Donald at the Bat – Day 1104, Dershowitz

Day 1104, Dershowitz


Professor Alan Dershowitz,

Defending Trump, is picking nits.

“Abuse of power is no crime.”

Most scholars think he’s lost his wits.


“Abuse of power is no crime.”

Ridiculous, but yet sublime.

Republicans get their excuse

To let Trump off just one more time.


Republicans get their excuse,

Though Alan’s reasons are abstruse.

McConnell’s plan is to acquit

And, thereby countenance abuse.


McConnell’s plan is to acquit.

The facts don’t matter one damn bit.

So, let the Democrats throw fits.

(Mitch does not fear Inferno’s Pit.)


Yes, let the Democrats throw fits

And, never mind what Trump commits.

Lord Acton said that power corrupts. (1)

Consider Trump, says Dershowitz.


Lord Acton said that power corrupts,

But Dershowitz, now interrupts

“Who cares if Trump abuses power?

“Who cares if Adam Schiff erupts?”


“Who cares if Trump abuses power?

“So what if that tastes somewhat sour?

“Abuse of power is not a crime,”

The Senate needs to take a shower.
