The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | The Democratic convention's opening day prayer Monday was interrupted by furious Bernie Sanders supporters who chanted Bernie's name over the minister's prayer. This group has no sense of humor at all. Jokes about socialism are not funny unless the government says they're funny.

The Democratic convention broke out in open floor fights between Bernie Sanders supporters and angry Hillary supporters on the floor. Her election is by no means guaranteed in November. With state after state voting to legalize pot, Democrats are worried they might not get up in time to vote.

California firefighters battled a blaze in the Santa Clarita Valley Saturday that created a huge smoky cloud hovering over Los Angeles. The sun was reduced to a bright orange ball over the city which mesmerized drivers and sunbathers. Democrats charged it was just more free media for Trump.

Mexican president Enrique Nena Piete arrived in Washington D.C. Friday to begin his official state visit to the White House. He later embarked on a tour of several U.S. cities. He wasn't in the United States for three hours before Homeland Security admitted they've completely lost track of him.

The Pokemon Go craze had Millenials walking off cliffs, straying into bad neighborhoods and into traffic this week as they followed smartphone directions to capture the icons. Thanks goodness for the app. Americans were almost at risk of having to pay attention to what's going on in the world.

Democratic delegates began arriving in Philadelphia Sunday for their convention at the city's Omni Center this week. Yesterday's welcoming luncheon for state delegations said it all. Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump a threat to democracy, and the super-delegates all stood up and cheered.

President Obama hosted Mexico's president Enrique Nena Piete at the White House Friday to hail U.S.-Mexico relations. It is part of an annual exchange. Once a year, America's president goes to Mexico to visit our jobs and once a year Mexico's president comes to the U.S. to visit his people.

The Republican convention released one hundred and twenty-five thousand balloons to end the convention Thursday. It's a bipartisan tradition. The Democrats will also release one hundred and twenty-five thousand balloons this Thursday, but theirs will be ribbed for comfort and protection.

Bill Clinton will give a speech at the Democratic convention tonight that focuses on Hillary's career. He always makes a convention more fun. Last night, Bill Clinton walked into the hotel bar in Philadelphia where he asked the waitress for the usual, so she brought him a restraining order.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was added to the list of Democrats who will address the Democratic Convention this week in Philly. They need to be very careful. No one is sure what Elizabeth Warren's play-on music will be, but if it's Hail to the Chief, the Cherokees may declare war.

Donald Trump's GOP convention speech in Cleveland Thursday drew a seventy-five percent approval rating in a tracking poll. Liberals sounded the alarm. Democrats believe as an article of faith that pot gives you the munchies, cocaine gives you the thirsties and Trump gives you the Nazis.

The NFL will insert a computer chip inside footballs as a way of tracking how many field goal attempts would be missed this year if goalposts were narrowed. The chip will show precisely how it'd affect scores. The NFL team hasn't even moved to Las Vegas yet and already they're counting cards.

Johnny Manziel apologized with a note, a carafe of orange juice and a bottle of champagne after he slugged a guy at a wedding dinner last week. There's still hope for him. During the early eighties, I went to rehab so often that my caricature is on the wall at the Betty Ford Center Cafeteria.
