"After much deliberation, consultation, and prayer to Moloch, I have decided that I will seek a second term," she said to a crowd gathered at a local Wendy's restaurant. "I feel I haven't accomplished everything I wanted to in my first term, and I really need a full eight years to implement my final solution to all of America's problems."

"Orange man bad! Orange man bad!" she chanted at one heckler, though the heckler turned out to be a Wendy's worker asking if she wanted the Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger 4 for $4 or the chicken sandwich one.

Aides then gently ushered her back onto the bus to take her back to Bright Sunrise Home For Seniors

Iron Lung got me to laugh! I'm a sucker for an absurd visual prop.

Although the fact that it's from last year is more of a head-scratcher. Hm. Funny in hindsight...?

lol it really is easy to see the lib bias in the onion stories
The bias itself needn't be a big problem, so long as the jokes are funny. That's the problem with the Onion, it's like they are looking for applause rather than laughter. That iron lung one is the only even mildly funny thing I've seen from them in ages. TBH, I thought it was a Babylon Bee post when I first saw it.
