Trump Thinks He’s Better Loved Now than After His Election

“I think it makes my base stronger. I would have never said this to you. But I think the level of love now is far greater than when we won.”

— President Trump, quoted by Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie in their new book Trump’s Enemies: How the Deep State Is Undermining the Presidency, on special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

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.”


Trump Has Attacked One in Five GOP Senators

1 in 5

Chris Cillizza: “By my count, Trump has personally attacked 11 senators — or, roughly, 21% of the entire 52 person GOP conference between his time as a candidate and his nine months in the White House.”


Trump Redefines ‘Presidential’

“With the exception of the late, great Abraham Lincoln, I can be more presidential than any president that’s ever held this office.”

— President Trump, quoted by Fox News.

Trump Goes ‘Ballistic’

We remember a calmer, wittier Trump from not so long ago,
But now he seems shaken, freighted by emotional cargo.
That’s why he went ‘ballistic’
And pitched a hissy fit,
Before heading off to the “winter White House” Mar-a-Lago.

A Tweet Too Far?

In Donald’s view, his Twitter account has never failed him.
It’s been his stalwart go-to whenever critics assailed him.
But Republicans cringe
When his tweets seem unhinged,
Like when he posts unsubstantiated claims Obama surveilled him.

Sometimes It’s the Reverse

The swaztikas are multiplying by ones and twos,
Jewish cemeteries are defiled, but there are no clues.
We don’t know who’s doing it,
But Trump says he’d bet it’s
Being done by none other than the Jews.

A Chillin’ Villain

Alarmed at the growing sense of unrest,
Trump seeks to blame some singular pest.
As he casts about for a villain,
He lights on one who’s chillin’.
It is Barack Obama who’s behind all the protests!

Who’s Got the Button?

Go nuclear!” said the Trump to McConnell,
If his SCOTUS choice the Democrats do throttle.
With bravado and bluster —
Poof! No more filibuster!
Let’s just hope Trump doesn’t lead by example.

No Enjoyment Entitlement

Trump looks back wistfully on his candidacy,
Before all these questions about legitimacy.
Between the media hacks
And the Democrat attacks,
A pouting Donald can’t really “enjoy” his presidency.
