"News is a flirty business." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Geraldo Rivera!!!

Geraldo (The mustache with its own timezone) Rivera is saying: "Just because I defended the ability of men to make a little pass at women in the workplace, doesn't at all mean that I think women are lining up to tell their stories about me. . . . Why would anyone think that?"


Above CAPTION based on this bozo's tweeting in defense of Matt Lauer as noted in this story in Entertainment:


Here's the actual tweet:

Sad about @MLauer great guy, highly skilled & empathetic w guests & a real gentleman to my family & me. News is a flirty business & it seems like current epidemic of #SexHarassmentAllegations may be criminalizing courtship & conflating it w predation. What about #GarrisonKeillor?

Mr. Grifter meets Dr. Dementia equals The Perfect Storm. . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("A powwow with some very special people" )Trump is saying: "A lot of people don't know this, but they called it 'The Trail of Years' because it was so lovely it brought tears to everyone's eyes. . . . They absolutely loved it! . . . But the liberal professors all teach fake history."

"Singing like a sweet, little bird." . . . . Please come CAPTION Michael Flynn!!!

Michael ("On Thanksgiving, Turkey ate me!" ) Flynn is thinking: "Last package I got from The White House contained only dead canary. . . . Not even a note. . . Must have been about mine safety."

A blast from the past. . . . Please come CAPTION Michael Flynn on the campaign trail!!!

Micheal ("Just how does an actual pancake flip, anyway?" ) Flynn is saying: "And I want all you folks to know that I love this guy just like you love this guy. . . . I'd follow him through thick and thin. I'll stick by him always. . . . Hell, I'd take a bullet for this man! . . . You can mark my words."

"Is there a brain in there, or just horn?" . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("What's wrong with 'just horn'?" ) Hannity is saying: "And I am not exaggerating one whit when I say that if just one-hundredth of what we've discovered n the past several weeks and discussed here tonight is true, . . . then not only should Robert Mueller resign, but he should turn himself over to the authorities for having committed treason against The United States of America! . . . You don't have to exaggerate when you have the truth."


Above CAPTION based on the right wing's increasing attacks on Mueller as in this story from The Hill:

Please come CAPTION Moore supporter and former Republican candidate for president, Alan Keyes!

Alan ("God keeps screaming in the middle of my cranium" ) Keyes is saying: "Roy Moore's trips to the mall were obviously spiritual in nature. Wasn't it Jesus who said 'Suffer little children to come unto me'? . . . Well, these days Jesus would obviously have to go where the children could find Him, right? . . . Don't you see? . . . Or is the left-wing media too blind to understand scripture when it's staring you straight in the face???"

Mark (Limbo) Levin is saying: "I plan to maintain Fox's high standards for intelligent, in-depth political commentary as established by Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, and Bill O'Reilly."


Above CAPTION based on the story in Media Matters about Levin's past and up-coming duties at Fox:

"I hereby pardon this turkey, Paul Manafort." . . . Please come CAPTION Donald Trump!!!

Donald ("My hemorrhoids are gold plated" )Trump is thinking: ""So, McMaster is the second cabinet official to call me a moron. He even said, I had the intelligence of a kindergartner. . . . Wait til he finds the doggy-poop I put in his lunchbox!"
November 20, 2017

"Always checking which way the wind blows." . . . Please come CAPTION Fox's Howard Kurtz!!!

Howard ("Telling the truth is too easy" ) Kurtz is saying: "It's obvious that Trump's accusers were flat-out lying. He won the election, didn't he?"


Above CAPTION based on the following Media Matters piece with a healthy clip:


CAPTIONing sometimes can be embarrassingly easy. This time I only had to tweak and snip the text which actually read as follows:

"Why resurrect that story which was, you know, he's denied it. He's called these women horrible liars. There's certainly a debate about about whether they should be believed. There's about a dozen of them. But we had an election after that. And he won."

"Dad said I was sharp as a mash-potato sandwich. You just can't fool me!" Come CAPTION Donald Trump!

Donald ("Every time I start thinking, I smell rubber burning. Why is that?" ) Trump is saying: "Listen, there are lots of reasons my case is different than Franken's .. . . With my accusers, hell, I never even knew them. . . . Besides, it was different back in those days, in many cases even expected. . . . And did you take a look at them? Back then they looked even worse. . . . Another thing, I know it's not polite say but in many cases, they actually really wanted it. . . . Maybe they were mad when I turned them down. . . . I mean, take your pick. . . . But the kicker is this: . . . Franken admitted it! . . . You can't fool me with those questions. . . . They're just words."

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
