On Tuesday at a Press-Op with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, Comrade Trumpski announced he called Vladimir Putin to congratulate him on his election win at the weekend. When questioned about whether this could be interpreted as endorsing a rigged and unfair election process, White House Press Secretary Sarah-ah-ah-ah Sanders stated, without any trace of irony, that “we’re focussed on our elections. We don’t get the dictate how other countries operate”.
It is unknown whether Trump asked Putin for advice on how to poison Stormy Daniels.
Almost $50billion was wiped off Facebook’s market value yesterday as the scandal surrounding the misuse of user data by Cambridge Analytica, a firm created to subvert….sorry, influence political campaigns around the world.

In a remarkable but unsurprising display of insensitivity last night in the Dáil, Danny Healy-Rae TD castigated the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, for relaying a story about a family, who for medical reasons, were forced by archaic Irish laws to go to the UK for an abortion.
Minister Harris described on a previous radio interview how a couple, who had been trying desperately for a child, became pregnant only to discover that the baby would not survive gestation period. He expressed despair and regret at how those parents must have felt in that situation.
Healy-Rae stated “I don’t know what you meant by it minister, but I surely know that the baby, the little dead baby, didn’t feel very loved.”
Pro-Abortion campaigners and support groups were quick to hold Healy-Rae to account for his lack of compassion in what were distressing circumstances for the family involved.
As an advocate for relaxing drink-driving laws, it seems the Kerry politician has little regard for the lives of children after they are born, only the womb.
Fast and Furious 5 will be shown on ITV this coming weekend as part of the channel’s re-scheduling after Saturday Night Takeaway was pulled from the airwaves due to Ant McPartlin’s arrest for drunk driving. We’ll just leave it at that.
