Mandatory Trump Education Lesson 6

Listen Donnie

instead of both lamenting
the closure of the Trump Foundation

(which in fact
can not yet be done

as the charity is still under investigation
by the New York attorney general)

and bragging about how ethical you are
for avoiding

"even the appearance
of any conflict" of interest
by shutting it down

it would be better
to be quiet
get off Twitter

and in your own words

"continue to pursue
your "strong interest in philanthropy"

by preparing
just as Obama did

to work with people you hate

and who perhaps
also don't like you

for the next four years.
