The Shady Gray Lady

 

 

The NY Times said she had treated Trump unfairly.

Then The Gray Lady issued a kind of apology.

Thereafter I read

What her headline said:

The US faces “the reality of a Trump presidency.”

 

 

 

 

 

Orange Country

 

 

Republicans didn’t need to use a syringe

To get a lotta juice from a shrinking orange.

In fact, the down-home region

Squeezed Hillary R. Clinton,

And presented her with a difficult challenge.

 

 

 

 

 

The White Working-Guy

 

 

The white working-man is highly dissatisfied

About frequently being labeled as a bad guy.

He is not a victimiz’er

But he is a realiz’er

That liberals are behind a racial lie.
