John LITHGOW is to be impeached, citizenship stripped, deported!1




**********QUOTE******

Trumpty Dumpty wanted a wall
To stir up a rabid political brawl.
His Republican rivals, both feckless and stodgy,
Succumbed in the end to his rank demagogy.
Dumpty’s wall made no earthly sense,
A boondoggle built at enormous expense.
But he promised, in speeches despotic and shrill,
He’d make certain that Mexico footed the bill.
Trumpty Dumpty kept insisting.
More and more citizens started resisting.
Sadly, there won’t be an end to this tale,
At least until reasonable people prevail.

Dumpty: The Age of Trump in Verse (Political Satire Book, Poetry, Political Humor Gift)

Award-winning actor and bestselling author John Lithgow wields a whip-smart, satirical pen in this poetic diatribe chronicling the last few abysmal years in politics. With lacerating wit, he takes readers verse by verse through the history of Donald Trump's presidency, lampooning the likes of Betsy DeVos, Anthony Scaramucci, Scott Pruitt, Paul Manafort, Trump's doctors, and many others. Illustrated from cover to cover with Lithgow's never-before-seen line drawings, the poems collected in Dumpty draw inspiration from A. A. Milne, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Mother Goose, and many more. A YUGE feat of laugh-out-loud lyrical storytelling, this hilarious and timely volume is bound to bring joy to poetry lovers, political junkies, and Lithgow fans.

2. Love John Lithgow.

They called him the Trinity Killer, but what they didn't realize is there were always FOUR deaths.

3. That was an excellent season of Dexter!

The one with Jimmy Smith was great, too.

I've seen Lithgow in so many different roles. He is tremendously talented. He played the nasty villain in Sylvester Stallone's film, "Cliffhanger." He also played the lead in the Broadway musical, "The Sweet Smell of Success." Yes, he can sing. (The musical was quite awful, unfortunately.) He's been nominated for 6 Tony awards and won once.

In addition, I met him on one occasion and he couldn't have been a more gracious gentleman.

I just ordered his e-book. Mr. Lithgow is a creative treasure.
