TRUMP: A Verse about the Worst EVER Presidential Nominee


I do try to remain apolitical on Wild Rose Reader--but I have had it with the Republican nominee for president. So, I wrote a little verse about him. I hope he doesn't sue me!




 TRUMP: A Verse about the Worst EVER Presidential Nominee

With roadkill for hair and a pumpkin-colored face,
Could Donald Trump WIN the Presidential race?
He’s braggart, a blowhard, a rich old buffoon
Who lives a sheltered life in his Trump Tower cocoon.
He’s a bigot…a racist…a misogynist—
And let’s also add “big fat liar” to the list!
Does a grabber…a groper…a tongue-down-the-throater
Really appeal to the American voter?

Funny...and horrifying that someone like this has come all the way to becoming the nominee of a major political party. Ugh!

I think humor is the best way to survive this election season--your buffoon in his cocoon made me laugh. Thanks!

Shudder...as a Canadian I have been watching to US elections with increased horror....a good reminder to try and find the humour in an overwhelming situation!

My favorite couplet:
"Does a grabber…a groper…a tongue-down-the-throater
Really appeal to the American voter?"
Hoping the answer is no!

Hee-hee! You nailed him on all of HIS issues. If only it weren't all true. Thanks for the laugh. =)

Excellent, Elaine! Couldn't agree more.
