Happy Presidential Joke Day!

Wow... how do you celebrate a day like this when our president himself is a joke?
The day is intended to be a day paying tribute to presidents making jokes, not making jokes about presidents. It started this day in 1984, when then president Ronald Reagan was making his regular Saturday radio address. Just beforehand, he was doing a mic test, thinking that it wasn't live. His joke was as follows:
"My fellow Americans, I am pleased to tell you I just signed legislation which outlaws Russia forever. The bombing begins in five minutes."
Lo and behold, his feed was broadcast live. This is the origin of Presidential Joke day. I wish the impact our current bumbling commander-in-chief is having on the lives of our troops and their families wasn't so grave that we couldn't actually enjoy a good chuckle at his expense.
