A few days after the election, the president-elect calls her father in Kentucky and asks, “So, Dad, I assume you will be coming to my inauguration?”
“I don’t think so. It’s a long drive; your mom isn’t as young as she used to be, we’ll have the dog with us, and my arthritis is acting up in my knee.”
“Don’t worry about it, Dad, I’ll send Air Force One to pick you up and take your home, and a limousine will pick you up at the door.” she said.
I don’t know. Everybody will be so fancy. What would your mother wear?”
“Oh, Dad,” she replied, “I’ll make sure she has a wonderful gown custom-made by one of the best designers in New York.”
“Honey,” dad complained, “You know we can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.”
The President-elect responded, “Don’t worry Dad. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in D.C. and I’ll ensure your meals are salt-free.”
So her parents reluctantly agree, and on January 20th, 2024 arrived to see their daughter sworn in as the President of the United States. The parents of the new President are seated in the front row. The President’s dad sees that the Speaker of the House is sitting next to him and leans over and whispers.
“You see that woman up there with her hand on the Bible, becoming the President of the United States?”
The Speaker whispered in reply, “Yes, sir, I sure do.”
Her dad says proudly, “Her brother played basketball for the University of Kentucky”.
Yes, Only in Kentucky. And this could be one of my friends kids.
