WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles) – Still feeling overwhelmed by the 25 standing ovations received by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu during his speech before the joint session of congress, House Speaker John Boehner announced today that he was sponsoring a bill that would re-design the flag of the United States. It was Boehner who invited Netanyahu without informing the Office of the President.
“It is clear that my Republican colleagues have a higher respect for Netanyahu than for President Obama,” Boehner said, ” so I think it is only appropriate that as a country, we adopt a new flag design that is in keeping with our admiration for Israel and its charismatic leader.”
“I really like the blue and white design of the Israeli flag over our traditional red, white and blue stars and stripes, he added, “so I am proposing that we adopt the Star of David design,” Boehner added. “Besides, a single star would symbolize unity among the American people.”
