WASHINGTON — Moments ago, RNC Chairman Reince Priebus welcomed President Obama to RNC Headquarters here on Capitol Hill. The president was accompanied by a solitary reporter.
Yesterday, the Senate gave the president Fast Track authority to continue negotiating the Trans Pacific Partnership, but only because a few stray Democrats in the Senate and the House voted to support the president.
“Barry,” Priebus said, referring to Obama’s nickname in Hawaii, “we saved your butt on this one, so I decided, by the authority vested in me by John McCain and Sarah Palin, to make you an official Republican.”
“But only for today."
As the solitary reporter gaped in astonishment, the president shook Priebus’ hand and smiled, something which he did not do in the Rose Garden earlier today in addressing the nation after the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act against yet another Republican frivolous attack.
But as soon as the unforgivable handshake was accomplished, Sen. Ted Cruz (TP- Texas) (the first GOP presidential candidate to announce that he is entitled to move into The White House on January 20, 2017), perched high above a temporary beam erected solely for the purpose, dumped sixteen tons of ice on the president.
At last report, Cruz was in custody in the D.C. Jail, and the president was still smiling.
