Trump Haiku: 1

[Each of these haiku is composed solely of the Donald’s own words.]
Sick geniuses will
break the system. I’m like, Death
Wish, plain and simple.

I can let people
know they were a fraud.
You have a voice.

There’d be a major
collapse in television.
I’m not a masochist.

I make $400
million a year, so what
difference does it make?

A lot of programs
are 100 percent Trump.
Who needs commercials?

Our country must be
glamorized. No, presidents
don’t carry luggage.
