HOLLYWOOD — God Bless America, and how’s everybody?

The State Department warned college students not to travel to some parts of Mexico on spring break due to lawlessness. Not that back home on campus is any safer. The reason I’m alive today is because Norman, Oklahoma is flat, so that when you pass out, you don’t fall off a cliff or anything.

Psychology Today reports that the arrival of spring heralds a marked improvement in human happiness and an overall feeling of well being. Spring can’t come soon enough. I don’t want to say I was in a surly mood last night but my Uber driver gave me just one star, and it was a self-driving car.

Democrats took turns on TV blasting Trump for congratulating Vladimir Putin on Sunday’s election win. Meanwhile the porn star passed a lie detector test to verify her affair with Trump. And to think I’m old enough to remember when Democrats had sex and Republicans hated the Russians.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Tuesday it isn’t the business of the U.S. to tell other countries how to elect their leaders. Democracy is a little different in every country, Vladimir Putin has just been re-elected president of Russia with 135 percent of the vote.

Colonel Ralph Peters resigned as Fox News analyst, saying it has become a propaganda machine for Trump. He was replaced in Vietnam by the Viet Cong, he was replaced in Iraq by ISIS, and now he’s being replaced on Fox News by beautiful blondes. Just once in his life he’d like a fighting chance.

Playboy Playmate Karen McDougal filed suit against the National Enquirer for not printing her story of an affair with Donald Trump twenty years ago. The paper paid her $100,000 for the story then never printed it. The newspaper is in the news business, so they’re looking for ANY story where Trump remained faithful to his marriage, because that would be news and they’d print it.
