Trump White House Fires Remaining Members Of Advisory HIV/AIDS Council, Seeks New Applicants

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – On the eve of the eve of New Year’s eve, President Donald Trump fired all the remaining members of the Presidential Council on HIV/AIDS, months after about half a dozen members resigned in protest of Trump’s position on health poilicies.

At the same time, The White House announced that applications to fill the vacant seats are now being accepted, with very strict qualifications for those wanting to serve in the council.

Among other things, applicants must pledge, as part of their cover letter, that they will never ever use these seven “banned” words in line with Trump’s overall health policy:

  • Transgender
  • Science-based
  • Evidence-based
  • Fetus
  • Entitlement
  • Vulnerable
  • Diversity

So if you’re interested in a White House Council seat, and ready to erase the seven words from your vocabulary, send your resume to 1600 Pennsylvannia Avenue, Attn: Seven Banned Words.

Wrong Queen Crowned, But Steve Harvey Had Nothing To Do With It

IMG_4079SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – One would think it would never happen again — the wrong pageant winner being crowned.

But it did, just like it happened in the Miss Universe Pageant when host Steve Harvey announced the wrong winner (Miss Colombia instead of Miss Philippines.)

Well, that’s now behind us, and the real winner, Pia Wurtzbach has completed her reign and has passed on the crown to her successor.

In San Francisco, the wrong queen was crowned Miss GAPA (Gay Asian Pacific Alliance) this weekend, but Steve Harvey had nothing to do with it.

Organizers of the popular pageant announced that due to a tabulation error, the crown was awarded to the wrong contestant.

But the organizers decided that the wrong winner can keep the crown, and they’re awarding a second crown to the real winner.  So for 2017, there will be two Miss GAPAs.

It will be recalled that former Miss Universe owner Donald Trump had suggested that both Miss Philippines and Miss Colombia be declared co-winners after that Steve Harvey fiasco, but that didn’t happen.

Hmmm, did Trump have anything to do with the Miss GAPA decision?
