Limerick Ode To Donald Birther Trump

Limerick Ode To Donald Birther Trump
By Madeleine Begun Kane

I once met a man, Donald Trump,
In my lawyering days — what a lump!
This was long, long ago —
Way before his big show.
He’s no brighter while out on the stump.

Author’s Note: Yes, I really did encounter Donald Trump decades ago, early in my legal career. And no, I don’t really believe Trump will run for U.S. president. But he’s certainly on the stump … for publicity. And if you want to read about Trump’s increasingly malevolent dive into Birther-politics here’s the latest from Political Wire.

    The only party that is desperate are the Republicans, but its to “kill the middle class”, they will lose!

    Let me just say that Trump may just be “rattling the Birthers cages”, he can run or he may have grown accustomed to media attention this non-issue would create.

    Our current President travelled under a USA passport long before he was elected President, but I guess the quacky BIRTHERS, must believe that the USCIS – United States Passport was in on the lie, please, grow up, you are wrong!

    The Birthers just HATE and can’t debate!
    Have any of the quacky BIRTHERS presented any credible proof that will standup in court? Answer: No
    Have any of the quacky BIRTHERS won any Court Cases? Answer: No
    They are just mainly backward, uneducated, white people who HATE our half black President.

    The majority of the voting public ask “where the proof”, show some proof BIRTHERS or the voting majority will continue to see you as dumb, stupid or racist, maybe all three. Can you blame them?

    Still, I really hope one of these retreads and blowhards runs for president, not because they have a chance of winning but because I like to see the train wreck that they will cause.

    There once was a man named Trump
    Who wanted to be Prez, and hit the stump
    His platform was a hit
    Solely filled with ‘birther’ bullshit
    And on the unsuspecting public, he just took a big dump.

    So essentially, he’s saying he knows from experience how to be a fraud.

  4. Linda Motley says:

    You know, with as many times as Trump has filed for bankruptcy, in some insane form of logic (or illogic) he might make a good president. Scary, scary thought, but I wouldn’t put it past todays terribly uninformed voters.

  5. madkane says:

    Montana, I’m inclined to agree with you and enjoyed your comment.

    Hansi, fun limerick.

    Allison, precisely.

    Linda, apparently nothing disqualifies a Republican from running for President. Well … perhaps murder. :)

  6. Sienna says:

    There once was a mogul so needy
    For TV attention so greedy
    He made up a story
    Of birtherist glory
    Which made him appear merely seedy.

  7. howard says:




    either slogan will do
