News Item:  When President Donald Trump was asked what he was giving Melania,
he said he was working on it.

You know, Doughnaald, I am not going to be fobbed off this year with all your talk
about giving me love, the greatest and most amazing present ever.  I have got you
something; now I want to see my present.

Okay!  Okay!  But you can wait a bit ...

Wait a bit!   It's Christmas Day!  How long do you want me to wait?

Let's not fight in front of Barron.  Anyway there's lots of time left.  The day isn't over

Did you get me something or not?

Now Look, what's the hurry?  After all, you celebrate an orthodox Christmas and
that's a few days hence.

Don't give me that crap.  We have been celebrating on December 25th always.  Show
me my present.

I will!  I will!  But you have to wait.

Now don't tell me ... you've forgotten again ...

How can I forget?  Even the press reminds me.  You know when we lit the Christmas
tree, you looked so beautiful in the light.  Now what about my present?

There you go again ... heard that kind of stall before.  I give up.  Okay, you win.  Its
the warm box under the tree.

Oh, Melania.  You shouldn't have.  Six cheeseburgers ... (Chomp!  Chomp!  Starts
munching away happily).
