Trump Can’t Escape Tapes (Limerick)

Monday, August 13th, 2018

Trump made FALSE claims of taping, with drama,
Feigning grievance from fake spy-claim trauma.
But he’s now in bad shape
Cuz his CRONIES have tape.
Seems the only NON-taper’s Obama.

Limerick Ode To Omarosa

Friday, August 10th, 2018

Omarosa, I’d love to believe
All your claims about Trump, but I grieve,
Cuz as much as they sound
Like the Donald, I’m bound
To discount them; like Trump, you deceive.

Trump’s Migrating Standards (Limerick)

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Headline: “Melania Trump’s Parents Become U.S. Citizens, Using ‘Chain Migration’ Trump Hates”

The Donald condemns “chain migration”
To enthused and extended ovation.
Yet his wife seems quite pleased
To exploit it. It eased
Her mom and dad’s path to our nation.

Trump Puts Press At Risk (Limerick)

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Headline: “Media boost security as Trump ramps up ‘enemy’ rhetoric”

When the media covers Trump rallies,
It’s as risky as ent’ring dark allies.
Donald’s shown us his cards,
So the press now needs guards
Due to menacing crowds and threat tallies.

The GOP’s “Blue Wave” Blues (Limerick)

Thursday, August 9th, 2018

Headline: “4 signs of a blue wave from Election Day: Republicans should be running scared”

Most Republican leaders see Trump
As creating a GOP slump.
But not Donald! He’ll brag
And pretend the “Trump drag”
Is “fake news,” as our “blue wave” odds jump.

Limerick Ode To Republican Chris Collins

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Headline: “New York Republican Rep. Chris Collins indicted on insider trading charges”

Chris Collins is under arrest
For fraud and false statements. Obsessed
With great greed, Chris misleads,
Commits crimes and misdeeds,
As he does what his party does best.

Hypocritical Pence (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Mike Pence’s hypocrisy cries out for a limerick:

Vice President Mike Pence once argued the president of the United States should be held to the highest moral standards to determine whether he should resign or be removed from office.”

Pence made the argument in two columns in the late 1990s, where he wrote that then-President Bill Clinton’s admission of an affair with a White House intern and prior lies to the public about the matter, possibly under oath, meant Clinton should be removed from office.

When Bill Clinton was Prez, Pence decried
And denounced Bill’s affairs. How he tried
To get Clinton expelled.
But such quibbles seem quelled;
He’s Trump’s VEEP now, so standards have died.

The Trials Of Manafort (Limerick)

Tuesday, August 7th, 2018

The Manafort trial’s underway,
With evidence damning. Hooray!
So will Paul cop a plea
And cooperate? Gee,
I’ll bet Donald is praying for “nay.”

Open Limerick To The White House Press

Monday, August 6th, 2018

White House briefings don’t give us the news.
No instead they spread self-serving views
And start lie-fest infernos.
They demonize journos.
Why attend them? The press should refuse.

Russia Meddling Quatrain Duo

Friday, August 3rd, 2018

Donald’s lawyer is rather a cut up,
Saying Mueller should “put up or shut up.”
While Rudy tells lies and lets loose,
Mueller quietly tightens the noose.

*****

Stop trying to peddle
the weasel-word “meddle.”
‘Twas a Russian attack,
so soft-ped’ling it’s whack.

Trump Spreads Fake News About Grocery Shopping (Limerick)

Wednesday, August 1st, 2018

Headline: “Trump appears not to understand grocery shopping in latest push for voter ID laws”

Oh where is my photo I.D.?
I need to buy food. Woe is me!
It’s missing, so now
I can’t buy any chow
Says the Donald. (Not even fresh brie?)
