Theatre of the Absurd Like an actor in a theatre of the absurd, there stepped onto the stage a horrid clown, an ego-maniac who makes his own staff clap for him and who fast is bringing a nation down. With just one month in office he’s done enough that in another country could get himself kicked out. Why some applaud him heartily I can’t comprehend! Of the fact that he’s a liar, there can be no doubt! A man who screwed so many with his own businesses is now in charge of US! How can this be? Admitting that he pays no taxes, yet we have to do it? He puts the rich above us all. Why can’t people see? He claims that more than any other president, he’s been on the cover of Times, and eleven is his number. Nixon’s number is at fifty-five. Does Donald think we are in his movie plot I think called Dumb and Dumber? Tweeting boasts from a phone that’s not even secure. For higher ratings for “Apprentice” he asks that people pray. Speaking to a nation about black history month, he seemed to think Frederick Douglass is alive today! He tweets how thousands of Syrian refugees were (by Obama) let inside our nation. In reality, two-thousand had got in. His only talent is exaggeration! He claims that the crowd for his inauguration was the largest ever. Oh REALLY? The picture that he tweeted of the big event was dated the day AFTER actually! Hanging up on leaders. That’s so presidential. Calling people names, like Rosie is so fat, Mexicans are rapists and “some, I assume, are good . . .” At least he’s just a president and not some diplomat! He uses words for women, like “a piece of ***.” I’m appalled women voted for that pig at all. And the big stupidity that many voted for is his huge ambition to build a freaking wall. He thinks Mexico will pay? It will bite us in the butt! Their tunnels still will run beneath the ground. Keeping even citizens from returning to their homes and fighting court decisions. Is this leader even sound? His tweets concerning terrorists in Paris at the Louvre turns out it was a MALL named Louvre and some Egyptian guy! He blames the airports’ chaos, brought on by his ban, on Delta’s bad computers. Another Trumpy lie. In some White House position called “public engagement” he put a foul-mouthed woman from his Apprentice show Three alumni of Goldman Sacks. That is all we need! Sara Palin cried cronyism. For once, SHE’s in the know! The list of his absurdities go on and on and on. Comedians should be having a heyday! However, it’s MY country and I feel quite concerned. Sure wish that crazy clown would go away. This theatre of the absurd will run indefinitely until the audience can stand no more. Stand up and boo, people; throw apples at his head. His acting sucks; kick his butt out the “stage right” door! Written Feb. 10, 2017

"Tweeting boasts from a phone that’s not even secure. For higher ratings for “Apprentice” he asks that people pray. Speaking to a nation about black history month, he seemed to think Frederick Douglass is alive today!" That stanza is on point! I really like this poem.

Thx for pointing this out to me; it gets more to the anger side of this absurdity. Still, what scares me is that, of the nearly half who voted for him, 86% give his performance to date a high rating; and vice versa. This absurdist position appears to be about 50% entrenched, which is how we got into this clownish mess. So, what does that say about us as an economic and political society? What is missing in our health and wellness education?

Andrea - I read this a few times and detected a subtle undercurrent of being slightly irritated with Mr Trump :-) (sorry - us Brits are great at understatement). The picture of the kids made me sad - it's unfortunate they are dragged into the election circus. Loved the poem - both funny and deadly serious. All the best! Mark :-)

Andrea, this is a good poem. Congratulations. The only reason i did not place it higher, was probably that I have a little bit of Trump fatigue. Many wishes, Kai

The problem with creating enemies is eventually you're surrounded.

In my lifetime, there has never been a President that had this much animosity from the people. George W was close, but truly, he was just Cheney's puppet. And this kind of heavy handed sensibility and unethical dealings concerning business interests is a blind trust of those innocent little Trump supporters who will for most of them wake up one day and realize Mom and Dad bent their minds toward a inhumane pretzel. Anyway, there is a lot of rhetoric surrounding this and time will tell the tale.

Never knew you to be so political before! This is a powerful and needed piece. Trump is in some trouble now - maybe - hopefully - he won't last for four years Peace & Love Matthew Anish

When I read the contest title, my mind went exactly to this subject. I won't have to write anything because you have said it all and so well. Absurd, tragic, dangerous.

We have seen many examples in history of this kind and most of the time have disastrous conclusions! If history repeats itself this will not be bad for your country alone but for the whole world! May God help dear, Andrea!

The reason they hate the affordable care act, AKA obama care, is that it is generally paid for by people with more money than those who receive the care. It's not the health care they hate, it's who is paying for it. That speaks volumes about what is going on in our land.

La piece de resistance! I love it! I think the problem we have is fueled by inequality, and the downtrodden people who should know better believe he will act in their best interest. Also, he has bigots and some very rich people with no heart helping him. This is a very bad recipe for our country. It will not play out well. I cry for the poor immigrant families he will split in his deportations. Andrea, you are a gem.

This is so good its true, a dupe like him should not be running a sideshow let alone a country. I live next door and I'm scared sh*tless of what he might do. Good luck in the contest.
