Dear President Trump, For a few days now, I’ve been chewing on something to tell you about, trying to figure out how to frame it, what to include, what to let stay shadowy. This morning while I was getting some exercise I finally decided I was ready to tackle it (I’ll tell you what “it” … Continue reading “Atmospheric discrimination”
Dear President Trump, A friend of mine who served in Viet Nam came up with a great play on “Mr. Big Stuff” that also fits you terrifically – maybe even better – “Mr. Bone Spurs.” You might have to reread yesterday’s letter to get it, but I think both versions of Mr. BS nicely conjure … Continue reading How is it Trump knows no one will testify?
Dear President Trump, Happy Tax (Evasion) Day! Is the “ha – they are such fools, they don’t know how I’m fleecing them!” glee you typically feel on April 15th somewhat dampened this year by the looming threat of having your recent tax history on display for all to see? Sarah Sander’s latest missive regarding your … Continue reading Donald Trump ~ George Washington; compare and contrast
Dear President Trump, Laura has really cut back her Twitter time since too much isn’t good for her equilibrium, but she still finds good stuff. The best bit she sent me today was a clip that a parent taped of their kid who’s maybe 15 months old. The child is sitting facing backwards in their … Continue reading Getting a grip and letting go
Dear President Trump, Last night Laura was playing a clip of something from Twitter and as I listened I puzzled over who was speaking, having never heard the voice before. Turns out it was your boy Jared talking with Laura Ingraham. Calmly and with great good humor he told her how all the crazy falsehoods … Continue reading Tricia Newbold deserves a Congressional Medal of Honor
Dear President Trump, Although sickening beyond compare, it was validating to see my suspicion confirmed this morning that the NRA did indeed have its thumb on the conspiracy theory scale regarding the MSD school shooting. Your camp sure has some choice assholes in its corner. Yesterday someone who reads my Trump letters blog asked me … Continue reading The “protect the weakling’s ego” case for obstruction
Dear President Trump, I’ve pulled back from the “no further indictments” ledge I was on yesterday having seen commentary from quite a number of more levelheaded people who are reminding everyone that there’ve already been indictments of and guilty pleas from many people in your inner circle regarding Russia and that it’s not always possible … Continue reading Indictments or no, there’ve been plenty of high crimes and misdemeanors
Dear President Trump, Christchurch, NZ is 8,904 miles from Washington D.C. as the crow flies and yet ideologically the distance between the men who murdered 49 people during prayer services yesterday and you is not nearly that far, your thoughts and prayers Tweet notwithstanding. The men who carried out the horrifically well-orchestrated attacks on two … Continue reading Words have life and death consequences
Dear President Trump, So there’s probably not a sentient being in the entire country who doesn’t think Cohen is basically a self-serving sleeze. Pretty much everyone sees through the B.S. that he was so blinded by loyalty to you that he did countless ruthless, unethical, greedy-ass things and probably hundreds (so countable) of illegal things … Continue reading Sadly, hats off to Vladimir, again
Dear President Trump, The Seattle area is having its own mini-version of the polar vortex. The temperature didn’t get above 30 today. We got about 6” of snow so schools were closed and those of us who could work from home, did. The streets are still a scary mess. We’ve only had one day of … Continue reading Why are you allowed to do this?
