vietnam to avoid combat duty in America.

• The Denver Post reported that Colorado drug advocates have succeeded in getting a measure on Denver's municipal ballot that would decriminalize magic mushrooms. In Denver, the cannabis community sponsored a march for legalized mushrooms. The turnout was high.

• Apple started offering iPhone owners four hundred dollar trade-ins for a new iPhone XS. The transitory world of high-tech companies keeps many investors in commodities stocks. You'll know Apple's REALLY more valuable than Exxon when we start invading countries for their Internet cafes.

• President Trump stood at the podium during his State of The Union speech facing all the Democratic Congresswomen who sat together in white uniforms looking like a choir of angels. It provided us a historic moment. It is the first time Democrats gathered in one place dressed in white that didn't involve burning a cross.

• President Trump's State of the Union performance was ripped by CNN despite 76 percent of Americans liking it. At the National Zoo, Trump rescued a child who'd fallen into the lion's habitat, where Trump leaped into the habitat, punched the lion in the face, snatched the child and escaped to the cheers of the crowd. That night CNN reported that Trump attacked an African immigrant and stole his lunch.

• President Trump in his State of the Union called on Americans stop fighting and start pulling together. Cable news might never agree to peace. Before Trump's State of the Union speech, the Fox News website routinely abbreviated the speech as the SOTU, and the CNN website called it the STFU.

• Michael Jackson's family denounced the lurid Jackson documentary for HBO that premiered at Sundance. He was greatly loved by young people. The day that Michael Jackson died, dozens of kids showed up at the front gates at Neverland, and after a while, the police arrived and let them out.
