Russian Election Interference — NOT A One-Time Thing (Limerick)

Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

Though people seem prone to adopt
The past tense re the Russians, I’ll opt
To claim present tense crime
Re elections, each time;
There’s no reason to think that they’ve stopped.

“Fake News” Hypocrisy (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

Trump, who loves to slam “unnamed sources” as “fake news,” retweeted “FOX & friends” today:

Jared Kushner didn’t suggest Russian communications channel in meeting, source says.

“Unnamed sources are bad! They spread lies.”
It’s “fake news” when they’re used, Donald cries.
And yet sources unnamed
Who’ve loudly proclaimed
Stuff he likes? Those are upright and wise.

Trump Quatrain

Thursday, May 25th, 2017

Donald glares and lectures NATO,
Kisses Saudi’s derrière,
Shares top secrets with the Russians;
Guess who owns this millionaire.

Trump’s Love Affair With Strongmen (Limerick)

Thursday, May 4th, 2017

The Donald heaps praise upon strongmen;
Evil despots quite clearly the wrong men
To admire or laud.
Trump’s a terrified fraud;
Naught but one of those cowed “get along” men.

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.

Trump’s Russian-Probe Freak-Out (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 28th, 2017

The Donald’s been tweeting up a storm over the probe of Trump’s Russia connections.

“Any claims about Russia and me
Are a hoax” — Donald’s latest tweet-spree.
“It’s Hill you should probe!”
Was he wearing a robe
When he threw up this Twitter debris?

Trump’s Russian Blues (Limerick)

Sunday, March 5th, 2017

Trump was having a rather good week this past week … until he wasn’t.

So, what ruined Trump’s Congressional address high? No, NOT being wiretapped by Obama. That’s just some shit Trump made up and threw up on Twitter.

No, here’s what REALLY angered Trump: Attorney General Jeff Sessions having to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, because he lied under oath regarding his own Russian contacts. Hence, my limerick:

Trump’s dismayed, overwrought, feeling frayed;
He’d been waiting for Sessions to aid
Him with Russia, and thought
That a fixer’d been bought.
Jeff’s recusal has nixed that charade.

Flynn, Victimized By Russophobia? (Limerick)

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

A headline like this cries out for a limerick:

Russian lawmakers rush to the defense of Trump’s ex-national security adviser

Flynn’s out, but he still has his backers–
Russian leaders, who mock his attackers;
Fear of Russia’s to blame.
For his ouster, they claim.
If they think that helps Flynn, they are crackers!
