It’s Presidential Jokes Day!

It’s Presidential Jokes Day!

So, with last week’s GOP Debate, we decided that this is the perfect year for Costume Discounters to celebrate National Presidential Jokes Day.

That’s right – Every August 11th marks National Presidential Jokes Day, and with all of the back and forth between Republicans and Democrats trying for the 2016 Presidential Candidacy, we thought that some laughable – and maybe even cringe-worthy – puns would be the best place for us to start.

What do you think about these hilarious Head of State jokes?

Q: What do you get when you cross the president of the United States of America and a chicken?

A: Because he couldn’t lie.

Don’t think that we’re the only party making fun of the presidents! Often times, they poke fun at themselves! Here are some gut-busting (or terrible, depending on your political affiliation) jokes former presidents have told:

I am not worried about the deficit. It is big enough to take care of itself.
– Ronald Reagan

These stories about my intellectual capacity really get under my skin. You know, for a while I even thought my staff believed it. There on my schedule first thing every morning it said, ‘Intelligence Briefing.’
– George W. Bush

‘Many of you know that I got my name, Barack, from my father. What you may not know is Barack is actually Swahili for ‘That One.’ And I got my middle name from somebody who obviously didn’t think I’d ever run for president.
-Barack Obama

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.
– John Adams
