An “As We Begin Year Two of Trump” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

It has been quite a while since I wrote a political limerick. I’ve been like many other Americans, unable to suspend my disbelief that Donald Trump was elected President of the United States and hoping that I will awake from this nightmare and find that it was just a bad dream.

Russia-gate Limerick #5

by Joel Kravitz

Trump alleged that President Obama had a wiretap placed in Trump Tower. He has offered no proof. Just when you think that the White House can’t sink any lower, they always find a way. How long can this go on? I am beginning to think that the GOP is setting him up. They have what they wanted, the Presidency and a majority in both houses of Congress. Once they are done using him as a diversion and get their “rich get richer, poor get poorer” legislative agenda completed, they are going to toss him to the curb. I hope they enjoy their power while they have it, because we still live in a Democracy and in four years we’ll do it again and flip everything back. And all that led to this….

A “‘Honey, Rollover’ Days Are Over” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

women-protesting

Women will save America. That’s our only chance and they will come through. Women leaders will emerge and Democracy will work the way that it is supposed to, when it affects positive change where the greatest good is shared by the greatest number of people. Trump made a big mistake by turning his back on the women who put him in the office. He believes that the educated middle class women that voted for him support him, which is not the case. They voted against Hillary because they saw her as a “business as usual” scumbag politician. They closed their eyes, they held their noses and they voted for a business man who was exposed as an unusually vicious and unashamed scumbag.

An “A Dream Disappears And A Nightmare Reoccurs” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

camps

The Trump Administration is ready to take another shot at an immigration ban. The “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again” approach to business has worked for him and with no regard for the collateral damage that comes with the “if at first you don’t succeed” part (or comprehension of the scope of damage a government will cause versus a casino going belly up), Trump plows on with his anti-immigration policies and immigrant discrimination. He also took the time, or didn’t take the time until he could avoid it no longer, to denounce the rise of anti-Semitism and heinous anti-Semitic hate crimes, which are terrorist acts and need to be treated as such.

A “Standup Comedy Blocking Dummy?” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

https://t.co/BjVQ4GbqtF

The above link is to a Twitter post by former Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich. The post is a conversation between him and a former GOP congressman –

“I spoke w/ my friend, a former GOP congressman, who’s as worried as I am about Trump’s mental state & potential ties to Russian operatives.”

What then follows is a script of the dialogue. The former GOP congressman asserts that the Republicans are waiting for him to implode, but before he does, they are using his reality television behavior and White House circus as a smoke screen so they can ram through as much of their agenda as they can without that becoming a focal point of the media who is now hanging on Trump’s every word and act. After I read the script….it led to this….

A “Flip Flopping Presidential Mindset” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

A recurring theme both pre and post election has been Trump’s flip flopping on issues. I’m sure there are many people hoping that there will be a lot of that going on as he took some extreme stances to build enough of a constituency who voted for him. This constituency was built with a platform of lies and fear, the only rhetoric that could motivate a large disgruntled portion of the American people to vote for him. It wasn’t enough to elect him. He needed the large number of people who voted against Hillary Clinton. Those are the people praying for more flip flopping and his constituency is expecting him to make good on everything. The fact is that he is a flip flopper.

I was reading this article which may or not be fake news, as if I could tell the difference.

A “Could Trump Light The Way?” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I was thinking about our President Elect having his Orthodox Jewish son-in-law as one of his closest advisors and his daughter Ivanka having converted to Judaism when this popped in my head.

A “Trump Effect Economy” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

Things like Hope and Change drive markets. This election has left everyone hoping in one way or another and bracing for the change that lies ahead, especially because that change is in the hands of someone who is not a career politician, has chutzpah out the ying yang and charisma that is undeniable.
