He was a very, very bad boy

He was a very, very bad boy

I'm just going to post a bit of Dana Milbanks' piece today:

See Rex.

Rex is a big dog. Rex is the top dog. Rex has a good job. Rex can fly! Rex has a jet. Fly, Rex, fly. Rex flies to other lands. Rex sits. Rex shakes. Rex speaks. When Rex speaks, Rex thinks he speaks for the U.S.A.

See Donald. Donald owns Rex. Rex is Donald’s dog. Donald is loud. Donald is big. Donald is bigger than Rex. Donald is mean to Rex. When Rex speaks, Donald tweets. Donald tweets like a bird. Tweet, Donald, tweet. Donald’s tweets hurt Rex. Donald says: Bad, Rex! Do not speak, Rex. Rex, you do not speak for the U.S.A. Only Donald speaks for the U.S.A.

Rex rolls over. Roll, Rex, roll. Good boy. Rex tells Donald he will not be a bad dog again. Rex tries. Rex tries hard. Rex tries very hard. But then Rex forgets. Rex thinks he speaks for the U.S.A. again. Donald gets mad again. Donald tweets again. Rex rolls over again.

Rex is so sad. Rex wants to cry. Rex was a big boss once. He dug for oil. Dig, Rex, dig. Rex made a lot of bones. But Donald said: Do not dig, Rex. Come be my dog.

Rex began to think. I will not dig for oil, Rex said. I will not make so many bones. I will be Donald’s dog.

Now Rex is sorry. Sad, sad, Rex.

Rex flies to China. Rex speaks. Rex says the U.S.A. will talk to Rocket Man. “Would you like to talk?” Rex asks. “We can talk to them. We do talk to them.” Talk, Rex, talk.

Oh no! Donald is mad at Rex. Donald tweets. Donald says Rex is “wasting his time.” Donald says he will not talk “with Little Rocket Man.” Donald tweets, “Save your energy, Rex.” Rex has been bad! Rex does not speak for the U.S.A. Rex whimpers. Rex is in the doghouse.

[...]

Donald likes other dogs better than Rex. Donald lets them work with him in the White House. They are small dogs. They laugh at Rex. Rex says people in the U.S.A. should “sleep well.” Rex says they should not worry about Rocket Man. The other dogs yip. They yap. They say: Rex does not speak for the U.S.A. Roll over, Rex, they say. Rex rolls over.

What did you say, Donald? Donald will send Rex to a farm? Donald will put Rex to sleep?

See Rex run. Run, Rex, run!


Poor Rex.
