I thought I had, if not a talent for writing, at least moderate skill such that I was able to communicate with words and make my thoughts, my meaning, clear. I have failed in that, and am thinking that if I am going to continue to write, I must take some classes, study harder, learn the tools of my trade better. I am a failure … a complete and total failure … as a writer.
Let me ask you, dear friends and readers … have I not made myself clear about my feelings toward the MITWH, Donald Trump? Have I somehow been too milquetoast in my daily diatribe (yes, I realize there is an oxymoron in there)? Do any of you think, based on my posts from the past two years, that I actually like, support or approve of Trump? Where oh where have I failed?
Yes, yes … I am rambling and must get straight to the point. The point, then, is that Donald Trump thinks I am a fan of his! He has even begun emailing me! I was tempted to delete my entire email box, burn its contents and close that account … an account that I have had for more than 25 years! But, there were some special and important emails in there, so I could not do that. Here is just one sample:
No matter what the Fake News Media reports, we’re working to advance our agenda every day.
In the first 9 months alone, we’ve delivered on our promises and have proven we’re ready to fight for what we believe is right for the future of this great country.
We did it together in 2016, and there’s no doubt in my mind we have the momentum to keep it going. But I need to know you’re committed to our movement, Friend.
This is your last chance to update your record before our end-of-quarter deadline, and I’m hoping you’ll do so by renewing your Sustaining Membership:
Please contribute $250, $100, $75, $50, $35, or $10 to renew your Sustaining Membership for the 2017 year.
We cannot allow the Fake News Media and obstructionist Democrats to flood the airwaves and mislead the American people, Friend, and they are our strongest opponent yet.
So please, be sure to renew your 2017 Sustaining Membership before the September 30 deadline.
Donald J. Trump
P.S. – I’ve requested a list of every person who steps up and renews their 2017 Sustaining Membership before the September 30 deadline. I hope to see your name on the list.
See what I mean? He called me ‘friend’. How could I possibly have miscommunicated my scorn, my wrath, my utter disdain for him to the extent that he considers me a ‘friend’? I am a failure! And … how did I get on the “nice” list anyway? I want to be on the “naughty” list! And does anybody else detect an implied threat in that very last line?
But then, it got even worse! Look what else he sent me …
Why on earth would anybody want a Donald Trump coin??? Why, oh why, would they think that I, of all people, would want to own such a monstrosity? The only reason I can think of is that I have failed to use my words to clarify my position. And can you imagine if I took their advice and gave this as a holiday gift to my friends??? I would not only have no friends left, but would likely be run out of town on a rail!
Sigh. I must sign up today for some classes on writing, to learn to express myself better. Please, dear friends, help me out and let me know what is missing in my snark that has enabled Trump to consider me a “friend”. I need all the help I can get!
