Trump’s Keen Mastery Of Economics (Limerick)

Keeping a straight face when you interview Trump must be tough … especially for The Economist team; Trump told them he “came up with” the phrase “prime the pump,” and wanted to know if they’d heard it before and understood what it meant.

There once was a wordsmith named Trump,
Who claimed to have coined “prime the pump,”
A phrase that pre-dates
Donald’s birth. Sorry mates,
But his brain remains lodged in his rump.

    Had to laugh at the idea of Trump the wordsmith. On the other hand, I can’t really laugh about him. He’s a loose cannon who could call down his wrath on the whole world for the flimsiest of reasons.
