“She Did It First!”

Context matters, don’t forget.
It’s clear Trump hasn’t learned that yet.
Clinton fired Bush’s crew
And Reagan sloughed off Carter’s, too.
W. let Clinton’s go…
What Trump did’s something different, though.
In language that conveyed disgust
He claimed Ms. Yates “betrayed” her trust
And called her “weak” not once but twice.
That’s false, uncalled for, and not nice.
New brooms may, as they say, sweep clean,
But how Trump dealt with Yates was mean
And spiteful. “Janet Reno did it!”
That’s how you defend him? Quit it.
Leaders–good ones–bold and strong
Do not behave that way. It’s wrong.
