Song of the Sewer (1955)
By Ed Norton (Art Carney)

The Trumpster is a raving lunatic and the more deranged his rhetoric, the more the Dumbos/Teabaggers clamor for more lunacy. Louder! Nuttier! And The Trumpster delivers. Build a wall and make the Republic of Mexico pay for it. If this is (fair & balanced) national insanity, so be it.

He speaks his mind, but, truth be told, he
Should not have dissed that Megyn Kelly.

[Calvin Trillin began his career as a writer for Time magazine. Since July 2, 1990, as a columnist at The Nation, Trillin has written his weekly "Deadline Poet" column: humorous poems about current events. Trillin has written considerably more pieces for The Nation than any other single person. A native of Kansas City, MO, Trillin received his BA from Yale College in 1957. He served in the army, and then joined Time.]
