Last week there was sudden proliferation of parodies of Trump. I laughed and laughed at this one which caught perfectly his drivel, meanness of outlook, active malice at the close.
Stopping by the Woods on a snowy evening:
I have a pretty good idea whose woods these are, believe me.
And let me tell you something, my people say he’s a complete nobody.
This guy lives in the village. So what if he sees me stopping here?
I dare him to sue me! I dare him!
And by the way, this snow is pathetic.
These are by far, the least downy flakes ever!
I hear they had to import them from Canada.
I don’t know. Maybe they did. Maybe they didn’t. We’re looking into it.
My horse – he’s the most incredible horse, seriously,
I have the greatest, the classiest horses –
My horse doesn’t even know what the hell we’re doing here.
The horses love me though. They do.
They’re always shaking their bells at me, it’s very loving.
It’s a beautiful thing.
Let me tell you something, these woods are an embarrassment.
They’re not dark. They’re not deep. They’re nothing. They’re for losers.
And I cannot wait to sue this guy.
I cannot wait to sue this guy.
The author is probably Rotting Post (gravator a cat with glasses assiduously reading)
Alas I am still worried this man could win. Richard Cohen began to look at Trump as so much entertainment "Now that it seems that Trump will lose." I'm not so sure.
So I interweave with the humor the dangers he represents beyond not seeing why we (US) should not use a nuclear weapon and not being against their proliferation. Importantly for anyone reading this blog, he would be "in favor of closing the Internet" under certain circumstances, indicated he will do what he can to rewrite libel laws (appoint judges to do this), revoked press credentials of the Washington Post, Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, Univision, the Daily Beast , the Des Moines Register and Politico. He shows no respect for law, the judiciary, has himself been involved in nearly 2000 law suits, bankrupts people, is under indictment for his fraudulent university, does what he can to pay as little wages as possible, smears judges when they come to a conclusion against his interests. Had a cease and desist order silence the man who wrote The Art of the Deal not to tell that Trump wrote almost none of it.
Here's Marcus Bales:
I write tremendous poems.
I'm a very good poet.
I write the best poems.
This journal needs great poems,
and I write them.
I went to top poetry schools
with top poetry teachers.
I am a very smart person.
Editors love my poems.
They publish my poems.
A few -- just a few --
editors do not publish my poems.
I want to hit them so hard.
I mean right in the face.
Especially the short ones.
And the women.
I guarantee you these poems are terrific.
They will be featured poems.
If they are not
it will just prove
this whole process is rigged.
The Post showed how Trump had been at work to prevent ingress, egress, reporting on the Tower he is building on Pennsylvania Avenue, where the old Post Office once was. He sued DC for "Civil Justice" (he likes to use Orwellian reverse speech, accusing others of what he is -- so Hillary Clinton is a "dangerous liar" when that's him). He didn't win but he'll be back. I remind my readers that he came out for torture, summarily ejects African-Americans from his rallies, called all immigrants criminals, wants to ban all Muslims from coming here and profile those here already, calls Roger Ailes a great guy after a class action lawsuit has been filed against him for decades of sexual harassment of women who work on his station. Trump says women who have abortions without asking permission (of whom? men of course) should be punished. While campaigning for the nomination, Tump called for protesters to be "roughed up" and "carried out on a stretcher," offered to pay the legal fees of people who assault protesters, deployed expensive private security to intimidate and remove protesters (one of his campaign managers has been assaulting people regularly). Recently he had protest signs outside Trump Tower in NYC destroyed. He screams at Hillary Clinton as untrustworthy, but will not release his own tax returned. Is it he has paid no taxes for years? How rich is he? He makes fun of disabled people, insults families who sons have died in these endless wars.
And one more:
As of this week: His numbers in the polls are down, and he is beginning to cry that if he doesn't win, the election is certainly rigged. Still he held a rally in Pennsylvania (where there are desperately impoverished places, no jobs, all industry long ago left) and 2000+ people showed up. Have you seen how Bernie Saunders's tweets exposed Trump's economic plan for what it is: an enormous gift to the top 1%. Read them here: Sander eviscerates Trump on trade and taxes: Trump's own business practices show how he regards working people. As fodder.
I've left out how he suggested that people who are "2nd Amenders" take justice into their own hands, what do they have these guns for? she is going to abolish this amendment. Surely they should act. The clear implication was Kill her. At long last the Secret Service has visited him and threatened him with arrest if he carries on like this.
