Two of America’s finest minds met the other evening, and both agreed to tackle one of the foremost questions facing this country right now. Donald Trump and Rick Perry were in solid agreement that President Barack Obama’s birth certificate maybe, just could be, might actually, you know, really be not real…definitely maybe. They agreed that this was the major problem confronting our economy at the present time. The two men, who’s combined IQ’s might approach 210 (if Trump’s is 120), had a very fruitful discussion at Jean Georges where, according to the restaurant’s website, a three-course prix fixe dinner starts at $98. After the oysters and champagne, Perry, in what he later called a heady moment of just boys bonding, reached into his pants, pulled out his gun, and showed it to Trump who exclaimed – what a fabulous, incredible gun you have. Just the right size…it fits in my hand so perfectly – like it was made for me to hold. Over the cote de boeuf Trump showed Perry his gun, which Perry wrapped his hand around, and was mighty pleased to see that it was was about the same size, give or take a half an inch. Perry said afterwards that he was afraid Trump might have had a bigger gun than he, but was relieved to see that his gun was just as big, maybe even a little bigger.
The two men left their guns out as they discussed the important issues of the day, such as; was Obama’s birth certificate real, and investments. Said Trump; “I think he’s a very impressive guy, I think he’s very ready. He’s been governor of Texas for a long time. Texas has done very well.” He went on to say; the fact that students in Texas currently rank 47th in the nation in literacy, 49th in verbal SAT scores and 46th in math scores, and is the nation’s leader in minimum wage jobs, has more people earning the federal minimum wage or less than any other state, and is tied with Mississippi for the highest percentage of minimum-wage workers, and also has the lowest worker’s comp coverage, is all just hearsay. Just some liberal socialist fabrication. And, he added, the notion that *Perry made 4 billion dollars in budget cuts to the Texas educational system is all just completely false, completely biased, a total lie, and not based on any kind of evidence whatsoever – you have my word on that. Although, he continued, I will say that too much education can be a bad thing. After dinner the two men were seen going off together in Trump’s Limo to shoot off each other’s guns somewhere in the dark out in The Hamptons.
