Election Night Bender

by Chris O’Carroll

“We will… hear testimony that President Trump rejected the advice
of his campaign
experts on election night and instead followed the course
recommended by an apparently inebriated Rudy Giuliani
to just claim he won…”
—Congresswoman Liz Cheney (R-Wyo)

His sober team brings news he hates to hear.
He can’t admit he lost. He’d rather die.
Defeated, weak, and prey to primal fear,
He needs to party with the other guy,
So Reeling Rudy plies him with good cheer,
Uncorking bottles of Chateau Big Lie.
