Comment following Guardian article | “A plane was about to crash, there were four passengers on the plane: Lebron James, President Donald Trump, the Pope, a small boy and only three parachutes. Lebron said ‘i am the greatest basketball player in the NBA , the Lakers and my millions of fans need me’ so he took 1st pack and leaped from the plane. Donald Trump then said ‘I am the President of the United States, i am the smartest President in American History, the Republicans and those who voted for me don’t want me to die’ so he grabbed a pack and leaped from the plane. the Pope looked at the boy and said, ‘my son, take the third pack , i am old and not many years left, you are young with many years ahead of you, take the last parachute’ the little boy smiled and replied ‘its ok your holiness, there is a parachute for both of us, America’s smartest president took my school bag’” – The Guardian
