One-Liner Wednesday — A Stable Genius

Stephen Colbert, on this past Thursday’s “Late Show,” reacted to the news that former president Donald Trump once tried to pay his lawyer with a horse. Colbert’s response to that news was:

“I don’t know why we’re surprised. After all, he did describe himself as a ‘stable genius.’”

Written for Linda G. Hill’s One-Liner Wednesday prompt.

      Thanks, I could claim I was just quoting Colbert, but that would be a lie. It was my mistake.

        I know how I feel when I make a mistake and no-one bothers to point it out…….

    I remember Republicans saying people should pay their doctors with chickens (for instance as an anti Medicare [entitlements] and anti Obamacare/ACA) argument.
