Free Beer for the Kids! . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "And tax cuts are just the tip of the iceberg. . . . We're also going to make NASCAR races and Country Western Music shows free, and give out bump-stocks to anyone who asks for one, and we're going to put in RV trails in national cemeteries and give out free MAGA gear on the Washington Mall along with free beer for the kids, and . . . well, I'm only getting started. . . . But to answer your question: No. The November election has nothing to do with it whatsoever."

Profiles in Crazy, IX . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Don't worry. If I want you to know, I'll tell you, okay?" ) Trump is saying; "I am certainly not trying to give the Saudis cover after this so-called Khashoggi affair, I just reported that some people say he had suicidal tendencies and went into the Saudi consulate to make them look bad when he finally decided to do it. . . . I'm just laying that out there, not giving Saudis any cover, most strongly not."

Devin ("Ol' Numb N*tts" ) Nunes is saying: "Chris, I can honestly say I've never thought of myself as a hero, even though the President said I should get the Presidential Metal of Freedom. . . . I just thought I was doing something any outraged citizen with great resolve and courage would do."

Profiles in Crazy, VIII . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Empathy is wasted on the needy" ) Trump is saying: "You bet, if we determine Saudi Arabia ordered Jamal Khashoggi, the so-call journalist on the fake newspaper, murdered, even though he wasn't a United States citizen and I'm a little suspicious about why he was let in in the first place, I mean isn't there something really bad, I mean like really bad in his past? . . . Well, maybe not. We're looking into that. . . . and into all our immigration policy. . . . But to answer your question, if we determine that the Saudis had him murdered, and it's in not by any means yet certain, just so you understand, . . . well yes, we'd be angry."

"My favorite philosopher is Kanye West." Please come CAPTION The Kan and The Don!!!

Kanye (Ol' Superpowers) West is saying: "Look here, Mr. President, right here, the next Air Force One, a hydrogen jet one of the guys in the hood came up with. He's been to college. This is just a drawing but, . . . I mean, only the best for my best for my President!"

Donald ("Boy he can carry on!" ) Trump is saying: "That's spectacular, is what that is. . . . I'm putting NASA right on it. . . . It could mean billions, . . . and the jobs. . . . If you're right Kanye, and there's no reason to think you aren't, I'll give you the Nobel Prize!!!"

Profiles in Crazy, VII . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("And make that extra sauce as well" ) Trump is saying: "It's only common sense: if you have more prisoners, you'll have to have more private prisons, and more private prisons means more jobs for guards, and staff, and such. . . . But just you watch: the Democrats will once again argue with what's logical. . . . It's in their blood."

Profiles in Crazy, VI . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

Donald ("I'm not nuts, my brains are" ) Trump is saying: "Are you guys kidding?. . . First you ask for an F.B.I. probe of Kavanaugh then when I give you an F.B.I. examination, you want more. . . . Listen, I instructed the F.B.I. to be thorough and even increase the recording capacity of their tip-line by 100%."

Profiles in Crazy, V . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

PresiDented Donald ("Women and children first, but after me" ) Trump is saying: "Just how am I mocking the victim when I ask the real questions about Dr. Ford. . . . All I said is that her memory was like a dementia patient's. . . . Not one word about her probably trolling parties, or lselling her virginity to the highest bidder on night, or that she really wanted it from Judge Kavanaughand but he wouldn't do it, so that's why she made it up . . . She was angry. . . . But not one word of that. . . . If you look at it right, I'm really helping her get rid of this traumatic false memory. . . . I've always been a great supporter of women. . . I've often said . . . (blah, blah, blah)."

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).
