He Ain’t Whistling Dixie

by Marshall Cobb

“By calling Sessions a dumb Southerner, Trump has done the impossible.”—Issac Bailey, CNN

So Donald Trump with his big mouth
Has managed to piss off the South.
The South which gladly gave their votes,
Dismissing all those Twitter quotes.
The South which always had his back
And never failed to cut him slack.
Ignoring every single fault,
They loved the total Trump gestalt.
Their anti-immigration cry?
“Let’s build the wall, let’s raise it high!”
But now he may have jumped the shark
With that “Dumb Southerner” remark.
It’s hard to say, it’s just September,
But will they dump him come November?
