Day of Possible Infamy

December Seventh, 1941 “A Day That Will Live in Infamy.”

Naval Intelligence claims Pearl Harbor attacked by Japanese.

The President is dismissive.
“Could’ve been Japanese, could’ve been other people. Could be a 400 pound Guatemalan who came across the boarder from Mexico. Nobody knows, folks, nobody knows.”

“We know somebody bombed our ships,” said Hamilton Fish, Republican leader of Congress and prominent Isolationist. “But did they actually sink them? We have no proof. “Could be, they just sank themselves when the tide came up.”

The president’a sons Kermit and Franklin Junior denied meeting with the Japanese envoy at a sushi joint in downtown Bethesda
“If we had met him, which we didn’t, we definitely didn’t talk about our hotels in Tokyo, Kyoto and Nagasaki. We just asked him, if it was possible, when they break our naval code, for them to just sort of give us the intercepts, to use against Clare Booth Luce, that’s all. Oh, and could we shoot some of their endangered white tigers?”

Fritz Kuhn, the president’s adviser and, former leader of the German American Bund denied connection to a congressional fifth column of isolationists working with the Nazis.
“We have nothing to do with Republican Isolationists who, like us, are working to destroy American democracy from within. They’re just using all our efforts for their own purposes; preventing universal healthcare, destroying the New Deal, isolating America, and connecting with other right-wing mafias. They’re doing all this like it was just their own ideas and not even giving us credit for helping them. They have no integrity. It just makes me sick. We’re both on the same side, here, folks. There’s no use denying it. They’re just trying to escape the consequences of their actions by pretending, you know, that they’re really, really dumb.

Harry Hopkins, son in law and foreign advisor, broke in…
“It’s not treason, just a misunderstanding. We acknowledge that there is a race war, a clash of civilizations that will determine who rules the world, and the American people, the white ones, that is, should not have let the previous administration take back our Nazi summer camps in New Jersey and Long Island. We must lift the sanctions on war materials shipping to Germany. And cut out that Lend Lease stuff and those old destroyers. Oh, and I’ll be attending their rally in Madison Square Garden. it’s a fun time! Lots of banners and marching around.

Said FDR, “I know Tojo. We were on a radio broadcast together and we’re good pals, although I never met him.”

Previous Republican President Hoover said, I met Herr Hitler.  I looked into his soul, and it’s pretty dark in there, but trust me you can trust him. I know I do. And I’m not stupid,” he added.

See, that’s all you need to know about Hitler, added Neville Chamberlain, “We have peace in our time, a piece of France, a piece of the Sudetenland, practically all of Poland…”

The President was pressed at his Roosevelt Island Resort.
“So I had dealings in Tokyo? There were some geishas of course and nobody has better geishas than me. Nobody has more beautiful geishas, except they have tiny tits, so they can’t be tens, maybe six and a halfs… so I grab some of them by the whoo haas, I just walked up and stuck my tongue right down their throats to their uvulas… You can do that if you’re famous like me. The golden showers I don’t think I did that. They don’t have pictures of that, do they. Those guys are always taking pictures. You can’t get them away from our naval installations. they’re just fascinated by big ships, do you think?”

Press Secretary, Sean Joe Goebbels, speaking from the Presidential Yacht, “Wow-I’m-Rich!” in the Roosevelt River, (previously the Potomac), corrected that.
“Whatever he said he meant when he said it. It’s just not operational now. You have to pay attention to something as soon as he says it. It’s only fact for about 10 seconds or so, then another reality kicks in.”

Reacting to a question from Haley Colingwood, he added…
“It’s not true he can’t walk. He could walk if he wanted to. He just doesn’t want to. He wants to swim, and if he’s not near water he can’t swim, can he? So that chair is just there to get him to water and we’re tired of the fake news about that, so I’m not gonna talk to you again. That’s right. I don’t have to talk to you.
An’ don’t take my picture, neither.”

In response to the lying press pressing on the fake news of an attack, the President said again, “Never happened and as far as Pearl Harbor there’s a lot of smoke but no proof, no smoking gun. Some smoking ships, of course, but no gun. You can’t find a gun. I’ve sent people to Hawaii, they haven’t found a gun. They haven’t found a birth certificate, neither. So, no gun, no foul. Lets move on to my Championship Golf course, my steaks and my Roosevelt Institute of Higher Book Learnin’ and Success, Trademark, Copyright Roosevelt Empire, 1941.”
He, waved his arms around a lot, made that circle thing with his fingers and continued.
“Why there aren’t any Japs for miles and miles, just ask Nimitz about that. Everybody knows that my Navy is the best navy in the world. Nobody has a better Navy than me. And I know more about water than all the Admirals combined. I drink lots of it.
No, folks, our Navy is the best. It’s just sailing the wrong way.

European leaders are aghast. Winston Churchill said, “Looks like we can’t count on the Americans anymore, folks. Looks like we’ll have to find those sunlit uplands on our own.”

The President was tweeting now, something that won’t be invented for seventy years. But he was on a Fireside Chat on the radio.
“Golden showers, naw, that’s just like a Shinto thing. Beautiful geishas pissing on my head for the glory of their ancestors. A sign of their great respect for me, don’t you think?”
I mean that’s what they do there, they just drink and drink and then just open their stomachs for fun. I mean you party with them they stay up all night, things tend to get a little weird. You don’t suppose they have pictures do you?”

Elinor remarked at the Hyde Park White House, Championship Golf Course and Rehab Resort. “It’s costing New York millions to protect us from him. But its worth it.
I’m still pissed the secret intelligence service assigned me to him. Should’a been Franco or Stalin, you know, somebody with class. What kind of a honey trap is this? He’s a moron. They could’a used that girl from Monkey Business, one or two of his secretaries or that Marla person, again.
He’s very rich so I just don’t listen. I just like to stand there and glare at him. But, as long as he keeps me in bling and lesbian girlfriends I don’t give a damn, neither should you.”

He was chatting again:
Warm Springs Resort and Waterslide is doing gangbusters.
Of course some of the guests have to be recovered from the bottom of the pool. Polo is a terrible thing. But occupancy has doubled since we took office and you should really try the chocolate cake. It’s just the best. Oh, and Walter Winchell, overrated, from the failing New York Post. He sucks. And, I’m not packing the court, but there’s some Spanish type people in there. Very Unfair. Sad.

And future Bridge Troll J. Edgar Hoover took over the Office of President while FDR was busy chatting away:
“We asked the court to reconsider the ban on Jewish refugees. “They could be spies undermining our Christian-valued nation. They could be Terrorists, look at the Stern Gang. That Issac’s a Bastard. I’ve got a file on him.
They’re doing just fine in those refugee camps, so those are false reports from the international Jewry press. They’re getting showers, they’re hard to keep clean, those Jews, they’re not like us. The Trains run on time, thanks to Hitler and Musso, and they have big ovens, big things to keep them warm in the winters, so you know we don’t need to let more of them in. They’re doing just fine.

He said “Make America Hate Again.”, said Martha Gellhorn speaking from the Winter Press Room, outside of Owlfart Saskatchewan.
Kelly Ann Goebbels demurred.
“Didn’t say hate”,
“Sure he did.”
“Slip of the tongue, then. Or brain.”
“So, he did say it?”
“Did. We have it on film.”
“Did. Did, Did, Didn’t Did!”
“Those of you, wanting the actual truth, you better watch your step.” Kelly said, gnawing on her riding crop and snapping it across her boot.
“Is that a threat?”
“No, it’s minus twelve out there. And I’ll yank your credentials so fast… Now, next question… you there, Hans from Der Sturmer.”
Rinehart Previous, Chief Staff Denier, concurred.
“He said great. You just heard hate, cause you hate us. But we hate you right back double. We’re going to repeal and replace all of you by the way, repeal with extreme prejudice.”

So, the fake news was busy lying, …something about a Great World War, in China and Russia, and Europe and things. In North Africa and the Mediterranean, and the North and South Atlantic. But the Pres. was pretty confused about where all those places were. And if it would hurt his hotel business. Before leaving for golf, he chatted again.
“Reports that American citizens have been rounded up and placed in concentration camps are untrue fake news,” he typed with his very small fingers, They are undocumented illegals or look just like they would if they were. They snuck into the country illegally across the failing and misnamed Pacific Ocean, because I’ve been there and threw up. Very Sad.
So, we’re going to put a big wall up to stop that, and the ocean. A big wall, the greatest wall ever. Nobody builds a Great Wall greater than my Great Wall. Chinese hoax to make American Wall builders non-competitive, folks, believe me. Forget God, forget global warming. I alone can do it. Around the seashore. All around America. And Guam is going to pay for it.
