The Last Debate, Satire Rhyme.

Updated on October 20, 2016
always exploring profile image

My name is Ruby. I live in Southern Illinois. I love to write poetry, short stories and flash fiction. I am a retired R.N.

President Obama's half- brother, Malik

Source

Oh no, can my psyche stand another hysterical presidential debate?

' Ain't ' it all been said? Can there be more for them to relate?

Haven't we voters heard it all, the affairs, the emails is there more?

Like Trump's on and off approval of the war that he said he wasn't for?????

Hillary's emails are begging to be laid to rest

The GOP grilled her for hours and she got an A plus, ' ain't that supposed to be the best?

I hear Trump invited Obama's half-brother to sit in the gallery's front row

I reckon Barack and Malik's brotherly love ended when we killed his friend Gadhafi the Libyan dictator foe

I wonder who else he'll put on national TV?

The women he groped. He loves to boast. How ignorant can any one man be?

I reckon I'll watch it, like I'm already hooked

To see if he physically knocks Hillary out with his left-hook

I ' ain't kiddin' his puffed up anger just might explode

Sniffing dope might be too much, you know, like an overload

So tomorrow if they're both still alive

We voters can decide who we'll vote for, ' ain't that a bunch of jive?

Hee..

      I must admit, I'm shocked! As I watched the process last night, I remained hopeful until the votes turned in Fl. He pledges to be a president to all Americans, we will see? The markets are responding all over the world. We must continue on and do the best we can. Hillary has won the popular vote, just like Gore. I, too can not call him President. Let's hope he surrounds himself with intelligent people. President Putin called him and congratulated him last night. We will survive this. God bless America. Hugs my friend.

      People wanted change when they voted for Obama back in '08. All we can do is hope for the best -- for everyone, including our friends who voted for Mr. Trump. I can't bring myself to refer to him as President Trump. I love my country, but this man is not my President, and I never thought I would say this during my lifetime. Hugs my friend.

      Hello Genna. I've watched this political season in a state of shock. I had no idea that so many people were unhappy and wanted a change, and in their mind, the change is Trump. An uneducated man who will shame us with his off-the-wall antics. I am not surprised by your friend's comments. People are laughing all over the world. Putin is especially happy.

      Oh well, That's life..

      Thank you my friend...

      Hello MsDora. I am happy to see you. When I write satire, it relieves stress. This is a sad time in America. The thought of Trump becoming president makes me sick. Hillary is ahead in the polls today. God willing, she will win. Thank you...

      Hi Ruby...

      Wanted to share a funny anecdote with you. I watched Graham Norton last night -- the only interview show I will watch because it is very natural, unpretentious and quite funny (and British and I do so love the Brits.). The guests were Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything); Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock) and our own Bryan Cranston. Trump's name popped up re this election season in the US and the audience laughed. Cranston said -- tongue in cheek -- "We are sooo sorry. What can I say except that we are sorry," apologizing on behalf of us Yanks. :-)

      Another friend of mine was in Paris a couple of weeks ago. When asked, "Trump as President? He is "completement débile. (Complete moron.) What's happened to people over there?" by a Parisian, he said, "I can tell you what, but I can't explain the why of it in any way a reasonably intelligent person would understand. C'est la vie."

      Well done Ruby. You said it all in a humorous way. Around the world everyone is watching what the outcome will be between two people who both use slander, bickering and fighting to be in total control. To become top dag. Who in their right mind would want the job!

      I always enjoyed listing to America's presidential debates. The variety of topics addressed in the past were captivating. Sadly, it was totally different this year. I guess this is what happens when you put a politician and a businessman on one stage. My advice to Trump: "Cobbler, stick to your last and pay your taxes!"

      Oh Shyron, the thought of him becoming our president brings chills, but you are right, if the people stay home she could lose. We lost our Governor here because only 1/3 of the people bothered to vote. I like your rhyme. Come back anytime.

      Ruby, my gem of a friend

      I am so glad your a Demo too

      Can't wait for Hillary to show what she can do

      Unless the apathetic voters are like the ones in my town

      Only 5,000 out of 45,000 couldn't get the mayor out

      I hope that is not how the national election is all about

      Because the voters think Hillary has it all in the bag

      And they may all stay home and become a drag

      Then the Don can brag what he will do to me and you.

      Hello Genna. I thought after I wrote the other satire on Trump, I wouldn't write anymore about him, but when the news said Trump was bringing President Obama's half - brother and seat him in the front row, I couldn't resist. Then after writing this, he wasn't there. I don't know what happened. Anyway, I'm sick of the whole mess. November the 8th will arrive soon, and I'll be a happy camper.. I'm glad you got a chuckle. Thank you much...

      Hello Shyron,

      What can I say except this is my last time to write about The Don

      I think he'll be in prison for swindling the students who had to pawn

      Everything they owned to pay for an education they didn't receive

      But I feel for the female guards, who will have to wear chastity belts to stay safe from this sleaze

      I'm thrilled you're a Demo friend

      We'll stick together till Hillary calls us to work at the borders, welcoming the tired and hungry where we will all peacefully blend.

      Love you...

      This political junkie sure got a jolt

      Reading this like a lightening bolt

      If the trumpster wins I'll be the one

      To lead the revolt

      But, he don't want to win

      He just launched Trump TV show

      Bet this is something su-Pence don't know

      He will be left behind and not invited on his show

      Already Ivana is asking for Campaign Dough

      Britebart will be raking it in

      Cause Trump don't know he will answer to him

      If y'all are familiar with the Change.org website, you might note that someone has started a petition to set a limit on the legal campaign time for a presidential election. I don't think it will work, but we can always hope.

      Hello Eric. After last night's debate, I have no worries. She not only looked presidential she showed the world what a wimp Trump is. I was surprised that the president's half- brother was not shown sitting in the front row. I'm happy to hear that you like to hear what they have to say. I just tell it like it is, but I must admit, I have fun being a political junky. Thank you..
