The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | • John McCain flew to Washington with brain cancer Tuesday to cast the deciding vote to put the GOP health care bill to a vote, then on Thursday he cast the deciding vote to kill the bill. Democrats hated him one day then loved him the next. He faces censure now for doing Comey's act.

• Hillary Clinton is writing a book called What Happened, explaining why she lost to President Trump. It's said to blame the FBI Director and Russians, not herself for destroying her official e-mail. Hillary may have five-to-ten years to write the book if Attorney General Jeff Sessions can take a hint.

• Congress faces a government shutdown in September if the debt ceiling isn't raised to pay for their spending. It was ever thus. If this annual play were an action movie, the closing film credits would read, The Government Shutdown returns next year in The Government Shutdown Never Dies.

• Sacramento certified a petition Tuesday to be circulated to try to get enough signatures to go on next year's ballot that calls for California to secede from the Union. Every Southerner who's moved to Los Angeles had the same reaction. Just when I thought I'd gotten out, they drag me back in.

• Fox News aired cell phone video taken of a maximum security prison break staged by a black man, a Hispanic man and a Middle Eastern inmate. Their photos are everywhere. If captured they should be required to speak to Congress about the benefits of working together despite our differences.

• The Dallas Cowboys cut wide receiver Lucky Whitehead after they heard he'd been arrested for shoplifting in Virginia. Turns out it was another Lucky Whitehead arrested, but the Cowboys cut him anyway. Maybe the least he can do to straighten out his life is to give up the nickname Lucky.

• The White House launched a national campaign to battle prescription drug abuse Wednesday, targeting both addicts and doctors. Everyone's pitching in to help out. The Boy Scouts of West Virginia now offer a merit badge for achieving the skill to revive your parents from an opiod overdose.

• The CIA reported North Korea would conduct a missile test Thursday that furthers its ability to stage a nuclear attack on the U.S. There are skeptics. I have a liter of Diet Coke and a box of Mentos in my refrigerator, and I believe my nuclear program is more advanced than North Korea's.

• Dunkirk opened in theaters about the epic evacuation of British troops from France at the start of World War II. That war left a lot of unanswered questions. Asians in Los Angeles are such bad drivers, it makes me wonder how many World War II Kamikaze attacks were just accidents.

• Conde Nast travel magazine forecast a record number of U.S. tourists will be visiting Britain as well as the continent of Europe for their August vacations. American tourists in Paris are easy for the French to identify. We're the ones walking around asking for directions to the iPhone Tower.

• Washington, D.C. was reported Friday to have one of the nation's highest alcohol consumption rates per capita. That may not last. Vodka drinkers in Washington, D.C. have begun going to AA or quitting cold turkey because they don't want to get dragged into this whole Russian collusion mess.

• President Trump addressed fifty thousand Boy Scouts at the Jamboree in July and the boys cheered Trump, chanted his name and booed Obama. Educators were horrified. Apparently it takes just a patriotic speech and no teachers around to undo nine months of public school education.

• President Trump vowed to tackle the prescription drug epidemic in America. The prescription drug ads should require actors to act out the drug's side effects too. Who wouldn't love a Chantix commercial showing a guy strangling his Uber driver for missing a turn a week after he quit smoking.

• President Trump hinted for Attorney General Jeff Sessions' resignation. His recusal from the Russia probe laid Trump wide open to a Special Counsel probe. The same day, CNN broke into regular programming with a bulletin announcing that Russia had ties to the former Soviet Union.

• The Food and Drug Administration reports the percentage of U.S. adults who smoke cigarettes is at an all-time low. The heat is on the industry. New Jersey about to raise the legal age for buying tobacco to twenty-one, which I guess is what happens when you elect a health nut to be your governor.

• Discovery Channel viewers were infuriated when its race between Michael Phelps and a shark turned out to be a computer generated shark. Viewers missed the bigger picture. Michael Phelps racing a shark is a metaphor for anybody who tries to beat an American to a plate full of food.
