News Item:  French President Macron called withdrawal from the Iran deal insane.

Ma'am, you are the First Lady.  If anyone knows the president intimately, it must be

Well, I've  been finding out lately I am not the only one who knows him intimately.

As I was saying Ma'am, you are as close to him as anyone.  You share, a house, a
bed ...

We have separate bedrooms

So, I understand.  But don't you think ...

I have learned not to.  You know he can be obsessive.  If he promises to get me
something, he feels he has to even if I don't want it.

Is that related to the Iran deal?

Of course, he's got a checklist of his election promises and he is intent on crossing
off each item ...

Is that so?

Well, you tell me.  What do you think of a man who prefers a cheeseburger in bed to

Thank you.  Now excuse me.  I have to go and arrange for tonight's cheeseburgers ....
