    Ivanna Trump said she was the First Lady Trump,
    Melainia says she doesn't think so.
    We agree.

    Get Well Cards from Donald J. Trump

    To some sick guy,
    So you broke your spine. Big deal! You know what's worse? Bone spurs. Very, very painful.
    Trump

    To some coma victim guy,
    You're in the ICU with tubes coming out of you -- many, many tubes. Well, the hospital won't be able to take care of you forever.
    Trump

    To some recovering from surgery guy,
    Heard you had Liddle' Intestine removed. I don't even have one of those losers. I have two huge intestines.
    Trump

    To some terminal guy,
    Your tests came back very bad. Sounds like your #failinglungs won't be breathing much longer. I guess when you chain smoked for thirty years you knew what you signed up for. Still it must hurt (I guess).
    Trump

    To some acting very sick guy,
    I think you're just faking being sick to make me look bad for not writing sooner. You're a disgrace.
    Trump

    To some throwing up guy,
    Heard you're projectile vomiting. Disgusting. Here, some paper towels.
    Trump

    I don't read Chinese so I'll just take the WaPo's word for it on this one.
    Given that the Borowitz article is clearly labeled "satire," I see no problem with it. Articles in "The Onion" should not require such a label, since the entire publication is satire, and all published articles are sourced to their own site.

    I just think it's revealing that an editor in China saw the headline "Trump orders all phones covered in tinfoil" and thought "that sounds about right". It just blended in with all the batshit stuff he has said and done so that it didnt even stand out as odd enough to double check.

    It falls under Poe's Law:

    "2. Poe’s Law
    Not to be confused with the law of poetry enshrined by Edgar Allan Poe, the internet Poe’s Law states: “Without a winking smiley or other blatant display of humour, it is impossible to create a parody of fundamentalism that someone won't mistake for the real thing.”
