A long-delayed letter to President Trump

Dear Mr. Trump,

One need only to consider a series of posts on Facebook to see how much you are despised in America these days. Well, despised by most of my FB friends. I am sure it’s a left-leaning set, but more and more Americans are sharing these views as you proceed through your first few months in office.

Perhaps you would like to read a sample of what I mean:

Mr trump, our Grandchildren and their grandchildren will dam your name forever for what you our doing to the environment! (not sharing author’s name for his own protection)

It’s amazing, really, that God’s [purported] hand-picked political prophet still lost the popular vote by three million, required the help of Russian agents, needed a gift from the FBI director, and counted on his opponent’s campaign grossly miscalculating its support (The Friendly Atheist)

Rex Tillerson and Donald Trump have no idea what they are doing when it comes to foreign policy and are a danger to our allies and the entire planet. (Democratic Coalition Against Trump)

I could go on for days, but really wanted to share with you my own thoughts.

There is a good reason your popularity has sunk to 35% and will sink further. The wider American public is gradually recognizing what many of us have known from the beginning: you are incompetent, unfocused, and intent only on increasing your wealth – avoiding taxes, cheating the people who work for you, etc.

Most importantly, however, the American public is starting to see how you conspired with our enemy, Russia, to acquire your office at the cost of our democracy. You can keep on trying to divert attention away from this, you can call it “fake news” all you want, but in the end the truth will come out. The truth came out during the reign of Tricky Dick, and you are a lot worse than he was. An indisputable trail of evidence, showing how your campaign conspired with Putin, will emerge, just like the Watergate tapes unexpectedly entered the scene during John Dean’s testimony.

You may think you’re protected from impeachment by the Republican majorities in Congress, but don’t count on it, sir. As the truth emerges, these Republicans will desert your sinking ship of state like a pack of rats, an apt simile, I must say.

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
