Black History Dunce

He’s got a reputation for nabobbery and knavery,
And his comments range from stupid to unsavory.
But when Donald Trump said never
Have blacks “been in worse shape” — ever,
He kind of overlooked Jim Crow laws, voting rights and slavery.

‘Basket of Deplorables’

Donald’s daughter Ivana is very adorable,
And his real immigration policy is unenforceable.
But when it comes to his minions —
Those dumb, racist millions,
Hillary was right — they’re a “basket of deplorables.”

Russian to Judgement

Trump’s support of Putin has the GOP in a predicament,
Given Putin’s habit of killing reporters and dissidents.
But Trump’s campaign has doubled down:
“Putin’s a hero; Obama’s a clown,”
And Trump prefers a ruthless dictator to an elected president.

Woulda, Shoulda, Coulda

Li’l Marco ran for Senate when he said he wouldn’t,
And he could win, though we think he shouldn’t.
Could he promise to serve
A full six-year term?
His constituents asked, and he said no, he couldn’t.

Lesbian Farmers Attack!

Conservatives still like to call him a foreigner,
But what they really fear is Obama the Reformer.
During his last months in office,
He’ll topple the right-wing edifice,
By filling the Midwest with FEMA-funded lesbian farmers.

A Panicky Plan

It’s with no small sense of urgency
Some GOPers are planning an insurgency.
To save down-ballot,
They’ll use a mallet
To “Break Glass In Case of Emergency.”

Oodles of Rubles

Paul Manafort’s tenure as Trump’s guy is done.
His departure will go unmourned by anyone.
We can’t express joy
That he’s unemployed,
Because we know he still has his Russian slush fund.

Bringing On Breitbart

His campaign’s unlikely to outlive it,
And the GOP’s unlikely to forgive it.
But by hiring Steve Bannon,
Trump remains a loose cannon,
And he’s proved once and for all he ain’t gonna pivot.

It’s ‘Extreme’ Alright

Migrants are responsible for beheadings,
Rape, pillage, murder and blood-letting.
So to save our fair nation
From foul criminal immigration,
Donald Trump wants to implement “extreme vetting.”

The Great Negotiator

Trump warns us not to underestimate
His capacity to negotiate.
He doesn’t want to be pilloried
By a debater like Hillary,
So he’ll just negotiate his way out of the debates.
