Stump Speech: Exit Interview

“Are you a sore loser?”

“Can’t be. I never lose.”

“You lost the election — ”

“Wrong. No. Uh-uh. Fake news.”

“People died. Staff resigned.

They muzzled your Twitter.

The Senate’s rejection — ”

“Quitter, quitter, quitter.”

“Last words? Any regrets?”

I scorn what that imputes.

Although, on reflection —

I’d put down deeper roots.”
