It’s November 2023 and the United States has just elected a woman from Alabama as the President of the United States.
A few days after the election, the president-elect called her father in Birmingham and asks, “So, Daddy, I assume you and Mommy will be coming to my inauguration?”
“I don’t think so. It’s such a long drive, your mom isn’t as young as she used to be, we’ll have the dog with us and my arthritis is acting up in my knee.”
“Don’t worry about it, Daddy, I’ll send Air Force One to pick you up and take you back home after the ceremony. A limousine will pick you up and drop you off at your front door,” she said.
“I don’t know. Everybody will be dressed so fancy. What would your mother wear?”
“Oh, Daddy,” she replied, “I’ll make sure Mommy has a wonderful gown, custom-designed by Hervé Pierre.”
“Honey,” her dad complained, “You know we can’t eat those rich foods you and your friends like to eat.”
The president-elect responded, “Don’t worry, Daddy. The entire affair is going to be handled by the best caterer in D.C. I’ll ensure your meals are bland and salt-free.”
So her parents reluctantly agreed and on January 20, 2024 they arrived in Washington DC to see their daughter sworn in as President of the United States.
The parents of the new President are seated in the front row.
The President’s father sees that a Senator from Georgia is sitting next to him and leans over and whispers, “You see that woman up there with her hand on the Bible, becoming President of the United States?”
The Senator whispered in reply, “Yes, sir, I sure do.”
Her father says proudly, “Her brother played football for the University of Alabama. Roll Bama, Roll Tide!”
