Trumping “Emmy-nence”

No aristocratic titles
Are attached to presidents…
But after that awards show?
Well, call Trump “His Emmy-nence”.

He’s their unifying figure,
And the sum of all their fears;
He’s the drabness of their comedy.
The punchline to their tears.

Though not quite every moment
Was about him, I suppose;
I hear some “Handmaidens” were
Liberated from their clothes…

(And that signified “empowerment,”
And foreshadowed awards
For actresses submissive to
Their Leftist overlords.)

Of course, I only heard this
Through recorded next-day chatter—
Our media aristocracy
Pretending they still matter.

Statistically, it’s probable
You missed the Emmys too…
If not, there’s always next year.
(You can skip the Oscars, too.)

    I think you’ve captured the depth of their shallow irrelevance quite well.

    We could form a new protest group (eschewing the violence of course) and call it AntiEm….. appropriate for Hollywood mental midgets…. Uh Oh… I’ll probably be hearing from some SJW on that “fox paws”.

    I haven’t watched a Hollywood award show since Harrison Ford burst out in cheers because Roman Polanski child rapist won an award. I liked Harrison Ford, he seemed like a less crazy actor. Turns out I was wrong.
