Satir på Instagram

Äpplet Johansson

Fördelarna med det nuvarande politiska läget i det stora vita huset på 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue är både små och sällsynta, men en av dem är att det bäddar för utmärkt politisk satir. Precis som med poesi, har det till min förvåning visat sig att Instagram är ett utmärkt forum för satir i tecknat format. Här kommer ett axplock!

Marveling at how well preserved the archaic opinions were, a team of archaeologists from the Smithsonian Institution announced Thursday the discovery of a fully intact 17th-century belief system in Ohio congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH). “It’s just extraordinary to come across a perspective that dates back to the the mid-1600s and shows absolutely no signs of decay,” said Dr. Claire Goedde, explaining that while it’s not uncommon to encounter partial remains of convictions from that era, it’s exceedingly rare to recover a specimen this pristine. “All the 400-year-old viewpoints remain almost completely untouched, from religion’s place in society to the rights of women to the attitude toward science. I can only imagine the insights this single sample will provide as to how people who lived centuries ago saw the world around them.” #TheOnion

Sending a pair of guards scrambling for safety as he gunned his black SUV through a chain-link gate and onto the tarmac, Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who was recently tapped to lead the ongoing investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, chased Air Force One down the runway at Joint Base Andrews moments before takeoff, sources reported Tuesday. “Special Counsel—outta my way!” shouted Mueller, swerving around fuel trucks and screeching onto an active taxiway as the Boeing 747 revved its engines to full power and began accelerating for liftoff. “Stop! Stop the goddamn plane! I need to speak with the president!” #TheOnion

From Matt Bors: Trump cucked by the House of Saud.

Huruvida Trump kommer ge oss fyra år av skämtmaterial har vi undrat tidigare — och vi undrar fortfarande om vi ska skratta eller gråta.
