News Item:  Trump's threatened government shutdown began yesterday.  He will not
be going to Florida for Christmas.

For my border wall, I will do anything -- even give up Christmas with the whole family
... even if I have to eat cheeseburgers by myself in the White House.

Mr. President, you love cheeseburgers  and ...

That I do.  That I do, but not at Christmas.

And aren't the First Lady and Barron returning to Florida to be with you?

That they are.  Isn't that nice of them.

Still, I'll miss the rest of the family ... and this place is no vacation.

As you would say, Sir, the work of the nation takes precedence.

Number one.  Number one.  You took the words right out of my mouth.  But don't dare
do it with my cheeseburger even if a doctor says so.

Yes, Mr. President.

What are they planning for Christmas dinner in the kitchen?  Make sure they have
Barron's favorite dessert.  Oh yes.  Don't forget I'll need a cheeseburger for a late
night snack.

Yes, sir.  That's a routine that never changes.

And it never will.  They are my life blood.

Yes indeed, Sir.  The first Lady and young Barron are ...

No, no, you fool ... CHEESEBURGERS!
