From the beginning of his presidency, Donald Trump has been the most difficult person in my life. On February 13, 2017 I began sending him a message with a loving-kindness blessing every day via the White House contact page. Starting with the February 20th message all of the letters are reproduced here, and I plan … Continue reading Hello and Welcome
President* Trump, Was your hand too gross and sweaty for Melania to deign to hold it for the walk off the debate stage or is she really, terribly not into you these days? It’s been a while since I’ve seen a clip of her pulling away from you like that and last night’s retaliatory little … Continue reading Rotten apples fall especially close to their trees
President* Trump, Well, I gave watching the debate quite a decent go this evening and hung in longer on this one than the last one. I couldn’t tell how much the mic-muting was actually happening – maybe it was only when you each had your formal 2-minute responses – but however it worked, things seemed … Continue reading Finders not keepers
President* Trump, Looks like I’m late to the party, or at least to the pre-funk where we get to savor the idea that you’ll make good on your threat to leave the country if you lose the election. Yesterday I got a Daily Kos notification about your quip during the super-spreader rally in Macon, Georgia … Continue reading Bon voyage dear POTUS?
President* Trump, Yesterday Laura came back from her walk with the biggest apple I’ve ever seen. It looks like a Honeycrisp on steroids – I think it’s about 50% bigger than a big one of those apples. She found it on the ground and somehow it isn’t bruised and there aren’t any worm holes or … Continue reading Tubman $20’s
President* Trump, Was it just dumb luck or did you know from the get-go that it would be perversely helpful to you long about January 21st 2021 to have set it up so that your opposition is reluctant to look as though they’re being partisan in trying to hold you accountable for your crimes? Was … Continue reading Post-this-POTUS ~ to dig or not to dig….?
President* Trump, Before we left the house to deliver our ballots to the official drop box nearest us, I did something I’ve never ever done before – I kissed the envelope and wished it godspeed. I’m realizing now that I should have kissed Laura’s too as I was holding both of them while she grabbed … Continue reading Godspeed for those ballots and for a dear one who passed on
President* Trump, Our ballots came this afternoon! We’re going to sit down and do the research on the less obvious contests and issues this evening and will make the ceremonial ballot drop off trip tomorrow some time. Yee-hah! I have two rather poetic, if totally unrealistic, mental images of all the millions of mail-in ballots … Continue reading Sending ballots on their way and an old phrase with ignoble origins
President* Trump, So I guess when the WAstate.gov website says that general election ballots will be mailed on October 16, 2020 it means they aren’t going to show up in our mailboxes the same day. I see that this is logical – ballots don’t have special powers and can’t just teleport into mailboxes the same … Continue reading Let’s chuck those old male models
President* Trump, Now, I don’t for a minute think the real Amy Coney Barrett was abducted by her husband in cahoots with a band of wife-killer husbands and replaced with the butter-won’t-melt-in-my-mouth, perfectly poised non-committal woman who participated in the SCOTUS confirmation hearings this week. Nope, we can’t chalk her perfectly scripted responses up to … Continue reading Women who betray other women
President* Trump, Is there no one in your camp willing to hold the magic mirror up for you to see how pathetic your groveling and race baiting looks? “Suburban women, would you please like me? Please. Please, I saved your damn neighborhoods, OK?” “….my favorite people in the world—the seniors…. We’re taking care of our … Continue reading Mirror, mirror…. who’s the fairest of them all?
