Apologies to Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in the dump.
From scientific warnings dire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it’s up to Donald Trump
I think he’d be stupid enough
To leave us heading for the dump
Where climate stuff
Is a rat’s rump.


Pundits have talked about “Trumpism” as if there were some actual coherent thinking behind the President’s plans and priorities. From what we can infer from Trump’s words and actions, Trumpism consists of the following:
  1. Ally with anyone who says nice things about Trump.
  2. Get taxpayer support for any property with the Trump name on it.
  3. Promote close relatives of Trump.
  4. Attack any media outlets or individuals critical of Trump.
  5. Spread the word via the @realDonaldTrump Twitter account.
  6. Promote the Trump brand and any Trump family businesses.
  7. Disregard world leaders who are not Trump.
  8. Make the world safe for Trump.
  9. Despite the constant negative press covfefe because … Trump.
  10. If there’s any time left, undo anything done by Obama.
