One-Liner Wednesday — Harassment

3837CC44-1F44-4665-B6E7-F50454D29053“President harassment: it’s like sexual harassment, only the Republicans take it seriously.”

Comedian and TV host, Stephen Colbert 

Donald Trump has been throwing around the term “presidential harassment” to describe what the Democrats in the House of Representatives are doing by opening up investigations into his finances, his inauguration expenditures, his obstruction of justice, and his collusion with Russia to win the presidential election.

During his State of the Union speech last week he even had a cute little rhyme that one of his speechwriters cooked up: “If there is going to be peace and legislation, there cannot be war and investigation.”

Of course, he still wants “his” Justice Department to investigate and prosecute Hillary Clinton and former FBI Director James Comey for some perceived crimes that only he knows about. I guess, in Trump’s demented mind, what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander.


Written for the One-Liner Wednesday prompt from Linda G. Hill.

      I’m not sure if your comment was genuine or facetious. Either way, thanks. By the way, I just read that Fox News is conducting “an inquiry” into an alleged quid pro quo involving a senior State Department official and Hillary Clinton’s classified emails. Uh oh, that means something big and bad is about to come out about Trump and this Fox News “inquiry” is another distraction and diversion technique that Trump and his sycophants are known for.

        It was genuine Fandango. You wrote a funny piece and I enjoyed it.

        Ugh, the government. They’re gonna go at each other relentlessly in public, but behind closed doors the laugh incessantly together while they count their money!

        What’s the difference between trump sycophants and Bernie sycophants or Obama sycophants or Hillary sycophants?

          Only Trump sycophants are supporting a traitor.

    That cutesy little rhyme during the State of the Union almost made me throw a shoe at the screen. I need to watch more Stephen Colbert — definitely better for my blood pressure!

      He (Colbert) is great and he is so good at skewering Trump.
