McMaster Replaced By Bolton? Words Fail Me! (Limerick)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

When the White House is run by a dolt,
And the adults depart, loons exult.
Now McMaster is leaving —
Get ready for grieving;
He’s a victim of John Bolton’s cult.

Farewell To John Dowd (Limerick)

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

Trump’s lawyers are frequently nayed
And their Mueller advice disobeyed.
Donald’s gut rules his mind,
So John Dowd has resigned.
I wish the man luck getting paid!

Open Limerick To Republicans

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Dear Republicans: Jabber is cheap,
And it won’t force the Donald to keep
Mueller’s Russia probe going.
The danger is growing.
You’re emboldening Trump and his Veep.

Is Donald Doomed? (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

This headline (and the column it quotes from) inspired my limerick: “How Stormy Daniels Could Doom Trump’s Presidency.”

Trump’s porn star could doom him. The key is
Donald’s sluttier and sleazier than SHE is!
He exults in his badness.
So SLUT-scorn her? Madness!
It won’t work; she’s as shameless as HE is.

This Is What Guilt Looks Like (Limerick)

Sunday, March 18th, 2018

The Donald looks guilty as sin;
His behavior betrays his chagrin
And dismay that his luck
Has run out. He can’t duck
His comeuppance, and nor can his kin.

Trump V. McCabe

Saturday, March 17th, 2018

McCabe had been set to retire
On Sunday, but Trump’s filled with ire,
Cuz McCabe’s a supporter
Of Comey. In order
To punish him, Donald says FIRE!

A Hairy Rick Saccone Theory (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

Crazy-sounding, but true:

Why did Rick Saccone’s run turned to ash?
Why’d his edge disappear in a flash?
Here’s my fav’rite absurd
Excuse that I’ve heard:
Rick Saccone “should have lost the mustache.”

From the Washington Examiner:

Frustrated by Saccone’s performance, some Republicans have gone so far as to zero in on his mustachioed appearance.

“It’s a porn stache,” said one Pennsylvania-based GOP strategist. “He should have lost the mustache.”

Turnover In Trump-Land (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 14th, 2018

This headline cries out for a limerick: “Trump Tires of His Cabinet”

I’m sick of my Cab’net, says Trump.
Dead weight’s got me stuck in a slump.
My key to success is
A team shouting yeses.
Dump ’em all! Watch my poll numbers jump!

Trump Nixes Naysayers (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Don’t you dare tell the President “No!”
If you do, Trump will deem you a foe.
All dissenters are out.
They have lost all their clout.
Only yes-men can star on his show.

Mike “Trump Enabler” Pompeo, Secy of State? (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Mike Pompeo for State? He’s a Yes-Man!
To help Donald, he’ll lie and aggress, man.
He’s a hawkish fanatic.
Loves torture! Dogmatic!
As for climate change? Feel my distress, man!

Trump’s Latest Ex Is Rex (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

Rex has rarely done anything right,
And his errors I’d often indict.
But re Russia he’s wise,
So to no one’s surprise
Trump’s response is: Get out of my sight!

Our Vulgarian-In-Chief (Limerick)

Sunday, March 11th, 2018

The Donald’s a rambling vulgarian,
Who pretends to be pro-proletarian.
He’s mean and mendacious.
His greed is rapacious.
Don’t revere him? You’re “low-IQ” carrion.

Donald Digs Yet Another Hole (Limerick)

Friday, March 9th, 2018

The Donald lacks impulse control,
Making damage control his staff’s role.
Trump said “yes” to young Kim
On an ego-filled whim.
Reckless acts, once again, take their toll.

Trump To Meet With Kim Jong-un — OY! (Limerick)

Friday, March 9th, 2018

Always vaunting his deal-making skill,
Trump expects to meet Kim and to kill.
Will he plunder, or blunder?
I worry and wonder
What nuclear secrets he’ll spill.

Trump Blunders Yet Again (Limerick)

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Trump’s determined to screw up our trade,
Signing orders most experts have nayed,
Foisting tariffs with zest,
Cuz The Donald knows BEST,
And the Dunce-In-Chief Must Be Obeyed!

Stormy Litigation (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

It seems Stormy and Trump made a deal;
Pre-election, for cash she’d conceal
Their affair and much more.
Her lawyer, top drawer,
Claims it’s void. I await the reveal.

Trump Pens Another Limerick

Wednesday, March 7th, 2018

You’ve probably seen this Trump tweet:

The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong! People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!

But I’ll bet you haven’t read his latest limerick:

All those stories of CHAOS are FAKE!
White House turn-over’s great! No mistake!
I’ve been seeking perfection
In staffer selection.
Claiming otherwise makes you a snake!

Gary Cohn, Bye-Bye (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Yet another departure! Now Cohn
Has resigned. Say goodbye to the lone
Voice of reason on trade.
Since this rational aide
Can no longer persuade, coop’s been flown.

When Was He Hinged? (Limerick)

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

Trump’s “unhinged,” people say — yes it’s true;
He’s unglued and it’s making them blue.
His bad moods makes him act
Without reason or fact.
My response must be: What else is new?

Not Wright For The EPA! (Limerick)

Saturday, March 3rd, 2018

“Trump EPA Pick Works for Dow Chemical”

Donald’s EPA pick works for Dow,
And all I can say’s “Holy Cow!”
If confirmed, Peter Wright’s
Brand new job’s toxic sites.
Is Dow Chemical happy? And how!
