A Limerick A Day


US president Donald Trump with National Enquirer publisher David Pecker

David Pecker, once Trump’s stalwart friend
Under pressure has started to bend
Now he’ll tell a tale
To stay out of jail
For it seems every bromance must end

    But… But… Dark State and drain the swamp and… and….#Qanon.

    What a sorry sack of sleaze Trump his own band of swamp rats are.

          They’ve been on a road to their own self destruction for years.

          Trump is just a symptom of that.

            Rubbish-LA and NY are the cultural,style and music capitals of the world.The art scene in LA is thriving,lots start ups have chosen LA over Silicon Valley,the quality of life is unrivaled.NY is booming,still finance capital off the world,Hamptons packed with two hour waits last night at restaurants.
            As someone who can live / work pretty much anywhere there’s nowhere I’d rather live-Irl simply doesn’t have sufficient capital or an industry in my field,to be a option it’s too small in so many ways.

            As someone who grew up there and isn’t just revelling in economic boom (*stares at Johnny*), yes, the US has always been like this. Always. This is America’s ugly mug, dragged out blinking and swearing into the light. There’s endless beauty in the states, but they also live on a completely different planet.

          I think the Republicans have become morally bankrupt. Power at any cost.
          I think the racial divide is huge.
          Any advances made by Obama have been mashed. None of his mistakes have been rectified.

          I just think that it’s tipped into a moral abyss. Of course there are good people, of course they’ll fight the good fight. But the evil underbelly has reared its ugly head. And it’s stronger than many (certainly I) knew.

            I don’t disagree with you on a lot of those points and certainly things have taken a major turn for the worse since trump was elected, but living here I can tell you that his impact is not as huge as it might look from the outside. It definitely does depend on where you live, I live in the northeast where we don’t have quite the same level of racial inequity and gun madness that you can see in say the mid west and south in particular. As for the republican party they have been morally bankrupt since the nixon days and in many ways the democrats are not much better. There is however a growing possibility that the democrats will take control of one of the houses of congress in the November elections which would help to rein in trump to some extent and may help to change the “mood music” somewhat.

            Thank you! My take on it is purely via news: not from Americans themselves. My husband was in Washington DC recently and met with quite a few DoJ people and they had no idea how foreigners perceived them: they were, he felt, broadly pro Trump on the drain the swamp thing.
            I was listening to a podcast about George Bush Senior losing his cool when the NRA decried the Feds way back when and was thinking that as corrupt as they might have been, there was a line. That line has retreated.
            I hope you’re right; you obviously know more than I do.
