White House refers to satire column to tout budget


The White House incorporated a sarcastic section in its rundown of news stories intended to advance Trump plan — apparently overlooking the way that the segment savages Trump’s new budget.

Friday’s version of the “1600 Daily” highlighted a Washington Post article by humorist Alexandra Petri with a misleadingly positive title: “Trump’s budget makes perfect sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why.”

Be Petri’s section is a fierce assault on Trump’s proposed spending plan, with cuts local projects and the State Department while boosting the defense budget.

“Some people are complaining that the budget proffered by the Trump administration, despite its wonderful, macho-sounding name, is too vague and makes all sorts of cuts to needed programs for increasing military spending by leaps and bounds,” she wrote Thursday. “These people are wimps.”

“America has been soft and weak for too long,” Petri added. “BUT HOW WILL I SURVIVE ON THIS BUDGET? You may be wondering. I AM A HUMAN CHILD, NOT A COSTLY FIGHTER JET. You may not survive, but that is because you are SOFT and WEAK, something this budget is designed to eliminate.”

Petri next jabs fun at different financing cuts recommended in Trump’s first government spending outline, which was discharged Thursday.

“Affordable housing is a luxury, and we are going to get rid of it,” she said. “Donald Trump does not live in affordable housing and neither should you.”

“AMERICA WILL BE STRONGER THAN IT HAS EVER BEEN! Anyone who survives will be a gun covered in the fur of a rare mammal, capable of fighting the disease with a single muscular flex.”

Trump’s budget blueprint features double-digit cuts to social and ecological projects, while additionally contributing a $54 billion in the defense budget. Trump spending boss Mick Mulvaney occupied with an argumentative trade with correspondents Thursday, as he safeguarded slices to the Meals on Wheels program for seniors.

The proposal’s suggested cuts have officially drawn bipartisan feedback for focusing on projects that help poor people, social and social initiatives and scientific research on climate change.

Presidential budgets typically normally just a proposed manage for Congress since lawmakers control funding.
