Trump invites the Pope to Lunch

President Trump invited the Pope for lunch on his mega yacht, the Pope accepted and during lunch, a puff of wind blew the Pontiff’s hat off, right into the water.
 
It floated off about 50 feet, then the wind died down and it just floated in place.
 
The crew and the secret service were scrambling to launch a boat to go get it, when Trump waved them off, saying “Never mind, boys, I’ll get it.”
 
Then Donald climbed over the side of the yacht, walked on the water to the hat, picked it up, walked back on the water, climbed onto the yacht, and handed the Pope his hat.
 
The crew was speechless. The security team and the Pope’s entourage were speechless. No one knew what to say, not even the Pope.
 
But that afternoon, NBC, CBS, ABC, MSNBC, CNN all knew how to cover the story. Their banner
headlines read:
 
TRUMP CAN’T SWIM!”

    Here’s a Link to RT’s Cross Talk program. IMHO a lot more grown up than the pap we’re served by the BBC.

    This seems to have been based on one of LBJ’s great anecdotes. “If I one day I walked on top of the water across the Potomac, the headline that afternoon would be ‘President Can’t Swim”‘. Still funny, though.
