Dear President Trump, Happy Solstice! Did you and the fam do anything to celebrate the shortest day of the year or did you studiously avoid it because you don’t acknowledge things that are the shortest, smallest, briefest? You generally are only in it for the biggest, hugest, longest whatevers so you probably let this day … Continue reading Fixes
“defiance of something”
Dear President Trump, Before I settle down and tell you about my biggest learn of the morning I’m going to throw some popcorn thoughts at you. Here goes: I so, so wish that the WP (and other outlets) would stop saying what you “believe” as though they know what you believe. In this morning’s long … Continue reading “defiance of something”
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’
It’s not about Vladimir’s vanity
Dear President Trump, What’s the thread connecting a call from our daughter in the middle of the night last night about the Cave fire evacuation zone closing in on Santa Barbara and the following happy quip from your BFF Vladimir? “Thank God no one is accusing us anymore of interfering in the U.S. elections,” Russian … Continue reading It’s not about Vladimir’s vanity
Dignified, principled competence
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
What gives with Trump being happy about the hearings?
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?
Proud “Never Trumpers”
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”
No, “men” does not now mean “all people”
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”
Dear President Trump, There’ve now been a handful of rat-sightings around our next-door neighbor’s house, which probably means they are scurrying around ours too. My favorite sighting was the other morning first thing when I let the dogs out in the front yard. It was still dark but with all the street lights it’s never … Continue reading Showboaty rats
