Trump’s Biggest Fear? (Limerick)

Thursday, April 19th, 2018

Headline: “Trump allies worry Cohen will flip.”

Trump cronies are starting to fear
A Mike Cohen betrayal is near;
That when faced with the threat
Of prison, he’ll sweat
And blab secrets that Donald holds dear.

Trump v. Puerto Rico (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 18th, 2018

Headline: “Trump’s Puerto Rico Golf Venture: Not Such A Great Deal.”

Puerto Rico again has no light,
And support for the island’s been slight.
Trump’s neglect seems suspicious,
Vindictive and vicious.
Donald failed there in golf. I smell spite.

Comey Presses His Case (Limerick)

Monday, April 16th, 2018

If you watch tonight’s Comey interview (ABC, 10 PM Eastern) feel free to comment here:

I’m guessing that Trump won’t delight
In the interview airing tonight.
What will Comey disgorge
To ABC’s George?
I presume it won’t help Donald’s plight.

Sinclair’s Scheme (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018

Headline: “Sinclair producer in Nebraska resigns to protest ‘obvious bias'”

The Trump-loving owner Sinclair
Mandates talking points over the air;
Outlets MUST yell “Fake News”
To dupe and confuse.
The target’s all media that’s fair.

McConnell Stop Trump Tariffs? Don’t Hold Your Breath (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 3rd, 2018

Headline: “Mitch McConnell: Trump’s Tariffs Are a ‘Slippery Slope’”

Donald’s tariffs? A “slippery slope,”
Says McConnell. But follow-through? Nope!
Though his warnings are dour,
He won’t use his power
To curb him; that coward can’t cope.

Dow Doldrums (Limerick)

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

“The market keeps dropping!” we sob.
And there’s no reassurance from Schwab.
We feel robbed and depressed
And impossibly stressed.
Here’s my message to Donald: Great job!

Goverment By Whim? (Limerick)

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Headline: “Post: As Inner Circle Shrinks, Trump Decisions Even More Driven By Whim”

The Donald seems driven by whim.
It’s a source of his truculent vim.
When it’s time to decide,
Expertise bona fide
Is ignored. Informed choice? Chances dim!

Trump Invites Best Pal Putin To White House (Limerick)

Monday, April 2nd, 2018

Headline: “Trump Invites Putin to the White House”

Said Donald to Putin,”Please come
To the White House, my bestie, my chum.
I’ve plum secrets to share,
So I hope you’ll repair
To DC and make Democrats glum.”

My Next Job?

Sunday, April 1st, 2018

Very early in my legal career, I worked for a law firm that represented Trump’s father’s real estate company. Consequently, I had some dealings with the Donald. Hence this limerick:

It’s hard for the Donald to hire
A lawyer; his plight’s become dire.
In fact, things are so bad
That he tweeted me: “Mad,
Please come back. Get me out of my mire.”
