Dear Mr. President – April 24, 2020

Dear Mr. President,

So, I guess the show is over. Apparently, yesterday’s “briefing” was just too much for you. Instead of people understanding sarcasm and humor or appreciating the talents and new ideas you brought to us, the American people, and the “nasty” press made fun of you. I know you appreciate opportunities to verbally spar with the press or tweet out clever put downs, but you have decided, in your great wisdom, that it’s time to do these things another way.

I can’t stress enough how much I will miss these two hour marathons. Anyhow, we can always go on line and look for the reruns.

Many of us have already been looking for other opportunities to grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally during this time of quarantine. I read today in the New York Times, that you have also grown a little bored and have some cabin fever and maybe have too much screen time.

I am here to help with some new ideas. When the quarantine began I planned to use the time to 1) learn a new language. 2) exercise every day, 3) read all the unread books in my house and 4) start a journal. I have to say that it’s harder to do all this than I thought. I did read two chapters of a book I’d been meaning to read for several years, and I’ve kind of started journaling. Yeah!

But, I have some great ideas for you. How about using this free time to study medicine. You could take classes on line, like the rest of the American People. Check out the spring schedules at Harvard, Stanford and Princeton. You could spend a part of every day with your youngest son. It must be so boring for him to stay in his room all day. Maybe the two of you could exercise together or to play Dungeons and Dragons?

You could share your exercise routines or tell us about your avatar on D and D. How about taking the American People on a Virtual Tour of the White House? You could do it with Melania; she must be a bit bored as well.

One more idea; sign up for Master Class! There are many opportunities to learn something new, taught by masters of the topics. You could take a cooking class or a class on witchcraft and learn how to put hexes on people, or, and this is my preference for you, take a class on humor! You could work on your delivery by listening to comics talk about writing comedy or you could watch videos of great comedians of old, like Red Skelton or Don Rickles.

Anyhow, good luck with your next act. I’m looking forward to hearing from you again.
