Ex-Cowboys coach pulls off Trump Tower ruse

Anything seems plausible in a post-election America. That includes former Cowboys coach Barry Switzer having an official position in the Trump administration.

So consider it no surprise that people believed what Switzer had to say when asked why he recently found himself inside the President elect's home and headquarters.

"All the media people said, 'Coach what are you doing here,'" Switzer said, via Politico.com. "I told them I was here to see the president like everyone else."

"I told the reporters I had a great visit, and that we were going to make the wishbone great again," he said. "I told them I was going to be Secretary of Offense and that Trump knew how to run the ball down the field.

"Then I went back to my hotel and laughed my ass off. It went everywhere. Everyone believed it. I had all these calls, but I was just jerking people around."

This is so funny I feel like crying.
