The Story So Far

I’ve been planning to start this ever since the Comedy US President was elected, waaaay back in the final years before The War. The problem was always the chorus: it had to be at least as punchy as “we didn’t start the fire”.  My Beloved came to my rescue with the final word of the the first line of the chorus, and everything else was just a matter of research and insanity. So much insanity! So many links!

The tune should be obvious.  Sing along!

August 2017

Fake news, WikiLeaks, alt facts, Spicer speaks,
No divestment, foreign payment, National Day.
Voter fraud accusation,  climate fact elimination,
Biggest crowd in all the nation, meet the CIA.
Bernhard Langer, ISIS plan, Bannon’s access, Muslim ban,
Foreign Service all resign, nominee announced online
Holocaust not just Jews, Frederick Douglass fresh news
Arnold’s ratings, nominating, Aussies on the hotline.

We didn’t pick the liar.
Now the news we’re learning is a bit concerning.
We didn’t pick the liar.
No we didn’t pick him, but we’d love to kick him.

Uninvited, Bowling Green, Flynn resigning, courts convene,
North Korea, don’t give me your fashion advice…
Budget? Fudging it! History will judge it.
Sweden last night, travel ban on ice.
Trans kids, arms race, just “Repeal and Replace”.
Wire tapping, Russian files, NATO payment, Rupert smiles,
Pence vote, tax return, no collusion, u-turn,
Sally Yates, Gorsuch waits, daughter’s no mere intern

Did he use gas or not, Mar-A-Lago costs a lot
Tomahawk, Manafort, pre-existing sex assault
Hundred days, hack attacks, filibuster, no tax
Wall funding somersault, Syria’s Obama’s fault
Steve Bannon loses ground, Sergey Lavrov comes around,
Science cries, Comey flieshealth care rates rise.
Fake news media, thought it would be easier
Walls or fences, British spies, no one ever really dies.

Paris deal, body slamFlynn was not Obama’s man
Probe frustration, “total vindication”
Eric’s cancer charity, I expect your loyalty,
Part ban makes it through, Perry loves CO2
Susan, Lisa, John McCain, put transgenders on the train,
Tweet today: “covfefe”. What else is there left to say?

Scaramucci interview, Dad told Donny what to do,
Priebus leave us, mail pranks deceive us,
Kelly, Mueller, polling slump, White House is a real dump
Interns mainly white men, Scaramucci gone again
“Fire and fury”, climate hoax, Secret Service going broke,
General Pershing, “many sides”, “alt-left”, Bannon fired
Monuments are coming down, council members leaving town
Neo-Nazis versus clowns, feeling like I’m gonna drown!

We didn’t pick the liar.
Now the news we’re learning is a bit concerning.
We didn’t pick the liar.
But with every dawn
He will still go on, and on, and on, and on…
We didn’t pick the liar.
Now the news we’re learning is a bit concerning.
We didn’t pick the liar.
No we didn’t pick him, but we’d love to kick him.
