A letter to Mr. Trump about hopelessness …

Dear Mr. Trump,

You don’t really need me to pile on criticism about your latest misogynist tweets. You’ve heard it sufficiently from everyone by now: boorish, childish, depraved, unbecoming a president. It wouldn’t serve a useful purpose to prove that such sick, narcissistic, disgusting behavior as you repeatedly exhibit is not in the best interests of our country. You are hopeless, a disgrace to the United States, and proof that our democracy is gravely at risk.

As always, in my letters to you, I try to offer you sound advice, even though I know you will ignore it. I will try again, however.

Ignore the media. Stop calling everything you don’t like “fake news.” Do your job, and if you do a good job then trust that the facts will get out. Don’t obsess about the Russian investigation. The truth will emerge, and, if as you claim you are innocent, that fact will get out too. Stop obsessing about the appearance of women. Keep your mouth – and Twitter feed – shut.

Like I said … hopeless.

Very truly yours,

Bruce J. Berger
