At the age of 85, I've come to realize that I don't approve of most political jokes. I've seen too many of them getting elected. I've also seen the honest politician who, when he is bought, will stay bought.

However, there are a few political jokes that speak the truth and are worth repeating!

“Have you ever noticed that Christians who want to share their religious or political views with you, who almost never want you to share yours with them?”

Unfortunately there's truth about “Americans who have crossed the ocean to fight for democracy for others and yet, won't cross the street to vote.”

Nowadays “the consensus after an election is that 100% of Americans think 50% of Americans have lost their minds” ... and maybe we have!

They say “St. Patrick drove the snakes out of Ireland.” (If he was alive today I'm certain he'd do that for Congress!)

As a believer that the paranormal sometimes exists, I do have a favorite mythical creature: the honest politician.

“Republicans and Democrats are like divorced parents who care more about getting the kids to hate the other one than they are their well-being.” (No wonder bullying is more alive today than at any other time in history!)

What Donald Trump is doing is the same kind of thing! He's pitting Republicans against Democrats and visa/versa? He's not making “America Great Again,” he's making America Hate Again! The only one that Donald Trump wants to “Make America Great Again” is the One Percent!

I do agree that we need to show more compassion for those with mental illness, but letting Donald Trump run for president was a definite "no, no"! It was somewhat apparent what his IQ was when he called some countries, "s-hole countries!" He could have voiced it as: "turd-world countries"; thereby, erasing some doubt!

By now he's convinced many that “minorities have the race card and women have the gender card,” and so would he call what his follower have The Trump Card?

One day history will quote President Trump for having been well-known for not telling the truth, which contradicts our first U.S. president – George Washington – who said he “could not tell a lie.”
