The Grand Deception: Trump at his rally in West Virginia



I'm one of you, Trump tells the crowd,

The coal miners who've lost their jobs.

He's one of them, so they cheer loud.

They think he isn't with liberal snobs.

Or the moneyed class who are  high-browed.

Or the rich white guys with whom he  hobnobs;

Not Trump... cognitive dissonance is allowed.

  • I think also he's the stink bomb they throw at the status quo, they just like to feel powerful and don't care who they hurt.
    I liked your rhyme.

  • In reply to Kathy Mathews:

    Thanks, Kathy. Yes, they'll like it until it gets too close to home.
