#1 They could audit the "personal expenses" of the last five UN Secretary-Generals and would probably find enough corruption to pay for a month or two.

Independent Audit... Now that is a phrase that causes the UN bureaucracy to run screaming away like a vampire shown a holy cross!

#2 I hear Ulan Bator is a lot cheaper than NY.

#3 Hardly makes life worth living in NYC. Well, it's off to Vermont to watch the leaves change into fall colors!

#4 1) Let me do the audit. Please...

2) Will they have enough $ for sternly worded letters?

#5 The top contributor should simply renege. Why must any nation be a 'top contributor' to what is effectively just an unaccountable nuisance to sovereign states tying to run their own shit ?

#6 OK. It's not the Babylon Bee but this is some other satire site, right? Right? I mean, they wouldn't really cancel the cocktail parties, would they? And all those high falutin' diplomats have to buy their own liquor? And what about the girls? Tell me this is satire.

#7 Trump cut off U.N. money and they start to fold. We must have providing most of the money that kept them afloat. Good for our taxpayers that they fold. The U.N. was a tool for the globalists to take power and sovereignty from the U.S. Another good reason to re-elect Trump for doing work for the U.S.

#8 Why are they even physically there in New York? If you ask any of them, GlobalWarmingClimateChangeFossilFuel is the biggest problem humanity faces. Save the Planet, reduce your big-ass air travel carbon footprint, and teleconference. You do have electricity in your countries, don't you?

(if not, you better get some! You're going to need it to run your electric cars)

#9 Not to worry, Biden will be president in 2021 and he'll restore full finding as long as we give Hunter a big fat salary. Or so they keep telling themselves.
