Temporary reprieve: Fog at DMZ

THE SHINBONE STAR

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, natty in camouflaged fatigues with her trademark pearl necklace, explains to reporters how upset Psycho Don was when a fog bank upended his planned trip to the DMZ.

As Pyscho Donald Trump’s goodwill tour across Asia continues, he has not disappointed.

He kissed Saudi ass, insulted the Japanese by telling them they should make cars here and not ship them over. He is obviously unaware that nearly 4 million Japanese autos were made here last year.

If there were any doubts about The Psycho’s mental stability, this trip will be a test beyond any in modern history.

The Republican Party is keeping its head in the sand and practicing its three-wise-monkey move: hear no stupidity, see no stupidity and acknowledge no stupidity. Unless key Republicans and Psycho’s own staff can figure some way short of Duck Tape or confinement, they should lose the midterm…

NEW DELHI (AFP) – Rickshaw driver Sanjay can only afford a handkerchief to shield his face from the smog-filled streets of Delhi, even as many residents rush to buy protective masks to combat the toxic menace.

Better off inhabitants of the world’s most polluted capital are swarming sellers of face masks — costing more than the 300 rupees ($5) that Sanjay earns in a day — and high-tech air purifiers that could easily cost his annual wage.

Delhi authorities Wednesday ordered all 6,000 schools to shut until Sunday after choking smog descended on northern India, while people with breathing difficulties have been told to stay indoors.
