White House F**ks Up, Promotes Satirical Article That Makes Trump Look Like A MORON

White House F**ks Up, Promotes Satirical Article That Makes Trump Look Like A MORON (TWEET)

Donald Trump’s team in the White House is just as sloppy, lazy, and careless as he is.

Earlier today in its “1600 Daily”, the White House made the horrifying mistake of promoting an article that was clearly satire. The article completely ripped apart Trump’s 2018 budget proposal, resulting in a humiliation that Trump will never forget.

The “1600 Daily” is a daily “summary” of “news, events and updates from the White House” that is created by Trump’s staffers. This wrap up includes features like “Photo of the Day,” a look at “President Trump’s Schedule,” and a list of news reports that are supposed to be flattering to the POTUS. However, today it became clear that some of these staffers are either trolling Trump or not being very careful.

Today’s “1600 Daily” featured two very insulting links to Trump, one of which was a Politico article about Trump “[praising] Irish ‘fight’ at White House ceremony,” and a second satirical article from a Washington Post piece that joked Trump’s budget proposal made “perfect sense.”

The budget piece was written by Washington Post opinion writer Alexandra Petri, who has previously written articles such as “Great news: President Trump did not bite any bats in half during his address to Congress!” Petri regularly pokes fun at Trump, and her budget piece was no different. The article that was shared by the White House was entitled, “Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why.” Here are just some sections from the piece:

“This budget will make America a lean, mean fighting machine with bulging, rippling muscles and not an ounce of fat. America has been weak and soft for too long.”

“AMERICA WILL BE STRONGER THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN. Anyone who survives will be a gun covered in the fur of a rare mammal, capable of fighting disease with a single muscular flex.”

“RAW POWER! HARD RAW POWER GRRRRRR HISSS POW! It will be great.”

Clearly, Petri was mocking Trump, but his staffers were either too dumb or lazy to pick up on it.

You can check this humiliating mistake out below:

 

Petri herself has commented on the fact that the White House shared her satirical article, and she wrote about it in an piece called “How The White House Made Me Real News,” She wrote:

“Either they read it and loved it, especially the part where I wrote that all schoolchildren will be taught by an F-35 in a Make America Great Again hat, or they … did not read it, but liked the headline, ‘Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why’!”

“This is 2017 in a nutshell: You start with what you think is obviously a joke, and then a few days later it is being sent out from the White House.”
