President* Trump, You didn’t want us to panic. How thoughtful of you. What a mensch, always looking out for the country – that’s you! No doubt about it. It didn’t take any sort of genius to know that you’d use the notion that you didn’t want to frighten or panic us as the out when … Continue reading What’s the plan?
President* Trump, It’s not very often that the procrastination gods smile on me, but today they did indeed. I tweaked my back on Monday taking the sheets off the bed and haven’t slept well since so couldn’t face letter writing this morning. I really dislike putting it off until the evening, especially during the week, … Continue reading The procrastination gods smiled on me today
President* Trump, Hey, I’ve got six new one-way pen pals, or seven if you count the ‘cc line. I’m not sure how long I’ll keep it up but I wrote group emails to the USPS Board of Governors with DeJoy cc’d Saturday and Sunday urging them to kick-start their moral compasses and stand up to … Continue reading Corruption lurking below the surface
President* Trump, So I swear that the WP article drilling down on how the numbers of covid-19-related deaths and hospitalizations are only temporarily lagging behind the surging case numbers came out overnight, after I wrote yesterday’s letter to you (WP title: “Coronavirus Deaths Lag Behind Surging Infections But May Catch Up Soon”). As you can … Continue reading How about we don’t just live with this?
President* Trump, What do the following three things have to do with each other? 1) The Friday night attempt to force US Attorney of the NY Southern District, Geoffrey Berman, to resign followed by his Saturday morning firing when he refused to play along; 2) having a 62-year old woman arrested as she knelt to … Continue reading More dot connecting
Dear President Trump, It was years (and years) ago when some news outlet, probably the NYT since that’s what I was reading back in the early days of your reign of terror, reported on your habit of insisting that you be served two scoops of vanilla ice cream with your gorgeous, most beautiful-ever chocolate cake, … Continue reading The tell of two scoops
Dear President Trump, Are you and your posse really trying to bamboozle the American people with all your crap about how Donny-on-the-spot you were regarding covid-19? Is that your real goal? Somehow I don’t think it is, if for no other reason than you seem to be preternaturally good at meeting your goals and currently … Continue reading He’s running the clock and we’re letting him
Dear President Trump, This morning on my allowed walk for exercise, it occurred to me to wonder why we’ve not been hearing anything about covid-19 in Russia, as in zip, nada, radio silence. There are a lot of people in Russia, healthcare isn’t so hot in Russia, and, very importantly, Russia has the same winter … Continue reading POTUS and Putin share another playbook
Dear President Trump, I am reading things besides editorials and I am reading editorialists besides Jennifer Rubin, but I want to make a quick note that in her piece this morning about Buttigieg’s decision to leave the race, she calls on Klobuchar and Bloomberg to step up and step out as well (by this evening … Continue reading Straight up ~ I want everyone to see that the emperor is butt naked
Dear President Trump, Jennifer Rubin’s WP editorial today reminding us that democracy is not a meritocracy was a bittersweet read as it sinks in that Elizabeth Warren almost certainly doesn’t have a viable path to the nomination. Rubin clearly thinks Warren is meritorious, along with Klobuchar and Buttigieg. She notes that Steyer probably should have … Continue reading Go figure….
