Your daily guffaw…
DONALD TRUMP: the sun. It's very small. America's bigger, folks. I love it
MAGGIE HABERMAN: While to us reality appears ineluctable, the president doggedly commits to a different course: one less grounded in veracity, but compelling to his followers and frustrating for opponents

HILLARY CLINTON: The Sun is big, what in the world is he talking about
MAGGIE HABERMAN: As Clinton prepares for her 2020 campaign, her more traditionalist take on the Sun provides President Trump with a useful – and familiar – foil

NEW YORK TIMES: we asked the residents of a small-sun +40 district in Arkansas to tell us why they still support Trump. “The sun is smaller than America if you do your research” said one women wearing a “The Sun Is Small” hat.

Trump apologists: What he *meant* was, the sun is very small *compared to other stars* such as Beatlguese and Rigel, whereas America is bigger than many foreign countries, such as Puerto Rico.

SUSAN COLLINS: “The President and Senate Majority Leader assured me that he was mis-quoted, and would never make an incorrect statement of fact.” — then goes to Senate floor, votes “yes” on US is bigger than sun law changing all textbooks to reflect this “fact”.

HANNITY (the night before): lying Dems'll tell you the sun is big. It's the biggest thing in the solar system they'll say, then wheel out endless scientists, paid for by Soros btw, & not 1 of them will prove to decent Americans why my thumb's bigger than the sun when I hold it up

ANYONE: (Insert statement here)
MAGGIE HABERMAN (Thought Bubble): "I wonder what Dennis Milleresque-like words I can use to confound people, make them think I've given this any actual thought and have a valid point to make without actually saying anything of value at all?")

I heard Twitter increased its character limit so that Maggie could fit her mental gymnastics in without using the word “lie”. Do you think that’s true?

Trump's ass is bigger than the sun. Trump's ass is, unfortunately in the USA. Ergo….
