El Prez in Trouble Again

President Washington, this morning two of the networks are carrying reports that at one time you chopped down a cherry tree. How do you react?

Now you listen to me. I was never ever involved in any improper trimming, cutting or removal of any shrubs, greenery or landscaping. Never!

Mr. President, are you saying you chopped down this tree in a proper manner?

I believe what I said speaks for itself.

Sir, with all due respect, it's confusing.

Let me just say this. The American people are entitled to hear about what's up with the cherry tree. But not now. Later. Much Later.

Gen. Washington, reliable sources close to the independent prosecutor insist your ax has DNA on it from the cherry tree in question. Would you care to respond?

Yes. DNA. What's that?

Mr. President, are you on the level?

Hell, you know me! Can not tell a lie and all that good stuff. Go ask Martha.
