The Swan Song of Donald J. Trump

After T. S. Eliot

 

         Sì, era bello,

          Che cosa con i criminale, le puttane, le pistole...

          L'Oceano Atlantico era qualcosa allora.

          Sì, avresti dovuto vedere l'Oceano Atlantico

          In quei giorni.*

 

I am a jealous god.  I’m not kidding –

Yod Hey Vav Hey?  Got nothin’ on me,

Though I chose His people, too –

To do my accounting.

 

I had to run for president,

They wouldn’t elect me sewer inspector in New York:

Rudy told me, setting down his fork –

I had not known so many were so smart.

 

You goddamn people –

If you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich?

My father used to say.  To Fred.

 

Some days it’s not worth rolling over in bed,

To turn on the TVs, or go Tweet in the head.

Eff ‘em.  Eff ‘em all, I want to say.

I can say that.

 

OK, I’m rolling over now.  Your president,

Anointed in the urine of Belorussian hoors

Upon the high altar of the Obamas’ platform bed,

In a hotel suite in Moscow,

On camera, yet.

 

The things I did for this country are secret,

So secret, you’ll never find them,

So secret, you’ll never believe it.

Talk about a Deep State – Me!

 

I ran the country like a business,

And I ran that business into the ground –

They call that a bust-out scheme in Jersey,

It’s like some unstoppable disease.

 

I kept my tiny pimp hand strong

(“Jared taught him that one” – Wrong!)

Left and right, The Donald fired ‘em,

Just like on TV.  I’m hardened  

And what I did suborn, I pardoned.

 

I kept the Mexicans off your lawn.

Black people?  Don’t make me yawn.

They’re better off than four years ago,

‘Cause you’re better off dead in America, amigo.

 

I ruled in God’s image.  It’s why

We’re never photographed together.

 

Now all America wants me dead:

The state is ugly, dark and deep –

I took too much Adderall to sleep.

 

In the room, the hookers come and go,

Talking sh*t about me, I know.

 

I gave a speech to Boy Scouts and their kin

There will be time, I said, for circle-jerks to end.

You think they listened?

You’re not listening.

 

I had a foursome once – me, Melania,

Little Saint Jeff and Ghislane.

It was boring.  Ghislane in her old age

Needs a boob job, and kept half an eye

On Melania the whole time.  I tried

To shove my raw, slouched shoulder in her way.

But couldn’t make her attention stray.

Now she dreams of that night, in her cell.

 

No one asks: If Virginia Roberts was so innocent,

Why did she take a job at Mar-a-Lago at fourteen?

Nobody ever asks that.

 

In the halls the Congress comes and goes

Be there.  Will be wild!  You know.

 

The hoors have hocked their hearts of gold, in vain,

The blonde hoors that arched their backs beside the windowpane,

They can find me at the bar now, club soda not champagne,

At Jerry Blavat’s Memories club in Margate –

On Margate Sands.

 

But there’s only so much Wooly Bully

A man can stand.

 

I will walk upon your beach, Atlantic City,

If the boardwalk needs more boards, you can tear them

From the doors and windows of my hotel-casinos.

 

At Scores, I hear the strippers whisper, each to each –

They had better not be talking about me,

Or my penis.

 

______

*Burt Lancaster in Atlantic City (1980)

Trump missed a real opportunity to burnish his legacy and unite the country by pardoning Biden for stealing the election.

Really Andrew, If Trump just issued a pardon and Biden just  accepted Trump's pardon, and just pulled out and conceded now. Maybe we could just go on with our lives!!

I still believe it's possible! But the way it is now. No way can I accept this!

As I stated in an earlier post, I have now returned my flag to the top of the pole where it belonged and the light will be on it tonight.  Though there is much left to be dealt with, I feel much more calm and relaxed already.  Since, hopefully this topic will now not be necessary and will die off or be subject to the same rules as the other topics and be moved out of the JFK section, I will take this opportunity to thank all who participated.  It has been cathartic for me to have this outlet.  Hopefully, now we can begin to migrate to more normalcy and traditional arguments without having to call each other names and decry anyone on the opposite side of the political (or other) spectrum an enemy.

Is that all that’s happening?

A lot of Lefty critics of the Democratic Party don’t see how often the Dem-left gets it’s way.  

As often as the Corporate Dem-center?

It’s an on-going battle of personnel and policy, susceptible to relentless grass roots push.

He passes on and Kamala becomes president, which I think was the plan all along. After all, she is a female Obama.

And in DiEugenio’s book that’s a bad thing.

Right on Cliff,  It's not over yet. Now we have to deal with Jim's wacko conspiracy theories!

Sounds like a Harris Navalny- Putin nightmare!!

Finally, the Trump presidency is over.

I felt a sense of relief when the inauguration was over with no violence, and over the former prez being gone.  Though I don't pretend to think everything is hunky dory now, much less peaches and cream.

There are plenty who are still PO'd about the outcome.

A few days ago I posted in this topic an article from lewrockwell.com urging conservatives to cease using Facebook and Twitter that were deemed too liberal and instead start using social networks set up in Russia that perform this service. It looks like this may well happen. Here is a posting on Facebook today by Tom Huston, author with President Nixon of the (still secret) Huston Plan and a conservative leader today:

"As we enter a new political era, it is a good time for me to winnow my Facebook "friends" list to family, people I know, and people with whom I have engaged in discourse on this site over the years. I think many conservatives are likely to find it prudent to exercise restraint in the use of Facebook or to exit the site entirely. I have a Twitter site I never use and intend to close down (Take that, Jack!). Several conservative-friendly sites are growing rapidly, but as Apple, Google and the Silicon Valley lefties who operate the backbone of the internet continue their jihad against conservatives (in Left speak: "haters"), conservative sites are going to be shut down by American (in name only) companies and will be dependent on Russian service providers to stay on the web. That will be the ultimate irony: Americans will be dependent on Putin to protect our First Amendment rights against Twitter Jack, Zuckerman, Bezos and the faceless Tech Gods who aspire to govern our lives."

I know it's hosed by Jim's favorite actor but if you skip over him there are some fine, even inspiring performances in Celebrating America.  Other interesting asides as well.  In particular I recommend:

16:20  Bon Jovi, Here Comes The Sun, on a dock in the ocean.

22:00  Yo Yo Ma, Amazing Grace.

40:00  Foo Fighters, hang with Dave Grohl, they rock.

1:03:00  John Legend, at the bottom of the steps of the Lincoln Memorial.

1:12:00  Tyler Hubbard and Tim Mc Graw, Undivided.

1:21:30  Demi Lovato, Lovely Day.

Fireworks.  Quite a Grande Finale.

.Doug, I was going to ask you in your "Profiles on Spartacus Thread", you talk of the Tom Huston and his Huston Plan which Nixon at least partially implemented, which sounded rather ominous,"The Huston Plan gave new domestic and international powers to the intelligence community, including break-ins, domestic surveillance, and surreptitious entries. It remains classified "Top Secret'

I was going to ask you at the time  if you knew which parts were implemented. So Huston is the originator of a plan that greatly increased surveillance on both foreign subjects and our own citizens. Yet now here he sounds like the ultimate Libertarian , actually threatening to leave Facebook and Twitter though he admittedly doesn't use them much because I assume he's upset at the action they've taken against Trump and Parler and this "Jihad against Conservatives "to go to of all places  Putin's Russia. You see the contradiction. Can you straighten me out on where this guys at?
