April Fools' Day Every Day: Donald Trump is President of the United States

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Swedish and Norwegian newspapers announced on Friday that they would refrain from the tradition of publishing April Fools` Day jokes this year over fears that it might spread `fake news`."

The Local SE


"Fake news is a type of hoax or deliberate spread of misinformation, be it via the traditional news media or via social media, with the intent to mislead in order to gain financially or politically.

Wikipedia

On April Fools` Day respected publications have a tradition of publishing obviously fake news as an April Fools` Day joke.

But in an age when social media is saturated with fake news, reputable newspapers are refraining from their traditional April Fool`s Day tomfoolery.

November 8, 2016 when newspapers declared that Donald Trump won the election was the death of the tradition of newspapers publishing faux news on April Fools` Day. Real life has become more absurd than any April Fools` Day joke.

Today for April Fools` Day I could post an article alleging that Trump pulled out his tiny penis and challenged Chinese President Xi Jinping to do the same, confident that even he would be more well-endowed than any Asian. Tomorrow a video of Trump and Jinping comparing their tiny pricks might be the most popular video on YouTube.

Every day is April Fools` Day people, deal with it!
