Washington D.C.—Local author P.A.Kane, the 1.5 millionth ranked author on Amazon, was among tens of people who attended President Trump’s farewell from Andrews Air Force Base in Washington last week. Downing sandwiches at the Egg McMuffin table Kane caught the eye of the President’s daughter, Tiffany.
Kane received the invitation for the farewell despite being a vocal opponent of the President, not only during his time in office, but dating back to when he first heard the boorish business man run his self-important mouth back in the 1980’s. But the promise of endless Egg McMuffins and being up close and personal as Trump flew away from four years of American carnage was too much for the author to resist.
Catching his breath between sandwiches, Kane barely heard the soon to be former President repeat the same old lies about the “greatest economy,” with “numbers” that were “at a level that nobody had ever seen before.” or the one about “the “largest tax cut and reform in the history of our country by far.” But after taking a break from the breakfast sandwiches Kane, trying to be funny and ironic started a USA, USA, USA chant.
While the chant didn’t last long it did gain traction with a few other attendees of the farewell. Harold and Lorraine Shroggy of Lincoln, Nebraska, out on bail for their part in the Trump inspired coup attempt on January 6th enthusiastically joined Kane in the chant. Marilyn Hovenfoot from Sioux Falls, South Dakota who was brandishing a “Women For Trump,” sign joined in as well, but was greatly disappointed when the chant faded away just like the promise of a border wall or the end of Obama Care or the scourge of Covid 19 which was supposed to magically disappear.
The Trump family: Don Jr, Eric, Ivanka and Jared stood solemnly by their father with dejected faces as their latest grift ended. Kane, however, received a long thankful look from a misty eyed Tiffany Trump for his enthusiasm. Over at the McMuffin table again after the ceremony, Kane signaled for Tiffany to join him and when she did he was ready with half unwrapped sausage McMuffin.
Smiling, she asked , “How did you know I like the sausage McMuffin and not the regular one?”
“A man just knows these things,” Kane responded suavely.
An impish grin remained plastered on Tiffany’s face as Kane explained his support for Biden and his less than stellar numbers as an author. He also said, later in the year he expects a further dip in his popularity when he releases his first ever book of poetry.
“Oh my god, my father will so hate you. Will you call me . . . please?” she asked with a pleading tone.
Kane agreed to call her as long as Tiffany agreed NOT to fall in love with him. After pausing for a moment she promised that she would do her best.
The two are scheduled to talk in the near future.
