News Item:  Melania Trump was criticized for wearing a pith helmet on a safari in
Kenya during an African trip to several countries supposedly to repair damage
inflicted by Trump comments.

What were you thinking?  That hat was worn by colonial soldiers and rulers ... even I
know that ...

Oh, Doughnaald!  Not you too!  I thought it looked cute with riding boots.  You know,
like Meryl Streep in "Out of Africa".

But that was colonial times ...

Colonial, colonial, colonial!  That's all they are talking about.  It was nearly a century
ago.  At least when the British were there, they weren't killing each other.  Look at
them now ... one tribe killing another everywhere almost.

You mean like Yugoslavia ...

Oh Doughnaaald!  That was, as you say, below the belt ...  Anyhow Slovenia was not
the worst ...

Below the belt has always been my focus ...

Oh, Doughnaald.  You are such a naughty little boy ...

Big boy now.  I am President.

Don't I know it!  And I have to go to all those hot, smelly places and be criticized for
my clothes.  They always pick on something despite what you do.

Well, we got Kavanaugh through this week ...

That lecher ...

Don't you start.  He's a clever guy ... going to make a fine addition to the Supreme
Court ...
