Dear Mr. Trump

It’s pretty obvious by now that the American president-elect, Donald J. Trump, has a pretty thin skin and a temper that can be too easily triggered. And usually he wastes no time in exacting his revenge for whatever he perceives as a dis or a slight aimed at him.

Back in November, one particular slight came from the cast of the Broadway musical Hamilton when, after their evening’s performance, they took advantage of having Mike Pence in the audience that night and directed an impromptu speech at the vice-president elect, asking him and the Trump administration to show compassion and understanding toward the nation’s many ethnic citizens. Although Pence was leaving the theatre at the time (and did not wait around for the complete speech), he later said he took no offence at the cast’s opportunistic action. Trump, however, was not so magnanimous.

I have a few things to say about a US president-to-be who can be riled so easily, and who feels it so necessary to launch an attack (verbal, Twitter, or otherwise) at anyone or any group he feels has slighted him in the least.

About wordswithbrad

Let's see. I guess first and foremost I am a life wanderer on a journey of discovery and experience. Can you tell I am a child of the sixties? Along the way I have become many things ... a College Professor (now retired after 28 wonderful years), a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, a singer/songwriter, a musician, an artist, a world traveler, a fan of science fiction and history, and a student of human nature. But my greatest accomplishments are being father to two of the most amazing and accomplished young men I have ever known, and husband to the incredible and delightful woman who made that possible.
