Our president tweeted: “As I have stated strongly before, and just to reiterate, if Turkey does anything that I, in my great and unmatched wisdom, consider to be off limits, I will totally destroy and obliterate the Economy of Turkey (I’ve done before!)”
The plot I just hatched
With my wisdom unmatched
Puts the Kurds at great risk.
But I reiterate
That my wisdom is great,
And Turkey must fear for its fisc.
Should this help the Islamic State,
My move still is great.
Under my hairsprayed thatch
Lies wisdom that no one can match.
Many of the Democratic presidential candidates have said that they would not allow their children to take a position akin to the one Hunter Biden had with the Ukrainian company. Their statements trouble me not because their progeny should take such corporate directorships, but because I find it of concern that the candidates think they have the absolute power to order their grown children around.
Remember those Boeing Max 737’s that crashed? A multiagency task force concluded that a poor regulatory system that relied heavily on Boeing to ensure the planes’ safety had helped compromise that safety. Crowds at Trump rallies mindlessly cheer when he proudly announces that he has slashed “regulations.” Perhaps these people who blindly trust corporations to do the right thing should have to fly in Boeing Max 737s.
I am no one’s pawn,
But I invite to the White House lawn,
Recep Tayyip Erdogan
He flatters me as he should.
He’s my friend; thus, he is good.
He may kill our allied Kurds,
But I will stop him with words.
But he will listen to me, this Erdogan.
If he does not—his economy’s gone.
The say it’s too late.
The Islamic State is
Resurging at this very minute
It won’t be my fault because
I know just how to spin it.
