“How can you say it’s untenable?” Donald asked. “I don’t know what that words means, but it’s not that, it’s the opposite. It’s totally tenable.”
“No, it’s not,” Mitch said. “You came up with this elaborate and cockamamie scheme, and it’s not going to work.”
“Wait,” Donald said, “wasn’t it George Washington who said, ‘If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it’?”
“Um, no, Donald,” Mitch said. “George Washington said. ‘I cannot tell a lie.’ It was Adolf Hitler who talked about the big lie thing.”
“Well, whoever said it, it’s working for me,” Donald said. “I started telling my big lie early and often and, as a result, all those suckers believe it to be true and I’m going to finish off the Dems once and for all and be re-elected in 2024.” So thank you Hitler. Thank you for my totally tenable blueprint. Now get on board, Mitch, or get out of my way.”
