Who Did It?

        Ma’s fingers shook as she dialed 911. “Send an ambulance to 510 Clay Street,” she pled in a hurried whisper. “My husband just fell down the stairs. He’s eighty-eight.”
        “She pushed me!” Pa shouted. He sat on the bottom step holding a towel to his forehead.
        “Is he bleeding?” the dispatcher asked.
        “He cut his head, but no bones are broken.  He was unconscious when I found him”
        Pa shouted louder. “She pushed me!”
        “Who pushed him?”
        Ma covered the phone. “Hush, Ernie. He heard you.”
        “So what? I’ll tell the whole world.  Hillary Clinton pushed me down the stairs!”
