The President Shredded My Homework, Teacher

by Steve Bremner

“President Donald Trump tore up briefings and schedules, articles and letters, memos both
sensitive and mundane. … And he did it all in violation of the Presidential Records Act, despite
being urged by at least two chiefs of staff and the White House counsel to follow the law on
preserving documents.”
The Washington Post

When Donald J. Trump took a fancy
To tearing the trite and the chancy
He said of his breach,
In his strange, shredded speech:
“It’s the one thing I ripped off from Nancy.”
