    Loyalty or Else – {limerick}

    It’s clear that you have to be loyal

    to this orange-toupéed gargoyle, -

    - else his anger will roil

    and your day he’ll spoil

    by boiling your backside in oil.

    Ginny Thomas, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife, has been hired to do the purging…. that should solidify the unbiased Supreme Court, just like hiring Elaine Chao solidified Trump’s hold on the Senate… or Betsy DeVos’ hiring keeps Erik Prince’s offshore mercenary army on the ready. The mafia is a family business…

    Vile Values – {limerick}

    Trumpistas’ values are vile:

    They delight in their president’s style, -

    - and they don’t give a hoot

    for the people they loot

    for a plutocrat’s money pile.

    … Coda: – {3 beats/line}

    They delight in their president’s wiles

    as illicit tricks he compiles.

    At one point Saddam Hussein invited his top generals and advisors in for a little “let your hair down and tell it like it is” session. “Nobody here but the members of the inner circle,” he noted. “And we need the best advice we can get. Don’t hold back. Everything’s on the table. What are we doing wrong? Everything stays within this room.”

    Thruout the ensuing discussion he stayed silent, just nodded and took notes. Then, after everyone had spoken his piece, he had his harshest critics taken out and shot.

    Gee, and I seem to remember hearing a BUNCH of Reich-Wing talking heads whining that “Obama is trying to act like a Dictator”. So, where are those whiners NOW, when we DO have a "President"* that IS acting like a Dictator???

    Oh, that’s right… IOKIAFRDI

    Those levels are far from complete.

    Where do the “Trumplings” fit in — the Trump spawn and their mates? Also, some classifications seem to be missing: Churl, Executioner, Hanger-on, Hench-person, Hit-person, Jackal, Menial, Minion, Stooge, Sycophant, Thrall, Thrall, Torpedo, Underling, Vassal, Yes-Person.

    Maybe those will openly appear in his second term. The tentacles of influence even now squirm well past the White House itself, into the legislatures both federal and state — so to be accurate, those will have to be represented, too.

    Predictors’ Motives – {3 beats/line, then 4}

    re Pundits’ predictions re voting:

    Much is just Favorite-promoting, -

    - so’s to manipulate our choices

    {thus distorting us voters’ voices}.

    … F’rinstance:

    The “Center” versus the “Left”, -

    - so that Bernie’s of voters bereft,

    so the Centrists in this way might readily win.

    {[ The Center has done such ag’in and ag’in, -

    - which explains why the FatCats are fat and not thin. ]}

    I wonder if Trump refers to them as “peons” or “peed-ons?”

    Toles left out “slaves”

    (The one Trump most craves)

    Who cheer rants and raves

    Are cowards, not braves

    Trump’s backside they shaves

    And his [censored] they laves

    Let’s go hide in the caves!

    Trump ought to fire these flunkies and hire more snotty Democrats dedicated to “resistance,” playing “gotcha” behind the scenes and leaking to their friends in the liberal press.

    Not much of an exaggeration. Those cringe-making “all hail to Dear Leader” sessions are all you need to know about Trumpy. As Lincoln (tragically) said, “Nearly all men can stand adversity. If you want to test a man’s character, give him power”.

    The sad thing in this case is that we already knew Trumpy’s character. . . .

    Remember Drumpf’s first Cabinet meeting? Each member took a turn telling DFT how incredible he was and how wonderful it was to be serving in his cabinet. That, literally, was the entire meeting.

    Imbecile Trump the abomination is purging the government of the smart truth tellers. Now we have a government full of idiot liars who worship Trump thanks to Anti-American Republicans.
