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, Does anyone in the front office at Fox News owe you a big favor? Because if so, you probably want to cash it in pretty quickly and have Chris Wallace removed. I don’t think you can afford to have a Fox News anchor seriously pushing back on your press secretary on the … Continue reading Fox News and independent thought
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, 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
Dear President Trump, Last night I was fussing a bit about how tedious it’s been writing to you lately and Laura suggested I sometimes switch things up and send you postcard length notes instead of the longer letters we are both accustomed to. I’ve never been very good at writing short notes (I’m pretty much … Continue reading Wind and rain and more wind and rain
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, When I read last week that you’d been planning a 16-day golfing vacation down at Mar-a-Lago I told Laura that it might be worth the $5 billion dollars in wall money if it meant you’d be preoccupied with lowering your handicap for over two weeks. I was actually kidding – the whole … Continue reading Personality Disorder twofer
Dear President Trump, Today our son would have been 22 had he lived. Really though, for him to have lived we would have needed to wait two or three more months so he could be born fully formed. In another version of life, he’d likely be gearing up to graduate from college this spring and … Continue reading UN draft resolution to curb gender-based violence; guess who’s opposing it?
