Is It Possible That There Is Another Wackier Klown Than The Trumpster?

This blog's poet-in-residence — The Deadline Poet (Calvin Trillin) — skewers one of the wackiest of the Klowns: Ben Carson, MD (University of Michigan Medical School). BonkersBen can find neither his a$$ nor anything in the Middle East and yet he believes he should be POTUS 45. It is telling when The Trumpster condemns BonkersBen as a sociopath, capable of child-molestation. This is a classic case of the pot, the kettle, and the color black. If this is a (fair & balanced) classic case of political insanity, so be it.

When Carson claims he was a bad-ass youth,
His tales and actual facts vary.
But even if he didn’t wield a shiv,
The man’s ideas alone are scary. Ω

[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.]
