The New Yorker's Borowitz Report wrote before the US elections that British Queen Elizabeth II had offered to restore British rule to the United States.

Queen Elizabeth justified her offer saying it was "in recognition of the desperate situation you now find yourselves in."

"This two-hundred-and-forty-year experiment in self-rule began with the best of intentions, but I think we can all agree that it didn’t end well," she said.

Elizabeth urged Americans to elect her as America's first write-in president. She also assuaged US fears of British Parliament, saying, "Parliament would play no role in this deal..." and offering that If America did not want Prince Charles, "we could go straight to William and those children of his who have mesmerized you so."

The Queen also claimed not to ever have used email, and provided "proof" she had never committed adultery.

The author of the Borowitz Report, Andy Borowitz is a satirist and best-selling author who has written for The New Yorker since 1998. The elitist magazine's editors maintained an extreme anti-Trump position throughout and after the elections, including editor and staff writer David Remnick writing a post-election article titled An American Tragedy.
