Thrilled

 

 

Chris Matthews made a sexist observation
concerning Mrs. Trump’s attractiveness.
I won’t repeat it here. I won’t say yes
to such a horrible communication.
It’s clear that chauvinistic domination,
objectifying women — that whole mess!–
governed his attitude. No need to guess.
He’s guilty — and deserves our condemnation.
Yet now I say: let condemnation end!
Forgive the miscreant! I urge. I beg.
Mrs. Trump’s not endangered, I contend.
She’s not a hole — and doesn’t fit his peg.
Only Barack Obama, folks, can send
the thrill electric up Chris Matthews’ leg!
