Wretched repeated retching in response to revolting revelation!

Nation Desperately Hopes Real Reason for Bannon’s Exit Will Not Involve Sex Tape

By Andy Borowitz, The New Yorker

The article below is satire. Andy Borowitz is an American comedian and New York Times-bestselling author who satirizes the news for his column, “The Borowitz Report.”

broad majority of Americans do not believe that they have heard the real reason for Steve Bannon’s abrupt removal from the National Security Council but desperately hope that, when that reason ultimately emerges, it will not involve a sex tape.

The snapshot of a nation praying for Bannon’s exit to be explained by anything but a sex tape was captured by a poll taken late on Wednesday, in which more than ninety per cent of Americans expressed their anxiety about such an outcome.

When poll respondents were asked about the real reason for Bannon’s removal, forty-two per cent said that they hoped it would involve a financial scandal, thirty-one per cent said that they hoped it would somehow relate to Russia, and zero per cent said that they hoped for a sex tape.

The terror inspired by the thought of a Bannon-based sex tape cut across party lines, with Democrats calling the idea slightly more traumatizing than Republicans did.

Finally, when asked how they would react if Bannon’s sudden departure did, in fact, turn out to involve a sex tape, an overwhelming majority “strongly agreed” with the statement “Please, please, please, God, no.”

OMG, Andy – you had me there for a minute. Now I can’t stop laughing. You’re giving me a stomach ache!

clearly he’s been having an affair with Ann Coulter. How could you possibly suppress that obvious fact?

Gallows humor. How have we come to this?

Please, please, please do away with the Electoral College.

Au contraire, Andy—not nearly as revolting as the thought of Trump in a sex tape.

Quoting Trish42:

Au contraire, Andy—not nearly as revolting as the thought of Trump in a sex tape.

OOHH!! But imagine the two together.

Sorry for my delayed return. I was in the bathroom vomiting.

Though the real reason for Bannon’s removal is classified as Secret, a White house staffer leaked it last night – Trump did not like the fact that Bannon’s hair style was getting as much press as his.

Who really knows? These amoral bastards are capable of anything.

I am hoping for an involvement with the Russia thing myself. The thought of viewing such a sex tape is nauseating.
I preferred it when politicians’ sex lives were completely private.
