Okay, Mister My Pillow Guy, time to pony up and begin producing face masks!

Just what are all these MAGA-heads who own companies doing?

If they love America so much, why aren't they helping in this hour of critical need?

We really ARE living in a comic book!

I've suspected such for several years. The entire Trump-Gotham City shtick was painted a bit thick, garish, bold but juvenile. The rallies were designed for a two-dimensional world, a world of binaries, only one of them right. His press conferences were stuffed with half thoughts and vicious asides. His sidekicks (Bannon and Miller, esp.) are right out of Marvel casting. Etc., etc.

And then today's tweet has made me certain.

"I watch and listen to the Fake News, CNN, MSDNC, ABC, NBC, CBS, some of FOX (desperately & foolishly pleading to be politically correct), the @nytimes, & the @washingtonpost, and all I see is hatred of me at any cost. Don’t they understand that they are destroying themselves?"

How do we get out of here????

"What's the big deal? You can't even see it!". . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!

PresiDented ("I'm the genius of our times" ) Trump is saying: "Let's pass this shit around, Matt. . . . The sooner everybody gets it and gets well, the sooner the market will rebound."

"It'll be great for morticians and funeral directors." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "But then I realized that we have the best scientists and labs in the world. . . . I mean, why should we take testing formulas or procedures from anyone else like a China or the World Health Organization? . . . Besides the delay bought us valuable time to think things through without a panic like you're seeing in other countries."

"We're all after the real facts about the virus." . . . Please come CAPTION Lindsey Graham!

Lindsey Graham is saying: "President Trump has got the best experts in the world working on the virus and our response while doing his utmost to safeguard the American public. I can assure you that he is taking this crisis with the utmost gravity and giving it his complete and undivided attention."

"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!"

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).
