The Donald said he’d nominate a judge
Who’d vote to overturn Roe versus Wade.
He doesn’t want a fair and balanced drudge
And Donald kept the promise that he made.
Brett Kavanaugh’s opinions indicate
That he’s the man the Federalists have sought,
A judge who’ll help Neil Gorsuch vitiate
The reproductive choice for which we fought.
Republicans are trying to conceal
That Kavanaugh will do what Donald said.
To ban abortion is part of the deal;
At least that’s what the Donald’s base is fed.
We watched Brett block and parry, bob and weave.
We know his views; so why try to deceive?
Though, “…what you see and what you read are not what’s happening,” (1)
It looks like Trump’s administration is unraveling.
When some adviser writes an op ed saying Trump is nuts,
It shows at least (he) knows the truth, although (he’s) lacking guts.
The anonymity of criticism bugs Trump’s brain.
“Investigate the New York Times,” the Donald cries in pain.
The First Amendment guarantees free speech to one and all.
There’s no call to investigate, though Donald Trump may bawl.
But Trump says that Jeff Sessions ought to use the DOJ
To batter Donald’s critics and perhaps scare them away.
So, once again the Donald shows he does not understand
To prosecute a critic is not what he may command.
Trump said the issue now is national security.
He also tweeted, “TREASON!” That’s a clear absurdity.
To criticize the President is neither one of those.
It’s simply publishing that, “The Emperor has no clothes.” (2)
