Jared Kushner Asks Dad to Bribe His Way Into Electoral College

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—With less than a week until Election Day, Jared Kushner has asked his father to bribe his way into the Electoral College.

Noting that Charles Kushner donated two and a half million dollars to Harvard before his son was accepted, Jared pointed out that his dad “might have to pony up more this time around.”

“The Electoral College only accepts five hundred and thirty-eight applicants,” he reportedly told his dad. “Even Lori Loughlin couldn’t get her kids in.”

In addition to persuading his father to “make it rain on the E.C.,” Jared said that he was putting together a “stellar” application.

“I’m pretty sure I can get a letter of recommendation from Bob Woodward,” he said. “We had an awesome interview.”

Between his father’s “Benjamins” and his own “rock-star status,” Jared said that his admission to the Electoral College should be “a lock,” arguing, “How can they turn down the guy who ended the pandemic?”

Kavanaugh Supports Cutoff For Vote-Counting But Not for Drinking

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In an opinion that sparked controversy in legal circles, Brett Kavanaugh wrote that there should be a cutoff for vote-counting but not for drinking.

The Supreme Court Justice wrote that, while ballots received after midnight on Election Night should not be counted, drink orders placed after closing time at a bar should always be honored.

“While the Constitution does not guarantee the right to vote, it clearly enshrines the right to drink,” Kavanaugh wrote. “If a patron is seated at a bar at midnight, drinking should be allowed to continue for hours, if not days, until drinking has been completed.”

Kavanaugh added that there is “no scenario in which it would be right to cut a drinker off.”

“If, for example, a drinker is at a bar after a UB40 concert and some other dudes start dissing UB40, and the dude—the first one—starts punching the other dudes, cutting off that dude would be bogus,” he wrote, adding, “UB40 is the best band evahhhh!”

Trump Tells Stranded Omaha Supporters That Buses Are Rounding the Turn

OMAHA (The Borowitz Report)—Donald J. Trump told supporters who were stranded in freezing temperatures when campaign buses failed to materialize on Tuesday night that the buses were “rounding the turn.”

“The buses will be there very soon,” Trump said. “We are moving very powerfully on buses.”

“One minute, there are no buses, and then, suddenly, like magic, there are buses,” he said. “It’ll be a miracle.”

Trump blasted the media for criticizing the absence of buses instead of emphasizing the “fantastic job I’ve done on buses.”

“The other day, a very smart and respected man called me, and said, ‘Sir, you have the most amazing buses,’ ” Trump said. “But CNN doesn’t report that, because they are horrible people.”

On Wednesday morning, the Trump campaign Web site added to the list of the President’s first-term accomplishments: “Buses.”
