What a Joker!

When it comes to illegal immigrants, Trump’s in favor of booting ’em.
And asylum-seekers and migrants, Trump’s in favor of excluding ’em.
But in Panama City
It did seem that he
Jokingly indicated that he is also in favor of shooting ’em.

Just Fellow Colludniks

So Trump insists there is no collusion,
Despite contrary evidence in profusion.
But when he spends 90 minutes on the phone
With Vladimir Putin — alone,
Well, you can begin to understand our confusion.

Here’s the Rub

At Mar-A-Lago Li Yang was a-tending
To the presidential access she was vending.
She was the yin to Trump’s yang,
Introducing Wang, Chen and Zhang,
Helping everyone achieve happy ending.

The Limits of Trumplomacy

A Third World dictator meeting with the purported envoy of democracy,
Turned into a futile exercise in global-stage pomp and idiocy.
During amateur hour,
The meeting went sour,
As they explored the outer limits of reality-TV Trumplomacy.

Ivanka, Job Maker

Donald Trump thinks we’re all justa buncha yobs,
Who believe the outrageous lies he lobs.
In a speech just yesterday,
He had the temerity to say,
His daughter Ivanka had created “millions of jobs.”

His Other Chosen Son

It’s the universe’s most coveted endorsement,
And it carries the clout of the firmament.
Almost half of Republicans
And more evangelical Christians
Believe God wanted Donald Trump to be president.

The Bum’s a Simulacrum!

It’s hard for Trump to visit Mar-a-Lago or Bedminster,
So he bought a golf simulator so his game doesn’t wither.
His swing he refines
During Executive Time,
While simultaneously playing on his presidency simulator.

Commander-in-Thief

All hail Donald Trump, the Commander-in-Thief!
He found a way around emergency declaration grief.
He’ll grab some money
From the U.S. Army,
And steal the rest from California and Puerto Rico disaster relief.

Putin’s Pushing Tulsi

Vladimir Putin’s propaganda machine may be beaten and battered,
But it still has a sabre to rattle in its scabbard.
But this time it’s not Trump
The Kremlin’s seeking to pump up —
Its election-meddling websites favor Hawaii’s Dem, Tulsi Gabbard.

Trump’s Leverage Lost

Yesterday, six GOP senators decided to flip —
And voted to end the shutdown and brinkmanship.
Leaving Trump with no leverage
And bad media coverage,
And a base about ready to give him a pink slip.
