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, When we watched the new Gillette ad last night, Laura pointed out that there were about 220k likes and 530k dislikes and now this evening the numbers are 343k and 724k, respectively. The likes are gaining a bit, but that’s still proportionately and numerically an awful lot of dislikes. Seems Gillette struck … Continue reading Gillette and identity politics
Dear President Trump, Can you stand all this positivity emanating from the House? It’s like a fresh breeze blew in yesterday morning and pushed aside the fetid toxic air that’s been choking the country the last two years. There’s so much to take in already and there are new things popping up every few minutes, … Continue reading A fresh breeze
Dear President Trump, It looks like if I went to a National Park or Monument (or, starting today, any of the Smithsonian Museums) and wanted to send you a postcard to mark the occasion, I’d need to purchase the postcard somewhere other than those places since the visitor centers are closed along with nearly all … Continue reading Adding to your legacy
Dear President Trump, We’ve gotten almost half an inch of rain in just over four hours this afternoon. There’s standing water all over and things are a sloppy mess. The wind has died down so hopefully we won’t have trees or power lines coming down. However, the ground is completely saturated and I’m worried about … Continue reading Courage, not hope
Dear President Trump, Because I’m not yet sure what I think about your performance piece with Representative Pelosi and Senator Schumer (aka “Nancy and Chuck”) today, I’m going to write to you instead about something I’ve been mulling over for the last few days. There’s no way in hell this will be the conclusion the … Continue reading Played, big time
Dear President Trump, Robby Mook has a strong Op Ed in the WP this morning. He lays out how it’s been clear from the get go that Russia interfered in the 2016 election. As Clinton’s campaign manager he appeared on numerous news shows right after the first DNC email dump and told the nation that … Continue reading Painfully obvious stuff
Dear President Trump, I feel a little bad about this, but until today I wasn’t paying attention to the plan to appoint your Fox News friend, Heather Nauret as the US ambassador to the United Nations. It was just so over the top absurd that my brain couldn’t get it to register as a real … Continue reading Saboteur in Chief
Dear President Trump, Here’s something to be grateful for on this Thanksgiving Day, 2018 – a Republican Senator (Todd Young of Indiana) was quoted in the WP as saying “Economic interests are important, but they are not the most important thing,” in reference to the lack of real effort by the Saudis to minimize the … Continue reading Bits to be grateful for
Dear President Trump, Who were you so busy calling on Monday that you couldn’t make it to Arlington National Cemetery? Amazing. You sure are piling on the ignoble firsts, aren’t you? It seems especially stupid for you to disrespect veterans. I’m seeing reports that they voted for you 2:1 over Clinton, but the veterans I … Continue reading Surely they know you love them….
