The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | New York Police captured a man who climbed Trump Tower using suction cups and climbing boots and he made it to the twenty-first floor. He explained why afterwards. Apparently, the guy was trying to get an idea of what it will be like to come to this country once Trump is elected president.

The Hollywood Reporter reported the broadcast networks are scrambling to regain TV viewers lost to the cable networks, social media and streaming. TV is getting more and more specialized. For an extra fifty dollars a month, Comcast is now offering cable subscribers a station without Trump.

The Gallup Poll showed a large majority of Americans now believe that the country is heading in the wrong direction. Crowd reaction says it all. Presidents used to get a round of applause when they’d say we need to defeat terrorism to protect the American way of life but now it gets a huge laugh.

President Obama last week defended his Iran nuclear deal against GOP campaign attack. The deal doesn’t destroy Iran’s ability to make nuclear weapons, it just delays it ten years. You have to give him credit, President Obama has seen to it that any future U.S. war with Iran will be a fair fight.

The Department of Defense announced Thursday it is updating its Reagan-era guidelines for gathering intelligence on American citizens. They’d better not ignore the Constitution. This is the United States of America, where every citizen, regardless of race, creed or color, is spied upon equally.

The Treasury Department complained Tuesday that there are billions of dollars in circulation in America just from change lying around people's homes and cars that will go unspent. We need to get organized. Late last night, Michael Phelps found an Olympic gold medal in his couch cushion.

Olympic swimming gold medal legend Michael Phelps announced his retirement on the Today Show Monday after winning five gold medals and a silver in Rio de Janeiro. He's going out a real hero. As sports fans we're lucky to still have him, given the amount of Rio pool water he's swallowed.

Hillary Clinton lashed into Donald Trump at her speech in Scranton Monday claiming that he lacks the temperament and character to be president. She sounded happy about it. Hillary later told CNN she felt she had a good day, but then any day out of jail is a good day for Hillary Clinton.

The Olympics were marred over the weekend when the water in the diving pool turned green with a rancid smell and had to be drained and refilled. Officials explained that chemistry is not an exact science. That's true, ask anyone who has ever blown up the trailer while cooking crystal meth.

Hillary Clinton cited her huge lead over Donald Trump in Pennsylvania polls Monday during her speech in Scranton. There were a lot of high-fives in the room. The Democrats are so confident of winning this election, they're going to release President Obama's original Kenyan birth certificate.

Donald Trump was cheered by a friendly crowd in Ohio when he introduced his immigration vetting plan Monday. The mood of the room could be summed up in one sentence. Our ancestors did not come all the way to America from the British Isles for this place to be overrun by immigrants.

Donald Trump used a Teleprompter to give a foreign policy speech in Ohio Monday in which he laid out his specific plans for national security. He went for an entire hour without insulting Mexicans, Muslims or Asians. He's doing much better since Mel Gibson introduced him to The Patch.

Donald Trump declared war Sunday on the media, which he says has been sabotaging his candidacy since the GOP convention. He remains undaunted. Sometimes the Trump campaign reminds me of the captain's thumbs-up to the newsreel cameras just before the Hindenberg took off.

Iran released a video of U.S. hostages being released after the cash on the U.S. cargo plane was unloaded, belying the U.S. claim it wasn't ransom. Iran can embarrass us with impunity. Once oil dipped below forty dollars a barrel Iran became not worth the invasion under the Cheney Doctrine. --
