Trumpy Wonderland

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

With apologies to Winter Wonderland’s composers:

Tariffs mount. Markets plummet.
Pundits spin. Goodbye summit.
The Donald’s a nut
Who praises his gut.
Living in a Trumpy Blunderland.

McConnell Stop Trump Tariffs? Don’t Hold Your Breath (Limerick)

Headline: “Mitch McConnell: Trump’s Tariffs Are a ‘Slippery Slope’”

Donald’s tariffs? A “slippery slope,”
Says McConnell. But follow-through? Nope!
Though his warnings are dour,
He won’t use his power
To curb him; that coward can’t cope.

Trump Blunders Yet Again (Limerick)

Thursday, March 8th, 2018

Trump’s determined to screw up our trade,
Signing orders most experts have nayed,
Foisting tariffs with zest,
Cuz The Donald knows BEST,
And the Dunce-In-Chief Must Be Obeyed!

Gary Cohn, Bye-Bye (Limerick)

Tuesday, March 6th, 2018

Yet another departure! Now Cohn
Has resigned. Say goodbye to the lone
Voice of reason on trade.
Since this rational aide
Can no longer persuade, coop’s been flown.
