Buryin’ the Cohen

Man, Donald Trump is pissed at Michael Cohen
For violating the trust that Trump thinks Cohen owes him.
First Mike records his calls,
And then has the unmitigated balls
To give the tape to Trump’s media archenemy, CNN.

Lord of Subsidies

Trump levies his tariffs, some say impulsively,
While the GOP allows it, albeit begrudgingly.
Amid the cries of the farmers,
Here comes Trump, loving Father.
What Trump taketh with tariffs, Trump giveth with subsidies.

He Said, He Said

And we thought Donald Trump was just a racist old demagogue,
But his authoritarian tendencies are too many to catalogue.
And there’ll be no disputin’
When he sits down with Vlad Putin,
That it’ll just be a good old one-on-one despot dialogue.


Despite the will of a majority of voters,
We ended up with Donald Trump as POTUS.
And because he’s a dick,
With his Supreme Court pick,
He’ll create a right-wing, activist SCOTUS.

Over Four Hours

Signing them feels nice, like a stroll in the Rose Garden.
And it’s fun to dangle one in front of Manafort, Flynn and Cohen.
Giving one to Jack Johnson felt good,
And should Martha get one? She should!
From his ecstatic expression, Donald Trump might have a pardon hardon.

Racism Versus Accuracy

When she published her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett,
Justice was swift for Roseanne, and she deserved it.
But when Samantha Bee
Called Ivanka a “feckless c___,”
There should be no fallout — what SHE said was accurate.

A Precarious Billionaire

Trump violates the Emoluments Clause with chutzpah and flair.
He indulges in corruption, and the Congress doesn’t care.
But his hotels and golf courses
Are victims of economic forces.
If he keeps losing hundred millions, soon he won’t even be a billionaire.

A Literal Metaphor

“There’s a sinkhole at the White House,” said the groundskeeper.
“It’s not so big yet, but it keeps getting bigger.”
It’s times like these
One flaunts an English degree —
When literal life fulfills the promise of an apt metaphor.

Leaking Leakers Who Leak

Now that sympathy for John McCain has peaked,
Sarah Sanders has hit a new level of pique.
She’s fed up with the blabbers
And the feckless backstabbers,
After the meeting about the leaked leak was leaked.

It’s Convention Apprehension

They say desperation is the mother of invention,
And the GOP is starting to feel some frustration.
As they scour the country,
They keep coming up empty —
No one wants to host the 2020 Republican national convention.
