The Flam about Flynn? A pardon for him?

Trumped up is soon tamped down.

A pig and his trough are soon parted.

A POTUS today, pig shit tomorrow.

Loving pain, they love the devil.

The clown’s delusions breed confusion.

You can put an outsize necktie on a pig, it's still Trump.

Vote Trump once more and you'll never have to vote again.

All that is necessary for evil to flourish is MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.

Adrian, I like the ominous tenor of your pithy summation. Methinks it hits the spot.

Proverbs on the POTUS

The Drunk-on-Trump are Foxoholics

Trumpism's tribes are tacit traitors

Trump’s a tricked-out Skinhead

Trump’s amok, a feckless fuck

Trumpism tramples Truth

Trumpism is Sadism

Trumpism’s Tribes are Terrorists

Trumpism treats Toddlers like Turds

Trumpists War with Fecklessness

Default Nineteenth-Century Con Man

Captain Simon Suggs says, “It is good to be shifty in a new country,”

And POTUS (President Of Tacky Ugly Shiftiness) is a big fan.

Weaponized Words

He shoots his mouth off frequently,
targeting imagined foes
and critics with frivolity,
firing lies as his nose grows.

His soldiers march with grave demeanor,
repeating him in slavish thanks.
They’ll take a bullet for their Fuhrer,
Trump, his weaponized words blanks.


Agonic Aspirants

The agon of the geezers:
Both of them were pleasers,
Biden cool and white,
Sanders red and tight.

And our own poet laureate speaks truth to power in her final collection in that role...

Non-Stick POTUS

Teflon Trump
We’d like to dump
Rails from his stump
He’ll shoot a chump
And if a clump
That’s Anti-Trump
Attempts to bump
Him on his rump
That’s wide and plump
The cops won’t jump
To third-degree pump
Teflon Trump

For a saying that best captures the harm done to someone by loving Donald Trump, I don't think I can improve on the self-idolising President's own words:

"I do want corruption, always."

“Believe me, I do want corruption
Always, for ever and ever.
Without it, no way I’d be POTUS today -
I couldn’t have done it, no, never.”
