Plumbing the Swamp

When he picked them we thought they were horrible,
And from Day One their trajectory was predictable.
Whether they’re pushed or they jump,
The time’s come for Trump
To cobble together a new Cabinet of Deplorables.

No Text for Rex

The call from John Kelly was vague but discreet,
He gave instructions to watch Twitter all week.
When around rolled Tuesday,
It became a big news day,
When Rex Tillerson got fired via Donald Trump’s tweet.

A Perfect Stormy

We all know what Donald does when he gets horny,
But this time it involved hush money and an attorney.
You can pay off a porn star,
But she knows where the sexts are,
So the weather at the White House is looking Stormy.

Not So Funny

Trump’s budget, by human compassion, is unencumbered.
As usual, for the poor and working class, it’s a bummer.
And that ballooning deficit?
Our grandkids will pay for it,
Though Mick Mulvaney says he could have balanced it using “funny numbers.”

Fake Nunes News

For a recused guy, he doesn’t act very recused,
Though by his antics on the Hill, we’re still amused.
But he’s tackled the negativity
With some newfound creativity,
Creating a Facebook page with only positive Devin Nunes news.

Oaf Under Oath

We think a Trump interview with Mueller would be a fine thing.
Donald said he’d do it because there’s nothing he’s hiding.
But his lawyers hollered, “No!”
‘Cause there’s one thing that they know:
Trump can’t possibly talk for an hour without lying.

Alone with The Memo

Trump released The Memo at the behest of The Hannity,
But that numbnuts Nunes has created a bit of a mystery.
We know Trump received it,
But did he indeed read it?
All we know is he was left alone for hours with a copy.

A Lunatic’s Spasm

Most see Trump’s “bigger button” tweet as impolitic,
And most admit it’s a poor example of realpolitik.
But leave it to the North Koreans
Who’ve practiced insult art for eons,
To characterize Trump’s tweet as the “spasm of a lunatic.”

Bannon Wasn’t Worth It

Steve Bannon’s disposition is not what we’d call sunny,
Though some of his one-liners were pretty funny.
But his Breitbart worth began to pale,
When measured upon a scale
Against big bags of Mrs. Rebekah Mercer’s money.

One Loose Bannon

The Trumpian White House loyalty code, well, Bannon broke it.
If we thought Trump was already mad, well, Bannon stoked it.
Now Trump’s lawyers want him to desist and cease
Exercising his right to free speech.
It’s clear to us Bannon didn’t lose his mind — he just spoke it.
