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

PresiDented (Jellybean) Trump is saying, "And if the Democrats still won't give me funding for the wall, I'll close down the airports and banking system. . . . But don't worry: most people will blame Pelosi and the Democrats. . . . I've got this all figured out."

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

PresiDented (Never Enough Lies) Trump is saying: "Let me tell you about the time I went up against Rocky Balboa. . . ."


Above CAPTION based on nothing except Trump's tendency to lie, as he did about a pay raise for the military as covered by CNN:


(Actually going to Iraq is one of the few things I agree with concerning what this spud has said and done, so I should give him a "CAPTION pass" on this one, but he had to go and lie even here.)

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

PresiDented (Ol' Turd in the Punch-Bowl) Trump is saying: "Sure, little girl, if you want to believe in Santa Clause, that's your business. . . . After all, it's a free country."

"A market crash would be a GOOD thing. You'll see." Come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented ("A good bankruptcy cleans out the sinuses" ) Trump is saying: "Listen, try to listen to me for once, just once, okay?. . . . If the market crashes, the only way for the market to go will be up. . . . Are you against things getting better, the American Dream, and the miracle of Capitalism? . . . What the hell is wrong with you people anyway?"

Merry Christmas.

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

On the phone PresiDented Donald ("I've got mine. F*ck you and yours." ) Trump is saying: "I'm the most compassionate person in the world, Chris, probably in all history. . . But just think what a deterrent it would be to mount heads of illegals on those spikes!"

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

PresiDented ("I'm the only one whoever . . ." ) Trump is saying: "I don't know yet what I think about Indonesia. . . .

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

Donald ("Christ had it easy" ) Trump is saying: "Listen and listen carefully. . . . Do you know how to do that? . . . When I said I'd be proud to shut down the government and guaranteed I wouldn't blame the Democrats at all, I was being rhetorical which means saying something otherwise or opposite which should have been immediately obvious by the context! . . . Did you see Chuck laughing? He knew."

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "If the government shuts down it will be entirely due to the Democrats. . . They'll own it, as I've made abundantly clear over and over."


Above CAPTION based on nothing except what Trump is likely do after shutting down the government even though he claimed, on December 11th, that he would be "proud to shut down the government," as covered by The LA Times:

"Hillary should be well into her first 5-year stretch by now." Come CAPTION Fox's Judge Jeanine!!!

Judge Jeanine ("Let's just outlaw the Democrat Party and be done with it!" ) Pirro is saying: "I don't know who got to Flynn's judge. He should have raked the F.B.I. over the proverbial coals for its flagrant abuses and, frankly, felonious activities. . . . So it's obvious somebody got to Judge Sullivan. . . . Otherwise, it just doesn't make any sense. . . . Unless Q-Anon is right and it's all part of Mueller and Trump's plan to expose and eliminate the Deep State. . . . You know, that guy (or gal) makes more and more sense every day."
December 19, 2018

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


PresiDented Trump is saying: "Listen, Q. . . . I know it looks bad with 13 investigations and all, my family and closest associates facing multiple felonies, and a sealed indictment likely with my name on it, but it's all part of the plan. . . . Everything's running just as I and Mueller planned it, smooth as my daughter's baby tush. . . . We got The Deep State right where we want it! . . . They'll be squealing like pigs before next spring. . . . Get the word out, but on the q.t."

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).
