WASHINGTON DC (AFA NewsWire) In an apparent effort to reassure a public increasingly anxious about the president's mental state, three anonymous sources within the Trump White House have separately reported that the device containing the U.S. nuclear launch codes--popularly known as the "Nuclear Football"--has been replaced with a "Nuclear Rubik's Cube". "This ensures that if the president flies into one of his frequent tantrums," says the first leaker, "And his rage-tweeting isn't enough, should he decide to send some ICBMs to take out, I dunno, CNN or something, he'd have to get all of the six sides solidly one color...

WASHINGTON, DC (AFA NewsWire) Brett Kavanaugh surprised many today by withdrawing from his nomination to fill the Supreme Court seat being vacated by Justice Anthony Kennedy. He surprised everyone, however, with the announcement he was leaving the judiciary branch of government altogether to start his own brewpub. "I love beer," said an ebullient Kavanaugh to a group of reporters, "Always have, always will. This whole hearing process, painful as it was, was also cathartic, a revelation. It brought me back to my true passion, the one constant in my life, the one thing I could always count on and that... Continue reading

(AFA) WASHINGTON, DC — Hard on the heels of the president's announcement of establishing a Space Force to wage battles beyond earth's atmosphere, Mr. Trump today proposed digging a hole through the center of the earth that goes all the way to China. "Think of it," said the president, speaking on the phone to the hosts of Fox & Friends, “A direct route to China, an extremely important trading partner, just by digging a big, beautiful hole straight down and going the other side!” Mr. Trump emphasized the benefits to American trade, “We can just throw the parts needed into...

“Plausability is no longer an issue,” say those close to Trump’s besieged Chief of Staff Speaking to a reporter in his White House office, John Kelly made no effort to conceal a whiteboard listing “reasons” for his resignation.

Maybe we should put the so-called Nuclear Football, the codes for launching a nuclear strike, inside an actual football. A regulation NFL Wilson. Trump would never question it. This way, if he ever gets in a mood to drop the Big One on somebody, he'll have to unlace that football first. And (this is important), tell him the protocol is that only he ("You alone must do it, sir!") is permitted to open it and nobody is allowed to help him or the deal is off. And no puncturing. Then, while the president is busy prying and tugging at the... Continue reading

NAMBIA (AFA NewsWire) Emphasizing that they have no extradition treaty with the United States, the African nation of Nambia has invited Donald Trump to be that country's "President for Life". "Just please bring all the gold from your many buildings," requests Quentin Faraji, Nambia's minister of finance, speaking on behalf of the country's ruling party in an interview with the Nambian Chronicle. "Since the calamitous covfefe crop failures, our only growth industry is importing American millionaires' offshore bank accounts," Faraji said, "We have attractively low interest rates, tax loopholes you could drive a truck full of shell companies through, and...
