The Candy Date's J-bait!

Roy sez:

Other’s standards, I simply ignore.
Even when she says “nope!”
Like some voters, she really wants Moore.

What's next? "Irma la douce?"

Lack of empathy isn’t a crime
But we think that Trump warrants a rhyme
With the shear nonchalance
Of his Harvey response:
Quote the president, “Have a good time”

The Savant knows that supporters will say that Trump was only trying to bring a mood of optimism to those in Texas recovering from Harvey's devastation but as usual his choice of words conveys a certain insensitivity to the suffering of others that is characteristic of Trump's self-aggrandizing demeanor.

Lucky for him, but not many others, that he will be getting another opportunity this week to demonstrate some honest human emotion.

Honest Loyalty

Mr. Trump, I defy you to show me
An allegiant more loyal than Comey.
So when he testified
And implied that you lied,
It was clear that he’ll not be your homie.

Some advice for Sean Spicer

No matter what doubters may say, say
“The president’s really OK.” 'K?
Trump’s not truly deranged.
He’s just lost without his covfefe.

Stars, Felon, Alabama

And Governor Bentley
Has, not incidentally,
Accepted his fate and resigned.

BTW, if you are looking for a new drinking game, then try a shot of your favorite spirits every time you hear Bentley invoke a supreme being in this video of last week's denial. A guaranteed buzz before it is over.

Mr. President, give it a rest!

Mr. Trump, are you thinking, perhaps,
The American public are saps?
And the blowing keeps sounding like “Taps!”

The Worth of a Nation

In a world filled with Trumped up decriers,
Alternative facts, and big liars;
Don’t you think it just grand
They can love La La Land
While not being Moonlight deniers?

Yow! Are we having fun yet?

No question, ’twas destined he’d win it.
As Phineas Barnum might spin it:
In the coming world order,
A new Trump supporter
Is bound to be born ev’ry minute.

Yes, just like you, the Savant is still reeling from what occurred last November and he doesn't mean Thanksgiving with your crazy family. Having had several months to digest the news of what is likely the worst event of his life with the exception of the Lincoln assassination, (No, he wasn't there but his good friend Fred Douglass told him about it) he feels that true to his motto he has no option but to return from semi-retirement. 

During that hiatus from his doggerel and while seeing if his dog'll roll, sit, or beg with the proper incentive; he was lulled by the knowledge that after all, even though there were continuing tensions at home and abroad over race, religion, nativism, gender, and income inequality, we did elect the first black president, twice!

So how did we screw this one up so badly? Well, despite Mr. Trump's obsession with so-called "voter fraud," the only fraud perpetrated on the American people was one that they bought into willingly or through their own complacence. We have allowed ourselves to be hoodwinked by a carnival barker, a consummate showman, who has been peddling his circus act for years. While some of us have remained outside the tent, laughing at the absurd claims and preposterous boasts but mildly entertained, we have ignored the line of paying customers scrabbling to be included under the Trump Big Top. By making vague, even contradictory, statements about what he can do for us ("Make America Great Again") and at the same time playing to our worst fears ("rapists, murderers") he makes us feel understood, appreciated, and part of something bigger and life changing.

No, it wasn't Russian hackers, Putin, James Comey, or Hillary haters that turned this election. It was our own gullibility and credulity and until we take responsibility for the outcome we will be powerless to do anything about it.

Pinheads are everywhere
