Forty-five hugged the wheel while he grinned

“You’re just careering around on your own, crashing into buildings and losing altitude, growling at the cameras and spewing nasty conspiracy theories, instead of offering a sunny smile, bipartisanship, optimism and professionalism.”

Donald, This I Will Tell You
-Maureen Dowd, Opinion, New York Times


Forty-five hugged the wheel while he grinned
And growled in a game of pretend.
“Vroom, vroom, I’m a trucker
like a real workin’ sucker!
Watch me drive my big rig ‘round the bend!”
