Hi Andrew,

The thumbnails do become large when I click on them...but I'm probably just being a dumb blonde; I don't 'get' what they're trying to tell me, so I've missed the point, sorry.

Jayne

Oh, I see.

The first one (On Christ) is meant to be Trump's perspective on religion. The second one (On History) the same. They're internal monologues. They probably make more sense in the series, but oh well.

Default Even Stupider, Bigly!

POTUS, this is Stupid Stuff

“POTUS this is stupid stuff:
You spout your nonsense, always rough,
And don’t know very much, it’s clear,
When you tweet mocking with a sneer.
That you are such a slimy rake,
Gives us a stomach and headache.
Barack Obama, whom you dread,
Just shakes in wonder his wise head;
The rest of us are nervous now
Because you lie and pitch Jim Crow.
With some good luck my little rhymes
Will chronicle your White House crimes.”


From and after AE Houseman LXII

Trying to create a next world war...
