Dear President Trump, What to say today? I don’t know. I don’t have anything that feels wise or clever or even comforting to you or to myself to say right now. Despite the fact that the House will impeach you later today and the fact that it’s necessary and right for them to do this, … Continue reading Impeachment Day
Dear President Trump, I accidentally just typed “Dare” for “Dear” and almost let it stand. It’s a pretty great thing to riff off of: “Dare President Trump…..” To do what? What if we dared you to be kind for a day – to everyone? What if we dared you to go and spend an entire … Continue reading It’s dire and then some
Dear President Trump, You’re no doubt aware that there’s a lot of talk about the GOP Senators who’ve already gone on record saying that they plan to acquit you. Actually, you’ve probably been sorting them into “naughty” and “nice” piles ahead of Christmas as the early adopters (co-opters) put their tent stakes through the heart … Continue reading It’s not ok. It’s just not.
Dear President Trump, I had a late meeting yesterday and didn’t leave work until about 6. Typically this means I’ve missed all the news on NPR and instead get Fresh Air, which, depending on the topic and guest, is either a nice break from the usual or leads me to decide that quiet is the … Continue reading Toxic headwinds
Dear President Trump, Happy Articles of Impeachment Announcement Day. Yes, it’s a bummer the Democrats only went with abuse of power and obstruction tightly focused on your dealings with Ukraine, but the strategy of keeping things simple and straightforward is not unreasonable given how adept you and yours are at obfuscation and misdirection. I’m thinking … Continue reading Lying-Sack-of-Stuff deconstructed
Dear President Trump, It’s garbage day today in our neighborhood (we call Tuesday mornings “Garbage Morn” while Monday nights are “Garbage Eve”) and everything looked exceptionally orderly and tidy on my walk this morning. The crows were still asleep so they hadn’t pried off any lids to get to potential foodstuffs and it’s not a … Continue reading ‘Garbage Morn’
Dear President Trump, I’ve got another “what gives” for you today. Here goes – what gives with Oversight America having been able to get those documents of Rudy’s (to include phone records and emails) linking him to Mike P. through the Freedom of Information Act when Congress couldn’t get them for the impeachment inquiry? Don’t … Continue reading Dignified, principled competence
Dear President Trump, Apparently you were crowing this morning on Fox & Friends that the Democrats look the fools now that the scheduled impeachment hearings have wrapped up. Laura read me something from Twitter about how you were jubilant over how it all went. I don’t what the original source for that was, but even … Continue reading What gives with Trump being happy about the hearings?
Dear President Trump, How are you this morning? How are you doing holding your temper in check? I’m guessing the answer to both questions is something along the lines of “not so good” (sic). I bet you’re not doing so hot as you wait to see what Gordon Sondland has to say this time around. … Continue reading Proud “Never Trumpers”
Dear President Trump, Did you tune in this morning to Nunes’s screed about the impeachment inquiry into your Majesty? I couldn’t bring myself to listen and only watched the live closed-captioning for a few minutes – where do you find these louts? Over the course of the hearings thus far it’s almost been funny watching … Continue reading No, “men” does not now mean “all people”
