Clearing the Trump Trainwreck!

Written by Robert S. Becker

Egads, take heed, all keen to learn
How Trump’s scurrilous “premises” burn,
Aflame, feeding his own bonfires;
Uproar turns swamps into quagmires.

Trump exiles “losers”— no remorse,
Say, ex-wives “fired” with divorce;
He strikes at will —  like any riffraff —
By ambushing his own, slavish staff!

What witless ingrate so impugns,
His infamous yet servile goons?
What dimwit king pushes loyalty —
Then slurs his self-made royalty?

A time-bomb ticks for ousting Mueller —
Trump’s alarmed what findings augur.
His bankrupt ploy, to whine and growl,
With threats galore to disembowel.

Will not this user’s unhinged fuse
Repel sane picks who dread abuse?
Can pardons shield all his cronies,
Or power plays save all his phonies?

Collusion oozes more than crime —
The iceberg tip of willful slime.
No genius to unearth the sleaze —
Some day tagged the “Trump disease.”

Could the Donald, seething umbrage
Quit to end this non-stop carnage?
“No” says alt-right, oft-wrong Bannon
“Snarl more” roars this loosest cannon.

Good news: the majority won’t budge
Refusing to normalize sludge:
The finale for endless sham —
Exposure of all Trump flimflam.

Just firing this pathetic martyr
Hardly renews our national charter.
Resistance must slay Trumpism dead,
Never again to rear its ugly head. your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Taking Michael Moore seriously, I offer my poetic ridicule in the overall crusade to extinguish Trumpism (not just Trump) -- quotation from Huff Post:

"When it comes to Donald Trump’s presidency, Michael Moore has high hopes that humor will win the day.

On Wednesday, the filmmaker and activist told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert he believes the best “way to bring [Trump] down is with satire.”

“His thin skin, as you’ve pointed out so well, is so thin,” Moore said.

“All we need is like a thousand or a million little comedy shivs — just, you know, non-violent, don’t hurt him,” he added. “But just under his skin, because he can’t take being laughed at.”
