Enriching the 1% doesn’t count as public service

Dear President Trump,

Hmm. “WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SAY?” That’s actually a really good question for this comment box. I’ve certainly been saying a lot of what I want to say to you each day, but I’ve been somewhat constrained by my own rules of engagement so I’ve not said everything I’d like to say to you. I wonder what would happen if I did let loose and told you in no uncertain terms what I’d like to say to you, what I think of you. I bet your minions would block my IP address. I understand you’ve been blocking various people on your Twitter feed. Since I’m not on Twitter and don’t really understand it, I don’t exactly know what that means but my guess is that they can still see your public Tweets but they can’t respond to them. Why are you blocking certain people? I would think most reasonably balanced people would know better than to threaten you so it doesn’t seem likely you would have grounds on that front to block them. So what is it? Did they annoy you? Did they talk circles around you and frustrate you? You are the President of the United States and it doesn’t seem right that you can tune out the portion of the electorate that happens to annoy and frustrate you. But hey, you have been tuning us out for a very long time in one way or another and I actually think we should be pleased you are being more transparent about it now. You are putting it right out there that you refuse to hear from some of us. You’ve also made it clear how thin skinned you are. Are you really not able to suck it up and just deal with the annoying peons who tweet angry, clever things at you? And what can you possibly hope to gain by blocking them? I’m guessing to many of them to be blocked by you is a badge of honor; “I got to him so bad he blocked me!” The President of the United States should at least appear to be above the fray and you just keep getting hooked in such immature ways.

I wonder if you’ve blocked Kirsten Gillibrand for telling the truth when she said “If we are not helping people, we should go the fuck home”? I can hear you whining that you do help people but since she’s not talking about enriching the 1%, you are not helping people and you should go home. Since you won’t do that of your own accord any time soon and we need you to not lose your temper in a fit of pique with other world leaders…

May you be safe.
May you be happy.
May you be healthy.
May your life intersect peacefully.

Sincerely,
Tracy Simpson
