Fireworks might be right. Trump will become President of a bitterly divided nation. Still, the incoming Commander in Chief found room for some humour at a campaign donors' dinner, offering this joke about the rainy weather forecast on his big day. If it really pours, that's OK, because people will realise it is my real hair and that is OK. It's OK.

Owner Natalya Palladicheva, who opened the restaurant two years ago, named it Trump after the English word that means a high-ranking hand of cards. She didn't like the sound of the Russian equivalent. Burdened with the association, Palladicheva after the November election introduced a Donald Trump menu, which features an 18-centimeter (7-inch) -high hamburger. It's a joke of course, Palladicheva explained while attending the pre-inauguration party at the jazz club. We all want relations between Russia and American to improve, particularly for Russia. At the table across from her, two middle-aged men, dressed in black and wearing cargo pants, were eating burgers with Bologna sausage. One of them, a personal trainer from California, called it a Trump burger. There's nothing to be afraid of in Russia, said Jim Barcena, who has been coming to Russia to train professional boxers since 2009.

And Trump can do that? Well, it remains to be seen, but at least he's talking about it. The neat take on Donald Trump is that critics took him literally but not seriously, and supporters took him seriously but not literally. They didn't necessarily believe everything he said, but he was talking and listening to them. Which is why in working-class communities expectations are so high that he will create manufacturing jobs and reverse industrial decline. We joke about the magic switch.

When Stephen Stepanek, a former New Hampshire state lawmaker and Republican power broker in the critical early primary state, professed his support for Donald Trump in early 2015, a friend in politics sent him a card gently urging him to see a psychiatrist. Today, Stepanek is enjoying a complete ticket package that gives him access to the inaugural ball, the concert at the Lincoln Memorial, the inaugural parade, and a room at the luxury Fairmont Hotel in Georgetown—all the better to soak in a celebration that proves his skeptics wrong. He’s one of a small group of loyalists—some joke they should be called “the Mean 15”—who were with Trump on the basement floor of his bare-bones campaign, enamored by the businessman from day one. “I was there before there were any factions,” Stepanek said in an interview, alluding to the power centers that have emerged under incoming chief of staff Reince Priebus and senior strategist Steve Bannon, both of whom signed on with Trump after he clinched the nomination.

This is fantastic, we can now take the moral high ground about Nazis. Weirs, it was fraudulent, it was fake offendedness -- Piers. Of course. Nobody actually was wounded by this joke. APPLAUSE. . Here is what I think about Boris and what I thought about Theresa May this week as well.

Piers Morgan? I love Boris. He's a character, he's bright, much brighter than he suggests by some things he says. He made a joke about the valed threats coming out of the European Union about how they were going to punish us. It was immediately, as all jokes are in this PC-crazed world that we now have to endure, it immediately became a sickening Nazi taunt at Europe which, of course, the Europeans couldn't believe their luck.

Driving in London often means going nowhere. What's traffic like in London? It's a joke. Terrible. Absolutely terrible. How difficult is it driving in London every day? Very difficult, but I got to go! The problem isn't just about traffic for motorists. It is about air pollution. That affects everyone. On this road in Brixton, it breached its annual air pollution limit in the first five days of this year.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (D., Ohio) threw a fit during a Senate committee hearing on Thursday over a joke by Sen. Pat Roberts (R., Kan.). After another senator had questioned Steve Mnuchin, President-elect Donald Trump's nominee to be the secretary of the treasury, Roberts cracked the joke, which prompted a quick and angry response from Brown. The hearing was part of the confirmation process for Mnuchin in the Senate. I've got a valium pill here that you might want to take before the second round, Roberts joked. I can't quite believe that he would say that to a distinguished senator from Oregon, Brown said. I've said that to the president of the United States, Roberts replied. Brown continued to talk angrily at Roberts as the committee chairman tried to restore order. It was Roberts' turn to ask questions. I think just a little pin prick of humor might help this committee, Roberts said.

When your bestie is trying to joke with you, but come on, youre at work! When your bestie coordinates outfits with you ahead of time. When you stick with water and offer to be your besties designated driver for the night, because he needs to unwind after a tough week. When your bestie stares down the folks whove been giving you a hard time. Because only you get to give him a hard time about stuff. Like remember when he wanted to have a custom handshake? Yeah, that was real smooth. But you appreciate him, not just for the stuff that everyone sees. You cherish those private moments, too. Sure, youve had disagreements. And out of respect for your bestie, you hit up the club without letting your friends know youve got a beef. But you know what? After a few drinks, you talk and realize just how much you care about one another.

“It makes no sense that we would encourage hedge fund managers to set up entities in the Cayman Islands. … In the hedge fund world these are all just set up to make the accountants rich,” Mnuchin said. Stabenow asked if Mnuchin would “support closing those loopholes.” “I would support changing the tax laws to make sure that they’re simpler and more effective, yes,” Mnuchin said. Drug joke: Before Mnuchin even had a chance to give his opening comments, the hearing spiraled into discord after Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) said he had “a Valium pill” for Wyden. Brown, an Ohio Democrat, said he couldnt believe he made the comment and that the joke shouldnt set the tone for the new session of Congress. The senators started talking over each other and Chairman Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) tried to gavel the hearing to order. “Just a little pin prick of humor might help this committee from time to time,” Roberts said.

In a meeting earlier this month, Ma told Trump his online trading company could help deliver a million jobs to the US, a bold commitment the Chinese businessman staunchly defended in Davos. "I'm not talking to a normal person, I'm talking to the president-elect about the creation of jobs... This couldn't be a joke," he said. Chummier relations with the US will be a priority for Ma. In December, Washington put a division of Alibaba back on a blacklist of "notorious markets" known for selling counterfeit goods and violating intellectual property rights. "Things like fake products, counterfeit, we've been fighting for 17 years, since the day we set up," Ma said. "We have 2,000 people devoted to the problem, the largest counterfeit-fighting team in the world." - 'Die on the beaches' - Quick with a smile or jokey quip, the former English teacher was at ease before the elites gathered in Davos.
