With public furor growing that President Trump and his family have been cozying up to the Russians too often and too eagerly, the White House is reviewing or canceling a number of scheduled activities that seem to promote Russian interests over those of the United States.
Here is a list of those events or activities and their current status:
RUSSIAN STOCK PICKER’S CLUB: Permanently canceled. Formerly held monthly in the Oval Office, hosted by the president.
MELANIA’S BOLSHOI BALLET APPRECIATION CLUB: Temporarily disbanded. Trip to NYC with the First Lady to see the Bolshoi Ballet’s Swan Lake performance in December is, regrettably, cancelled.
KREMLIN KARAOKE NIGHTS: Postponed until further notice. Please stay current on new music by Dima Bilan, Oksana Pochepa, Anna Shurochkina, and Zemfira.
IVANKA TRUMP’S VODKA TASTING NIGHTS: Relocated. Now meets Wednesdays, quietly, at 2650 Wisconsin Ave NW (Russian Embassy).
ARCHITECTURE OF RED SQUARE LECTURE SERIES. On hold. Photo exhibition of Red Square, Cathedrals of St. Sophia and St. Petersburg, and the Hermitage still on display in the East Sitting Hall. Please check events calendar at whitehouse.org in January 2018 for update on recommencement of lecture series.
DONALD TRUMP JR.’S RUSSIAN STURGEON FISHING EXPEDITION: Canceled. Please note, in place of the Caspian Sea adventure, a weekend trout fishing trip to a Western red state is currently being planned. Contact Donald Jr. via WikiLeaks for an update and itinerary.
SKYPE Q & A WITH VLADIMIR PUTIN: Permanently canceled. And if anyone asks (ie. Congressional investigators, Mueller’s office, The Washington Post) this was never on the schedule.
INVESTING IN SIBERIAN REAL ESTATE —WEEKEND WORKSHOP: Relocated. Will meet weekend of December 9–10 at the home of Jared Kushner, not in the White House Map Room as previously announced.
KELLYANNE CONWAY’S MATRYOSHKA DOLL COLLECTION: Relegated to White House basement. Receive pass from North Entrance security desk. Bring flashlight.
“BORSCHT, BEETROOT, AND BEEF STROGANOFF” WEEKLY COOKING CLASS: Rescheduled. Barring interference from Mueller investigation, class will commence in February 2018.
