Fun

During her estimated $200,000-$300,000 speech yesterday, paid for by the American Camp Association, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton panderingly said that we need “camps for adults” because the U.S.A. has such a “huge fun deficit.” It might have been a joke; it’s hard to tell sometimes with the humorless Mrs. Clinton. We may or may not have a “fun deficit,” but there is definitely no shortage of inanity from the smartest woman in America.

However, the current occupant of the Oval Office is experiencing no fun deficit. He and Michelle have apparently just purchased the $8.9 million estate / compound on Oahu that was used in “Magnum, P.I.” This despite the fact that the First Couple has a net worth of “only” about $3 million–and despite the fact that they haven’t even entered the season of life yet where gullible rubes will fork over $200,000-$300,000 for the privilege of hearing their inanities in person.
