Dear President Trump, A wave of sadness washed over me on our way to where we planned to walk the dogs this morning. It was no doubt fueled in part by being exhausted from having been at the vet ER at midnight last night with the little dog who couldn’t stop licking. He seems better … Continue reading Not condemning white nationalists encourages them
Dear President Trump, I’m home sick today (on official sick leave) so I can write to you whenever I want and don’t have to be careful about avoiding my tour of duty hours. In a way it’s nice, but I have to be careful that I don’t squander my naptime in favor of fine-tuning this … Continue reading H.R. 1 ~ “Power grab for the people!”
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, I bet you’re happy to put February 2019 behind you; it was a rough month for you. Happily for the rest of the world, it looks like March 2019 will be a rough month for you too, what with having to waddle around with your tail between your legs after your not-so … Continue reading How it’s done!
Dear President Trump, I’ve probably raised this issue with you in past letters (I don’t feel like checking), but it’s kind of like a sore, wobbly tooth that my tongue can’t leave alone so I’m returning to the question of how it is that your son, Donald Jr., could make such a clear attempt at … Continue reading What gives?
Dear President Trump, In Soul Choir this morning we practiced the anthem we’ll sing next week – “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley. It’s not an easy song from a musical standpoint so I was really grateful when the musicians among us asked that we go over certain parts (repeatedly) since it was tough for them … Continue reading The awesome power of a free mind
Dear President Trump, This morning….. Happy Valentine’s Day. I’m guessing you aren’t exactly feeling the love from your loudest peeps as they attempt to raise the freak-out level over the compromise budget bill that most certainly will not buy you or them a wall. In fact, I bet you’re getting many a nasty-gram as you … Continue reading Burnt toast and hogwash
Dear President Trump, As I hunkered in for another day of this freakish (new normal?) Seattle weather I couldn’t figure out which of the following articles to read: the one about the woman who reported harassment only to have the company turn on her; the one about massive die-offs among insect populations; the one about … Continue reading ‘When we get past the ego and the pride, we’re good’
Dear President Trump, It’s snowing again and there’s a film of ice over about a quarter of the reservoir across the street. We’re supposed to get another 3-ish inches of snow tonight and then around 6-8” more tomorrow and a totally unclear amount on Tuesday. I think a lot of us are going to be … Continue reading Good ideas
Dear President Trump, I just made myself read the WP article about Elizabeth Warren and her claims of Cherokee ancestry. Before that I read the HP piece about Amy Klobuchar having trouble staffing her campaign because many of her former staffers say she was awful to work for. A couple of weeks ago Bernie Sanders … Continue reading Where do we draw the line?
