To: The Subpar Bogey Man Before I launch into today’s letter for real, I need to tell you that a friend pointed out my terrible typo yesterday granting you another month in office. OMG – that was a big biff. To set the record straight – I know perfectly well that inauguration day is January … Continue reading My terrible typo and some happy headlines
To: The Resentful Angry (would-be) Tyrant (aka The RAT) After reading that you’re being evasive about whether you’ll attend the virtual G20 this weekend I really wanted to use the word “slacker” in the salutation today but decided to go with something that can be shortened to a punchy acronym instead. I figure that the … Continue reading Resentments or gratitude ~ choose wisely
President* Trump, We’re getting down to the wire, aren’t we? Are you a nervous wreck? It’s not very charitable of me, but I hope you are. Even less charitable of me, I hope you’re having all sorts of symptoms associated with being a nervous wreck, to include even worse than usual concentration, restlessness, sweaty palms, … Continue reading Nervous wrecks ‘R US
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, 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, One of the things I most appreciate about Laura is that she’s an excellent curator – for the entirety of our now quite long relationship, she’s played me music she thinks I’ll like (most of which I do like), pointed me to books, movies, and articles that she knows I’ll find interesting and … Continue reading Other countries’ histories are instructive too
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?
