Lean Back Into It by Jennifer Lagier

Are Trump Supporters Too Dumb to Know They’re Dumb? Science Says ‘Probably’—
Addicting Info article

Camille vapes Sunset Tea marijuana,
watches presidential candidates debate.
She hits the mute button,
improvises moronic non sequiturs
in the voice of Daffy Duck
on behalf of The Donald.
Invents a pornographic response.

Sick of lies,
political pandering,
she wants to erase
the indelible image
of Trump’s white supremacist,
illiterate, misogynistic supporters
as they strut & preen,
spew virulent hatred
on prime time TV.

She’s had her fill of
impotent moderators,
spin doctor pundits,
middle-school squabbles.
Like most of the nation,
just feels depleted.
