"Maybe you should have paid attention in math class." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Listen, it's like Florida's governor says, Governor DeSantis, a really great guy, and an awesome governor, he says we've counting tens of thousands ordinary flu and pneumonia deaths as Covid deaths . . . And Democrats have been encouraging that because they want me to lose. . . . So like there's really been less than 200 Covid deaths, . . . but of course you in the fake news media will never report that, will you?"


Above CAPTION based on a Tampa Bay Times item speculating on DeSantis's radical undercount:

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

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Liberals and Trump haters criticize me for playing golf when almost 100,000 people have died due to the pandemic. . . . But what they won't tell you is that I get some of my best ideas (ideas that could save America) while golfing. . . . Like what if we create these virus eating mosquitoes so they're all eaten or down with malaria? . . . . What if we changed its name from "virus" to "blessing"? Then it would be "the corona blessing" like some Catholic thing and everyone will want to have it. . . Imagine what I could come up with if I was doing 18 holes!"

Clown Wars: Barr and Trump will soon attempt to proseute former members of the F.B.I.

That's my prediction based on statements by Barr and Trump to the effect they they will investigate the Flynn prosecution &c.

They will do it in the midst of the pandemic to draw attention away from the President's "disastrous, chaotic response" to the current crisis.

They will also do it because the president is raving mad and getting worse

Will it work?

A cornered rat is never boring.

"Congress needs a hard spanking." . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Trump!!!

PresiDented Trump is saying: "Dr. Fauci won't be testifying before Congress because they're all Trump haters. . . . And some very good, strong people are saying it's criminal the way they, under the direction of crazy Nancy Pelosi, are politicizing this coronavirus. . . . Democrats want people to die so they can defeat me in November. . . . All they care about is socialism and getting rid of me. . . . Why can't they get to work on the virus? Why do they have to politicize everything all the time? . . . These people are sick."

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).
