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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Believe me, the last thing I want to do is make The Fourth of July a partisan event. It should be for all Americans. That's why I'd like to start out with a address about how Washington is supposed to work and would work, without traitors who want the worst for our country and how our country is under assault by an immigrant invasion, terrible trade deals, and the Democrats. Then we'll have some great marching bands who can spell our MAGA as they're walking down the street. Then some floats with a Miss MAGA crowned on the very last one. Then I'll introduce our great military and talk about how it was in tatters when I came into office before they march beneath giant MAGA balloons. Then I'll speak about the conspiracy that attempted a coup on this government before the fireworks. The show trials will begin on the fifth."

PresiDented Trump is saying: "I know exactly what I'm doing. . . . When I called for a strike on Iran, I knew I was going to call it back. . . . I planned it that way. . . . now they'll think I just-as-well-as-did-it and be really, really scared of me. . . . Then I pretended to think it was an accident or something, so they can shoot somebody's brother-in-law who nobody liked anyway, and come back to the table. . . . I then (like right now) I told you my plan so they'll know what a great planner I am and give us a great deal! . . . And, can you believe it, all my advisors say I'm crazy, . . . only not to my face."

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).
