Dear Mr. President – March 26, 2020

Dear Mr. President,

I had hoped to hear your entire performance this evening but, unfortunately, I had other things to do (cleaning for Pesach, a Bat Mitzvah lesson with a younger friend and a Zoom happy hour with girlfriends.). Still, I did manage to hear a bit of it and it sounds like everything is terrific, tremendous, great and incredible. Despite only hearting about 15 minutes worth of the briefing/rally, you used those words 39 times. Wow! That’s amazing! I know everyone is feeling a lot better after hearing how positive you are. And, I know that it is all due to your incredible, very strong and tremendous leadership because you told us that at least 19 times during the short period I listened. I may have missed a few. I just want to let you know that you do not need to repeat everything you say over and over (about 20 repetitions that I counted) because we so closely follow what you have to say. I’m sure there is a transcript of what you say as well, so that it is recorded for history. The numbers, the numbers; it’s hard to follow all of them. It looks like you are counting them for us and they are very high numbers. Hundreds, thousands and millions of masks, other equipment and unemployed, and money from the tax payers. Thank you so much.

By the way, what are all the governors giving you in return because I read that this is a 2-way street. What do you need? Thanks you for not taking a salary? A gold star? Think about how they can repay you for invoking a National Disaster and then acting on it, sort of. I also read that you think some counties are safer from the virus and can return to normal very quickly. They will be able to congregate in crowded churches.

You do know that those of us who celebrate Pesach (Passover) congregate in crowded living rooms to read the Haggadah and eat, a lot. We aren’t doing that this year so, thanks, we are saving a lot of money by not needing to cook for large crowds.

I did not hear VP Pence tonight so I don’t know how much to drink but maybe someone can let me know. PS: Some people (a sister-in-law and a daughter) wrote to local radio stations to ask them not to play these daily updates. For some reason, they think you are using them as rallies and not really letting the experts (they are incredible) speak enough.
