“I honestly can’t remember the last time I bought an American-made car,” Donny said.
“Well,” the car salesman said, “This is the best time to buy American. With all the new tariffs the president wants to impose, the price of foreign imports is going to skyrocket.”
“I know, but I’ve always felt that foreign cars are made with a higher quality than most domestic ones,” Donny said.
Oh, your Hondas and Toyotas are good cars,” the salesman said. “But so are our Chevys. We get really good ratings these days from J. D. Power and Consumer Reports. Our Malibu received the highest dependability rating.”
“Yeah, I saw that,” Donny said. “That’s why I’m here.”
“Plus,” the salesman said, “you’re being a good American. This is how Donald Trump is making America great again.”
At that point, Donny turned around and headed for the door. “Hey, where are you going?” the salesman called after him.
“I’m going across the street to the Honda place,” Donny said.
“What kind of American patriot are you?” the salesman said.
“Accords are built in Marysville, Ohio, asshole.”
