Mueller Stirs Controversy by Urging Americans to Read
WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—The special counsel Robert Mueller ignited a firestorm of controversy on Wednesday by recommending that millions of Americans read.
Mueller, seemingly oblivious to the uproar he was about to create, repeatedly commented that there was valuable information available to the American people only by reading a long book.
At the White House, sources said that Donald J. Trump was furious about Mueller's statement because he interpreted the special counsel's pro-reading message as a thinly veiled attack on him.
Speaking to reporters later, on the White House lawn, Trump made it clear that Mueller's exhortation to read had fallen on deaf ears.
"I've never read any of my books, and I certainly don't intend to read his," Trump said.
