Dear Mr. President,
You know I always try to be truthful with you. Last night was “horrible”, “a disgrace”, “disgusting”, “ugly”, “pathetic”, “weak” and “like nobody would ever believe”. In short, it was a “disaster”. You wore your “I’m really mad “face, waved your hands about like you were ready to sweep all the papers off a desk, and pursed your lips so tightly they looked like a pout. You turned beet red and there was steam coming out of your ears. The only thing that wasn’t coming out of you was Truth, Justice and the American Way. Seriously, Mr. President, is that how you treat anyone who doesn’t kiss your ring?
There are words that describe this type of behavior. One is “bully”. I don’t think that is a completely true description of your behavior last night. We often use the word to describe someone who tries to use power, intimidation, violence or fear to control someone else. You didn’t intimidate or scare anyone, but you did manage to demean the Office of the President of the United States and threaten our democracy. Everyone already knew you would make the same accusations you always make about other people, the media and anyone who challenges you. You shout, bluster, glare (ooh-not scary), and then tell ridiculous lies while shouting over anyone who tries to speak.
There was absolutely nothing from you about what your plans are for another four years. There are no ideas from you on how to solve some very important problems for this country. In fact, you can’t even acknowledge there are problems, except for dead trees and leaves in California forests, most of which are under Federal jurisdiction. You made a decision in January to ban some people from China (not everyone) and that did help but nowhere near enough and you have undone that help by your actions, inactions and untruths (lies) over the past 8 months. Your non-plan for the economy seems based on your business acumen, which seems based on cheating, lying and running your businesses into the ground. As VPBiden would say, “C’mon man”.
There was a very large audience for the rumble in Cleveland, but the ratings were a flop. You won’t have a very large audience for any future debates because no one wants to watch POTUS turn into a player on WrestleMania. A friend taught me a new word (thanks Marci) that I’d like to use rather than “bully”. It comes from British and Scottish slang and it’s really fun to say. “Cockwomble”. It means “a person, usually male, prone to making outrageously stupid statements and /or inappropriate behavior while generally having a very high opinion of their own wisdom and importance”.
Check it out.
