During a press conference in June 2020, President Donald Trump was asked, "When you said you asked your people to slow down testing, were you just kidding or do you have a plan to slow down testing? "I don't kid," Trump replied. "Let me just tell you—let me make it clear: We have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world. We test better than anybody in the world. Our tests are the best in the world, and we have the most of them." Then he continued: "By having more tests, we find more cases… By having more cases, it sounds bad." Trump was promptly lampooned by comedians. "It sounds bad because it is bad," Late Night host Seth ...

Donald Trump In 1980: Wouldn't Run For Political Office
During an interview in 1980, reporter Rona Barrett asked Donald Trump: "Why wouldn't someone like yourself run for political office?" "Because," Trump replied, "I think it's a very mean life. I would love—and I would dedicate my life to this country—but I see it as being a mean life. And I also see that somebody with strong views, and somebody with the kind of views that are maybe a little bit unpopular—which may be right, but may be unpopular—wouldn't necessarily have a chance of getting elected against somebody with no great brain but a big smile."

In an article in The Atlantic, American Enterprise Institute Russian Studies director Leon Aron describes the Russian anekdot, a dark political joke which has been a staple of Russian humor since Soviet times. "The anekdoty I remember best," he writes, "deployed sarcasm and humor against brutality, hypocrisy, and poverty. For example: "How do we know that Adam and Eve were Soviet citizens? They had one apple between the two of them, they had no clothes, and they believed they were living in paradise. "Why do the KGB thugs always walk around in threes? One can read, one can write, and the third keeps an eye on the two intellectuals." Another, more recent, classic: Vladimir Putin is calling the White House, ...

Seth Meyers: Something Odd About Donald Trump's Favorite Doctors
In mid-May 2020, after President Donald Trump revealed that he was taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative measure against COVID-19, "Late Night" host Seth Meyers displayed a photo of Didier Raoult, the eccentric French doctor whose flawed study—a study of 20 patients which medical experts called pathetic and a complete failure—had led to Trump's endorsement of the drug. "Before I show you his photo," Next Meyers showed a photo of Trump's former doctor, Harold Bornstein. "Mon dieu!" he exclaimed of the resemblance. "He's Harold Bornstein's French cousin... Seriously, why do all of Trump's favorite doctors look like they found their medical degree in a Porta Potti at Woodstock? They look like they went into quarantine during the swine flu and just ...

White House
Donald Trump & President Mozzarella
Speaking about America's relations with Italy in October 2019, U.S. President Donald Trump made a host of errors, which left the White House's Italian translator looking utterly bewildered. Among other gaffes, Trump called Italian head of state Sergio Mattarella "President Mozzarella" and claimed that America and Italy had been allies since Ancient Rome. The look of the White House Italian translator as Trump says President Mozzarella for the Italian President and says U.S. and Italy have been allies since Ancient Rome. pic.twitter.com/4c4kTl1wl3— Teymour (@Teymour_Ashkan) October 17, 2019

Donald Trump's UN Speech Rejecting the United Nations
In September 2018, President Donald Trump addressed a General Assembly of the United Nations.  "We will never surrender America's sovereignty to an unelected, unaccountable global bureaucracy," he said. "America is governed by Americans. We reject the ideology of globalism, and we embrace the doctrine of patriotism."  Comedian Stephen Colbert called it "the laugh heard around the world" and compared Trump to a wedding guest who hates weddings.  "So Trump appeared before the United Nations to reject the premise of nations uniting," Colbert said. "Congratulations to Mike and Diane on their wedding," he said in his best Trump impersonation. "We believe the institution of marriage is a sham. We reject the ideology of monogamy. Diane, when Mike gets fat, call me."  * ...

Donald Trump: Great Move By Vladimir Putin
From The Economist: December 29th Barack Obama expelled 35 Russian diplomats involved in intelligence work (along with their families), ordered two Russian diplomatic compounds in America closed, and imposed fresh sanctions against Russian security agencies and a list of individuals. Mr Obama was retaliating for Russian interference in America's elections, which included hacking the computers of high-level Democratic Party officials and leaking the embarrassing contents to the press. The White House expected Russia to eject an equal number of American diplomats. Instead, Mr Putin responded asymmetrically, parrying the American action and mocking Mr Obama as a bitter loser. Mr Putin's performance was carefully choreographed. In the first move Sergei Lavrov, the foreign minister, appeared on state television to declare that ...

Donald Trump & The U.S.S. John McCain
Before a presidential trip to Japan in early 2019, a few months after Donald Trump's surprise visit to Iraq (where he signed "Make America Great Again" caps for several soldiers), the White House demanded that the U.S.S. John McCain—a warship named for the late senator, a war hero whom Trump had famously disparaged for being captured during the Vietnam War—be kept "out of sight". Trump later praised the "well meaning" officials who had honored his wishes, if not their deceased comrade, by covering the ship's name with a giant tarp.
