Dear President Trump, Happy MLK Day to you and your family. I was glad to see that you and Mike Pence attended an MLK Day celebration today. Did it perhaps inspire you to unstick yourself from your asinine fixation on “the border wall” so that you can stop this government shutdown of yours that’s differentially … Continue reading The case for booting Pence too
Dear President Trump, Are you breathing a sigh of relief tonight? Seems like, for now, you dodged a bullet with Mueller’s team having said: “BuzzFeed’s description of specific statements to the special counsel’s office, and characterization of documents and testimony obtained by this office, regarding Michael Cohen’s congressional testimony are not accurate.” The Justice Department … Continue reading What is Mueller up to?
Dear President Trump, Is Rudy G actually on your payroll? And if so, whose idea was it to hire him? Are you keeping him on the team? It’s hard to imagine he could do any more damage if you were to send him packing. Even though he’s trying to dig himself out of the ditch … Continue reading What is Rudy up to (and does he even know)?
Dear President Trump, I’m afraid Ted Koppel is right (WP op ed) that many of us are addicted to you and the drama you ignite on a near-hourly basis and that we aren’t going to simply ignore you when you finally leave office. He warns that for many, you’ll be the martyred ex-leader who righteously … Continue reading Would be happy to go cold turkey….
Dear President Trump, Yesterday William Galston of the Brookings Institute got a lot of pixels in the WP, first in an article led by your favorite reporter, Jim Acosta, and then in an editorial by Ann Tumulty. Galston was quoted by Acosta as having said this about you: “He is determined, as he has been … Continue reading Supersaturated
Dear President Trump, I heard your interview on Fox tonight. When the anchor asked if you had ever worked for Russia you pulled out the righteous indignation and threw a few smoke bombs, but you never denied it. I listened to that exchange right after reading the WP article about how you confiscated your interpreter’s … Continue reading Smoking gun(s)
Dear President Trump, On the evening dog walk I noticed a bedraggled Shasta daisy at the edge of a neglected yard. The daisy is clearly left over from last summer; it’s missing a bunch of petals and looks pretty cock-eyed. But – it’s still standing and that’s both kind of awesome and kind of disturbing. … Continue reading A deadly dangerous shiny object
Dear President Trump, It’s late – after 9pm and I’m only now getting to your letter. There’s no good reason for such a late start; we didn’t do anything particularly fun this evening or out of the ordinary. We just went and got our usual Friday night Vietnamese food, did the grocery shopping, and walked … Continue reading System failures
Dear President Trump, When I read last week that you’d been planning a 16-day golfing vacation down at Mar-a-Lago I told Laura that it might be worth the $5 billion dollars in wall money if it meant you’d be preoccupied with lowering your handicap for over two weeks. I was actually kidding – the whole … Continue reading Personality Disorder twofer
Dear President Trump, I was mistaken the other day – the video about “plogging” did have some low-key music to carry the litter plucking joggers along. I just thought it was silent because I had the sound on my laptop turned off. Want to know why? Probably not, but I’ll tell you anyway – I … Continue reading Seems like it’s about time to panic
