Kellyanne Conway: smoke screen personified

  How uplifting Trump’s speech was,  says  Kellyanne Conway. Uppermost are the people in the plans he has on way. Of course, she redacts All the truth and the facts And she’ll lie through her teeth till she quits or Trump’s gone ‘way.

Trump's Inaugural Address doesn't deliver

  The Inaugural speech Trump delivered was short And it was, I’m afraid  a  pedestrian sort. Much like in the vein of those in his campaign And lacking a memorable line to report.

Message to Putin: Stroke Trump's huge ego and he's your amigo

“If Putin likes Donald Trump, guess what folks, that’s an asset. Not a liability.”     The hacking by Russians of Hillary mattered. Her chances of winning were certainly battered. What was Trump’s reply When told Putin did try? Shocked? Furious? Outraged? No, flattered.
