No Kudos From Me (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

Don’t expect any praise or applause
For that trip to Iraq; Donald’s flaws
Shall always outweigh
One single good day
In a reign that flouts all of our laws.

Limerick Ode To The Scapegoater In Chief

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

The Donald loves passing the buck;
Blame is something he’ll constantly duck.
Unlike Truman, who said:
“Buck stops here,” Trump instead
Runs amok — finds a fall guy to fuck.

Donald’s Revenge List (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 26th, 2018

Jane C. Timm: “The president is making a list, and checking it twice: Those who have wronged him.”

The Donald is making a list
Of people who’ve wronged him. He’s pissed!
Nearly ev’ryone’s mean,
So on vengeance Trump’s keen.
How he wishes they’d cease to exist!

Limerick Ode to our Blame-Shirker-In-Chief

Monday, December 24th, 2018

Headline: “Stock Market Rout Has Trump Fixated on Fed Chair Powell

Says Donald, The Fed is at fault
For the stock market’s large downward vault.
Blame Powell, he’ll blurt,
Throwing mud to subvert
The truth, via “facts” that are alt.

Losing Mattis Matters (Limerick)

Sunday, December 23rd, 2018

James Mattis held Donald at bay.
But alas, the man’s going away
Way before he had planned,
Because Trump felt unmanned
And said “Leave now!” (Trump-petulance-play.)

Limerick Ode To Trump’s Shutdown

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

The shutdown, dear Donald, is yours.
You broke it; you keep it. The doors
Of the gov have been shut
By YOU! Get your butt
Down to Congress. Concede … on all fours.

Mulvaney And Trump Are Quite The Couple (Limerick)

Saturday, December 22nd, 2018

Headline: “Mick Mulvaney in 2015: Trump’s views on border wall ‘simplistic,’ ‘absurd and almost childish’”

Donald’s wall-pledge is clearly “absurd!”
Don’t take it from me; that’s a word
Mick Mulvaney once used
To describe it. Confused?
So’s the staff-chief now leading Trump’s herd.

Our Shocking News (Limerick)

Friday, December 21st, 2018

The news keeps delivering shocks:
There’s a daily new low for our stocks;
James Mattis resigned;
Trump (as usual) whined;
And we seem to be governed by Fox.

There is plenty more bad news to list,
And the thought of it all makes me pissed.
The government’s closed,
And our nation’s been hosed
By a felon. (Well, you get the gist.)

Shutdown Blame Game

Friday, December 21st, 2018

The odds of a shutdown are growing,
And the BS-packed blame-game is flowing.
Blame Pelosi, they blare.
Schumer! Durbin! I swear,
Those Republican noses are growing.

Trump’s “Strongman Swagger” (Limerick)

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

John Dean: “Trump also believes taking thoughtless actions that hurt everyone shows his strongman swagger…”

The Donald will swagger and preen,
And behave like an uncontrolled teen.
He’ll target the weak
And the desp’rate, to seek
Base support. How he loves to demean!

Limerick Ode To Michael Flynn

Wednesday, December 19th, 2018

“Flynn gets slapped for lawyer stunt claiming he was somehow set up”

If you’re tempted to try legal stunts,
Take this lesson from Flynn, who’s a dunce:
When you feign being set up,
Your troubles won’t let up;
Fed’ral judges detest such affronts!

Trump’s Team Of Crooks (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Slate: “The DOJ has made a pretty thorough case that the Trump campaign was filled with crooks.”

Trump’s campaign-team was teeming with crooks
It surely was one for the books;
His affinity for
That felonious corps
Was driven by greed. (Not good looks.)

Trump’s Pre-Election Middle Class Tax-Cut Con (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

Headline: “Mnuchin Backs Off Trump’s Promise of 10% Middle-Class Tax Cut”

Just before the most recent election,
Donald tweeted a base-bait confection,
Falsely pledging a boon
For the middle class — soon!
Phantom tax cuts – a Trump misdirection.

Trump’s Favorite Defenses (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 18th, 2018

“Never happened!” (Trump’s fav’rite defense)
His use of that claim is immense.
When it fails (all the time)
Trump denies it’s a crime,
Unwisely surmising we’re dense.

Limerick Ode To Trump’s Inauguration Fund

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Trump’s Inaugural Fund looks suspicious;
Monies raised were bizarrely ambitious,
And the numbers don’t jibe.
Were there pay-offs? A bribe?
Major windfalls for Trump injudicious?

Limerick Ode To Kellyanne Conway

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Headline: “Kellyanne Conway complains to Fox News about getting “shut down” on CNN”

Kellyanne has the chutzpah to frown
And complain CNN shuts her down.
But when Conway appears there
She breaks lie-frontiers there;
That Queen of Deceit goes to town!

I Smell A Rat In The White House (Limerick)

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Headline: “Maybe Trump should try harder not to sound like a mob boss”

Dear Donald, it’s best not to choose
Mob-boss lingo, like “rat,” to confuse
And placate your base.
It does NOT help your case
To tweet jargon a crim’nal would use.

House GOP Still Investigating Hillary (Trump? Not so much!) (Limerick)

Monday, December 17th, 2018

Headline: “Comey slams Trump, House Republicans after 2nd Capitol Hill meeting”

Hypocritical House GOP
Keeps probing Hill Clinton with glee.
Yet they find it distasteful
And claim that it’s wasteful
To study Trump’s criminal spree.

Callous Kirstjen Nielsen (Limerick)

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Headline: “DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Blames Migrant Girl’s Death in Border Patrol Custody on Her Family”

Kirstjen Nielsen is callous and mean;
Her response to this death was obscene.
A young migrant girl dies?
Human decency’s wise!
But on blaming the parents, she’s keen.

Good Riddance To Ryan Zinke (Limerick)

Saturday, December 15th, 2018

Headline: “Ryan Zinke, Into the Sunset
The Secretary of the Interior departs under a cascade of ethics investigations.”

Ryan Zinke is leaving. No loss!
He is nearly as bad as his boss.
His departure is hailed.
He deserves to be jailed,
So buh-bye to that heel and his hoss.
