The “Ridiculous Standard” Trump Once Loved (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 25th, 2017

CNBC Headline: “Trump calls first 100 days a ‘ridiculous standard’ — even though he set it as a standard.”

Remember when Donald embraced
The 1st HUNDRED Days standard? He based
His campaign on a list
Of such goals, mostly missed.
Having failed, he’d declare it erased.

Will Trump Instigate a Government Shut-Down On Purpose? (Limerick)

Monday, April 24th, 2017

As Disrupter-in-Chief, Trump’s an ace,
And he certainly seems right on pace
To delib’rately cause
A government pause;
A shut-down to placate his base.

For he promised his fans he’d make waves,
Shake things up and then topple the knaves
Who keep government going
And tax money flowing,
Enforcing each reg that enslaves.

But he finds himself deep in a pickle.
His accomplishments? Not worth a nickel
So he needs a big drama;
A gov-shut-down trauma —
Even gullible fans can be fickle.

Trump’s Inability To Take A Joke Is NO Joking Matter (Limerick)

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

I agree: Holding a pep rally to compete with the White House Correspondents’ Dinner makes Trump look vain, insecure, and cowardly.

The Donald is holding a rally
To avoid being roasted. I’d tally
His compulsion to hide
From jokes that deride
As YUUUUGE … which may goose his finale.

Dear Alex Jones (Limerick)

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

An Alex Jones request, apparently made without any sense of irony:

“Alex Jones releases statement on his ongoing custody trial: ‘I urge the press to be respectful and responsible.'”

Dear Alex, you threw us a curve
And proved you still have quite the nerve
In requesting respect.
Hope the press will elect
To bestow the respect you deserve.

Feeling More Cyber-Secure Yet? (Limerick)

Thursday, April 20th, 2017

Remember when Trump promised to deliver a cyber-security plan by today? Well, apparently nothing’s been done.

Dear Donald, how’s Barron? The lad
(You have bragged) has computer skills rad.
So I simply must ask
How’s his over-due task:
Fixing cyber-secur’ty for dad.

Hypocrisy, Thy Name Is Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

Donald’s slogans are fashioned for chumps:
“Buy and Hire American?” Grumps,
Rightly irked by his game,
Notice somehow the same
Rules are spurned by the firms built by Trumps.

Bill O’Reilly? Buh-Bye!

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

O’Reilly is OUT? Don’t appease me
And tease me with rumors that please me.
Oh it’s trending on Twitter?
I’ll giggle and titter:
Schadenfreude such news guarantees me.

Disclosure’s Just For Democrats? (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Donald’s taxes? Don’t bother to press.
Who arrives at the White House? Just guess.
The transparency-hawk
Who knocked Dems will just balk,
While he blithely discloses much less.

Transparency’s Only For Democrats? (Limerick)

Friday, April 14th, 2017

Donald’s trashed yet another tradition,
While expanding disclosure attrition.
He is hiding from view
White House logs of his queue
Of visitors. Stealth is his mission.

Trump v. Putin? (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Donald’s suddenly mired in disputes
With pal Putin. I’ve spotted the roots
Of their low in relations
And dreadful vibrations:
Trump must “prove” that they’re NOT in cahoots.

Paul Ryan’s Power Shortage (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Ryan’s power and clout are in doubt;
Reign adrift from its rout in the bout
Over health care reform,
The repeal/replace storm
Leaving Paul with a leverage drought.

Which Liar Should We Believe? (Limerick)

Saturday, April 8th, 2017

The Donald lays blame on Assad
For chemical warfare, but Vlad
Says Assad’s stash is barren;
Just rebels have sarin.
When two liars diverge, who’s the fraud?

What Bill O’Reilly Did Wrong, According To Trump (Limerick)

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

The Harasser-in-Chief’s made his call:
Bill was wrong to make payments at all
To the gals he harassed.
Seems Trump is aghast;
His Compadre-in-Lust took the fall.

Trump’s Team Of Truth-Maskers (Limerick)

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Trump staffers’ main job is to mask
Donald’s bullshit as truth; that’s their task.
So when queried, they lie
And distort and deny…
Till we wearily reach for a flask.

Trump and El-Sisi — Authoritarian Brotherhood? (Limerick)

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

Bradd Jaffy (NBC News) on Twitter: “After no handshake with Merkel, President Trump brushes aside human rights concerns for not one but two handshakes with Egypt’s leader el-Sisi.”

Please recall when the Donald refused
To shake hands with Ms. Merkel. He oozed
Deep disdain. Then compare
Donald’s welcoming air;
Vile el-Sisi makes Trump all enthused.

Trump’s Flynn Nonsense (Limerick)

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

Trump’s incensed, and I hate to sound dense,
But his grievance re Flynn makes no sense.
Donald hired a threat
To security; yet
The UNMASKING to Trump’s the offense.

Outrage-Fatigue (Limerick)

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

I feel outrage-fatigue setting in,
For I’m sick of contending with spin
And disposing of lies,
While the man I despise
Smirks and drowns us in swamp-filled chagrin.

Who’s The Fool Now? (Limerick)

Saturday, April 1st, 2017

I’m avoiding the April Fools’ fuss
Cuz I’d rather just glower and cuss;
Dour Donald’s in power
And life has grown sour.
It seems that the joke is on US!

Trump’s Empty Threats (Limerick)

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

This tweet from Alex Burns (New York Times & CNN) inspired a limerick. How? It made me realize that Trump’s anti-Freedom Caucus rants may actually help its members:

“Please, sir, don’t massively elevate us as the scourge of the mainline Republican Party.” Does anyone hear the Freedom Caucus saying this?

While it’s true that Trump clearly outranks
The Republican wingnuts, he tanks
When he threatens the Caucus
Called “Freedom.” His raucous
Attacks might just make them say, “Thanks!”

Trump’s Novel Approach To Global Warming (Limerick)

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

Headline of the Day: “Energy Department climate office bans use of phrase ‘climate change.’”

How does Donald hold danger at bay?
By deeming some terms not okay
To include in a writing,
Like “climate change” — fighting
Big problems the censorship way!
