Pelosi's response to Trump's State of the Union was poetic justice



“’He shredded the truth so I shredded his speech,’ Pelosi told House Democrats during a closed-door caucus meeting, according to sources in the room. Like she did the night before, she called his 90-minute address ‘a manifesto of mistruths.'”              [THE HILL]


After being acquitted when we did impeach.

He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech.

Though regret’s opportunity was within reach,

He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech.

So he’ll just keep on lying, our trust he will breach.

He shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech.

Still I’ll pray for his soul as the Good Lord did preach.

He  shredded the truth, so I shredded his speech.

  • Darn problem is that as some right wing pundits predicted, 19 senators and now this gave the Orange Troll an opportunity for a victory lap. We hope that there is less than one year left of this, but it will take a couple of thousand voters in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin coming to their senses and realizing those were lies. On the other hand, we had the predictable mess up in Iowa and it appears that only Bloomberg wants votes in Illinois. But (to go back about 18 months) I'm surprised that he isn't running ads saying "despite that there is not longer a sweetened beverage tax, don't buy your fat grand babies Big Gulps."

  • Thank you. I wasn't watching, but I saw the photos later, and I didn't think of shredding the truth -- I thought of the old prank of tearing paper behind someone's back. It sounds remarkably like tearing fabric. Wait, that would mean someone paying attention to someone else... sorry!

  • I like your ballad, with its repeated refrain. I wonder if you could put it to music and call it The Ballad of Pelosi's Revenge. You might even include in it some lines of speculation on the prayers Nancy said for Donald's soul.

    If nothing else, it could be a great campaign song this fall.

  • Thanks jnorto, for your comments and for suggesting some more lines. I followed your advice, yet again. Thanks.
