Lying In Bed (With Donald Trump)

Olivia Nuzzi writes, in the Daily Beast:

In the afternoon in Ohio, Trump said he sometimes tweets while in bed in the morning, so let’s picture him there, bundled in rich silks, when he said at 7:27: “This story is not about Mr. Khan, who is all over the place doing interviews, but rather RADICAL ISLAMIC TERRORISM and the U.S. Get smart!”

Which got me thinking…

Early this morning, his publicist said,
The Donald was tweeting while lying in bed
(I think that’s the phrase that The Donald preferred,
But “lying while tweeting”’s the phrase that I heard.)

He tweeted out bullshit; he tweeted out hype,
As fast as diminutive fingers can type
He tweeted corrections to last night’s mistakes
He tweeted rebuttals; he tweeted hot takes

More tweets which, tomorrow, he’ll have to “correct”
Just the standard procedure we’ve come to expect
And then, when he finished with lying in bed
He got up, to start lying while standing, instead.

    Sometimes it’s hard to think clearly before that first cup of coffee.
    or the first cup of blood of a virgin

    You left out the part about Melania off in her own private bathroom, puking, again.
