Stephen Colbert recites the new Statue of Liberty poem
by Nathan'ette Burdine: August 4, 2017

Some satire

Stephen Colbert shared the new poem that could be placed at the base of the Statue of Liberty.

This poem represents President Donald Trump’s vision of America. It is a vision which includes all educated, middle to upper class folks, and folks who can speak fluent and proper English.

It is a new America which strives not to be the beacon light of the world, but a Hope Diamond kind of America that is rare and available to a limited number of folks only.

The poem embodying this new America reads as follows: "Give me your wealthy, your rich, your huddled MBAs yearning to be tax free. Send these, the English speaking fully insured to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door and lift my leg upon your filthy poor. P.S. No fatties please."
