No Defense

Defending The Indefensible

Is Offensive To The Unoffended

 

.

 

I am not offended

I am amazed and amused

By the sheer amount of people

Still clinging to celebrity

Who will decry fake news

Yet attach to fake leadership

Blame media for misinformation

Still accept the “leaders” lies *

Unreleased taxes & crowd size

Grabbing the thing between thighs

Using a vocabulary so minimal

Even that seems criminal

Said he’d never play golf **

Playing 275 times seems a bit off

If an economic train is moving then

When it is time to switch conductors

You are responsible once taking over

Conductor 44 didn’t blame the 43rd

For how poorly it was running just

Simply delegated to make it run

Losers blame winners lead

Or perhaps it is like a relay race

If the hand off goes smoothly

Then you stumble half way

Around the track it is not the fault

Of the runner who passed the baton

As of May 29, his 1,226th day in office, Trump had made 19,127 false or misleading claims, according to the Fact Checker’s database that analyzes, categorizes and tracks every suspect statement he has uttered. That’s almost 16 claims a day over the course of his presidency. So far this year, he’s averaging just over 22 claims a day, similar to the pace he set in 2019.

“Mr. Trump has reportedly been on the grounds of his golf courses or played golf elsewhere 275 times since becoming President, and that’s as of July 11, 2020.”

Defending the indefensible by casting blame for similar indiscretions is ignoring the fact that two wrongs don’t make a right. Children do that because it immediately switches the focus.
