Trump’s Russian Sons

Sam Nunberg Trump

Carter Page Trump 
 Shocking Discovery in Collusion Investigation

Sources close to the Mueller probe into connections between President Donald Trump and the Russians have revealed the stunning news that two men who have attracted the interest of investigators are the unacknowledged sons of the president by two different Russian women.  

One of the men has been identified as Carter Page, who worked briefly as a Trump foreign affairs adviser.  The other is Sam Nunberg, a former political adviser on the Trump campaign who says he is a close friend of Trump confidant Roger Stone.

How Mueller's investigators discovered that Page and Nunberg are sons of Trump and therefore half bothers has not been revealed. Speculation is that the mothers of the two men became involved in sexual relationships with Trump during visits to Russia. It is not clear whether the men knew of their familial relationship before it came to be known to investigators.  It is also unknown what connections their mothers had to the Russian government, if any. Both women are Russian citizens, according to the Mueller investigation sources.

Two Men May Be Mueller Targets

Media reports have established that Page has been the subject of FBI interest since 2013 because of his contacts with Russian government officials and business executives, some of whom have close ties to Russian president Vladimir Putin.  Nunberg is known in conservative political circles as a social gadfly who has had access to the White House. He was recently served with a subpoena by the special council's office ordering him to testify before a grand jury.

President Trump has three other sons as well as two daughters. Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump were born to the President's first wife Ivana as was daughter Ivanka.  Barron Trump is the president's son with his current wife Melania. Tiffany Trump is the president's daughter with second wife Marla Maples.
The White House has declined any comment on the discovery of the president's unknown sons and has issued no public denial of the relationship.  So far the president has not responded with tweets, as is his custom when controversial news breaks from the Mueller investigation.  

Though the brothers bear little resemblance to one another or the president they have drawn media attention because of their buffoonish behavior in public.  Page is frequently photographed wearing a shapeless rain hat, even on sunny days.  After receiving his grand jury subpoena Nunberg did several television interviews where he smiled and laughed awkwardly and appeared to be drunk.

Finally, Some 
Non-Fake News

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders surprised  reporters at at the start of today's press briefing by reading a nine-year-old boy's adoring letter to the president.  The letter writer's identity was not revealed and Sanders didn't disclose what steps had been taken to verify the document's authenticity. The briefing was the first where cameras were allowed since Sanders took over from Sean Spicer. Reporters were expected to ask about Republican moves in the Senate to abolish Obamacare and the president's attacks on Attorney General Sessions, among other hot topics. Sanders read the nine-year-old's letter before taking questions.

But was the letter really from a 9-year-old?

Papal Exorcism Fails; 

Victim Seeks Help from Genie

Genie enters brain of man with presidential delusions 

From our religion correspondent

The Vatican:  The attempt by Pope Francis to exorcise a demon from the body of an American man has failed, according to a church spokesperson. The subject of the exorcism was identified only as a wealthy American with possible business ties to the Vatican. The procedure targeted a demon that inhabited the man’s body and led him to believe he was president of the United States.  The Vatican gave no explanation for why the Pope’s efforts failed.The American man was last seen stumbling across St. Peter’s Square and boarding a large limousine with tiny American flags on the front fenders. Later, the man’s wife and daughter told reporters he was taken to a villa on the outskirts of Rome where he was seeking help from a Middle Eastern genie. The genie is known to use a crystal ball to enter a client's brain to examine the contents. No findings have been reported so far.
