News Item:  Despite Mike Flynn's problems and the new question of what the
President knew and when, Donald Trump remains secure in the White House.

Yes, I am the original Orange Roughy.  And I want to hold on to that name.

and I was, at the time, plentiful, they gave me this name.  It sounded better.

Well, you see, my previous name ... actually, I'd rather not talk about it.

What I do want to talk about is that imposter in the White House.  Orange Roughy
might be a good description but he's not orange enough.  He's really just an orange

it.  And it looks like he's in there at least through 2020.
