Budget Director Blues (Limerick)

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021

Neera Tanden’s Budget Director nomination appears doomed because … “MEAN Tweets!” Double standard, much?

Trump’s Tweeting career was extensive,
His Twitter posts mean and offensive.
Did this mar the support
From his party? (Loud snort!)
But those “MEAN” Tanden tweets? They’re expensive!

Parlez-vous Parler? (Limerick)

Wednesday, January 20th, 2021

Parler’s back, but its site is awry.
Tech troubles abound, as folks try
To communicate there;
A disheart’ning affair,
If you’re seeking a safe place to lie.

Banished and Bereft (Limerick)

Saturday, January 9th, 2021

Donald Trump doesn’t “get” the to-do;
So WHAT if he triggered a coup!
But he’s run out of luck
And for once he can’t duck
The backlash from acts he should rue.

Donald Trump, who’s a bully full-blown,
Lost his bullhorn; his phone’s a mere phone.
No more weapon of choice —
Just a much-weakened voice;
He’s bereft of his base and alone.

Banned At Last (Limerick)

Friday, January 8th, 2021

Donald Trump has been banished from Twitter,
And Donald’s undoubtedly bitter.
His corrupt tweet decorum
Has cost him this forum.
Now how’ll he pass time on the shitter?

Will It Never End? (Limerick)

Tuesday, December 8th, 2020

Enduring Trump’s reign has been hard;
Our nation’s been tainted and scarred.
So this question’s arisen:
Is tweeting in prison
Permitted? Please tell me it’s barred!

Liars Flee “Censorship” (Limerick)

Monday, November 16th, 2020

NY Times Headline: “Fact-Checked on Facebook and Twitter, Conservatives Switch Their Apps

“Since the election, millions have migrated to alternative social media and media sites like Parler, Rumble and Newsmax.”

If you’re fact-checked on Facebook or Twitter,
There’s no need to feel outraged or bitter;
Join Parler or Rumble.
The folks there don’t grumble
At lies. They just spread ’em and titter.

Political News Madness (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 14th, 2020

Political news drives me mad,
And it makes me both angry and sad.
Yet its pull is so brutal,
Resistance is futile.
Addicted to Twitter? A tad.

Manic Donald (Limerick)

Wednesday, October 7th, 2020

Headline: “Trump’s Tweeting Even More Erratic Than Usual”

Donald Trump sits atop of the Feds
And behaves like a madman on meds.
His tweets appear manic,
Galvanic, Satanic.
Can I panic at “Off with their heads!”?

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.

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.

Donald’s High Anxiety (Limerick)

Friday, December 7th, 2018

The Donald seems anxious today;
His tweets appear frantic. They bray
About Mueller in ways
That suggests a deep craze…
As the hunter locks on to his prey.

Limerick Ode To An Internet Troll

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018

Headline: “Donald Trump, Internet troll”

Is the Donald an Internet troll?
He’s embraced a provocative role
Via lump-of-coal tweets
Filled with lies, memes, and bleats
That betray the huge hole in his soul.

Roseanne Reboot Booted (Limerick)

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Roseanne’s tweets are a vile, putrid sump,
So her network has opted to dump
The reboot. She’s expelled
And ironically held
To a much higher standard than Trump.

Our Petulant President (Limerick)

Sunday, May 27th, 2018

Trump dishonors the war dead via Memorial Day Weekend tweets:

On Twitter, Trump’s plaintive today.
To prepare for tomorrow? No way!
It’s not war dead he mourns,
But a “witch hunt” he scorns —
Selfish, petulant Trump on display!

Blockhead Donald’s Failed Blockade (Limerick)

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

Headline: “Trump can’t block users on Twitter, federal judge rules”

Poor Trump! How he hates to be mocked
By mean tweets! So he angrily blocked
The accounts of those writers,
Who sued cuz they’re fighters,
And won. Snowflake Donald is focked.

Our Tweeter-In-Chief (Limerick)

Friday, March 23rd, 2018

I must learn to ignore Donald’s tweets;
For the most part, they’re mean, lie-filled bleats.
But his posts are addicting;
Soon statements conflicting
Will spew, as the cycle repeats.

Roger Stone’s Bitter About Twitter (Limerick)

Sunday, October 29th, 2017

Why did Twitter suspend Roger Stone?
He sent tweets Twitter cannot condone.
Seems it’s wrong to abuse
Those who bring us the news;
Can’t spew shit-laden threats via phone.

*****

New Republican Slogan:

“Alms for the Rich and Arms for ALL”

*****

DeVos cut 72 guidelines for disabled students.

So serving a mentally disabled president hasn’t upped her empathy 4 the disabled.

*****

Lewandowski: Keep focus on ‘the continued lies of the Clinton administration’

And here I thought Trump was in the Oval. Silly me!

*****

NBCNews Tweet: “President Trump greets members of the press’ kids in Halloween costumes: ‘I cannot believe the media produced such beautiful children'”

Some day those children will be able to proudly tell THEIR children: “When I was your age, I met the USA’s WORST president ever!”

*****

Trump Tweet: “It is now commonly agreed, after many months of COSTLY looking, that there was NO collusion between Russia and Trump. Was collusion with HC!”

At the start of your tweet, you seem to have left out a few key words: “In the Trump family.”

*****

Trump Tweet: “Wacky & totally unhinged Tom Steyer, who has been fighting me and my Make America Great Again agenda from beginning, never wins elections!”

Steyer “unhinged?” You’ve got that backwards. Steyer’s spent $10 million for a TV ad campaign advocating your impeachment because YOU’RE unhinged.

Also, unlike YOU, Steyer’s “REALLY RICH.”

*****

Headline: “Trump: ‘Really great advertising’ will keep kids off drugs.”

Also from Trump: “If we can teach young people not to take drugs … it’s really, really easy not to take them.”

All this from the purported non-drinker who’s driving the rest of us to drink.

Open Limerick To Donald Trump

Thursday, October 5th, 2017

Dear Donald, the news isn’t fiction.
So enough with your “made up” depiction!
It’s your tweets that are fake;
You’re a bum, liar, snake!
How I ache for your fel’ny conviction.

Tweeter-In-Chief (Limerick)

Sunday, August 27th, 2017

The Donald’s still busily tweeting
Whiny drivel and self-serving bleating.
I guess “Sheriff” John Kelly
Let Trump keep his telly…
Which means LOTS more Trump Twitter-excreting.

Tweeter-In-Chief Trump Outdoes Himself (Limerick)

Monday, June 5th, 2017

The Donald has once again binged
On tweets, best described as unhinged.
Even folks who support
His positions exhort
Him to stop, having read ’em & cringed.
