Without exception, our United States’ presidents have been worthy of respect – even by citizens of the opposing party. That respect ended with the inauguration of Donald Trump.

This website is a platform for opinion sharing by U.S. citizens experiencing the shame and turmoil of the Trump administration. You are invited to share your opinion in the form of parody or satire of popular literature, poetry, song, nursery rhyme, etc. You might even find the effort of creating such a parody a therapeutic experience. Send your submissions to POTUSparodies@gmail.com.

Why parody? Parody has long been used to express political discord. Shakespeare routinely wove parody into the fabric of his plays. Gulliver’s Travels is a parody of the travel narrative and a biting satirical commentary on the then-complacent state of English politics. In The Great Dictator, Charlie Chaplin cunningly parodied Hitler, fascism and antisemitism.

Yes, Virginia,
Donald Trump is Unworthy of the Title
‘President of the United States’

Dear Editor:

I am an American voter.

Some of my family and friends have accepted that Donald Trump will be our next President, despite the other candidate winning 2.8 million more popular votes. One of those votes was mine. But Donald Trump’s words and actions tell me he is not worthy of being my President.

Please tell me the truth. Is Donald Trump unworthy of the title President of the United States?

Virginia
--------------------------------
Virginia,

Your family and friends are wrong to accept Donald Trump as President. They have been deceived by a deceptive campaign. They believe what Donald Trump wants them to believe:  that because he won the most electoral votes, he is worthy of being our President. The honorable title of President of the United States is reserved for our head of state and head of our government. The President directs the executive branch of the federal government and is the commander-in-chief of the United States Armed Forces. Virginia, in this great universe of ours, Donald Trump has proven no measurable capacity to grasp the whole (or even a tiny fragment) of truth and knowledge needed to be President of the United States.

Yes, Virginia, Donald Trump is unworthy of the title President of the United States. From his hateful words and inappropriate actions before, during and after the election, we know with certainty that Donald Trump has no honor and is no President, no leader, no commander, no chief. A President must have dignity and intelligence, understanding and devotion, and Donald Trump has exhibited none of these. Alas, how dreary would be the country with Donald Trump as our President. It would be as dreary as the Electoral College is outdated, where the majority vote of the people is ignored, where sense and sight is clouded by Donald Trump’s irrational tweets at dawn. If Donald Trump were to be our President, the external light with which a majority of intelligent voters can change the world would be extinguished.

Donald Trump as our President? You might as well believe in Donald Trump as Santa Claus! You might hire men to watch Donald Trump in his Santa costume, but what would that show? Wearing a Santa costume or wearing a President costume is no proof of being Santa and no proof of being President. The most real things in the world are those that only intelligent voters can see. Did you ever see Donald Trump speak or behave like a President, or leader or commander-in-chief? Of course not, and that’s all the proof you need! Virginia, only you and I and 65 million American voters could conceive or imagine the abomination of Donald Trump in a President costume.

Donald Trump may cry and whine and tear at the popular vote to see what makes the noise inside, but that vote is safeguarded with something called voter integrity, which not even the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only true patriotism, reverence and devotion to our country can push aside that curtain and expose a person worthy of the title President of the United States. Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is no person less worthy of that title than Donald Trump.Donald Trump as President of the United States? It will never be true in my heart, and need not be in yours. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, in the hearts of the majority of American voters, it will be true that Donald Trump was most unworthy of the title President of the United States.
