What's in YOUR Covfefe?


"Covfefe", brought to you by those who believe in further defunding public K-12 and university education*!



"Turkish Covfefe":  When you're the only NATO head of nation congratulating Erdogan for steps towards dictatorship.

"Organic Covfefe": When that fertilizer you're slinging around wasn't made by Monsanto, if you catch my (smelly) drift.

"Covfefe House":  When you abandon your government-provided mansion every weekend and soak it the taxpayers by staying at your private resort.

"Covfefe Liqueur": What Sean Spicer needs a swig of when he comes out to explain things.

"Automatic Drip Covfefe":  Our future when most of us are unemployed or underemployed "drips" because most jobs are automated. 
     Liberal entrepreneurs feel a minimum income will solve this. But consumption without productivity will lead to more drug & alcohol abuse and probably more depression & other mental health issues.  (So, there's the "jab" to the other wing.)

"Truckstop Covfefe":  When you're about to get the shaft again after a decade of suppressed wages because you thought the Head Covfefe-Brewer was a "regular guy" who really cared about you!  Double shaft-- it's going towards "Automatic Drip" Covfefe for you, too!

"Covfefe au Lait":  When you've "milked" your supposed businessman's cred for all it's worth.  ("Some" people would have been better investing in an S & P Index fund than pretending to be real estate moguls.)

"French Roast Covfefe": When the French President addresses the world (and you) from Paris in English, and it's not to express his great admiration.

"Guatemalan Covfefe":  The type of Covfefe we're headed for:  The distribution of income remains highly unequal with the richest 20% of the population accounting for more than 51% of Guatemala's overall consumption. More than half of the population is below the national poverty line, and 23% of the population lives in extreme poverty.



"Ethiopian Covfefe":  A Covfefe we ignore too much. 

"Nicaraguan Covfefe":  When you want to join the ranks of those not in the Paris Accord.

"Venezuelan Covfefe":  When you congratulate your rich cronies at Goldman-Sachs for profiteering from bailing out and propping up a government that impoverishes its people.

"Cuban Covfefe":   When you, like Kennedy, don't really know what to order. [cf. "Bay of Pigs" and "Obama normalizing relations"  A two-fer jab at BOTH wings!]

"Air Force One Covfefe":  "Covfefe, tea or ME, ME, ME, ME, ME?!?!?!?!?!?"

*The Koch Brothers and the President are actually kind of "frenemies."  A lot of people forget that the Koch's aren't terribly fond of the President &  haven't given him campaign funds.
