The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | Journal Psychology reported on a survey which found that Americans get most annoyed when you tell them all about the details of your new exercise regimen or the new diet that you've begun. It simply begs for retribution. For instance I hate vegans, but then, maybe I'm cooking them wrong.

• President Trump wondered aloud why George Washington didn't put his own name on Mount Vernon. It was named after British Admiral Ed Vernon who defeated and turned back the Spanish in 1739. It speaks to us today that the Father of our Country named his house after the Border Patrol.

• House Democrats predicted Thursday that Attorney General William Barr will wield a sharpie on the Mueller Report and black out Trump's suspected sins. There's no comedy in that. I could say that I've always led a healthy and positive life if I had William Barr around to redact my Twenties.

• Attorney General William Barr looked a House committee in the eye Tuesday and testified that the U.S. government spied on GOP candidate Trump's presidential campaign in 2016. That's bad news for Barack Obama. The good news is, the Ecuadorian Embassy in London has a spare bed now.

• Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was dragged out of the Ecuadorian Embassy in London by the police to face hacking-spy charges. He'd holed up inside the Embassy for seven years. So if Assange ever drops by your house for a beer, whatever you do, don't tell him to make himself at home.

• HBO will show a drama called Chernobyl about the nuclear power plant explosion in Ukraine thirty-three years ago. There are now plans to build a Disneyworld-type park at the waste site. The difference between Chernobyl and Disneyworld is that at Chernobyl, the six-foot-tall mouse is for real.

• U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed Central Americans are coming to the U.S. to escape climate change. I'm starting to like her. Much of AOC's Green New Deal plan involves recycling, and every time she delivers a policy statement it allows comedians to recycle our old Dan Quayle jokes.

• The Weather Channel reported unusually beautiful weather in the Midwest this week after the region had suffered through a brutal winter full of vortexes. People happily felt like a siege had been lifted. It was so warm in Chicago Monday that Jussie Smollett was attacked by the Easter Bunny.

• Chicago's first warm weekend in five months kept police and ER crews busy Sunday. It set off a street violence spree in which twenty-eight people were shot and wounded. Of course this is just spring training, so the shooters don't start hitting the bulls-eye till June or July, it's just like baseball.

• Congresswoman Ilhan Omar went on TV and insulted President Trump's advisor on illegal immigration, Stephen Miller, calling him a White Nationalist. Is this a great country or what? Where else in the world but in America can a Muslim call a Jew a Nazi and it not be meant as a compliment.

• NASA sent back to Earth photos from the International Space Station of space walks. Recent lunar photos show that all the U.S. flags that American astronauts once planted on the moon have been bleached completely white by the radiation. This makes the moon an official province of France.

• The National Enquirer ran a crazy headline saying Queen Elizabeth is dying in Buckingham Palace this week due to her bruised wrist. I do worry about her like we all do. Prince Philip just gave up his driver's license and now I don't who is going to drive Queen Elizabeth to the Dollar Store.

• Billboard Magazine reported that Ozzie Osborne has been forced to postpone his spring and summer rock tour while he recuperates from a nasty fall. His bones are pretty brittle by now. His doctor is recommending that he switch to eating a bat onstage that's higher in calcium and Vitamin D.

• Barack Obama urged Democratic candidates to appeal to independent Middle America voters if they want to win the general election. One guy took his advice. Within hours after Obama urged the Democrats to move to the center, Joe Biden started kissing women in the small of the back.

• President Trump accused Democrats of being in favor of open borders Monday as he stepped up his Twitter war with liberals who block money to build the border wall. What I like about Trump is his willingness to shoot straight from the hip. It's an inspiration to arthritis sufferers everywhere.

• Afghan president Ashraf Ghani assembled a council to talk peace with the Taliban according to a Voice of America Radio broadcast. However, in Kabul a young woman staged a suicide bombing attack Sunday. It's not that she wanted to die for Allah, she was just sick of listening to One Direction.
