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, 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?
Dear President Trump, Who do you think it was that leaked your schedule? And did s/he really need to leak it? There’s a handy website (Factbase) with your daily schedule and you’ve got lots of “Executive Time” blocked out (in addition to golf time). So, I don’t see why someone would bother with this particular … Continue reading Space to thrive should be a given
Dear President Trump, Since there are both major negatives related to you that burbled up today, as usual, and a really nice positive development to shine light on, this letter will be a bit of a smorgasbord. Negatives first. Earlier in the day a friend treated me to an indignant retelling of an upstate New … Continue reading Major negatives and a positive
Dear President Trump, I found lots of stuff on my walk this morning and there were three things worth keeping – pretty much a banner day. The first (temporary) keepsake is a coin that can be used at the local carwash. The second is a renewable bus pass. I don’t know whether it has any … Continue reading Rewind and replay
Dear President Trump, Would you prefer we go with “Happy Holidays” this year after all? I’m thinking you’d rather not have your base remember how you hosed everyone just before, the day of, and for an as-yet-unknown time after Christmas day, so probably best to skip the “Merry Christmas” greeting enforcement this year. You’ve managed … Continue reading Bullies are losers
Dear President Trump, I just figured out that I accidentally skipped writing out October 31st when I was dating that day’s letter to you and wrote November 1st instead, which means I wished you a happy Transgender Awareness Month a day early. Sorry about that. I didn’t miss writing to you, though, so that’s good. … Continue reading Fears of being checked and balanced
Dear President Trump, Jennifer Rubin (WP) seems to think you’ve made the final pitch in your quest to maximally stoke racial animus and xenophobia before the mid-terms next week with your disgusting ad claiming the Democrats are responsible for Luis Bracamontes, a twice-deported illegal immigrant, having killed two police officers. Unfortunately, I think she’s underestimating … Continue reading Nothing is beneath you. Nothing.
Dear President Trump, I think I’ve told you before that at the beginning of my now 466 page document holding all my letters to you there are a couple of pages of random quotes and ideas that I’ve collected for possible incorporation into some-day letters. I usually just scroll past these bits to the beginning … Continue reading “Love moves the world towards love”
Dear President Trump, Just before I learned about the mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh this morning I read in either the WP or the HP how even with a suspect in custody who clearly supports you, there were still people on the far right yesterday claiming the Democrats or Jews … Continue reading A tiny weight on the side of goodness
