There are happy clowns and sad clowns. Angry clowns and scary clowns. Loud clowns and quiet clowns. Clowns on bikes and clowns in cars. Circus clowns and birthday party clowns.
Now, we have a new type of clown -- the irrelevant clown -- introduced to the world by Donald Trump.
Meet Trumpy, the Irrelevant Clown:
Once the crisis started building, Trumpy the Clown (now Corona the Clown) still refused to act. He actually said, "I take no responsibility." Mayors and governors took up the void and donned the mantle of leadership. Trump the Clown had become irrelevant.

As stated above, Trumpy the Clown's introduction to the coronavirus pandemic was his always popular con, "It's a hoax."
Trumpy's Muslim Ban was a hoax. Stormy Daniels was a hoax. 20-plus women accused him of sexual assault -- hoax, hoax, hoax, hoax. His friendship with Jeffrey Epstein -- a hoax. Emolument clause violations -- a hoax. The Mueller report -- a hoax. His impeachment -- a hoax.
Now the Coronavirus was a hoax.
While it is true that Trumpy knows more than every scientist on the planet, the reviews for his "hoax" act have not been favorable. No, his misunderstandings, misinterpretations, and miscalculations surrounding the pandemics have been pathetically pitiable and sad -- all of which calls to mind Emmett Lee Dickinson's poem "'Hoax' is his strange deception" (below on the left) Dickinson's poem inspired third cousin Emily to pen her poem "Hope is a strange invention" (below on the right).
By Emmett Lee Dickinson:
“Hoax” is his strange deception –
A Pretense of a Clown –
An unremitting action
Yet never wearing out –
Of his pathetic Adjuncts
No facts involved are known
But his unique subversion
Embellished for his core –
By Emily Dickinson:
Hope is a strange invention –
A Patent of the Heart –
In unremitting action
Yet never wearing out –
Of this electric Adjunct
Not anything is known
But its unique momentum
Embellish all we own –
Turns out that Trumpy the Clown's schtick about the virus being a hoax -- was nothing more than a hoax! Still, it did not top Trumpy's number one hoax of all time:
"All Americans will have cheaper, better health care as of Day One of my administration.”
Now THAT was a hoax!
