President* Trump, I know this is something of a theme by now, but I need to credit you with pushing me to learn all sorts of things that never would’ve occurred to me to learn pre-you. To be sure, I was probably exposed to much of it in a long-ago high school civics class, but … Continue reading The imperative of acing Electoral College 101
President* Trump, Thinking about the young queer person my friend described yesterday, my brother, my Black women friends, Laura, myself, the people sleeping in tents down the street from us in the context of this colossal mess we’ve made has me trying to piece together the puzzle of identity politics. This is also driven by … Continue reading Identity politics revisited
President* Trump, I know you don’t care at all, but there are lots of us out here who’re struggling if not out right suffering. This morning a friend texted and said that today’s her husband’s birthday but between ACB getting to join the newly cemented Supremacist (this is me) Court, the election, COVID, and everything … Continue reading May we refuse to be broken
President* Trump, You know, there’s some relief in hearing that you all have officially thrown in the towel on any attempts to control COVID, that you’re finally owning the fact that you aren’t in the business of attempting to limit the infection rates. It definitely totally sucks that this is your official truth, but it’s … Continue reading So much for an ounce of prevention…
President* Trump, The two recent Executive Orders pertaining to the federal workforce are certainly doozies. I’m referring to the one you issued on September 22nd entitled “Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping” and the one you issued on October 21st entitled “Executive Order on Creating Schedule F In The Excepted Service.” Seems to … Continue reading They’ve shown their hand, and it’s trembling
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….?
