WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In his latest legal action, Donald J. Trump has filed a lawsuit to overturn former President Barack Obama's election in 2008.
Throwing out Obama's win seems like a long shot to most legal scholars, who note that the former President won in 2008 by more than nine million votes and racked up three hundred and sixty-five Electoral College votes in a resounding landslide.
Further complicating Trump's case is that his lawsuit refers to no tangible evidence of voter fraud in 2008, other than a cryptic statement that "there were a lot of bad things going on."
Reached at his office at Netflix, Obama seemed unconcerned by the prospect of his 2008 election being overturned. "Look, I'm a TV producer," he said. "I've got scripts to read and rough cuts to watch. I don't have the kind of free time that Donald Trump has."
