Plausible Deniability

by Dan Campion

“Trump denies report that Matt Gaetz asked for blanket pardon”
New York Post

Why, sure, he begged pardon, in khakis and blazer,
For frat-boy gyrations he did to amaze her
(The girl of the hour), but, boys, you can bank it—
He never did ask me to pardon his blanket.
