CIA Plotting Overthrow of Trump?

Funny story written by Ralph E. Shaffer

Tuesday, 21 August 2018

Anonymous and usually unreliable sources in the intelligence community, who are on rare occasion somewhat right, have told The Spoof that high ranking officials in the Central Intelligence Agency have a contingency plan to replace President Donald J. Trump in a bloodless coup.

Sparked by the president's unbelievably erratic and dangerous behavior on revocation of security clearances, and fearful of losing theirs and the snobbery that goes with a clearance, a cabal of six former CIA directors hatched the plot over beer and a Shakey's pizza. In a nutshell, the coup would take place during a presidential visit to Kazakhstan, ostensibly to observe liftoff of a supply mission to the International Space Station. Trump would be held incommunicado until Vice President Mike Pence is securely in office via the 25th amendment.

"We've waited patiently - more than patiently - for congress to act under the impeachment process. The country can't wait any longer. We're asserting our constitutional, first amendment right to a coup," one of the former CIA directors reportedly said.

The next space supply mission is scheduled for early September.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
