FBI reassures nation that nuclear documents Trump stole aren’t in picture book format

The FBI has moved to reassure Americans that the nuclear secrets documents supposedly held at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home are not the versions with pictures and colouring-in pages, meaning there is no immediate cause for panic.

“He’s got the version with words, so we’re safe for now,” FBI director Christopher Wray explained. “We believe Trump had engaged a children’s author to convert the documents to a bedtime story so he could understand them – “The very hungry nuclear weapon” was the working title apparently – but that process had only just gotten underway when executed the raid”.

The FBI also made clear that the nuclear codes had been changed since Trump left office. “Please be reassured that the code is no longer 0-0-0-0,” Wray said.

Hollie Hughes ‘appalled’ to discover primary school used English lessons to discuss pronouns

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Fri, 12/08/2022 - 12:43pm in

Liberal Senator Hollie Hughes says Australia’s education system needs to be overhauled, after reports a primary school in her state was using English lessons as a front to talk with children about the various different pronouns.

“The fact that they’re teaching he/his, she/her, they/them, it/its in classrooms shows just how far our education system has fallen,” Hughes said in a fiery interview this morning.

“Instead of sticking to reading, writing and grammar, we have Marxist teachers that are absolutely obsessed with gender. Apparently the children – some as young as seven – were being asked to fill in worksheets about all the different pronouns. It’s sickening.

“They then spent a whole lesson just talking about ‘their/there/they’re’, which seems to be so fashionable with the left at the moment. These poor kids just want to learn how to read and write”.

Hughes said enough was enough. “Here’s an idea. How about we leave the culture wars and this ‘they/them’ rubbish out of classrooms and get back to teaching basic grammar”.
