Trump To The Terminally Ill: I Don’t Care How Sick You Are, Just Don’t Die Before You Vote For Me [VIDEO]

Newsweek reports:

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called on the terminally ill Wednesday to “hang out till November” so they can vote for him in the election against his rival Hillary Clinton.

“I don’t care how sick you are,” the Republican nominee said. “I don’t care if you just came back from the doctor and he gave you the worst possible prognosis, meaning it’s over. Doesn’t matter. Hang out till November 8. Get out and vote.”

He continued: “And then, all we’re gonna say is, ‘We love you and we will remember you always.’ Get out and vote.”

Trump, after narrowing the gap in the polls with Clinton, is now seeing the distance between them widen after the first debate in which he was criticized for talking over his counterpart and making a series of erroneous statements.

    Sassy Trump is already on this story.

    • Todd Allis

      Oh good, I’ll just watch this version.
      Edit: His speeches sound more honest this way.

    • EweTaw

      Now THAT’S sassy!

    • TampaDink

      He was channeling Paul Lynde.

      • barracks9

        With shades of Jim J. Bullock.

        • TampaDink

          Yes! I’ve always liked him.

    • Marides48

      Next, he’ll be pandering to the Zombie Vote?

      • Uncle Mark

        It’s common here in Chicago for the dead to vote in our elections. FYI: my late father is With Her this election year. I have to remember to put the “I voted” sticker on his tombstone.

      • bambinoitaliano

        The city morgues. He will force the pen on the corpses forcing their hands to mark his name on the ballot.

      • Todd20036

        I think Schiflay and Coultergeist will already vote for Drumpf

    • Todd20036

      That voice is WAY too sexy for Trump

  • Treant

    I saw this last night. It’s typical Trump, but if his other comments didn’t make people say “this guy ain’t right in the head,” this one won’t do it.

    Sad, but there it is.

    • Ninja0980

      Problem is there are people in this country who would vote for Satan simply because he had the R next to his name.

      • Treant

        According to Alex, I’m doing the same thing with Hillary. 🙂

  • Reality.Bites

    If only he’d had the foresight to say that to Phyllis Schlafly.

    • Statistics Palin

      Phyllis didn’t really die; she came out as undead. So, she will vote for Trump.

      • Pollos Hermanos

        As long as the sun sets before her polling place closes, she’ll be fine.

  • Green Arrow

    He’s a walking Onion article, this one.

    • Todd Allis

      I feel bad for The Onion this year.

      • Treant

        They’ve done well by invoking aliens, brain parasites, and other improbables. It’s not perfect, but they make do.

      • Jerry

        At the DNC in Philly this year, I met the guy who goes by Tom Tomorrow and does “This Modern World” strip…he also complained about the difficulty doing satire about Trump. Kind of like Tina Fey doing Sarah Palin: just repeating them verbatim is hilarious…how do you satirize that?

    • zhera

      He’s incapable of empathy and human emotions. I’ve never believed more in aliens being here on Earth than now during this election.

      • Mihangel apYrs

        it’s not him – it’s the HAIR!!!!

  • Rex

    That explains the sticky note I just found “Do not pull the plug until November 9, 2016.”

    • Reality.Bites

      Where did you find it?

      • Rex

        Nurse found it.
        I don’t trust her.

        • Reality.Bites

          I was just worried you might have found it on your husband’s/partner’s/boyfriend’s/date’s/FWB’s/Fuckbuddy’s/grindr pick-up’s butt.

          • Rex

            Nope, butt plug removal instructions are wrapped around his ball-gag.

    • Todd Allis

      2106, hope I make it that long.

      • Rex

        Oops, they’re scrueing with me meds agin.

      • zhera

        I’ll settle for 2061.

  • BockMcMillan

    Total asshole, excuse my French ladies!

    • Rex

      No problem, your French ladies are quite lovely.

  • Michael Smith

    Given the demographic trends in America, “hang on long enough to vote for us” might not be a bad strategy for the GOP in the coming years.

    • avidreader

      Right? I wonder, four years from now, how many of those who are going to vote for Trump will still be alive as opposed to those who are going to vote for Hillary.

  • EweTaw

    Such genuine Christian love and charity. Gee. It’s hard to believe he’s going to lose.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    You have got to be fucking kidding me! SMFH

    • Todd20036

      The real frightening thing is, this, by far, is NOT the worst thing to come out of his mouth

  • PLAINTOM

    Most of his voters have health problems but they are not physical problems.

    • RoFaWh

      Given their average age, as evidenced by much photography, I can assure you that most also have physical health problems.

  • skyweaver

    Great Wonkette article that talks about Trump going for the laugh line when he has zero sensibilities about either humor or people:
    http://wonkette.com/605315/donald-trump-is-losing-because-at-heart-hes-the-class-clown

    • Treant

      I’ve often found the narcissistic lack humor. When they try, it comes out as intensely insulting to others because they simply don’t have any projective empathy.

      • skyweaver

        As the child of one of those people, that was well-put

  • Pollos Hermanos
  • Rex

    I did say I was dying for this election to be over, but that was just a phrase, I didn’t mean it literally.

  • Blake J Butler

    O/T: Uh oh spaghettios, Taco Trucks are registering voters in Arizona and Texas. Well good news for us and bad for them.

    • TuuxKabin

      Love the “uh oh spagettios”. Thanks for the link.

  • shellback

    Yo, Donnie. Why not just dig up some corpses and have your minions schlep them to the voting booth.

    • RoFaWh

      They’re already doing that. It would be contrary to the universals of human nature not to.

    • zhera

      Is this Donnie’s way of covering his ass when it’s revealed that dead people are getting registered to vote?

  • I can’t even…

    I supposed I should just be grateful Trump isn’t doing anything whatsoever to actually help his chances on Nov 8th, and in fact daily is undercutting his entire campaign — and the GOP.

    Because of him, Clinton very likely will be our next President, the Senate is probably going to tip Dem, and there’s even a remote chance of the House flipping (small, but not nonexistent). In addition to this, Trump on the ticket is endangering the political careers of state and local Republican candidates, too.

    • David Walker

      I don’t know why this reminds me of the “death panels,” but it does.

      • Snarkaholic

        The rest of his speech: ” We will remember you always…
        …well, at least until the Soylent Green collection truck comes and hauls you away (after paying me for pulling the plug on you).”

        • David Walker

          That’s it!

      • ZhyKitty

        *Big hugs* How have you been? You’ve been on my mind…

        • Reality.Bites

          Someone was asking about you just the other day.

          We really do need a check-in board or something. And Ankle bracelets to report in for us.

          • ZhyKitty

            *Hugs*
            It certainly would be helpful if we did have a check in board or something.

            I have pneumonia. It hasn’t been fun.

          • Richard, another Canuck

            I don’t want to upvote pneumonia, just give you a hug Zhy!

          • ZhyKitty

            LOL!!!!! It’ll be okay. I’m well enough to have a light on in the room now, and I”m sitting up and typing…that’s a big improvement.
            Here, have a germ-free hug back and know you’re loved!
            *Hugs*

          • Reality.Bites

            My father’s been through that twice in recent years and once back in his 40s, so I can say that the passage of time hasn’t made him a worse patient. Nor has he made him a better one. Whiny, passive-egressive, refusing to eat or drink. He kind of makes you root for the pneumonia sometimes.

            I hope you (unlike him) ate to keep your strength up.

          • ZhyKitty

            I’m a terrible patient as well, so I’m told, but eating and drinking are still on the list of things I can do. I can’t seem to get enough ginger ale. It’s stuff like smoking that I can’t handle. I went from a pack a day to 0 in the blink of an eye.

          • TuuxKabin

            I’m going to switch from lemonade to ginger ale in solidarity with you. Both serve as a ‘break up the congestion’ in my system. Hope the same for you. Glad to see you up and at ’em. And that goes for 2guysnamedjoe as well, in case he hasn’t come on to the thread. Abrazos amiga.

          • ZhyKitty

            *Abrazos* The fizz in the ginger ale cleans my swollen tonsils as it goes down. *raises germ laden can, as if to make a toast*
            In solidarity, we rise!

            Glad to see you, and when 2guysnamedjoe is around, you give my love to him if you see him first, which I assume you will. <3

          • TuuxKabin

            He’s sitting right next to me, reading your message. I’m taking him out for a beer in a bit, he just performed the labors of Hercules, ever of good nature, removing the window AC and washing the windows, while I, idle/idol/ideal slut sat here in front of the screen. We’ll raise the glasses to ya’.

          • RoFaWh

            My gut feeling is that he’s just acting out while in a state of denial. Try taking a firm line with him and he may simply fold: “You WILL drink this water, Father, and I’m going to stand here and make sure you do, RIGHT NOW.” glug glug

            My entirely speculative analysis may end up among history’s most disgusting falsehoods.

          • RoFaWh

            Then for gawd’s sake, be careful, Kitty. Rest is very important. And make sure other members of your family keep a sharp eye on you. Pneumonia can kill; victim thinks they just have a bad chest cold and doze off watching TV. They never wake up.

            An old nurse told me it helps to lie with your waist at the top of a flight of stairs with your torso lying down the stairs. This helps your lungs drain thanks to the miracle of gravity.

          • ZhyKitty

            Well, we’ve no stairs in our trailer, but I am propped up with a big stack of pillows behind me. I feel like I’m drowning if I lay down flat, so I’ve been sleeping sitting up…and I sleep a LOT.
            Big Daddy keeps an eye on me when he’s here, otherwise it’s just me and the critters….they’re not the best nurses, but they do wake me up frequently to take them out, etc…
            I would hate to pass away watching tv, especially during a program I really like and want to finish. What a gyp that would be!

          • RoFaWh

            The idea is to get your lungs higher than your throat so the “goo” in the lungs characteristic of pneumonia can slide down, out, and away.

            Head up with pillows behind may feel great, but it is not helping one bit with the issue of draining your lungs.

            [Sorry to be so emphatic but it’s important.]

          • thatotherjean

            Postural drainage, I think that’s called. If you have someone who can hang on to you so you don’t fall, hanging your head and torso over the edge of the bed for a few minutes several times a day can be useful.

            I hope you’re better soon, ZhyKitty!

          • jimbo65

            Good to see you ZhyKitty! Hope you have a speedy recovery soon!

          • ZhyKitty

            Thank you, jimbo, you’re a doll! *hugs*

        • zhera

          You ok, love? Matthew knocking on your door?

          • ZhyKitty

            I’ll be okay as soon as this gets cleared up. I knew I was sick, didn’t go to the dr like I should have, let it turn into something worse…now I’m paying the price for it.
            It’ll pass, though…and then all will be as it was….and on the bright side, I may actually stay off the cigarettes this time.
            I’m so sick I can’t smoke…

          • Herald

            BTDT – the not going to the Dr. thing. It went into pneumonia that time too. It is not fun, I hope you get all the way better soon.

            After all we have to hang in there and vote! But not for the “man”, and I use that term very loosely, who would wreck things to ensure we get no care at all. We know how he feels toward the disabled.

          • ZhyKitty

            No worries! As a disabled person, I get to vote from home. SC makes it tough to get that privilege, but I do have it. I’m with Her. The whole family, those of us who still have the right to vote, will all be standing with Her come Nov.

            Knowing how he feels about women, the poor, LGBTQ people, and the disabled, I shall take particular personal pleasure in voting against him.

          • Herald

            It will be a personal pleasure to vote against trump and for Hillary this time.

          • ZhyKitty

            PS. I’m over 5 hours in-land. Matthew can make a mess here with fall out storms…wind…water, etc, but it can’t directly hit us here… I wouldn’t think so, anyway.
            We’re safe enough.

        • David Walker

          I think I’m doing pretty well. My shrink thinks so, too. I’ve had a problem recently with writing. “Minor stroke,” I’m told. That’s coming back. But I still think Jack is going to walk through the door any minute. Hope you’re doing well.

          • ZhyKitty

            My heart breaks for you… I”m glad you’re hanging in there, but that feeling of waiting for them to come through the door…..
            You have my empathy.
            I’ve wondered how you were…and I was so glad to see you here.
            *Big huggies*

            (Sorry to hear about the minor stroke. Lawdamercy!)

          • David Walker

            Thank you, ZhyKitty. I’m sorry I didn’t take you up on your offer to get in touch. So much so fast. But thanks. Your Big Huggies mean a lot.

    • Herald

      The sheer callousness, selfishness, greed, and much worse sentiments of this statement are beyond appalling. I am going to stop wondering if trump can go no lower, every time I do that he goes massively lower.

  • JT

    Drumpf’s test for his followers is whether you’re stupid enough never to be appalled by anything he says.

  • Neely OHara

    About TIME he courted the terminally ill — he’s been courting the mentally ill for over a year…

    • pj

      his people

      • Neely OHara

        “…the best mentally ill people, really, amazing mentally ill people, believe me, folks…”

  • AtticusP

    Ah, yes. He’s courting the deathbed demographic. How Reaganesque.

    I know how much Trump supporters hate Hillary Clinton. But this pompous, lying, insufferable demagogue asshole is NOT the answer to any of America’s problems.

    Trump’s candidacy IS one of America’s problems.

    • TampaDink

      Speaking of dead Reagan, I saw that even Ronnie’s rabidly republican son, Michael, has announced that his father’s name should never be sullied by association with trump & assured us that his late mother would have voted for Hillary.

      • Chucktech

        Aw, poor little Michael Reagan… Tried so hard to win daddy’s love, but, well, St. Ronnie just wasn’t that into him…

        • AtticusP

          Even Ronald Wilson Reagan could spot an asshole when he saw one.

          (Well, sometimes…)

          Sorry, Mikey…

        • TampaDink

          True. There was that time when he introduced himself to his own father at a political rally.

          • Chucktech

            Gawd, ignominious! Maybe father was having one his increasingly frequent “senior moments.”

          • TampaDink

            In recent years, Michael has claimed that the story isn’t completely accurate….and that when he was in a receiving line in advance of his graduation from prep school, his father was saying the same thing to everyone, “Hello, I’m Ronald Reagan, what is your name?” He says his dad was telling everyone his name since he was not universally known yet…in advance of speaking at the ceremony…and that he was joking when he said it to his son. The truth probably lies somewhere in the middle.

  • Blake Jordan
    • That’s so on point.

    • Jean-Marc in Canada

      And sadly, you still have people voting for Stein and Johnson…..the mind boggles at the ignorance of so many.

      • AtticusP

        J-M: You must never underestimate the stupidity of the American electorate.

        See the presidential election of 2004.

        • Jean-Marc in Canada

          Sadly I don’t, though I do know there are large pockets of sane Americans for whom I have great sympathy.

          • AtticusP

            Thank you.

            I am grateful on our behalf. 😉

        • andrew

          Nor the laziness of well over 40% of the people who don’t even bother to vote.

      • wmforr

        Worst is the Bernie fans who say they’re voting for Johnson, who is 180 from Bern on almost every issue. And so “voting their conscience” is a vote for the Sociopath.

  • Pence will say Trump never said that in 5…. 4…. 3…. 2…. 1….

  • RoFaWh

    Drumpf’s mistaken use of “hang out” instead of the idiomatic “hang on” is more evidence for his stupidity. He may have gone to the best schools and had the best words (really! he said that!) but he’s long since lost the distinction between those words.

    Never mind the sheer callousness and crassness of such a speech!

    • TampaDink

      I love the little boy (wearing glasses) who doesn’t even acknowledge the scary man standing behind him.

      • AtticusP

        I think it’s safe to say this wasn’t a Montessori school…

        • TampaDink

          Indeed. I think that we can also rule out the possibility of it being a public school…and *if* it is a public school, whoever invited this clown & his entourage to interrupt the school day should be fired along with the teacher who asks the children to pledge allegiance to the bible.

          • AtticusP

            I agree with all that you posted. But I think this was a Christian school. Hard to believe that the teacher would’ve pulled that crap, knowing that it was being filmed. Unless she has career suicide?

          • TuuxKabin

            It is a xtain school. And for the comfort level of the students they do not enroll ‘different’ children, i.e. minority children or children with limited or developmentally challenged qualities.

          • AtticusP

            I think that the little girl who handed Trump what her teacher called their “foundation” (probably the Wholly Babble”) was a minority, no?

          • TuuxKabin

            Here’s the link I’m quoting:

            While the classroom — sans the nervous kid — seemed pleased with Trump’s visit, several liberal advocacy groups were not.

            Activists slammed Trump for choosing to drop by the tiny Christian school, which is part of International the Church of Las Vegas, because it allegedly discriminates against the disabled and people of other faiths.

            Annette Magnus-Marquart, an official with the group Battle Born Progress, pointed to a section of a handbook for the International Christian Academy that says admission can be denied “to any individual whose family or personal lifestyle is not consistent with the philosophy or purpose of the school.”

          • AtticusP

            Perhaps Clarence Thomas is that little girl’s grandfather.

            That would explain a lot.

          • TuuxKabin

            I like the way you think.

          • TampaDink

            I have a gut feeling that the stunt was planned in advance, in great detail. But I do wonder about the prospects of the little boy wearing glasses who seemed oblivious to the orange menace standing right behind him. Do you suppose he’s been expelled yet?

          • AtticusP

            Sacrificed, probably.

    Well I intend to vote as soon as early voting opens in Ohio (Oct 11?). If I get eaten by a land shark between then and the election, y’all can thank me for my dead vote.

    • RoFaWh

      Is “land shark” a new euphemism for “orally-fixated muscular dude with body hair”?

    • Chucktech

      Yeah, that Berlin Wall was thousands of miles long over some of the roughest terrain in Germany, you know…

  • TampaDink

    He lacks tact, timing & the intelligence to use this vile pitch without bringing up early voting.

    • Tor

      So, what happens if someone votes early, but dies before election day?

      Wait. The day isn’t over yet.

    • TexasBoy

      I wouldn’t bet on it. He always seems to be able to go lower.

    • BearEyes

      he has a knack for finding the sub-basement to the sub-basement.

      • RoFaWh

        What he actually found is a sewer sump.

    • I’ve been asking myself this since the day he descended on that gaudy escalator and proceeded to say that Mexicans were “drug dealers, murderers and rapists…and some of them, I assume, are good people…I don’t know.”

      He’s blasted through the bottom of that barrel repeatedly. So no, he can.

  • Snarkaholic

    Esteemed Colleagues: I’m undecided about my voting method for this election (concerned about hacking), so I’m taking a survey:
    Should I mail in my ballot (which I have received) or should I go to the polls in person? In your opinion(s), which voting method do you think will be less likely to be fucked with?
    Thank you for your assistance.

    • Tor

      I don’t know where you live, and whether you have a paper ballot at the polling place, but with mail-in, there is at least, a piece of paper.

      • Snarkaholic

        I live in Atlantic City. We have ancient voting machines…not sure if they’re connected to a computer.

    • a lot of it depends on where you live. i like to vote in person, just to see “what technology” is doing for my vote this time around. or should i say “doing to?”

      voting on paper is great… when it is counted. in some states, if the ‘normal’ votes show a winner, and the number exceeds the number of mail ins, to save time and money, those mailed in votes are not tabulated. same deal in some states for “provisional” votes, like when you can’t find your DL on voting day but go down and cast a ballot anyway.

      the best answer was given; check your state’s election laws (cause wow! they do vary. i’ve lived in five states now, as a voter, and it is sort of disgusting and amazing). find out and research your state officials, how votes are counted, who counts them, where they go… it’s a lot of fucking work. and it shouldn’t be.

      technology is the scary part. not b/c it cannot work, but at least here in OH? b/c old people with very little up to date understanding of how e-voting machines work. or the people who make them are, politically speaking. hint: afaik, there aren’t any Dem owned/leaning manufacturers of voting machines in critical states.

      • Snarkaholic

        Thanks!

    • Silver Badger

      I use a mail in ballot. I’m much too lazy to drive to the polls and way to fat too fit into the voting booth.

    • Todd20036

      She doesn’t have to. She impresses people with her presidential qualities.
      Trump, not so much

      • RoFaWh

        Hillary may not end up in the pantheon of Truly Great Presidents, but she’ll certainly be considered a lot better than merely competent.

        • McSwagg

          I’m thinking about one of those posters that shows portraits of all the Presidents in order. I look forward to the bottom row being this series: Black (Obama), Woman (Hillary), [Asian, Hispanic, LGBT, … (in no particular order)]. It would be a refreshing change from the WASP (except for Kennedy) stranglehold.

  • Mark McGovern

    Sheesh. Next he’ll be courting the undead.

    • Have you seen Trump’s rally audiences?

      • Mark McGovern

        there is a difference between the undead and the deplorably undead. The latter are beyond redemption.

    • Bomer

      I thought he already had Pat Robertson in his corner.

    I guess this is no worse than Chicago Mayor Dailey providing the votes of the dead to elect Kennedy. But Kennedy made a hell of a better president than this yellow menace would.

  • Gustav2

    Yes, Silent Generation, hang in there to vote for Trump!

    You are his only hope.

  • Ross

    From article:

    “Trump, after narrowing the gap in the polls with Clinton, is now seeing the distance between them widen after the first debate in which he was criticized for talking over his counterpart and making a series of erroneous statements.”

    I have corrected this:

    Trump, after narrowing the gap in the polls with Clinton, is now seeing the distance between them widen after the first debate in which he was criticized for talking over his counterpart, making a series of erroneous statements, and so amply demonstrating that he is bat-shit crazy and a danger to the country.

    • TrollopeReader

      538 is now 78.8 % for Hillary. Senate has gone down a bit for D’s …57%.

      Let’s not forget that “stupendously unqualified” phrase.

    Such a caring guy. A reminder that if he wins a lot of people will lose their insurance coverage.

    • Friday

      That’s why he’s appealing to the “You’ll probably be dead anyway, I don’t care” vote.

  • greenmanTN

    Well, if I have a medical emergency on Election Day I’d probably have the paramedics stop by my voting place on the way to the hospital too just to vote against Trump.

    I was wondering where my voter registration card was, couldn’t find it, but last night it turned up in a stack of old mail. It hadn’t gotten quite to the state of “hissy fit” but it was headed in that direction…

    • Treant

      I found mine last week! I knew what drawer it was in, but you know how that goes. Everything else ever lost, including some socks the dryer ate, were also packed in there.

      I won’t need it, but it’s better safe than sorry.

      • TrollopeReader

        have you reunited the socks with their mates??

        • Treant

          I was going to, but I was afraid of a sock-antisock reaction after their trip through the wormhole.

    • Todd20036

      I’m lucky. I don’t need my card, just my state ID, if that.
      In DC, if you are up to date, they don’t care.

      • greenmanTN

        You also don’t have representation in Congress (which is insane), so….

    • Friday

      As much as I’d like to vote on the day, I’m in Georgia and I think I want a mail-in ballot if I can have one. They sneak a lot of Fundies in in unchallenged elections and I would prefer to check out every name on the thing for the local races.

      • greenmanTN

        I haven’t really looked into early voting here. Unless this is a total rout, which it may be, I enjoy being there on Election Day, looking people in the eye and thinking “I just negated your vote!” In “red states” you get your jollies where you can.

        • Friday

          It’s been suppressed a lot, but they had some changes rolled back. It’s usually down to if I can physically make it to the polls. (In this pretty-liberal town they don’t even make a thing of election day, probably hoping people’ll mis it entirely.)

        • Bomer

          I’m happy what since we’ve moved to a new state I can actually get on the permanent early voter ballot. Now I don’t have to worry about leaving my grandmother home alone while I walk to the polling place.

          • greenmanTN

            I’ve been where you are, so whatever you do, just try to keep your sanity. Laugh about it if you can because crying doesn’t help a damn thing. 😉

          • Bomer

            I laugh as often as I can. It might be a tad more in the direction of dark humor than might otherwise be normal, but it’s that or alternating between crying and screaming some days. ^_^

            “All I Ever Needed To Know, I Learned From A Forensic Pathology Thriller.” Smear a little Vick’s Vaporub under your nose and you can deal with about anything.

            I had my limits. No, I will not sleep in your bed. I will do about anything, but I’m not touching, nor do I want to see, your cooch.

            It helped me to see the humor in the situation even when I was in it. “Hmmm. What do you call it when your least emotionally demonstrative child, and the one you were least emotionally demonstrative to, is the one who ends up as your caretaker? Just desserts.”

    Yes, let’s make the terminally ill charter the course of the entire country for the next four years and possibly more through the SC. Just like Brexit where deluded pensioners altered the course of younger generations. Very smart!

  • Dear Mr Trump, In case you forgot you are running to be President of the free world. The stage is not for your warped comedy act on “America’s Got Talent”. Even if it was “America’s Got Talent” you would have been thrown off the stage.

    Last month I was diagnosed with stage 5 cancer.

    My doctor told me I had but weeks to live.

    I freaked out! “But doctor! Ya’ gotta keep me alive until November 8th! Ya’ gotta!”

    The doctors asked, bewildered: “But why November 8?”

    “So I can vote for Hillary! I gotta do everything I can to keep the orange menace from winning!”

    The doctor swung into action. He ordered an aggressive experimental new treatment. He daily watched over my progress, making subtle adjustments. He even sang me to sleep every night.

    I asked: “Why are you going to such lengths to help me?

    “I also gotta do everything I can to keep the orange menace from winning!”

    Well, well, I am thrilled to announce a miracle! My cancer has vanished!

    And I will be with her on November 8.

    So will my doctor.
