100 Senators beckoned to the White House to discuss North Korea…who gets the helicopter ride out?

 

In a quirky twist, Donald Trump has invited all 100 United States Senators to the groovin’ White House to be briefed about North Korea on Wednesday.

 

 

Top Trump administration officials will hold a rare briefing on Wednesday at the White House for the entire U.S. Senate on the situation in North Korea.

 

All 100 senators have been asked to the White House for the briefing by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and General Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said White House spokesman Sean Spicer on Monday.

 

While administration officials routinely travel to Capitol Hill to address members of Congress on foreign policy matters, it is unusual for the entire Senate to go to the White House, and for all four of those officials to be involved.

 

 

<gulp>

 

 

I can’t help it. I’ve watched too many movies, dabbled in too much cloak and dagger, political villain type of lore, written and cinematic, and I can’t help but envision a scenario in which President Trump, having rounded up a prospective crop of suspects under the auspices of “company business,” uses the occasion’s entrapped convenience to selectively “detain” certain Senators who have been roundly insubordinate and socialist.

 

The event finally draws to a close.  President Trump thanks everyone for attending and bids them adieu for the evening.

 

Ninety-six party guests leave.

 

The camera pans to 4 empty cars sitting in the parking lot.

 

 

 

 

 

And in the next scene, high in the night sky, a military helicopter carries the other 4 Senators hastily to their ultimate destination.

 

The question: who would it be?

 

I have the misfortune of living in California and there are no shortage of choices in my backyard. ¬†However, due to sheer despicable levels of intolerableness, Trump Helicopter Tours’ maiden flight should house none other than the horror from New York, Chuck himself.
