Dear President Trump, You are probably aware of this, but just in case you missed the memo, your shorts are smoking, dude. Even the people who were trying to protect you (Morrison: that transcript was so sensitive it had to be squirreled away, but in no way was it relaying anything remotely impeachable) are making … Continue reading A rage attack, perhaps?
Dear President Trump, I feel like I should go to Target and buy up a bunch of lipsticks to send you so you can try to pretty up the pig that, to you, is the lost Kentucky Governor’s seat. There’s no amount of spin that’s going to convince any sentient being that you all are … Continue reading HHS evils weren’t enough to prevent GOP losses
Dear President Trump, Recently I was on the periphery of a conversation that kept dipping in and out of tense territory. It never quite landed squarely in the squirmy zone, but it still had me wishing it would end much sooner than it did. The first person involved made a compassionate, yet practical, argument for … Continue reading Housing for goodness’ sake
Dear President Trump, This will likely seem a strange place from which to launch today’s letter to you, but bear with me and we’ll see if I can pull it off. Two minutes ago I gave one of our toilets a “good enough” scrub with the toilet brush. While doing so, I remembered how a … Continue reading A case for impeachment
Dear President Trump, Last night Laura and I had our evening chores (including my letter to you) done early enough that we could take a walk while it was still light out. We piled the dogs into the car and drove up to the odd gated-yet-open community at the top of the ridge that overlooks … Continue reading 1 weird rainbow and 2 cloud unicorns
Dear President Trump, You’re the master of the aggrieved victim charade and we’re watching yet another round of your ‘woe is me, what have I ever done to deserve this?’ performance as the House Judicial Committee gears up with their record requests. I know they’re being accused, and not just by you and yours, of … Continue reading “Victimhood for Dummies”
Dear President Trump, Today our son would have been 22 had he lived. Really though, for him to have lived we would have needed to wait two or three more months so he could be born fully formed. In another version of life, he’d likely be gearing up to graduate from college this spring and … Continue reading UN draft resolution to curb gender-based violence; guess who’s opposing it?
Dear President Trump, I fell again this morning. I left late and was trying to make up time by running on stretches where I normally walk because of the poor pavement. I went down hard but missed my face this time so don’t have to have more orthodontic work done. I did, however, wrench my … Continue reading I fell again and I’m really cranky
Dear President Trump, Yesterday our VA facility’s Military Sexual Trauma (MST) Coordinator emailed out a really nice self-care handout for us to share with veterans who are feeling stressed and triggered by what is going on in the national news. The handout was created at the national level to make sure that our veterans with … Continue reading Hell to pay
Dear President Trump, I’m sitting at Regan National with a 3+ hour wait before my flight since it didn’t seem worth slogging around town with my suitcase. I am bummed, though, that it didn’t feel safe to wait to leave tomorrow as I really wanted to go to the National Portrait Gallery to see the … Continue reading A vote of confidence
