St Patrick Vows To Drive Snakes Out Of The White House

St Patrick's Day, St Patrick, President Trump, humor, politics, satire, snakes, Modern PhilosopherForever poised to keep both Irish and American eyes smiling on the holiday that bears his name, St. Patrick held a press conference today outside of the NYC cathedral named after him to make a huge announcement, Modern Philosophers.

“It is my intention to drive the snakes out of the White House just as I drove them out of Ireland,” St. Patrick declared.  “Am I speaking of literal snakes or metaphorical ones?  I suppose we shall see, my friends.  In the meantime, may the sun always shine at your back, may the moon watch over you on sleepless nights, and may the next four years not be the longest of your life!”

After that not so traditional Irish Blessing, St. Patrick stuck around to shake hands, pose for selfies, and record outgoing voicemail messages for the adoring faithful.

While he never came right out and said that he was referring to President Trump and the members of his administration, it was understood that the snakes to which he was referring were of the Republican variety.

How could his message be interpreted any other way?

A quick check with the White House historian revealed that no actual snakes had been reported in the building since the Clinton Presidency.

A call to White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer only produced a high pitched shriek and then some indecipherable yelling before the line went dead.

St. Patrick then gave me a wink, tapped my pint with his, and whispered, “You totally catch what I’m saying here, right?”

He was not clear on the timetable for his quest to rid the White House of snakes, but St. Patrick did state that it would occur sometime after he marched in the parade New York was throwing in his honor tomorrow.

“A little marching in solidarity with the brothers and sister afflicted by the snakes will give me all the inspiration I need to deliver on my promise,” he assured me.  “You have my word that this shall be a St. Patrick’s Day to be remembered.

When asked about St. Patrick’s vow to clean up the White House, President Trump snickered and said that St. Patrick was a great saint who should enjoy his special day and then go back to Ireland to chase Leprechauns where he would feel more at home.

In response to Trump’s comments, St. Patrick merely smiled and bought a round for everyone in the pub.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, my friends!

    Can St. Patrick get rid of the big scary orange snake? Please?

  6. At least snakes make for great material. Remember how boring the white house used to be?

    • Austin says:

      I’ll take boring to insane any day.

      • I’m trying to look at the bright side. Since we can’t change the outcome. We could also try to learn something I suppose. Even really bad stuff can sometimes be a lesson. (Forgive me, I’m learning about positive psychology and power leads and being open to new ideas) and if all else fails, find the funny. That’s my motto. Otherwise what a drag life would be.
