ALL COMEDY IS CONSERVATIVE:

Inside Trump's 'truly bizarre' visit to Mt. Vernon: The 45th president -- no student of history -- marveled at the first president's failure to name his historic compound after himself. (ELIANA JOHNSON and DANIEL LIPPMAN 04/10/2019, Politico)

During a guided tour of Mount Vernon last April with French president Emmanuel Macron, Trump learned that Washington was one of the major real-estate speculators of his era. So, he couldn't understand why America's first president didn't name his historic Virginia compound or any of the other property he acquired after himself.

"If he was smart, he would've put his name on it," Trump said, according to three sources briefed on the exchange. "You've got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you."

The VIPs' tour guide for the evening, Mount Vernon president and CEO Doug Bradburn, told the president that Washington did, after all, succeed in getting the nation's capital named after him.

Donald will be remembered only as the butt of jokes, like Spiro Agnew.
