"Jan 6? That was just a little 'tough love.'" Please come CAPTION the former Liar-in-Chief!!!

ex-PresiDented Trump is saying: "I'm telling you that my supporters on the 6th were good people, Laura, GREAT PEOPLE, in fact, and incredible patriots who LOVE the police. Actually, they were hugging them and kissing them in the Capitol Rotunda. It was extraordinary, a regular love fest! . . . In fact, the reason they won't show video of what really happened in the Capitol is that much of it is probably X-rated. . . . But fake news won't tell you that."

"It's simply outrageous!" . . . Please come CAPTION F&F's Brian Kilmeade!!!

Brian Kilmeade is saying: "Biden's speech last night was not simply unAmerican, it was anti-American. Most egregiously, he refused to give Donald Trump any credit for single-handedly creating two vaccines in record time. Instead, he constantly attacked Trump. . . . Can you imagine and American President who would denigrate and seek to undo all of his predecessor's policies? It's simply outrageous!"

"Believe me, if I was lying, I'd tell you." . . . Please come CAPTION ex-PresiDented Trump!!!

ex-PresiDented Trump is saying: "Georgia's bogus possible racketeering charges, possible charges on bank and tax fraud, money laundering, and felonious misappropriation of campaign funds are all fake news. Give me a break! Like I would lie to stay in foocie and then enrich myself illegally. . . . But I'm not worried. I'm coming out swinging. I'm asking all my followers to donate everything they can to my new Make America Great Again Trump Defense Fund even if they have to take reverse mortgages or cash in life insurance policies, or raid their children's education funds. . . . We'll prove in court that I'm no crook!"

"Don't you know how to take a jokeski?" . . . Please come CAPTION Vladimir Putin!!!

Vladimir Putin is saying: "Is really very simple: my enemy's chaos is my peace."


Above CAPTION based on the Wall Street Journal article that finds Russia is trying to undermine confidence in Western vaccines:

Portrait: Pillow Brain: Dry-Drunk in Mind-Rut . . . . Please come CAPTION Mike Lindell!!!

Mike ("I've got more feathers in my head than anyone!" ) Lindell is saying: "And the evidence I will soon be showing the Supreme Court will turn their little brains inside-out. They'll vote 100 to zero to not only reinstate Donald Trump to his lawful position, as President of the United States, but they'll give him a dozen more years in office. Then they'll round up all the Democrats, including those working for a voting machine company my lawyers won't let me name, and make them sign over their votes for the following three president elections. And then . . ."


Above satirical CAPTION (which is satire, or course, in case this Sewer might go after me) is based on the following article in Raw Story:

Whore of the Cultural Wars! . . . Please come CAPTION Tucker Carlson!!!!

Tucker ("I'm worried I left my flame-thrower on at home" ) Carlson is saying: "And now these leftest so-called child protectors say they are worried about negative representations of minority groups in a series of children's books instead of really worrying about child molesters who can't think of anything but children to molest, and harm, and keep down in the basement, and things to do with them. . . . It's so disgusting I can barely think about it, and I don't think about it when I can help it, when it's not keeping me up nights, or polluting my dreams, or slapping me in the face midday when I least expect it, or playing inb the background almost all the time, and getting louder and louder and louder. . . . I'm telling you here and now: these people are twisted!"


(All CAPTIONs at DU are satire in the spirit of SNL and Jonathan Swift.)

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).
