Secretary of State arrested

WASHINGTON (Rooters agency) – After the first nine months of the Ronald Dump Administration, it was only mildly surprising when the Secretary of State Rexxon Pillager was arrested this morning.

Pillager was taken into custody by the Frequently Bungling Inquisitors (FBI), acting on a warrant charging him with violating the Espionage Act, the 1917 law under which the previous Administration prosecuted a number of individuals accused of revealing government secrets.

It is believed that Pillager is accused of revealing classified information by telling a small meeting of State Department and other officials that the President is “a moron.”

Off the record, Dump Administration officials say that the Secretary’s remark, if accurately reported, could make him guilty of giving aid and comfort to the enemy, especially including US voters. They added that it can be an offense to reveal information that is classified even it is already publicly well known.

A friend of Pillager who asked for anonymity said that Pillager denies that he’d called the President “a moron.” The phrase used was actually “a failing moron.”
