The Borowitz Report: Obama Asks Staff to Start Cc’ing Him on Stuff
In a dramatic departure from existing White House procedures, President Obama requested today that his staff start cc’ing him on stuff.
Look, I know a lot of you think I’m really busy and you don’t want to bother me,” the President reportedly told his staff in an Oval Office meeting. “But cc me anyway. It’s good for me to keep up on what’s going on around here.”

I know considering the severity of the scandals that have come to light in recent months (namely the IRS and the AP phone records), I believe that now is the time that the President know whats going on with his staffers. However, the image that keeps popping up in my mind is President Obama receiving forward messages from his staffers with the the subject line “Back by Popular Demand: $1 Smoothies! (Mon-Fri this week only” from Jamba Juice, or $1 Happy Hour Frappucinos at Starbucks.
I could just see him calling a meeting and being all, “Didn’t I tell y’all to CC me in all emails??? Why didn’t y’all forward me that Starbucks coupon? Did you all go on a Starbucks run this afternoon without me??? You invited Biden? It was Michelle’s idea? Why am I never in the loop??”
