Breaking News: Deep in the Amazon headwaters, after 8 years of grueling and dangerous exploring and investigation, intrepid AP reporters ably assisted by the NYT have discovered a tribe that has not given money to the Clintons. After an intense 11 seconds of interrogation and the symbolic exchange of latte it was determined only one tribe member had even heard of Hillary Clinton, but unfortunately because of hut and financial difficulties he hurled himself into a pool of ferocious piranha’s and was devoured on the spot just hours before his scheduled interview. Faced with this unexpected disappointment our intrepid news team immediately sprang into action and produced an in depth exposure entitled “Micro-aggressions on the upper Orinoco” shining a spotlight on the abuse of tapirs and three toed sloths triggered by climate change.
