Clever play on words everywhere. Political satire reminiscent of editorials from 20 years ago. Romaine lettuce being the best reminded me of lettuce being a slang term for money, so it brought in another meaning when I read it. "Concierge" being mistaken for "conscience" was a little more exaggerated. Nice job.

I really enjoyed reading this. Very creative and hilarious. You captured my attention from the beginning and kept me interested in reading to the very end.
Nice Job!

I was just scanning your work, came across this and couldn't stop reading...or laughing. Another...excuse the cliché, nail on the head. Hmm, wonder if that would help...oh never mind, he's hopeless! LOL! Please write some more of these wonderful works! Super job!

    Thanks for finding this one in the archives I believe I wrote it shortly after he was inaugurated - sadly, he hasn't gotten any smarter.

I am laughing so hard here. You have an exact story that unfortunately describes our current president. Excellent use of words to describe the mentality of our leader.

Cub fans? Ahahahaha!

"Yes, like that, only with a lot of people." HAHAHAHAHA!

Mark, I only DREAM of writing like this - but I'm far too unclever. (YES it's a word. I just wrote it, so it MUST be. If it did not exist, you wouldn't be seeing it, now WOULD you!)

Down further than NEARLY BRAIN DEAD?

(I think I have COPD. Also, can you get a brain hemorrhage from laughing too hard?)

AAAAAAAAAAAAHEEEEEEEEEHEHEHEHEHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Fauna?

run-of-the-mill, average level intelligence fauna!!!

Okay, I'm at the point of surrender. No more wise cracks. Your script is brilliant. (and my asthma has me needing to stop reading before I choke to death. I really think I have graduated to COPD - well okay, maybe graduated is not the best word...)

"Squirrel!"

(Ah, ta heck with whether a six promotes this or not...)

    Thanks so much Dawn. Knowing someone laughed at me makes my day. In high school they used to laugh at me too, but that was different.

Oh, yes, what will our President tweet next? Maybe he still thinks he is on a reality show. This is well written and witty. The personification of Reality to interact with the Preseident is a creative approach to get your point across.

I try to stay out of the political realm on this
site but this is so exceptional. You will get a lot
of push-back, but not from me. I am so delighted
to see something that is true reality. Thank you. -Bill

    Thanks Bill. I usually do get a few one-star ratings after I post one of these. I haven't on this one yet, but there's still time. At any rate, I'm glad you liked it.

This is fun, fast paced script that it so close to the truth it's scary! This is written with acerbic wit about reality and someone how is mentality and emotionally incapable of understanding its meaning.

I saw a sign from the women's protest march and it made me think because it simplicity is brilliant. The sign read:" I don't blame Donald Trump. He showed you he was unfit to be President."

Quote from the great Maya Angelou: " When people show you who they are, believe them."

    Thanks - I couldn't agree with your point more. Perhaps the saddest thing about this election is having to accept the fact that, despite knowing full well what kind of person Trump was, 65 million of my countrymen and women (and a majority of my fellow Catholics) voted for him. I thought we were better than that.

    So did I. Big sigh!!!!

OMG!!! I think you've hit the nail on the head. You've also hit the hammer with a bigger hammer, and then took THAT hammer and put it in a steel scrap compactor. You get the idea. Brilliant . . . your comedic sensibilities are ever sharpening . . . maybe you're supposed to be writing for SNL . . . I heard this whole thing done in my head in Alec Baldwin's voice. Do you ever get shit from conservative on here, or the Christians?

    Thanks Bill. Yeah, I usually get one or two One-star ratings when I post something that's anti-Trump. Their argument, as is the case with many Trump supporters, is "But Hillary..." So far though, I've not gotten anything on this one telling me what an ass I am - there's still time though...

Oh yeah, a lot of work! That's where this review must end. I'm Australian and thank God I didn't have to vote. Our voting system is compulsory so the other side woulda won. Good write. Mabaker

    Thanks - my daughter is heading to Australia (Perth) in two weeks to study at UWA for a semester. She's looking forward to the escape from our insanity.
