Never Too Soon

Just when we thought racial tensions couldn’t get tenser,
Any meet-up of white nationalists brings an element of danger.
Expecting things to get hot,
Our intrepid Gov. Rick Scott
Already declared a state of emergency for a Thursday speech by Richard Spencer.

Lumps of Coal

Healthcare reform just gets more twisted and vicious,
And tax reform looks like a lot of unfinished business.
They’ve all been naughty, not nice,
And after checking his list twice,
Santa Ryan says Congress has to stay in session through Christmas\.

The Great Inventor

As if we needed more proof that Trump’s a fruitcake,
Each new example just gives us a sick headache.
But he’s nothing if not relentless,
Though he’s increasingly senseless,
And now he’d have us believe he invented the word “fake.”

Travesty — Tragedy — Catastrophe

Trump’s trip to Puerto Rico was a total travesty.
He toted up body counts to define what’s a tragedy.
So let’s take the occasion
To consider Trump’s administration —
Now that is an unmitigated “real catastrophe!”

That Love Stinks

Trump rescinds executive orders ’cause Obama done ’em.
He rescinded DACA because it was another Obama one.
But when it came to rescinding DACA,
Trump smeared the dreamers with caca,
By trying to make us believe that he really, truly loved ’em.

The Old Kabul Bobble

Following his egregious Charlottesville sham,
Trump said, “Come on guys, gimme a success plan.”
So said the generals —
The guys with the arsenal:
“Yes sir! Let’s rev up the war in Afghanistan!”

Charlottesville: What Trump Promised

Trump’s Charlottesville meltdown sparked outrage,
As he outed himself as a racist on the world stage.
We shouldn’t be surprised,
Based on what he promised,
In his inaugural address he invoked “American Carnage.”

Live, from Bigotville

It was on live, national TV news
Where Trump revealed his bigoted views.
The doddy old racist
Coddled the supremacists,
While his base just nodded and said, “Me too.”

Nukes of Misdirection

Trump’s blustering away at Kim Jong Un
As if he thought nuclear war is fun.
And with cool nuclear threats,
What Trump finally gets
Is everybody’s mind off healthcare and Russians.

The Other Discrimination

Awesome are the talents of Jeff B. Sessions,
Who has now turned his fervor to higher education.
He’s not just a racist,
He’s also a linguist
Who can transform “affirmative action” into “discrimination.”
