Senators Quiet and Unplugged (Not a Gag!)

Sunday, January 19th, 2020

Headline: “No escape: Senators to be quiet, unplugged for Trump trial”

Juror-Senators told to be quiet?
Might as well be commanded to diet.
Keeping mum ain’t their thing.
Self-restraint’s bound to sting.
(So will jail should they opt to defy it.)

Nancy v. Mitch (and Trump) — Limerick

Wednesday, January 15th, 2020

New documents show why the president has been trying to hide evidence from Congress.”

New proof’s in the public domain,
Which may prove to be Donald Trump’s bane.
So though Nancy’s demand
Was not met, those who’ve panned
Her may rue this large evidence gain.

Donald’s Iran Morass (Limerick)

Thursday, January 9th, 2020

Trump proclaimed: Iran failed to comply
With the nuke deal (a treacherous lie.)
Pulling “facts” from his ass,
Donald caused this morass.
Now we all pay the price; some will die.

Donald “Emboldened Rogue” Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 8th, 2020

As Donald Trump’s dirty deeds mount,
He never is called to account.
This emboldens and stirs him
To escalate — spurs him
To WORSE acts — too many to count.

GOP Blockheads Block Witness Demands (Limerick)

Tuesday, January 7th, 2020

Hill Headline: “McConnell has the votes to block Democrats’ witness demands in Trump impeachment trial”

Donald Trump’s taken actions illicit,
But Republicans scoff and dismiss it
As perfectly fine
While they toe Mitch’s line…
And that makes them corruptly complicit.

More Yowls From Our Whiner-In-Chief (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 17th, 2019

Trump Tweet: “It’s not fair that I’m being Impeached when I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong! The Radical Left, Do Nothing Democrats have become the Party of Hate. They are so bad for our Country!”

“It’s not fair that I’m being impeached,”
The self-pitying Donald tweet-screeched.
He’s a wallowing fraud,
But base followers laud
Ev’ry breach and each nadir he’s reached.

Donald’s Defenders (Limerick)

Thursday, December 12th, 2019

Headline: “House Republicans’ Trump impeachment strategy is simple: Distract, deceive and yell”

Distract and deceive and keep yelling;
That’s the GOP’s method of selling
The Donald’s “defense.”
His guilt is immense…
But on facts his defenders ain’t dwelling.

Trump Booed At World Series Game Five (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

I couldn’t resist writing a 2-verse limerick about Trump’s ball game boos:

Donald Trump’s unaccustomed to boos;
He’s protected from anti-Trump views.
But a ball game affords
No shelter from hordes
Of folks who don’t follow his cues.

The World Series (Game Five) featured booing
And “lock him up!” chants — worth-pursuing —
All directed at Trump
Who sat on his rump
And glowered, free speech his undoing.

Now, Back To Impeachment (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 29th, 2019

Al-Baghdadi is dead, and that’s great;
Good riddance to him — no debate!
But there’s still no erasing
The Donald’s debasing
His office. Trump MUST meet his fate.

Bill Taylor Seals Trump’s Fate (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

Laurence Tribe: “Taylor’s testimony is the smoking gun that will seal Trump’s fate.”

Taylor’s statements are sealing Trump’s fate,
So poor Donald is rather irate;
A quid pro quo feast —
“Smoking gun” at the least.
Donald Trump shall go down — I can’t wait!

Our “Lynched” “Victim” In Chief (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2019

Headline: “Trump provokes outrage by calling impeachment inquiry a ‘lynching'”

From impeachment the Donald is flinching;
He cringes and squinches while inching
T’wards his “just deserts” course,
But he shows no remorse,
Cuz of course he’s a “victim” of “lynching.”

Trump’s Plain-Sight-Crime Defense (Limerick)

Saturday, October 19th, 2019

Headline: “Trump’s novel corruption defense: I do it in plain sight”

Trump keeps doing misdeeds in plain sight
To induce the belief they’re no blight
On the laws of our land,
That they breach no command;
If illegal, he’d hide them all. Right?

Breaking News!

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

The decision? A challenging sort,
Backed up by a detailed report;
All options reviewed
And the best one pursued:
The G-7’s at Donald’s resort.

No More “Fig Leaf” For Fox (Limerick)

Sunday, October 13th, 2019

Fox’s “fig leaf,” Shep Smith, has resigned,
Which is putting Fox News in a bind:
They once used him to claim
Agitprop’s not their aim.
With him gone, who’ll Fox News hide behind?

That “Perfect” Ukraine Call (Limerick)

Tuesday, October 8th, 2019

The Donald insists on defending
That infamous phone call, pretending
There was “no quid pro quo” —
It was “perfect.” E’en so,
I predict it’s the start of Trump’s ending.

Limerick Ode To The Horn-Blower in Chief (Limerick)

Monday, October 7th, 2019

Trump Tweet: “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!)…”

Trump’s “wisdom” is “great and unmatched.”
(Donald’s claim via Twitter, dispatched
In a horn-blowing tweet.)
Seems his feed is replete
With proof that Trump’s brain has been snatched.

Ukraine “Quid Pro Quo” Argument is a DISTRACTION (Limerick)

Friday, October 4th, 2019

JustSecurity.org Headline: “The ‘Quid’ is a Crime: No Need to Prove ‘Pro Quo’ in Ukrainegate”

The debate over Trump’s “quid pro quo”
Is missing the point, you should know:
When the “quid” is unlawful
(And Trump’s “quid” is awful),
You DON’T need unfreeze-the-aid “quo.”

Limerick Ode To Trump Enablers

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Headline: “The Mad King’s Enablers”

Though elected Republicans know
That Trump is unfit, they still show
That their stance is protect
And defend and deflect…
No matter how low Trump will go.

Law-Flouter in Chief (Limerick)

Thursday, October 3rd, 2019

Headline: “Trump Just Committed More High Crimes on the White House Lawn”

For his upcoming ’20 campaign,
Trump solicited help from Ukraine.
China too, as we’ve seen
Right in public! Trump’s keen
To flout laws for his personal gain.

The Victim-In-Chief Lashes Out (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2019

Headline: “Trump Says House Investigations Are ‘Bullshit’”

Poor Donald is all in a stew;
He complains we’re engaged in a COUP.
Extra hostile on Twitter,
He’s angry and bitter.
What’s a “victim” to do? Tweet and sue.
