Dear Mr. President,
Every day I try to learn new things; it’s a great way to face each morning with optimism and hope. Today I learned that, Chuck Woolery, a host of the tv show Wheel of Fortune, is an expert on medicine, epidemiology and politics. I didn’t know he was a host of that show! I actually never even watched the show. He explained that the “CDC, the Media, Democrats, our Doctors, not all, but most” are not to be trusted. They apparently are all working together to defeat YOU in November. Who knew? They must be Zooming with each other every day to plan what to say and how to lie to the American People. You retweeted his words so it seems like this game show host is your new expert on the President’s Corona Virus Task Force. I can’t wait to read about his advice on what to do with the spike of cases in Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and all over the country.
Over the weekend I learned how smart the Secretary of Education, Betsy DeVos is. She had some great advice on how to get all students back in classrooms with teachers along with all the other staff members. I wasn’t really clear on what her plans are, especially on how to do it with contingencies for outbreaks of disease. Perhaps you can explain it more clearly. Did we get the answers to how to do this in a safe manner? She said something like “it’s been done in the private sector” so schools can use those suggestions, options or ideas? Is that what she meant? Also, her threats to take money away from schools and give it to parents to send their children to other schools were very confusing. Maybe I didn’t learn as much as I thought I did.
I also studied some law over the weekend. It’s common knowledge that the President has complete powers to commute people convicted of crimes and to exonerate them if they are already in prison.What I didn’t know was how completely slimy it is to commute Roger Stone. The legal experts and even your political advisors all thought it was a terrible idea to commute his sentence. But, he is such a good friend of yours so I guess it is okay.
There is so much more to learn about. I’m going to spend part of today reading about code breaking by a woman named Elizabeth Smith Friedman who, along with her husband, William Friedman, led the way in code breaking and United States intelligence services. The book is called The Woman Who Smashed Codes by Jason Fagone. Then, I plan to get started on studying Ibram X. Kendi’s book on How To Be An Antiracist. Do you want me to send the books to you next?
