Three Parachutes

An airplane was about to crash.  There were four passengers on board, but only three parachutes.

Parachute Pack

The first passenger said, "I am Steph Curry, the best NBA basketball player.  The Warriors and my millions of fans need me, and I can’t afford to die."  So he grabbed the first pack and left the plane.

The second passenger, Donald Trump, said, "I am the President of the United States, and I am the smartest President in American history, so my people don’t want me to die." He took the second pack and jumped out of the plane.

The third passenger, an elderly priest, said to the fourth passenger, a ten year old schoolboy, "My son, I am old and don’t have many years left, you are young, and have many more years ahead.  So I will let you have the last parachute."

The little boy said, "That’s okay, Father, there’s a parachute left for you.  America’s smartest President took my backpack."
