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, Is Rudy G actually on your payroll? And if so, whose idea was it to hire him? Are you keeping him on the team? It’s hard to imagine he could do any more damage if you were to send him packing. Even though he’s trying to dig himself out of the ditch … Continue reading What is Rudy up to (and does he even know)?
Dear President Trump, I’m afraid Ted Koppel is right (WP op ed) that many of us are addicted to you and the drama you ignite on a near-hourly basis and that we aren’t going to simply ignore you when you finally leave office. He warns that for many, you’ll be the martyred ex-leader who righteously … Continue reading Would be happy to go cold turkey….
Dear President Trump, On the evening dog walk I noticed a bedraggled Shasta daisy at the edge of a neglected yard. The daisy is clearly left over from last summer; it’s missing a bunch of petals and looks pretty cock-eyed. But – it’s still standing and that’s both kind of awesome and kind of disturbing. … Continue reading A deadly dangerous shiny object
Dear President Trump, I ended up listening to the first two minutes of your Oval Office charade yesterday evening, but unlike Stephen Colbert’s prediction that I’d want to hurt myself, I just wanted to hurt you (which, of course I would never do – just for the record – no matter how much I want … Continue reading “Fool on the hill….”
Dear President Trump, Along with much of the rest of the country (apparently), I’ve been thinking a lot about Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s assertion the other day that she and the other Democrats in Congress are going to impeach you and specifically about her choice term for you: “mother*cker.” Of course it would have been a … Continue reading When the epithet fits….
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, Yesterday someone I was talking with dropped “well, tomorrow Nancy is coming” into the conversation and as she visibly relaxed, I felt my body tension dip too. Nancy is coming. Today. I know we can’t pin too much hope or put too much pressure on any one person, but OMG am I … Continue reading Nancy has arrived 🙂
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, I think you’d probably count me among ‘the haters’ that you so generously wished a Happy New Year this morning, so thank you (I guess) – it’s a smidge better than telling us to ‘eat shit and die,’ which really was the very clear subtext. Last year I told you that I … Continue reading Happy New Year
