Triumph Tower

ON INAUGURAL EVE

On Inaugural Eve high up in Trump Tower, 
The Donald reflected on his newfound power.
The conservative masses had come out in force, 
And delivered a victory that would chart a new course.

The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes, 
The media lied to them. What a surprise!
They had been promised a Hillary win,
But the criminal Clinton took a blow on her chin.

And though from all corners celebrities flew, 
They made no impression, for they hadn’t a clue.
They talked about climate, racism, and such,
And stories they told showed they didn’t know much.

The fake news and ignorance came at great cost, 
And they can’t understand all the reasons they lost. 
They blame it on Comey and Bernie and Vlad,
But fail to acknowledge the one who was bad.

Yes, Hillary Clinton, in many ways flawed, 
Was her own biggest hurdle toward getting the nod. 
The campaign exposed her corruptness and greed,
And her speeches were punch-less as ten dollar weed.

So out in the streets there arose a great clatter, 
It was Soros-paid rioters and Black Lives Matter. 
With cities to pillage and windows to smash, 
They knew not the issues, but wanted the cash.

Eight years of Obama had given them cause, 
To expect a replacement of their Santa Claus. 
But soon the protestors will all feel the pain, 
When the wheels fall off of their old gravy train.

And now all the snowflakes are riddled with fear, 
Upset and offended by all that they hear. 
The cocoa and crayons may help for a while, 
But fact-based reporting will soon cramp their style.

At first I supported, and voted, for Cruz, 
In the end, I would vote for whomever they’d choose. 
He wasn’t my first choice, but soon I would cede,
The one they call Trump is the one that we need.

The Champ!

I saw him on TV in front of a crowd,
He spoke about veterans, it made me feel proud. 
He spoke about energy, safety, and jobs, 
Taking us back from the Washington snobs.

He was dressed in Armani, all tailored and neat, 
And the Brunos he wore made his outfit complete. 
For a man of his vintage, he seemed very fit,
And he looked presidential, I have to admit.

His eyes glowed like embers, his smile was the best, 
And his hair was the color of my old hunting vest. 
His love for this country was on full display,
And his actions spoke louder than his words could say.

He thanked all his voters, and before he was gone, 
Saved thousands of jobs while Obama looked on. 
The fate of this country left nothing to chance,
So, he filled out his cabinet weeks in advance.

The men he had chosen were of the same mind, 
Let’s set the bar high, and not lead from behind. 
He picked up his phone as he rose from his seat,
With a flick of his finger, he sent out this tweet; 

"Now Mattis! Now Kelly! Now Sessions! And Pruitt! 
On Perry! On Flynn! You’re the ones who can do it.
Start lifting restrictions; start building the wall, 
Now dash away! Dash away! Dash away all!” 

The roar of his audience rose from the stands,
He kissed all their babies and shook all their hands. 
He answered their questions and calmed all their fears,
Till they knew it would be a fantastic four years. 

Then he jumped in his limo, and off to his jet, 
A fellow the Leftists won’t soon forget.
He sent one more tweet as the evening expired; 
"Happy Inaugural to all, 
and, OBAMA,
YOU’RE FIRED!

Welcome home, Mr. President!

    The snowflakes were shell-shocked with tears in their eyes
    The media had lied to them . . . ‘What a great surprise
    They had been promised a blowout a criminal Hillary win
    But instead ole criminal Hillary took one right on the chin

    From all corners celebrities took their far left cue
    Telling the deplorables we’re far smarter than you
    In their high-horse bubble, with no working-class clue
    They tell us all we must follow their out of touch view

  4. Many of Trump's detractors are saying "Trump is not my President"; including members of Congress sitting out the Inauguration.. If he isn't your president then why don’t you leave the country and renounce your citizenship.?

    You petulant people can keep up that mantra if you'd like but it won't change the fact that he is The President. Every president-elect is entitled to a peaceful transfer of power; including Trump. It is something all Americans should celebrate.....even if your choice lost. Any obstruction or obfuscation or threat to disrupt is UnAmerican.

  5. With just 37% of Americans approving of PEOTUS Trump it is going to be very hard if not almost impossible for PEOTUS and conservatives to move the republican/conservative agenda forward. They have a tough hill to climb.

    63% of Americans are either very skeptical or completely disapproving of PEOTUS. His approval trend has been steadily going south.

    He has a significant PR problem with a majority of Americans. Perception is all important in politics. Trump needs to work on his integrity and character.

    It is unlikely that effort will be forthcoming.

    1. Please stop posting Leftist Propaganda at this blog. We recognize it for what it is, do not respect it, and do NOT to want to see it here.

      Unless you have something friendly, congenial, interactive, and worthwhile to say, I'd advise to go peddle your papers elsewhere.

    You are whistling past the graveyard....Trump has a majority in both the House and Senate....the dems are powerless.

    1. As I just said above, albeit in more decorous terms, "CAN the BULLSHIT. It's not welcome here."

    1. I have no idea who Tony Olson might be, but soon after TOM shared this with us in a more rudimentary form, someone else gave a link that credited Tony Olson with authorship.

      Well, you know me. I just HAD to tweak it a bit to improve the flow and to make it appear more pertinent to Mr. Trump's Inauguration. [It had appeared originally on December 23, 2016 as a CHRISTMAS EVE piece.]

      At any rate, it's a VERY clever, VERY well-written piece, and the adjustments I made were strictly minor. If I knew how to contact Tony Olson, I would write both to praise him and to thank him.

      Those of us who do this sort of thing rarely-if-ever get smooch as a scintilla of recognition or appreciation. We don't write to get praise, of course, but I have to admit it sure feels good on the rare occasions when praise is offered.
