President Elect Trump has reportedly spoken to King Salman of Saudi Arabia to seek his advice on how the transition team should handle staffing the incoming administration.

A spokesman for Trump commented, “President Elect Trump had a very productive call with the King, it certainly opened his eyes to some radically new ways to go about things in 2017.”

He continued, “Appointing family members to positions of power is really a much more common practice than some might think. We recognise that we have a nepotism law in this country. But bear in mind that’s only on the books because of Kennedy. And frankly, we don’t have much truck with Democrat presidents that can’t keep it in their pants. Can I get an amen?”

“The Saudi government also doesn’t seem to have many Jews in it, so you can imagine Steve Bannon is super psyched by that. Mr. Trump finished his call by inviting the King to visit him in Washington any time, just so long as he didn’t mind filling in a bunch of forms first and pledging allegiance to the flag. We think there was a problem with the phone connection around then because we seem to have got cut off…”
