Dear Donald Trump,

Dear Donald Trump,

I’m only using “Dear” in the most traditional sense, not because I have an affection for you, but because it is traditional and respectful to start a letter that way. Traditional and respectful are both things with which you seem unfamiliar. I have taken it upon myself to write this letter to you on behalf of the rest of the human race. Yes, I said the rest of the human race, as if we are separate from you. Your words and actions seem to indicate that you are very separate from us.

To borrow from George Bailey, on behalf of the human race, I’d like to say: Just remember this, Mr. Potter Trump, that this rabble you’re talking about, they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community country. Well, is it too much to have them work and pay and live and die in a couple of decent rooms and a bath? Anyway, my father didn’t think so. People were human beings to him, but to you, a warped, frustrated old man, they’re cattle. Well, in my book he died a much richer man than you’ll ever be.

Designating myself to represent the rest of the human race may seem arrogant on my part, but I assume that is a characteristic that you understand and respect. I know that you always think that you’re the smartest guy in the room, but the smartest guy in any room is never smarter than the rest of the room together. I’d like to see you get you’re hearing problem checked out. You’re an older man and you seem to have significant trouble hearing your advisers, your cabinet members, and the American people telling you to shut the eff up. Maybe if you aren’t good at listening, you’ll be good at reading. Maybe people will like this blog post so much that it gets retweeted to you. That’s a medium you seem to understand.

You seem fixated on North Korea and their crazy dictator right now. That’s valid. They pose a danger to the rest of the world if they start launching nuclear missiles. You and Kim Jong-Un are trading verbal nuclear missiles right now like two junior high bullies in a pissing contest. How about, for a change,  you be the adult in this one. With all your “fire and fury” and “Locked and loaded” comments, do you know who you sound like? You sound like Kim Jong-Un, a crazy, irrational dictator. In the words of President Teddy Roosevelt, “speak softly and carry a big stick.” Look, we’re the United States. Everyone knows we have the big stick. We have the worlds largest arsenal and the worlds largest military force. You have the big stick and everybody, including Kim Jong-Un knows it. Just shut the eff up and take care of the problem the way your cabinet and advisers, except your son-in law, tell you to.

As for your domestic agenda, what is it? Is it to reverse everything your predecessor did? That seems to be all you’re doing. Like Richard Gere’s character in Pretty Woman learned, if you want to be remembered, build something. If you just destroy without replacing you’ll have a hole. And people will regard you as one as well.

If you want to act like a dictator, go back to a reality TV show. In the real world, your act doesn’t work. Name one real life crazy dictator that had a reign that ended well? You know, if you don’t like this President job, you can resign. Nobody will think worse of you. It’s impossible to. If your ridiculous behavior continues, it’s possible the American people will say, to borrow a phrase from a clown I saw on TV, “You’re fired!”

  1. AMEN!!!!!

  2. Phil Taylor for President AND Sexiest Man Alive!!!!

  3. My name is Marissa Bergen and I approve this message.

  4. Co-signed!

  5. Nice job, Phil.I would go one step further and suggest that if Trump were to resign his approval rating would go through the roof. For sure.

  6. I read one of his tweets earlier and it was rational, sensible and called for peace – I fear he’s been a victim of a cyber attack…

  7. Well done. This is like if I said one-tenth of what I think and of course, very, very nicely compared to how I think. Well done, I say. Well done!

  8. I literally hate this man!!

  9. I wish he would disappear … if only. All his crazy stance is scaring the heck out of me as my daughter is planning on going to South Korea for a year to work this autumn.

  10. Your opening statement alone says a lot! Well said!!

  11. hehehe I remember telling myself 6 months ago. There is NO WAY this guy is gonna last. We just can’t allow it. But at some point, we really have to start blaming ourselves right?

  12. As a member of the human race and as a member of what used to be the good ole USA, I thank you. Sadly, words get nowhere. I’ve read other letters others have written him. Things continue to deteriorate.
    Far past time to invoke the 25th?

  13. I sure hope he can find someone to read this to him…

  14. As a member of the human race from the UK I can’t imagine what it must be like to have him as your president! I imagine it may even be worst than have Theresa May as prime minister

  15. We opted to skip our annual visit to see friends and family in the US this year precisely because of the political climate surrounding #45. Loved reading your ‘open letter’ which was succinct while still getting your point across. Your words, “… resign. Nobody will think worse of you. It’s impossible to” were spot on. Humor is the only way we’re going to muck our way through this mess! Anita

  16. I hope the next out of the Trump show is the Donald. But I don’t think it will happen. Congrats on being the big up your blogger for this week

  17. Reblogged this on VH Sisters and commented:
    This blog post is very interesting.

  18. ‘You seem fixated on North Korea and their crazy dictator right now.’ I love it!

  19. He cannot read, write, or hear. Unfortunately, he can speak…incoherently and often.

  20. His own supporters are losing the trust on him. He completely have mixed feelings on DACA and couldn’t clearly indicate what the Transgender military ban meant.
