A birth gone horribly wrong. . . . Please come CAPTION The Donald!!!

Donald ("Trust me, I'm the President" ) Trump is saying: “The baby is born, the mother meets with the doctor, they take care of the baby, they wrap the baby beautifully, and then the doctor and the mother, probably over a couple glasses of wine (because now she can drink, and it's probably imported at tax payer expense) determine whether or not they will execute the baby if so and which dark ritual they want to use. . . . I don't think so."

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

Donald Trump is saying: "Listen closely to what I'm saying: I've got zero worries about Biden. None. Zilch. . . . Mainly because I've thought of over a hundred new nicknames for Old Sleepy Joe. . . . . How 'bout 'Liver Lipped Joe'? . . . Or 'Shoe-Salesman Joe?' . . . Or 'J.V. Joe'? . . . Or 'Joe the Cocker Spaniel '? . . . He won't know what hit him."

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "People say I'm pandering for votes, but I'm just telling the truth. I've got a plan I want to put in place after the 2020 election which will insure no United States citizen will ever have to pay taxes, ever again. . . . And Mexico will be more than happy to pay for it. . . . I can almost hear them writing the check as we speak. . . . That's just the facts!”

"I asked God and he agreed with me." Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PesiDented Trump is saying: "When I said there were fine people on both sides in Charlottesville, I was trying to be fair because I assume there were some fine people protesting the white nationalists."


Above CAPTION based on Trump doubling down on his racist comments after Charlottesville as covered by CNN:

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Why should I be worried about Joe Biden? . . . I'm not the least bit worried about Joe Biden. . . . I don't even think about Joe Biden. . . . Even when I'm talking about Joe Biden, I don't think about him. . . . I'm not in the least bit worried about Joe Biden. . . . Why do you ask? . . . Do you work for Joe Biden? . . . I don't even know who that is."


Above CAPTION based on Trump's reaction to Biden joining the Presidential race April 25, 2019.

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

PresiDented Donald ("A vote for me is a vote for God" ) Trump is saying: "Listen, we already have a Judiciary; it's one branch of the government. So why should The House, which I agree is another branch, have a Judiciary Committee in it? It seems the Congress wants more than one-third of the power. . . . So all I'm calling for is the end of congressional oversight, . . . just to be fair."

"Did I mention that I was white?" . . . Please come CAPTION that wacky racist Steve King (R-IA)!!!

Steve (rebuked by Congress for racist remarks) King is saying: “And, when I have to step down to the floor of the House of Representatives, and look up at those 400-and-some accusers, you know we just passed through Easter and Christ's passion, and I have better insight into what He went through for us.”


This faithful CAPTIONer took a vacation day and quoted King's actual blather, word for word, which can be found here at DU:


Sometimes there's no greater satire than the truth.

"I think I left my flame-thrower on at home." . . . Please come CAPTION Sean Hannity!!!

Sean ("Bullets give me wood" ) Hannity is saying: "I know it's been ten years since I promised to be waterboarded for charity, but dont't worry, I'm a man of my word. . . . Just all in due time."


Above CAPTION based on the calendar and this reminder on Crooks and Liars:

"I've put in a patent for air." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "That's not true. . . There's only one real way of polishing a turd. You've got to freeze it first. . . . The rest is a trade secret."

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).
