A Miracle In NYC

Nearly 8 years after a terrible wreck left a man unable to communicate, his power of speech has returned. George Bush was 62 when the mainstream media derailed his presidency, which resulted in him and his entire administration going off a cliff and tumbling to the ground.

 

“For eight long years he didn’t speak a word “, said George’s brother, Jeb Bush. Though his family continued to talk to him, they had no idea whether he understood them. That eased a few days ago, when he began responding to questions with grunts and by blinking his eyes.

On a doctor’s advice, the family had tried art therapy, giving George paints and canvases. He started to paint, which allowed him to communicate with the world, even if non-verbally.

To everyone’s amazement, those were mostly pictures of dogs and cats, which made some wonder if George had anything meaningful to say even if he could communicate verbally. It didn’t help that George developed a liking for sniffing the paint thinner.

But in October this year George made a major advance. When Jeb walked into his room to sniff some of George’s paint thinner, George suddenly said his first word in eight years: “Trump!” According to Jeb, that took them both by surprise. “You could tell by the look on his face, his eyes were kind of big,” said Jeb.

Later that day George added “asshole” to his vocabulary. “He would not have talked dirty before he wrecked,” his mother Barbara said. The next day, when asked what other words he could say, George answered, “I can say anything.”

That was when, on October 19, the family took George to New York and asked him to read somethingbefore an audience. George showed a remarkable ability to read from the teleprompter, which sent the entire American media reeling with excitement. It was a speech written by one of George’s former speechwriters who had survived the 2008 crash with a minor scratch. The speech was broadcast on all major networks and became an international sensation in medical circles.

According to some neurologists, however, what George may be experiencing is a disorder known as selective mutism. “It is an anxiety disorder when a person who is normally capable of speech cannot speak in specific situations or to specific people,” said an insider who wished to remain anonymous.

“People with selective mutism stay silent even when the consequences of their silence include shame, social ostracism, or even punishment. This was obvious several years before the crash, when George lived in the White House and remained mute when his voters and supporters wanted him to speak up,” he said.

Some researchers speculate that selective mutism may be an avoidance strategy used by a subgroup of politicians with social anxiety disorder to reduce their distress in difficult situations that they do not fully understand. At the same time they display other communicative behaviors, such as hand clapping, waving, or hugging babies.

“Time will tell whether George’s eight-year-long muteness was caused by brain trauma or it was a strategy to avoid a situation where he was in over his head,” the source said.

Though George’s speech remains slow and labored, he loves to talk and his mother is very proud of him.

    ROTFL! Funny and apt!

    Wonderful. Hugged by a tranny. How appropriate.

    I used to like GWB, not because he was a great leader. Mostly because he wasn’t Al Gore or John Kerry. Plus he seemed like a decent guy. That’s all gone now.

    The only thing I would say to George now if i could is “STFU, you are a pussy, where were you for the last 8 years… which nation were you president of?”

    • Terry says:

      Same here Nox. I’ve always had respect for him as a person, as I believed him to be honest (in a D.C. kind of way) but ever since The Donald whaled on his bubby Low Energy Jeb, W. has turned into a real asswipe.

    • Deserttrek says:

      Agree

      Better he had stayed quiet

  3. Hardnox says:

    Btw, this post is funny. 🙂

  4. clyde says:

    Excellent post Terry. As for GWB, HE can join the rest of clan, and STFU. Go back to mutism, please.

  5. Jules Smith says:

    I met George in Texas. I believe it was in Walmart if I remember, on the beer aisle where he was buying some ale for a ranch party. Beer in Texas can render afflict a person with selective mutism; I know this to be true as I have experienced it myself.

  6. Jules Smith says:

    I missed the forward slash (and/or) between render and afflict. I feel it is imperative I point this out lest you might think me suffering from a disorder known as selective retarded-ness.

    • Terry says:

      Thank you for explaining that Jules. I was just searching my ‘British to English Translator ‘ app for the meaning of “render afflict”. It sounded pretty serious.

      As for the beer, don’t tell me you actually found some of that Emu Beer the Texan booze stocker told you about ?
      But you couldn’t find any emu steaks ? Go figure….

      • Hardnox says:

        Texans probably can’t discern the difference between emus and chickens anyway considering they think everything in Texas has got to be BIG. More than likely emus are everywhere in Texas.

        • Terry says:

          …and apparently, Brits can’t tell the difference between ‘Beef’ steaks and armadillo steaks. Bwahahahah…..

        • Popular Front says:

          Gotcha! There IS such a thing as Emu Beer, it is one of Western Australia’s favourites and called Emu Export Lager. Tasty and gets you pissed, the only two requirements for Australian beer. Try some today!

          • Terry says:

            Well Crikey ! I somehow missed that in my travels there.
            Pity. I could probably have used it to get rid of the aftertaste of the XXXX swill LOL

            • Popular Front says:

              You know why they call it XXXX Terry? Because Queenslanders are too dumb to spell ‘beer’.

        • Popular Front says:

          Old Australian curse: “May your chickens turn into Emus and kick your shithouse down!”

    Now Terry… that is frikkin’ FUNNY!
    I truly liked President Bush XLIII but he should’ve kept to his post presidential policy. Now he has revealed his true RINO characteristic.
    I am sad.
    It was frikkin’ funny but I am still sad.

    • Terry says:

      Same here Cap’n……and I’m sad too.
      I would rather believe his ‘Trump-hate’ derived from a head injury in the car crash, than from his own heart.

  8. whitetop says:

    I seem to recall W speaking out about not supporting Trump for president during the election. Sounds like another DC CYA. I also liked W because he wasn’t algorzeninski or John, I served in Viet Nam Kerry. H was good to the military; something we hadn’t seen in 8 years.

    • captbogus2 says:

      You’re right. He was good to the military. Possibly now his only saving grace.

    • Terry says:

      Neither W. nor H.W. endorsed or campaigned for Trump.
      W. stated he did not vote for Trump (or Hillary).
      That should teach Trump not to be mean to little brudder Jeb.
