In light of some executive orders (you know, the ones Republicans used to deride), it seems appropriate to update this little children’s rhyme.
Trumpty Dumpty wants a wall
But he hates the guys
He wants to hire to build it
Trumpty Dumpty wants a ban
But swore to defend
the Constitution that should kill it.
Trumpty Dumpty wants
To make America great
But doesn’t want to include all those fill it.
Trumpty Dumpty built a big tower
& fell on his hair
& people were like
“Aww, fuck it. I really don’t care. ”
& America was great again.
