King Trump is his own court jester

Hugo Buchanan

King Trump is his own Court Jester. Goes to Walter Reed Med Center a few days back, gets treated for COVID-19, and returns a hero, or so it seems to the selfish one. 

We’re all glad he has not developed a serious case so far, and wish him a speedy recovery. But to announce to the public that God may have  intervened in his illness and waved a magic wand in his favor, makes one want to throw up. 

What about the over-200,000 souls who have lost their daily blessings to share with the rest of humanity to awake to another wonderful day in this world that has been provided to us for eons? Not to lose track of the king’s evening activity, upon arrival at the home we all have provided for him, he climbs the flight of stairs to a balcony, and stands there at attention, and topped it off with a long salute to the darkness below, where news capturing cameras and projectors were making history of his every breath and movement. 

Most of his immediate staff are all now reported to be infected with COVID-19. But our king now has bounced his attention span over to our court of the highest order, and along with himself, ditch Mitch McConnell, and golf caddy Graham, will focus their attention on getting approval of a ninth judge, to try to overthrow Roe v Wade, and dictate to every woman in this country that they know what is best for her personal medical decisions in life. I myself am a old u-No-what, and being one of those that opens the ‘frig, then forgets what I was gonna take out, leaves one to consider that politicians and judges that rule for the rest of us, could be forgetful at times. Perhaps at some future time in our government, a non-partial committee could bring up the question of establishing a age limit, not only for presidents and congressmen, but judges included.

Back once again to COVID-19, Trump needs to pay attention to Dr. Fauci. He has stated recently that this coming winter could be very tragic with the numbers of COVID-related deaths in the hundreds of thousands.
