"Maybe they weren't using the right prayers." . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Pence!!!

(Imagine picture of Pence at the podium in the Situation Room presser yesterday or two days ago.)

Mike ("I rode a tricycle until I was seventeen" ) Pence is saying: "The President is exactly right when he tells the Democrats not to politicize this, . . . but knowing them I can tell you right now they won't listen to a thing. . . . Trust me when I tell you that they'd rather see millions die, families destroyed, and the American economy in severe depression rather than see our great President Donald Trump reelected. . . . Let's keep politics out of this entire matter!"

"I'll double-down on you in a New York second!" . . . Please come CAPTION Presidented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "No, No, what I said was exactly so. It was perfect! Coronavirus (or COVID-19 as I call it) may well disappear like magic, or in terms of science, the air clears in spring and business begins to get better all over the place. . . . It only stands to reason. . . . But then again things could get worse for a while. . . . Regardless, we've gotdeades of expertise and competenca. . . . all the bases are covered, as they say in football. . . . Believe me."

Profiles in Perfidy, X. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Listen, if the election is stolen from me, whether by illegal voting and fraud, or by something completely beyond my control, like this so-called Coronavirus (which if you ask me is the biggest fraud of all time), I've got the right to fight back any way I know how!"

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "My critics would like you to think this administration's reaction to the Coronavirus has been inadequate, when in fact we're right on top of it. . . . Everything is under control. . . . In fact today I'm ordering that dictionaries be stripped of the word 'pandemic,' which is really an ugly word if you think about it, and that no government official use the word in public. . . . Now you just watch, the Democrats will say that this will be ineffectual or even counter-productive, . . . but then they'll say just about anything to get elected."

Profiles in Perfidy, VIII. . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!


PresiDented Donald ("You want I should take a dump in this punch-bowl?" ) Trump is saying: "I simply don't believe in pandemics. . . . I didn't even know there was such a word until yesterday. . . . 'Pandemic' sounds like the name of a blockbuster movie, . . . but movies don't kill people. . . . There's nothing to worry about."

Profiles in Piss-It-All-Away! . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "How to deal with the Coronavirus? . . . Keep an extra tissue around. . . . You know, they come in those handy little packs that can fit into your pocket. . . . Nothing to worry about. . . . By the way, I learned all this from Michele Bachmann."

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

PresiDented (Fingers-crossed) Trump is saying: "Listen, smart-ass, I never asked for foreign assistance no matter what you in the fake news, like lying CNN, reported. . . . I can't help it if they look at our country and our elections and realize just how terrible the Democrats are, . . . Well, if they want to interfere, that's their business. It's none of ours."

"I'm saving my last breath for my greatest lie." . . . Please come CAPTION Rush Limbaugh!!

Rush Limbaugh s saying: "What the drive-by media won't tell you is that you can't die of Fentanyl if you don't O.D. on it."


As part of his word spew, Limbaugh actually said this (paraphrased to make the joke clear) as seen at Crooks and Liars:

"I've got my back." . . . Please come CAPTION Richard Grenell, the new acting DNI!!!

Richard Grenell is saying: "I've already told the President how we can save a ton of money. . . . We've been spending a fortune defending against enemies on, and here I quote, 'the other side of the world.' . . . . But since the world is flat, we might as well have been throwing that money away, so . . ."

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).
