Dear President Trump, I respectfully request that you continue to insult and belittle women at every opportunity. Really, I think you should keep it up. You are doing an incredible job demonstrating that you and your administration don’t give a damn about girls and women. Although you may collect a few more votes from likeminded … Continue reading Please keep it up

Why are you so willing to alienate even more women?
Dear President Trump, Who do you have watching the polls? Have you told whoever it is that you want the unvarnished truth about what those polls are saying? And if so, when they tell you the truth, are you taking it in or are you blasting the messenger? The poll I’m thinking about was reported … Continue reading Why are you so willing to alienate even more women?
Do you remember their names?
Dear President Trump, The woman with the long dark hair behind you on the left hand side of the screen looked ill as you revved up to blast Dr. Ford at your Mississippi rally last night. She seemed to be looking for the exit or maybe for anyone else who felt repulsed. She managed a … Continue reading Do you remember their names?
Hell to pay
Dear President Trump, Yesterday our VA facility’s Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Coordinator emailed out a really nice self-care handout for us to share with veterans who are feeling stressed and triggered by what is going on in the national news. The handout was created at the national level to make sure that our veterans with … Continue reading Hell to pay
Day 600 and in-spite-of-you-positives
Dear President Trump, Last night Laura remarked that I must be getting close to the 600 day mark in our one-sided correspondence so I checked and we were at 599, which means today is indeed the 600th consecutive day of writing to you. It seems like this should feel like an accomplishment of sorts, but … Continue reading Day 600 and in-spite-of-you-positives
No question who’s on top of the heap
Dear President Trump, All my life I’ve had trouble with people’s names and when someone has a last name that is traditionally a first name, things get even worse for me. This is especially true when the person is male since most last names are male-based and thus boys or men can end up with … Continue reading No question who’s on top of the heap
Dear President Trump, Today I saw and heard things that give me hope that we have the capacity to be ok, that we can come through this sad, infuriating, broken time of ours and be ok. This afternoon we went to the Total Experience Gospel Choir’s farewell concert honoring Pastor Patrinell Wright. It was in … Continue reading Pretty lovely
When you go low
Dear President Trump, Surely I’ve asked you this before, but how much of what you say do you actually believe? We know you tell multiple falsehoods a day, but it’s still not clear how much of what you say you’re saying to consciously manipulate your base and how much of what you say you’d tell … Continue reading When you go low
Having it every which way
Dear President Trump, I’ve been thinking about the disclosure of Dr. Ford’s identity and trying to make sense of the timing of everything. A case could be made, and has been made vociferously, that Feinstein and the Democrats withheld the letter and Dr. Ford’s identity until after Brett’s formal hearings were over to make a … Continue reading Having it every which way
Our reservoir is coming back online
Dear President Trump, When the water started coming into the empty reservoir across the street from us last Friday I thought maybe it was a little tiny consolation prize from the universe since all but one GOP Senator (plus one Democrat) signaled their intention to support Brett K’s nomination that day. I know it’s a … Continue reading Our reservoir is coming back online
