THE TURKEY

News Item:  Indictments in the Russian case lead to the Trump campaign.  President
takes off on a long Asian trip.


I love turkeys ... I mean hen turkeys.  I like to peck 'em in the ...

Yes, yes.   About this trip.  Do you think you can fly that long.  You know very well
turkeys are no longer what they used to be.  I mean, look at yourself for example ... a

Nobody asked you.  If you don't watch your tongue ... remember it's November and ...
.  Anyhow, I am the biggest turkey there is ... amazing ... incredible, what I've done ...
become.

Yes, yes, yes.  But why do you have to go?

Oh, I hate this November through December season.  It makes me a nervous wreck.

very well I am the biggest turkey in the whole world.  I'll keep faith with all the turkeys
who voted for me ...
