“Covering the Trump administration is difficult because it requires disentangling three strands of its behavior: the normal, the incompetent, and the dangerous.

Present at the Destruction?

Is looming deconstruction
à la Veep or House of Cards?
It matters not when ruction
shatters peace and scatters shards.

“Stupid or nefarious?”
Regardless how it’s tagged,
this liar’s game could bury us
before the body’s bagged.
