Second day in a row that I have missed out with the subject line.  Here it is again.   A do-over- so I might remember next time:

Americans Startled by Spectacle of President Who Can Speak English

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Americans who were watching television on Wednesday morning witnessed the startling spectacle of an English-speaking President, viewers have confirmed.

All of the major cable news networks interrupted their regularly scheduled programs to cover the phenomenon, as a man who was identified as "President" spoke in complete, grammatically correct English sentences with no visible sign of strain or discomfort.

Just minutes into the telecast, thousands of viewers called the networks to inquire if they were witnessing a hoax.

"I couldn't believe what I was seeing," Carol Foyler, a viewer in Akron, Ohio, said. "It had to be special effects or something."

While the spectacle might have appeared jarring to many, cable news insiders reported that the networks had in fact aired several hundred speeches by an English-speaking President between the years 2009 and 2017.

Patriotism is not a short and frenzied outburst of emotion but the tranquil and steady dedication of a lifetime.
