Dear F*cking Lunatic: An open letter to Donald Trump





like most of you, I read Donald Trump’s recent New York Times interview with mouth immutably agape. Then I read this part:

(Read Full story at https://www.nytimes.com/2017/12/28/us/politics/trump-interview-excerpts.html)

“Yeah, China. … China’s been. … I like very much President Xi. He treated me better than anybody’s ever been treated in the history of China. You know that.”

And fuck me sideways with John Holmes’ fossilized dick, that was quite enough. I'd long since surpassed my recommended yearly allowance of crazy, and as if prodded by some divine imprimatur, this open letter to our “president” poured like incandescent dung from a Chernobyl reindeer’s asshole:

Dear Fucking Lunatic,

I read with interest your recent interview with The New York Times. I couldn’t get past the bit about your being the most popular visitor in the history of fucking China — a country that’s only 2,238 years old, give or take.

Do you know how fucking insane you sound, you off-brand butt plug? That's like the geopolitical equivalent of “that stripper really likes me” — only 10,000 times crazier and less self-aware.

You are fucking exhausting. Every day is a natural experiment in determining how long 300 million people can resist coring out their own assholes with an ice auger. Every time I hear a snippet of your Queens-tinged banshee larynx farts, I want to crawl up my own ass with a Union Jack and claim my sigmoid colon for HRH Queen Elizabeth II.

We are fucking tired. As bad as we all thought your presidency would be when Putin got you elected, it’s been inestimably worse.

You called a hostile, nuclear-armed head of state “short and fat.” How the fuck does that help?

You accused a woman — a former friend, no less — of showing up at your resort bleeding from the face and begging to get in. You, you, YOU — the guy who looks like a Christmas haggis inexplicably brought to life by Frosty’s magic hat — yes, you of all people said that.

You attempted — with evident fucking glee — to get 24 million people thrown off their health insurance.

You gave billions away to corporations and the already wealthy while simultaneously telling struggling poor people that you were doing exactly the opposite.

You endorsed a pedophile, praised brutal dictators, and defended LITERAL FUCKING NAZIS!

Ninety-nine percent of everything you say is either false, crazy, incoherent, just plain cruel, or a rancid paella of all four.

Oh, by the way, Puerto Rico is still FUBAR. You got yourself and your family billions in tax breaks for Christmas. What do they get? More paper towels?

Enough, enough, enough, enough! For the love of God and all that is holy, good, and pure, would you please, finally and forever, shut your feculent KFC-hole until you have something valuable — or even marginally civil — to say?

You are a fried dick sandwich with a side of schlongs. If chlamydia and gonorrhea had a son, you’d appoint him HHS secretary. You are a disgraceful, pustulant hot stew full of casuistry, godawful ideas, unintelligible non sequiturs, and malignant rage.

You are the perfect circus orangutan diaper from Plato’s World of Forms.

So happy new year, Mr. Pr*sident. And fuck you forever.

Oh, and Pence, you oleaginous house ferret. Fuck you, too.

Sincerely,

Everyone

And look at the major airports trending tonight. Thousands of Europeans stranded for hours at customs waiting to be "tested".

One of my sons, who is ill (nothing to do with Covid virus) got trapped at a Spanish airport where he's been since around midday yesterday.The airport closes down tomorrow at 8am and they go into lockdown. The only food left available is at the Burger King.

People, like my son, arrived for their scheduled flights after being told all was ok - but got to the airport to find total pandemonium and two planeloads of people bound for France had had their planes cancelled as they were boarding, as France had locked down. News of the Spanish lock-down only came about half an hour later to those at the airport. My son's on his own and ill and we (the rest of the family) haven't slept as we've been taking turns in talking him through it.

Which is probably why I've been crying, sitting here playing videos from France, Italy and Spain. Have you seen them? All the people (including a well-known opera singer) locked down in their apartments have been coming out to their balconies and singing or playing beautiful music to keep each others spirits up.

It's so uplifting to get away from the petty bickering and blame-throwing and political bull-shit that are flooding the airwaves, to see how people, ordinary people, are reminding each other of the beauty and wonder of the world and reaching out to each other from isolated balconies in towns & cities all over Europe.

Though no-one is singing in our family till we get our boy back.

Hope all turns out well for your son, Romany. Let us know when he gets out of this horrible situation.

Keep us posted, Romany. We wish you, him, and your family well and a fast exit from the airport to home. Yes, we've seen the videos of those creative positive people on their balconies.


::::

Our son as CFO and VP of Corp affairs oversees the finances and corporate affairs of ten hospitals and clinics - I am just glad his office is not physically frontline. But he has so many stresses already in his job and this responsibility is a huge stressor right now. He is more exhausted than usual. Most universities have cancelled in person classes and students may be working online from home, so my grans are not being exposed. Other schools are closed for three weeks and other gatherings are limited.

This morning I had to go to Urgent Care, of all places, because a skin biopsy I had Thursday is infected and I must not let infection get to my replaced hip.

I was impressed -and told them so - by those frontline workers who were there tending to people at this time. They did not allow anyone with a cough in as special clinics have been set up for the CV testing. We are so thankful to have our universal healthcare and hope that people will do as told by our governments who have acted quickly and responsibly - so the system is not overwhelmed. They have told us to stay home unless absolutely necessary and self isolate if we have just travelled, in order to protect those immune compromised or elderly people. They have advised CDN travellers to get home while they still can.

We have cancelled all our appts for a couple of weeks and hope everybody does the same so Canada will not become the hot spots Europe and UK have become.

Are your country's citizens hoarding supplies or even profiteering as many Canadians are doing? I do not understand their fascination with hoarding toilet paper for a respiratory illness.We are doing the opposite - trying to use up all our supplies of food and other necessities as we are moving towards the end of April and want to move as little as possible.

Be well, everyone!

Sorry I didn't get back to you before this but yes! We have our boy back. At least our little family is all together.

But it did bring home to me the seriousness of the whole situation - the tragedies which have/are/will occur because of this will not all centre around physical health.

When he told me about the two planes (One of which had already fully boarded) bound for France and how they couldn't get back into their country -, to families, friends, homes,or even people who speak the same language... and I saw how many people's lives had changed the instant the "Cancelled" notice went up on the board I suddenly got a dose of reality, I think.

And it made me doubly thankful how lucky we were - even if our "loved one" only got back by the skin of his teeth - on the last plane - a charter flight which was sent over - and was the last plane to fly out of Gran Canaria.

As to what's happening here - well Bojo might be a clown but he did the right thing by us:- every person who can't work will get 80% of their salary for the duration; taxes are suspended, mortgage and rent payments ditto, government loans are available to those who are in hardship, on a no-interest basis. So at least when everything shuts down tomorrow the only thing people have to worry about is not getting sick - all the tragic stories of family businesses being ruined, and people losing the roofs over their heads etc. etc. that were tearing people up have been settled. So I think, from what a lot of the people around me say, their biggest problem will be boredom!

However, as all the Uni's have gone on-line, as have the British Library, and Museums, and the National Portrait Gallery...along with all the content of other galleries, museums, libraries, universities...across the world, I know a lot of people who plan on taking full advantage: imagine a day spent in an Art Gallery with no crowds of students, where you can drink your coffee & eat your lunch while looking at the exhibits, for as long as you like - I shan't get bored!

I know you have all kinds of problems health-wise, Hope, so I'm glad you've self-isolated - but don't take ANY risks at all now. Everywhere except China and South Korea who have already peaked, is seeing sharp increases in infections and deaths as you know. So I guess the rest of us have just got to sit tight as we each go through the same process. And do our best not to become one of the numbers in our own country's infection/death rate. Stay safe. Stay well.
