Borowitz: Trump freaks out after giant statue of Obama appears on WH lawn

I don't know how I missed this yesterday, but it's a good one. "He cares so much about history" is the best line.



WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Borowitz Report)—Donald Trump “totally freaked out” on Tuesday morning, after a gigantic statue of the former President Barack Obama appeared on the White House lawn overnight, sources have confirmed.

Trump first discovered the statue, which stands approximately thirty feet tall, when he awoke to see the sculptural rendering of Obama’s face staring at him through his bedroom window.

Shaken, Trump immediately summoned his Secret Service detail to escort him down to the White House bunker, where he unsuccessfully tried to steady his nerves.

At 7 a.m., an emergency meeting of top White House advisers was convened, during which an increasingly agitated Trump demanded to know the origin of the mysterious Obama behemoth.

Trump, who theorized that the gargantuan statue had been placed on the White House grounds by either George Soros or Jeff Bezos, ordered that the imposing monument to his predecessor be torn down and disposed of at once.

Reached by reporters at his home, Obama said that he “wasn’t sure” that he deserved a statue, especially such a large one, but expressed surprise at Trump’s decision to tear it down.

“It’s not like him,” Obama said. “He cares so much about history.”

Obama’s words did little to calm Trump, however, who reportedly ordered the Secret Service to foil any plot to deposit a giant statue of Hillary Clinton on the White House lawn.

4. This is hilarious!

I am just picturing it in my mind and Trump completely losing his shit over it!

I would give anything to see giant statues of Obama and Hillary on the White House lawn, or at least just outside the White House gates, just to troll him and drive him off the deep end.

In fact, wouldn't it be funny, if we could get Obama and Hillary look-alikes to show up everywhere he went? At all his rallies, at his golf clubs, outside his windows wherever he was. I get a certain kind of sadistic glee thinking of ways to drive him completely insane.

10. Damn I wish I had the skills and resources

That story would make a great animation

The statue striding up Penn Ave toward the WH, smiling and waving, like the Statue of Liberty in Ghostbusters II. It carefully pushes the fence aside and walks to the East Wing. The Secret Service guys look astonished, but rather pleased. The statue waves to them and points to the bedroom window. SSers give a kind of OK shrug. It goes to the window and looks in. Interior shot of the room: It's knee deep in fast food wrappers, coke cans and dirty towels - a hotel's staff nightmare. The walls are covered with TV screens. Moron is only a shadowy outline on the bed, barely seen by the flickering light from the screens. Reverse close up to the statue which smiles and waves to Moron. Quick back shot to the lawn where we hear horrific screams coming from the East Wing. The statue leaves, but on the way he winks at the SSers.

14. Somebody needs to take your idea and turn it into a reality.

Even if it's just animation, it would work for me!
