Queen Elizabeth: “Well, the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people.”
President Obama, while frowning: “But how do I know if the people around me are really intelligent?”
Queen Elizabeth, while sipping of champagne: “Oh, that’s easy; you just ask them to answer an intelligent riddle, watch.”
The Queen pushed a button on her intercom: “Please send Tony Blair in here, would you?”
Tony Blair walked into the room and said, “Yes, your Majesty?"
The Queen smiled and said: “Answer me this please, Tony. Your mother and father have a child. It is not your brother, and it is not your sister. Who is it?”
Without pausing for a moment, Tony Blair answered: ”That would be me.”
“Yes! Very good.” said the Queen.
President Obama went back home to ask Joe Biden the same question.
“Joe, answer this for me. Your mother and your father have a child. It’s not your brother and it’s not your sister. Who is it?"
The Vice President asked Hillary Clinton and all of his advisers, but none could give him an answer.
Frustrated, Biden went off for lunch at Trump Towers a day or so later and was greeted politely by Trump.
Biden asked, “Hey, Donald, see if you can answer this question. Your mother and father have a child, and it’s not your brother or your sister. Who is it?”
Trump answered: “That’s easy; it’s me!”
Biden smiled, and said: “Good answer, Donald!”
“Say, I did some research, and I have the answer to that riddle. “It’s Donald Trump!”
Obama got up, stomped over to Biden, and angrily yelled into his face, “NO, you idiot! It’s Tony Blair!”
