WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reacting to a photo of Boris Johnson on a muted TV this morning showing, President Donald Trump called to congratulate actor Gary Busey on becoming Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
“I called him up to say that I think he’ll do a tremendous job,” said the President to reporters outside the White House adding that he loved him in that movie about the kid who broke his arm and then becomes a Major League Baseball pitcher. “I think he’s the right man for the job of [sic] breakfast. And we’ll see what happens if there’s a deal or not. Personally, I could make the deal happen but it’s not my country and I’ll tell you something if it were, I would.”
Sources say Busey, 75, thanked the President and said he was just as excited about getting started, having seen the same picture of what appeared to be himself on the news, and immediately launching into celebrations.
“I have so many great ideas,” said Busey about leading the United Kingdom during its exit from the European Union. “I think we should just give everyone a paddle and they can all start paddling away and that way England will be away from Europe,” the actor continued, adding that he’s already talked to the Queen about the idea and she’s on board and has purchased her own jewel encrusted royal paddle to help.
Sources inside Buckingham palace could not immediately be reached for comment.
At press time, Trump denied allegations that he fired Gary Busey on season 4 of Celebrity Apprentice.
