In Humor Veritas

Humorist Andy Borowtz didn't mention The Donald by name but it's clear who he had in mind in his New Yorker blog today:

A rally featuring a racist speaker Friday night in Mobile attracted a crowd of just twenty thousand people, widely considered a disappointing turnout for a racist event in Alabama.

According to racist event planners in the state, a crowd of twenty thousand would rank the event as one of the smaller racist rallies in Alabama this year.

Trump boasted of the  size of last night's turnout but it was  well under predictions by his staff and only about half of what the city of Mobile said it had expected, according to Politico.

"The ghost of George Wallace loomed large," Politico reported, although the focus this time was immigration and not segregation.  Wallace was the segregationist governor of Alabama who stood in the schoolhouse door to block integration.  He won five states as a third party candidate for president in 1968.
