So, Mr. President, as to South Korea …

Dear President Trump:

So the news lately is that you promised that a great armada of warships were heading to protect South Korea, yet in fact they were going in the opposite direction.

Well, one can easily understand your confusion. Those traffic signs in the Pacific Ocean are notoriously unreliable, what with changing currents and such. One minute the arrow points north and, if you blink your eyes, the next minute the arrow points south. Anyone could get mixed up.

Anyway, can you really be blamed for not knowing where South Korea is? That 1920 map of the world hanging in your office should not have been hung there by your trusted advisers.

But, seriously, Mr. President, you figured out that everyone would know you were lying, because you moved your lips, right?

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
