Trump and Macron murder tree with alleged links to Assad

Trump and Macron murdering a young tree
John Shafthauer

Commentators were confused on 25 April, as Donald Trump and Emmanuel Macron savagely beat a young tree to death. Said reporters quickly changed their tune, however, when it was revealed the sapling may not have been so innocent. Because this tree, according to the self-styled ‘stable genius’ himself, was actually:

A REALY BAD TREE! Links to Assad, Clinton, Arnold Sjhghjsgawarzenneger, Rosie O’ Donnell – the list goes on! HAD TO BE STOPPED! I did the world a favor, but of course the FAKE NEWS media say otherwise!

In reality though, this is one issue in which Trump has the liberal media’s full support.


When the media realised the tree had allegedly broken international law, they were quick to publish headlines like:

When Trump pulverised that clearly evil shrub to death with his patriotic fists, he finally became the president we deserve.

This is despite previously publishing headlines like:

Trump is an illiterate orangutan whose brain has been warped by its close proximity to hair bleach and evil.


Don’t trust him! Never trust a word he says! DO NOT TRUST HIM!!!!

American wave

This American thirst for blood spread around the world.

Well – it spread to Britain, anyway. The only other country that still thinks ‘revenge’ is an effective diplomatic tool.

This meant we saw otherwise sensible reporters like LBC‘s James O’Brien completely losing their cool.

He told one caller to his show:

Fuck the evidence! That tree had chemically infused wasps in it, and anyone who says otherwise is a pissy-pants terror-lover!

O’Brien then ripped his shirt off, shouted “OI! OI! OI!”, and headbutted a nearby vending machine he suspected of having Russian sympathies.

Make like a sap

Having cooled down from their original mania, news outlets are now reporting that the tree-savaging was a:

Moderate success.

Which translates as meaning:

There were no real benefits, but at least it didn’t start World War Three.

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
