The Mango Moron Cries Wolf
“There’s a good chance we’ll have to declare a national emergency to build the wall.”
Cheeto-in-Chief hysterically tweets
about renegade caravans.
His threats to declare
a national emergency to fund a wall
are the equivalent of crying “Squirrel!”
then watching distracted heads turn.
Craving the next drama,
he blusters, exaggerates, lies,
draws down troops from Syria,
reverses successful Obama programs,
rips up mutually beneficial agreements,
betrays allies by withdrawing from treaties.
As Rome burns to the ground,
Faux News trots out agent provocateurs
to shock, enrage, entertain.
Television talking heads
dictate policy, hijack attention,
tails wagging the dog.
