“Because Trump”: Blowback

 

 

He remarks to adult film actress

Stormy (In Touch Weekly interview)

that he hopes all sharks die. Like-

to-like must not like the mirror.

 

“Donald Trump’s alleged hatred

of sharks has inspired people to

financially support international

shark charities.” Bring ‘em on!

 

Enter that other apex predator.

Enter the Great White. Enter

Hammerhead, Bullhead and

Angel, out for feeding frenzy.

 

When Trump is at Mar-a-Lago,

his winter White House, let sea-

to-lake rise with primordial jaws.

Time for your swim, Donald.

 

Sharks do so love to be petted.
