    Queen Elizabeth Says Bone Spurs Will Prevent Her from Meeting Trump

    https://www.newyorker.com/humor/boro...ocial_facebook

    LONDON (The Borowitz Report)—Queen Elizabeth II has cancelled a scheduled Friday meeting with Donald J. Trump after complaining of a “flare-up of bone spurs,” Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

    The announcement took many royal watchers by surprise, because in her sixty-six-year reign the Queen had never before complained of bone spurs.

    But, according to the Queen’s spokesman, Peter Rhys-Willington, Elizabeth had intentionally kept her chronic bone-spur condition a closely guarded secret until now. “Her Majesty is a very brave woman, and has not wanted to unnecessarily worry her subjects,” Rhys-Willington said. “And so, for decades, she has suffered in silence.”

    She's missed quite a few appointments recently due to this problem.

    Lol, while I would not doubt the veracity of that report; I would suggest that in sixty-six years of her reign, she has not been faced with the prospect of meeting someone like President Trump. Her Majesty is nothing if not diplomatic.

    I think they already vetoed that! The Queen says it is darn uncomfortable. If you noticed Harry and Meghan changed to a Sports car as soon as they could.
